Throughout 2012, bits and pieces of Mahwah news and culture were captured on video. Some of our choices for the Top 5 Mahwah videos of 2012 depict snippets of sad news – like the mother of a Ramapo College student killed in a car crash asking his peers to remember his character, or a fire destroying six condo units in Society Hill.
Others show exciting parts of Mahwah’s culture, like a concert by members of the Les Paul Trio in the late inventor’s honor, and a dance benefit organized by Mahwah High schoolers to raise money for the Gift of Life.
And one is not a Patch video, but one we posted from a YouTube postcard enthusiast who gave us a glimpse of the township’s history.

And, a couple of runners-up. These aren’t Patch videos, but good ones nonetheless. First, Dream Room Makeover, a charity organization that operates similarly to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, submitted a video it made of a project volunteers worked on for a 9-year-old Mahwah girl and her family. Second is a Mahwah Fire Department video meant to attract new recruits to the department.
