MILLTOWN, NJ - The kids and teachers are counting down; moms and dads not so much. School will be out for summer in the Milltown and Spotswood school districts on June 17. Boredom usually sets in for kids after 24 hours or less and then the sibling arguments and whining about having nothing to do typically begin.

If summertime plans are still up in the air, the Milltown Borough Pool will be selling badges after June 18 at the pool only.

Badges will be available daily at the pool from 9 a.m. until noon. The pool will be celebrating the onset of summer with a free opening weekend on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19.
