Cross Country Summer Program 2017

Tutoring???

Tutoring??

Just maybe your child needs a MENTOR?

Most of the time your child understands their school work ,but needs an explanation and encouragement in completing the necessary steps in order to be successful.

Some students don’t understand the importance of using their planner for their daily assignments or future projects and tests.

Some students must be informed of what is in their control and what exactly is their responsibility in making good choices.

No child sets out to fail , they just don’t know how to be successful.

While working through the student’s academics a mentor will:

● be supportive in encouraging the student to overcome obstacles

● listen first and speak to the concerns of the student

● push….just enough to raise the bar

If a student wants school to be easier, they need to get better at it.

Interested please email Mr. Sal Randazzese @ erandazz@comcast.net

U in Motion

We have scheduled a fitness session with Fitness Instructor Sherree Hoskins for this Saturday at 8:00 am at Lenape.  We want to have at least 25 participants, so let me know if you plan to make it and bring a friend.  No doubt that if everyone brings one new participant, we will reach that mark.  And no doubt the experience is more enjoyable and productive when we have strength in numbers. 

 So, come on out and give us a try!!!

 

Flemington Residents Needed

We need to become better stewards of the open spaces in our community.

To that end, The Recreation Committee is forming a Tuccamirgan Sub Committee.

Tuccamirgan is a ten acre parcel of active open space, located in the Bourough.

The power of nature to restore and sustain the human spirit is well documented

We need interested citizens who are willing to act in a custodial capacity to oversee the well being of this treasured space.

Please consider this request and contact Sal Randazzese if interested. 908 782-9493 or erandazz@comcast.net.

Thank you!

Lowe’s gives Tuccamirgan Park a new look

Sal Randazzese, Park Liason for the Flemington-Raritan Parks and Recreation Committee met with Lowe’s in Raritan Township numerous times this summer to coordinate numerous renovations in Tuccamirgan Park located on Bonnell Street across from St. Magdalen’s. Lowe’s #2552 received recognition and a plaque acknowledging the work their employees did cleaning up Tuccamirgan Park at Tuesday night’s meeting.

Late last summer, employees from Lowe’s spent a week cleaning up, painting, restoring benches and adding many new ones around the Park. The basketball court was resurfaced, the Pavilion was painted and two new grills were installed for families interested in cooking out. Their work made the park a nicer place to visit and take children to play in. The park had been neglected for years before Lowe’s came in to make it a place Flemington residents are proud of.

On behalf of the Flemington-Raritan Parks and Recreation Committee we would like to say thank you to Sal Randazzese, Joe Lloyd and Phil Breese for their joint efforts in making such a big project such a success that many will be able to enjoy for years to come!
