READINGTON, NJ - The Hunterdon YMCA will host the 15th Annual Golf Classic at Stanton Ridge Golf and Country Club here on June 19. 

While the Golf Classic has become an annual event, the work that it supports is far from ordinary. All proceeds from the event benefit the YMCA financial assistance program, a confidential program making YMCA programs and services available to all Hunterdon community members regardless of their ability to pay.

With the help of fundraisers such as the Golf Classic, in 2016 alone the YMCA provided more than $518,000 in financial assistance. This allowed over 1,650 individuals to benefit from Y programs and services such as swim lessons, day camp  and child care. While requests for financial assistance grow each year, the Y remains committed to meeting the needs of the community. The Y also offers programs to the community at no cost such as Livestrong at the Y for cancer survivors, Special Olympics, and the Second Grade Learn to Swim Program.

Registration for individual golfers is $250. The event begins at 10 a.m. with registration and a noonshotgun start. The scramble event will include 18 holes of golf, golfer giveaways, lunch, and a buffet dinner. 

Prizes will be awarded in several categories with special prizes for on-course challenges including longest drive and closest to the pin. Two hole-in-one opportunities are available.

The Hunterdon YMCA is a non-profit charitable organization.

It's All About Community

June 25, 2018

To the editor,

Very often when I am out in the evening and heading home I will stop at the Flemington Wawa to get a cup of coffee. The first few times I stopped I was surprised to see the teenagers and young adults hanging out. After the first few times I figured out why. There is no place else to go so they hang out at the Wawa, Dunkin Donuts, Panera Bread and Starbucks.

When I was growing ...

Reiner's Conservative Hypocrisy

To the editor,

Regarding the recent TAPinto article that quoted Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner about a possible marijuana dispensary being located in his town, I crack up every time he opens his mouth and plants his pseudo-conservative foot in it.

According to the article, this staunch conservative Republican who blathers about the importance of personal freedoms every chance he ...

Reiner Doesn't Speak for Township Committee

To the editor:

In light of the recent letter to the editor from Raritan Township Committeeman Lou Reiner regarding his personal opinion on arming school officials, we felt the need to share our views on his statement.

Mr. Reiner took this position as an individual citizen and not in his capacity as a member of the Township Committee. We wholeheartedly disagree with the notions of arming ...

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...

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 ...

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!
