ROSELLE, NJ - Many residents from Roselle’s First Ward and other parts of town showed up to the Warinanco Sports Complex on Saturday afternoon to participate in the First Ward Action Committee Meeting.

This was a first for many of the residents in that area since there have not been any meetings in the last few years.

“The First Ward Action Committee Kickoff brings residents, elected officials, local businesses, churches, community organizations and resource agencies together to create a movement toward progress for our community. Most importantly we kicked off new community programs, gather volunteers and registered people to vote! Progress is inevitable for the First Ward,” said First Ward Councilwoman Denise Wilkerson who created the event.

Local community organizations such as Community Access Unlimited, PROCEED INC. and others, were on hand to let residents know of programs available to them. Tables were set up to spotlight the local Roselle business owners and to remind everyone to shop locally.
