FLEMINGTON, NJ - Community art space Flemington DIY will hold a karaoke-themed fundraiser to support its operations and arts programming here.

The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Aug. 11 at Lone Eagle Brewing and will include prizes and special guest singers.


Flemington DIY opened its doors three years ago under a partnership with the Flemington Business Improvement District as “The 90 Main Project.” The organization has since become financially independent, and co-founder and former Flemington resident Jeff Hersch says the switch has opened the door for new opportunities.

“We are dedicated to keeping Flemington’s arts community thriving.” Hersch says. As a non-profit, “we have now been able to apply for grants to continue our current programming and add more.”

Celebrating three years of service on main street, Flemington DIY hosts a number of projects including frequent knitting group, tai chi classes, social theory reading group, tap dancing classes and more.

The venue serves as not only a meeting place, but a gallery and performance venue. It offers multi-purpose rooms and work space providing music recording and production, painting and art studios, rehearsal rooms and a free library.

Flemington DIY has partnered with a number of groups including Hunterdon Academy of the Arts, Hunterdon Central High School, Oldwick Community Players, Jersey Battered Women’s Service, Hunterdon County Anti-Racism Coalition and the Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Flemington DIY.

End 'Gun Free Zones,' Harden Soft Targets

To the editor:

In response to the Governor's recent signing of legislation restricting law-abiding gun owners to 10 rounds of ammunition and rejecting calls to address the uneven playing field existing vis-à-vis some single mom alone with her child fending for herself against some armed assailant packing who knows how many rounds is something a Politburo thug would appreciate!

Candidates 'Weaponized' News Article

To the editor:

I was dismayed to see my 2014 news reportage inaccurately weaponized by council members Marc Hain and Brooke Warden in their campaign flier attacking Al Brewer. The headline “School security at issue: Flemington-Raritan board member accused of leaking secrets” is less than a half-truth, given the ensuing revelation.

Marc and Brook ignored my follow-up report in ...
