1st Annual Blue Star Benefit @ The Brownstone
Apr 25 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
1st Annual Blue Star Benefit @ The Brownstone |  |  |

The Blue Star Mothers of Northern New Jersey-NJ6 will be hosting their 1st Annual Blue Star Benefit, on April 25, 2019 at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ. We are pleased to announce that the USO of the Metropolitan New York will be the charitable recipients of 2019.
For over 77 years, the USO has been providing assistance and support to our active duty military. The USO strengthens Americas military service members by keeping them connected to family, home, and country, throughout their service to the nation.
Much like the USO of Metropolitan New York, the Blue Star Mothers of Northern New Jersey-NJ6 is a non-profit military organization. Our members consist of mothers and family members who have children in the armed forces. This local chapter was started by four mothers who each have a son or daughter currently serving in the military. Blue Star Mothers display the blue star flag in their home; they gather together as a support group to share their experiences, while also fostering pride in our country, supporting our troops, and assisting our frequently forgotten veterans.

Jefferson Volunteer Cleanup Day @ Jefferson Township

In celebration of Earth Day, Jefferson’s annual volunteer cleanup event will be held on Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to noon. Teams will be assigned to pick up debris along township roads, on trails, and in parks.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome, individually and in groups. Young volunteers – such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and youth groups – will be assigned areas around parks, fields, or schools.

Other areas that need attention include Cozy Lake Road, Dover-Milton Road, Russia Road, Ridge Road near Ackerson Field, Chamberlain Road near Water’s Edge, Berkshire Valley Road near Longwood Lake, Lower Berkshire Valley Road near the intersection with Minnisink Road, Prospect Point Road near the intersection with Northwood Road, and Hellers Lane.

To register, call Patty Romano by April 24 at 973-208-3639. If April 27 is not workable for prospective volunteers, they can arrange to participate before or after that date.

On the cleanup day, meet at the Department of Public Works office (4 Sparta Mountain Road, Oak Ridge – just off Weldon Road) between 8:00 and 8:45 a.m. to enjoy a light breakfast. Then pick up supplies (gloves, bags, vest) and head out to the assigned area. DPW employees will pick up the collected trash and recycling left on the sides of roads beginning Monday, April 29.

The assistance of volunteers is appreciated to help keep Jefferson Township a clean, litter-free community.
