Not only was the day a beautiful gathering of the many different cul- tures that make the Evesham commu- nity unique, but the day also served as a strong reminder of all that unites Evesham’s residents, no matter their background. Although attendees were of many different cultures, one trait they all shared was an eagerness to experience something new by learning from those different than themselves. Festivalgoers were encouraged to experience one another’s culture throughout the afternoon, while also bonding together with their friends and neighbors. The day was also marked by a visit from Gov. Phil Murphy, who toured the festival displays and spoke with many of the presenters and attendees.

Prison officials saw a man outside the downtown facility, attaching items to a line, the federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement. “Security camera footage showed a rope being pulled up the side of the building facing Arch Street,” the state- ment said.
