4 Centuries In A Weekend @ Crane-Phillips House Museum | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

The Cranford Historical Society’s Crane-Phillips House Museum at 124 North Union Avenue will once again participate in Union County’s Annual “Four Centuries in a Weekend.” The museum will be open on Saturday, October 19th from 10:00am to 5:00pm and on Sunday, October 20th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. This year’s theme is “Saving The Past and Moving Forward to Technology of the Present.”

The Crane-Phillips House Museum, a Victorian Cottage, modest home of the 1870’s, shows what life was like without plumbing or electricity. During Four Centuries in a Weekend, visitors will see how implements in the kitchen and throughout the house have evolved through technology and pictures will be at each implement showing the technology of today. All of the inventions in the past are hands on to all who would like to try them to see what it was like to do household chores, etc. Also, Trustees and Volunteers will be on hand to give a tour of each room in the unique living museum which is on the National and State Registry.

Materials for the weekend tour are available from the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs Office and will be at all sites.

Cranford CROP Walk 2019 @ Cranford United Methodist Church | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

Cranford’s CROP Walk begins at CUMC on Oct 20 @ 1:45PM! Ask your house of worship how to support your walkers (or to walk!).

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen.

For nearly half a century, CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.

Stand with neighbors in your community who rely on food assistance programs. Partner with parents worldwide as they ensure a bright future for their children. Support those struggling in the face of grinding poverty and open up new doors of opportunity for them.

Tens of thousands of CROP Hunger Walkers are committed to building a hunger-free world. Join the movement!

CENSUS JOB FAIR! @ Casano Community Center | Roselle Park | New Jersey | United States

Roselle Park – The Borough of Roselle Park and the U.S. Census Bureau will be co-hosting a job fair for residents interested in working for the U.S. Census Bureau in late 2019 and early 2020.

The 2020 Census Job Fair is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at the Casano Community Center (314 Chestnut Street).

At this job fair and information session, people will be able to learn about why the census is important to their community and find out what job opportunities are available to the residents of Roselle Park. Applications can be completed online. Applicants can even use their smartphones to apply. Census staff will be available to help with the application and answer questions.

The U.S. Census Bureau is looking to hire 63,000 people in the state of New Jersey for a variety of positions. There are field positions (e.g. enumerators) and office positions (e.g. clerks and IT specialists) available. The hours are flexible. Once hired you give the U.S. Census Bureau your hours of availability each week and you will only be asked to work during those hours. You are paid for training as well.

The goal of the 2020 census is to “count everyone once, only once, and in the right place,” the Census Bureau says. The United States holds a census every 10 years.

Those interested in a 2020 census job can apply online at www.2020census.gov/jobs.
