Conception Church in Spotswood.

There will be limited parking adjacent to the funeral home on Evergreen Boulevard on

Fire departments wishing to pay their respects the day of the funeral are asked to
stage all apparatus in the Immaculate Conception Church parking lot, 23 Manalapan
Road, Spotswood, NJ 08884 no later than 9:15 am on Tuesday morning to line up in

ALL VEHICLES ARE TO GO TO THE STAGING AREA ONLY.


For any further information or questions please email
Assistant Captain Robert Drako at

ATTENTION SPOTSWOOD RESIDENTS:

Due to the expected size of the turnout of fire departments and the funeral
procession moving through town, the Spotswood Police Department will be shutting
down sections of Summerhill Road, Main Street, and Manalapan Road at different
times between approximately 9:30 and 11:30 am.  

We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this very difficult
time and thank you in advance.
