From the YMCA:
Rev up your running or walking shoes and join us on Saturday, September 25th at Roosevelt Park in Edison for our annual Janice Garbolino Memorial 5K Walk/Run. Last year over 400 runners and walkers come out to Roosevelt Park to celebrate the spirit of Janice Garbolino, former long-time Health & Wellness Director at the Metuchen Branch YMCA, and raise money for our YMCAs Fund for Tomorrow at the same time! All proceeds of the Janice Garbolino 5K will support LIVESTRONG ™ at the YMCA program, a physical activity and wellness program for cancer survivors.
Invite some friends and form a team in memory of someone, in honor of someone, for encouragement of someone, or just because. To sign up for the 5K, please visit your local branch or register online at https://www.metuchen-edisonymca.org
Sponsorships are available! A Sponsor form is located in the "photos" section of this group. You can print a copy and send it back to the YMCA Corporate Office. Or contact Helene Zahn to sponsor this worthwhile event!
The Fund for Tomorrow has become the cornerstone for our commitment to building strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

In a distinctively difficult economy, it's hard to make a living at all, let alone be a working artist. However, sometimes the trick is to team up and some talented artisans in Metuchen have done just that. Beginning in February of this year, Amy Brooks and Linda Vonderschmidft-LaStella have met monthly at Brewed Awakening, first in an effort to simply meet regularly with a fellow artist who works independently and then to see if there would be any way they could collaborate. They felt that the art forms in which they specialize are significantly different from those of painters or collage artists or graphic designers and need a different approach to marketing and client development. Since both were full-time artists, they decided to create the collaborative Metuchen Artisans Alliance together.
Paradise Custom Glass and Earthsongs Works in Clay both provide custom design services and fabrication of their respective products to residential and corporate clients. Much of their work can be permanently installed and included in original architectural design. The official "launch" of the Alliance will be at the NJ Home Show, September 11-12-13 at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ. There, they will have an opportunity to expand their client base beyond their local contacts, as well as meet with architects and others in the profession.
