FLEMINGTON, NJ – Reading-Fleming Intermediate School students participated in Unity Day this week.

On Monday and Wednesday, students learned about Amanda Styles Cirelli Foundation – ASCF – which is also known as “A Smile on a Child's Face.”

ASCF was founded in memory of an aunt of sixth-grader Raegan Catherwood who lost her battle to cancer. Because of the aunt’s love of children, the foundation focuses on pediatric cancer research and putting a smile on the face of children fighting cancer by providing them with “smile bags.”

RFIS students made and decorated cards for pediatric cancer patients, and assembled smile bags filled with items aimed to bring smiles to their faces when they receive them.

Students collected enough items to assemble 357 smile bags.

Next week, the students will parade out of the building with the bags. The donation will be made to both Hunterdon Medical Center and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

An Election Won, But at What Cost?

November 17, 2017

To the editor:

Prior to the Nov. 7 elections, I wrote to congratulate Delaware Township committee candidates on running a clean race. Unfortunately, the seemingly earnest guarantee made to me by one Republican candidate turned out to be an empty promise. Less than a week before the election, the Republican candidates used the same sleazy tactic they had employed in the 2014 election, when they ...
