Support our Bridgewater Essential Workers & Medical Personnel

You may have seen videos of NYC clapping and cheering for their first responders, medical personnel and essential workers each evening. Did you know there's a movement to try to show this same support in Bridgewater?

Many suburban neighborhoods like our own have been stepping outside their homes and clapping in support of medical workers and essential personnel at 7 PM each night. We encourage you to show your support and feel more connected to our community during this time of social distancing, Set a reminder and get outside at 7 PM. Stay in front of their own home and continue to socially distance but would come out to clap, cheer, ring a bell or horn as a show of support for our all of those on the front lines and keeping us safe.
