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 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!

Operation Take Back @ Cranford Police Department
Apr 27 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Operation Take Back @ Cranford Police Department | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

On Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Cranford Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 17th opportunity in nine years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the Cranford Police Department at 8 Springfield Avenue, rear entrance. (We cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons (more than 900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Ameri cans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
