Volume 8 • Issue 9 August/September 2016 newcommunity.org


It’s a big year for the city of Newark, which is marking its 350th anniversary in 2016, and New Community’s Annual Parade and Festival is playing a unique role in the city-wide festivities bycelebrating the corporation’s nearly five decade history.

“Out of the ashes came hope” is this year’s parade theme and will take a look back on the decades of New Community’s impact on the city since the agency’s founding in 1968 by Monsignor William J. Linder. The parade is Saturday, September 17, and begins at 12 p.m. at the corner of South Orange and Littleton avenues.

Heavily armored fighting machinery—that’s what comes to mind when you think of a tank.

This “Tank,” however, happens to be Robert Allen, a longtime security officer at New Community who retired in May and received the nickname “Tank” while playing semi-pro football years ago.

Contrary to a vehicle used in combat zones, Allen seems to only be heavily armed with good manners.
