EAST AMWELL, NJ - Hunterdon’s fifth annual Community Day is underway and continues until 4 p.m. today, June 2.

The event, sponsored by the county and the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce, is held at the county’s South County Park / Hunterdon County Fairgrounds, located on Route 179 just outside of Ringoes.

Thousands of people flocked to the park, with some arriving before the official opening to take advantage of the secure shredding event, sponsored by County Clerk Mary Melfi.

Local businesses, non-profit organizations and representatives from many of Hunterdon’s 26 municipalities are in attendance.

 “Community Day has truly become a place where we can showcase and celebrate all the great towns, organizations, non- profits, the business community and great resources of Hunterdon County,” said Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce President Chris Phelan.

Hunterdon Healthcare is offering face painting and other interactive activities within their tent, including blood pressure checks. In addition, they have a fun obstacle course in partnership with the Healthy Hunterdon Work Force Initiative.

A petting zoo and meet and greet with retired racing greyhounds is also part of the fun.

A Man of 'Deep Pockets, Sterling Character'

To the editor:

At a meeting of Flemington Borough Council earlier this year, Mayor Phil Greiner described Jack Cust as a man of “deep pockets and sterling character.” He seemed to be attempting to justify his basis for selecting a new redeveloper, after the first two selected by a committee he was part of, or led, failed at the project. Initially the project was to find someone to ...

This year alone, it will cost $277 billion to take care of those stricken. The Alzheimer’s Association predicts that, by 2050, more than 14 million Americans will be ...

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 ...
