Timely project: New Jersey city raises $10,000 for new town clock

    All the “time” cliches in the book aren’t enough to trump the apparent generosity of the residents of one New Jersey city, who raised $10,000 for a new town clock.

     

    The Gloucester County Times reports residents of Woodbury put together the donations last week to install a town clock by the Woodbury Station Cafe.

    The project, which was launched earlier this summer, will cost $26,000 with an additional $15,000 required for maintenance expenses, according to the report.

    The Gloucester County Times says the project was the result of the success of a new eatery and an email from a sales representative of a clock manufacturer, who suggested the clock.
