“Who Is That At My Feeder?” @ Cranford Community Center
Nov 12 @ 7:00 pm
“Who Is That At My Feeder?” @ Cranford Community Center | Cranford | New Jersey | United States
Calling all bird lovers!  Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, November 12th at 7:00 PM at the Cranford Community Center for the presentation, “Who Is That At My Feeder?” Pete Axelrod from Wild Birds Unlimited of Scotch Plains will discuss how attracting birds is a great way to bring us closer to nature while offering hours of enjoyment.  This program will introduce us to the birds that commonly come to backyard feeders and how to distinguish between very similar species. He will also discuss unusual birds that have appeared this season.  Birds add another dimension to the artistry of a garden with their striking colors, behaviors and allure of their songs!
 
Pete has been a nature enthusiast since the age of five.  His passion led him to study Wildlife Biology and Natural History Interpretation.  Pete has volunteered in avian population studies, wild bird rehabilitation, habitat restoration, wildlife education and birding ventures throughout New Jersey (with NJ Audubon, Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and The Raptor Trust). He enjoys cycling, kayaking and hiking and always has his binoculars handy!  
 
The Cranford Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford, NJ.  The program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required, but seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  This presentation is sponsored by the Hanson Park Conservancy.  To learn more, please visit our website, www.hansonparkconservancy.com or like us on Facebook.

Marketspace Vendor Events joins The Red Mill Museum Village’s 10th annual Festival of Trees and Dicken’s Days to bring you the Winter Village at The Red Mill.

This three-day German-style outdoor, tented and heated, winter craft market in the heart of Clinton, New Jersey features over 40 local craft artisans, vintage peddlers, and food trucks.

The Red Mill Museum Village’s annual Festival of Trees is comprised of a decorated tree and wreath silent auction fundraiser benefiting the museum’s preservation. Guests are invited to tour 12 historic buildings on the beautifully decorated grounds of the museum while enjoying performances by Clinton’s ‘Dickens Days’ theatrical carolers.

After visiting our German-style holiday market, step back into the Victorian era in Downtown Clinton as you visit with Father Christmas, role play with Charles Dickens and Scrooge, and board a horse-drawn carriage for a tour of the town. The tree lighting is a show stopper you don’t want to miss. Make a day of it in Clinton, NJ!

The Red Mill is the most photographed location in the state of New Jersey! Please feel free to bring your camera and take photographs.

“21-21” Forum on Veterans’ Affairs @ Cranford VFW Post 335
Dec 10 @ 6:00 pm
“21-21” Forum on Veterans’ Affairs @ Cranford VFW Post 335
The Union County Prosecutor’s Office is joining forces with a number of partner organizations to host a public forum on veterans’ affairs, part of a continuing series of public events presented as part of the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General’s 21-County, 21st-Century Community Policing Project, acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo announced Wednesday.
The forum is scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 10 at Cranford VFW Post 335, located at 479 South Avenue East in Cranford. Admission is free, and citizens of all ages, veterans, as well as local representatives of social service agencies and other organizations serving veterans, are encouraged to attend.
A panel of subject matter experts will serve as the centerpiece of the forum, with Prosecutor’s Office Assistant Prosecutor Tiffany Wilson, who administers the state’s Veterans Diversion Program in Union County, serving as moderator. Also scheduled to speak are U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Justice Outreach Specialist Mark Correale, New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs Assistant Director of Enforcement Gregory K. Turner, VFW Department of New Jersey Judge Advocate Jay Boxwell, Union County Office of Veterans Services Coordinator Janna Williams, Union County Human Relations Commissioner Peter McTiernan, and retired Union Township Police Department Sgt. Michael Boll, whose work with the Operation Rebound nonprofit group supporting permanently disabled veterans has won him several community awards.
More than 15,000 veterans call Union County home, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Statewide, the veteran population numbers greater than 400,000, or about 5 percent of New Jersey’s total. The purpose of this forum, and many others like it going on across the state during recent months, is to spread awareness of the many various forms of social services available to benefit veterans.
“Veterans across Union County and across the state selflessly answered a call to serve their nation and its armed forces,” Prosecutor Ruotolo said. “We owe them not only a debt of gratitude, but a helping hand, whenever it’s needed.”
The Prosecutor’s Office thanks Judge Advocate Boxwell and Cranford VFW Post 335 Commander Col. Drew Burns for hosting this event. For more information, call 908-527-4621 or email [email protected].
