Video: The fountain is back in 2016
Don’t let the night-time temperatures fool you.
It must be spring. The fountain is flowing again on the Green!
Ron Ayres flipped the switch around 2:30 pm on Monday.
Ayres is the nephew of Dick Deskovick, co-founder of First Morris Bank (now Provident Bank), who donated the fountain and statue, titled Patriot’s Farewell, in 2001.
Last year’s bitterly cold winter burst fountain pipes that cost nearly $1,000 to repair, Ayres said. But everything survived the mild winter of 2015-16 in good shape, he said.
