    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    Established by John Y. Dater II in 1892, the Ramsey Journal presented news and views of interest to the people of Northwest Bergen County. For 75 years, until the paper was sold in 1967, three generations of the Dater family chronicled the births, deaths and marriages, triumphs and defeats, trials and controversies of the communities it served. During a period of time that spanned five wars, a great depression, and the rapid post-war suburbanization of Bergen County, the editors and publishers of the Ramsey Journal preserved the rich first draft of history of Ramsey, Mahwah, Allendale, Upper Saddle River, Saddle River and Waldwick.
