The Mendham Brush Association is a non-profit community organization committed to promoting public spirit and cooperation in Mendon and the surrounding communities. Members are also known as Mendon Brothers of the Brush. The group was founded in 1967 as a way to help celebrate Mendon’s 300th Anniversary. Similar to this year’s 350th celebration, they were an integral part of planning and organizing events for the town’s anniversary back in the 1960’s.
“We are very excited to take this role in celebrating Mendon’s 350th Anniversary. As a local community bank, we are proud to sponsor the Block Party to help commemorate this milestone. The Block Party is sure to be an exciting and fun event for everyone in our community,” said Charles River Bank President and CEO Jack Hamilton, who is also a proud resident of Mendon.
