CROSSWICKS, NJ -
The Crosswicks Library Company held a special ceremony today, to introduce members of the community to "Alice's Way", a memorial redecoration of the space behind the library, to remember Alice Bumbera.
"Alice is a very unique person. She's not the kind of person you make a plaque for," said Crosswicks Library Board President Lynn Sichel. "We had this space outside the library... and we thought what a beautiful way to put a walkway."
In addition to the walkway, The Crosswicks Library had a sign made to mimic a street sign with the words "Alice's Way", and that will stand in the garden for many years to come.
Alice Bumbera was very well known in the community, serving as librarian in Crosswicks for 40 years. Born in Walla Walla, Washington, Alice was a U.S. Army veteran where she served as a member of the Women's Army Corps.
Locally, Mrs. Bumbera was the secretary of the Crosswicks Community Association, was active with the Daughters of the American Revolution, and was a past president of the sports booster club at Northern Burlington High School.
Alice Bumbera died September of 2014 at the age of 78.
To see the memorial sign and garden, The Crosswicks Library is open every day except Sundays and Fridays.
