14th Annual Seniors American Brunch

The Borough of Roselle Park is celebrating its 14th Annual Seniors American Brunch on Friday, April 26, 2019, from 12:00 p.m.to 3:00 p.m. at the Casano Community Center.

The “Seniors American Brunch” is an opportunity to shine a light on many important issues and trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They are taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. They expect to continue to live their lives to the fullest, and they are insisting on changes that make that possible. This event is a perfect occasion to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.

The “Seniors American Brunch” is FREE and will feature live entertainment by the James Dean Orchestras who will sing, make you dance, and laugh. Brunch will be served during the event. The Casano Community Center is located at 314 Chestnut Street, Roselle Park, NJ 07204.

Mayor Sig and the Borough Council invites seniors 55 and over to join in the festivities!

To participate, sponsor or for more information, please call the Casano Community Center Director Rupen Shah at 908-245-0666.

Greta's Run @ Roosevelt Intermediate School | Westfield | New Jersey | United States

5K RUN • WALK • ROLL • VOLUNTEER • DONATE • SPONSOR | April 28

Greta’s Run is the principal fundraiser for Greta’s Run Foundation, a volunteer-led, granting-making 501(c)3 nonprofit.

Greta’s Run is organized in memory of Greta Schoenemann, a Westfield High School freshman who died from injuries sustained on the first anniversary of 9/11 when a tree fell on her during lunch. Her childhood friends, Jayne Ruotolo and Ben Nanna, founded Greta’s Run in 2013, to continue the work Greta was already doing. In honor of Greta’s sister Elise, who has cerebral palsy, all proceeds benefit people with special & adaptive needs.

“The Westfield Public Schools join with the community in upholding the values of kindness and compassion that have become Greta’s legacy. The students, athletes and staff look forward to helping make Greta’s Run a success.”
