Volunteers Urgently Needed To Help Deliver Meals To Seniors In East Brunswick

February 26, 2014 at 10:32 PM

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Volunteers Needed!

Volunteers of the East Brunswick Senior Meals Program have been delivering a noontime meal to homebound East Brunswick residents for the past 28 years.   Dedicated volunteers have delivered meals five days a week, fifty two weeks a year throughout these 28 years. The program provides both a hot meal and a kind word to our frailest residents on a daily basis.  The program has helped maintain and sustain our parents and grandparents in their homes for as long as possible and in many cases until the end of their lives.  There is no way to compute the number of lives that have benefitted from this remarkable program during the past 28 years.   As the program enters its twenty-ninth year, it is in desperate need of new volunteers.  A commitment of as little as two hours per month is all that is required.  Of course more volunteer hours will be gladly accepted.  If you are able to assist in this worthwhile endeavor or know someone who is able to assist, please call Donna Faulkenberry at the East Brunswick Department on Aging at 732-390-6809.

Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philippa Gregory

Three Sisters, Three Queens by Philiippa Gregory (Touchstone of Simon and Schuster, 2016)

 

When one reads an historical novel by Philippa Gregory, s/he is transported magically through the power of words to that era. Given the turbulence of the recent political scene in America, returning once again to the complicated and violent Tudor reign helped me to escape the ugliness of the ...

This all-encompassing theory would tie together general relativity (large scale and high mass galaxies, stars, etc), quantum theory (quantum mechanics, quarks, atoms, subatomic particles), and Newtonian physics (gravity on small bodies, gas laws, electromagnetism) to ...

‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales' Captures Old-Fashioned Nostalgia at Shakespeare Theatre

The play opens with three children and then a chorus singing “In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,” a melancholy tune that conjures visions of Swansea, a village in Wales,  with “fallen snow on ...
