Denville MAC Strings Concert on Cablevision in Memory of Nick Picciano

Presently there is a new program on Denville TV Cablevision, Denville MAC Strings Concert, airing Wednesday on Channel 21 (Public Access) at 7:00 – 7:30 PM. This strings program is made available by Denville MAC (Municipal Alliance Committee) for the children ( and adults) of Denville to replace the extracurricular music program cut from the school program due to budget cuts.
I, with a heavy heart, declare this program in memory of a very devoted member of Denville MAC, Nicholas Picciano who dedicated and volunteered a lot of hours to Denville through MAC and many many other committees through the years. I found out, through his blessed family members, wife, Mary and daughter Barbara, that Nick passed away early this morning, after a month long illness. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Nick Picciano and be allowed to interview him for Cablevision Public Access Channel. Nick Picciano was a teacher, guidance counselor, vice principal and principal in the Denville School System from from 1955 to 1990. And Nick continued to serve Denville, in his, so to say, years of retirement, volunteering in so many committees. When I interviewed Nick I asked him when he slept. Nick would always meet a former student, when he walked through Denville. I consider myself privileged to have known Nick. And I also feel so devastated at the news of Nick’s too early passing. For more information on Nick’s funeral services visit Norman Dean’s Funeral Home website (in Denville) Visitation is on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at Norman Deans from 2:00-4:00 PM and 7:00-9:00 PM.

Who’s Who in Denville

Nick Picciano
A Teacher’s Odyssey through the Denville School System
to be aired on Cablevision Public Access Channel 21
Wednesday June 23, 2010 7:00- 7:30

In the 1930/1931 Denville Herald Newspaper there was a section called Who’s Who in Denville where notable citizens of the town were written about. So I thought that woudl be a good title, for a Cablevision Program, to present such remarkeable residents of Denville today. The first such individual that I would like to present, on this cablevision program, is Nicholas A. Picciano, a man of many facets. In this show, which I created from over two hours of interviewing Nick, on video, focuses on Nick’s experiences as a teacher in the Denville School system from 1955 to the 1970’s. Nick proceeded to become a guidance counselor, in Valleyview School, Denville, in the 1970’s. And then Nick move onto the position of Vice Principal, and sometimes acting Principal (in the Denville Schools) in the 1980’s until 1990 when he retired from his Education Career. Then Nick moved on to dedicate his energies and influences in other areas of Denville, Now, in his supposedly retiring years, Nick volunteers on so many committees that I questioned Nick on when he sleeps. I am hoping to create another show or two, within a couple of months, of Nick speaking of his other interests. In the meantime I believe you would find this show interesting, as Nick reveals his secrets in teaching.

Several new shows have been uploaded on the Denville Youtube Channel,

1. Bike Rodeo 2009 ( to promote Bike Rodeo 2010. I hope to upload 2010 Bike Rodeo, that occurred on June 10, 2010, shortly)
