14th Annual Seniors American Brunch @ Casano Community Center
Apr 26 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

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.

VIP Pet Care Clinic @ Pet Supplies Plus - Garwood NJ | Garwood | New Jersey | United States

VIP Petcare makes it convenient for you to get your pet the preventive care it needs! Please bring your cat in a secure carrier and make sure your dog is on a leash. Clinics are held at local pet and feed retail stores, and no appointment is necessary. VIP Petcare staff will be located inside or right outside the store. When you walk up to the clinic area, our caring staff of pet lovers will walk you through the process.

We will also send you reminders so your pet can remain protected from disease and parasites. Your pet’s records are stored safely in our database so if you ever need proof of pet vaccination or have questions about your pet’s health history, we’re simply a call or a click away.

Once your pet is seen by one of our veterinarians, you will become part of the VIP Petcare family. During your visit the clinic staff will discuss the lifestyle of your pet, under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian, so you know exactly what your pets need to stay healthy, happy and safe.

The Borough of Roselle Park presents the 19th “National Night Out” on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Michael Mauri Gazebo Park, Chestnut Street.

National Night Out is a community-building event that aims to include everyone in Roselle Park. The event is sponsored by the Roselle Park Police Department’s Neighborhood Watch program, a group that wants to do more than just crime prevention, but instead create a “community network to provide a safer place to live.” 

The Roselle Park Police Department, Fire Department, and Union County EMS invite you and your family to learn about safety. Some of the safety topics will be bike, water, crime, and fire safety. You can also enjoy live music, games, and free giveaways. Police cars and trucks, as well as fire trucks will join the National Night Out, so that children can learn more about the vehicles.

The evening should truly be an affair for the whole family to enjoy. Do not forget to turn your porch light on that evening to show your support against crime. 

For more information, please call Detective Rich Cocca at 908-245-6187 or [email protected].
