About this Event

Residents of Cranford, New Jersey are invited to participate in our annual cookout event!

Come on out, Cranford, to our annual town-wide cookout! Eating dinner as a family has been shown to reduce risky behavior in kids, and that’s what we celebrate with our Town-Wide BBQ. We partner with Cranford Police, Cranford Fire Department, Cranford Public Works, and other town officials to feed you free burgers and dogs in hopes that you’ll be part of our mission to prevent underage substance abuse. Food, fun, family. It’s a Cranford tradition!

The Westfield Area YMCA Achievers began 21 years ago as part of a national program focusing on college readiness, career development, leadership, life skills and mentoring for diverse high school students from Union County. The goal is to raise the academic standards of young people, expose students to diverse career options and inspire them to reach their goals. Achievers also participate in community service activities, celebrate their history, culture and traditions, receive college prep tutoring and essay assistance. This program is available at little or no cost to participants.
