On Monday, June 1, Governor Phil Murphy announced stage two of reopening New Jersey. On Monday, June 15, outdoor restaurant dining and non-essential in-person retail will be permitted to reopen. The following Monday, on June 22, salons and barber shops can open. Governor Murphy said the opening of gyms and health clubs will “follow.” While not announced on Monday, stage two of reopening also includes in-person clinical labs and some in-person government services, like the Motor Vehicle Commission.

“We are glad that the Phase 2 of business openings by the Governor will be taking place the middle of June,” said Beth Lippman, executive director of the township’s Business Improvement District. “Our businesses have their work cut out for them to find ways to get their customers back by making them feel comfortable and safe. The BID is working with the Town to help our businesses with information, resources and money from the Grant Program.”

Article Image Alt Text

With the coronavirus pandemic putting an end to its collection of coats, clothing, toiletries, and personal items for the homeless, Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has been adapting well to its new role of food distribution.
“It seems like yesterday when we discussed becoming a 501(c)(3), thereby unleashing the legal ability to accept monetary contributions,” noted founder and director Jeff Friedman. “That was two years ago. Through the efforts of Livingston non-profit heroes Walter Levine, Esq. and Alan Karpas, Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. was created after seven years as a well-oiled volunteer operation, which it continues to be today as a non-profit corporation in our ninth season of giving.”

Livingston Veterans Hold Small Ceremony in Honor of Memorial Day

In a ceremony that was tinged with an extra layer of poignancy due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Livingston VFW, VFW Auxiliary, and American Legion Post 285 held a Memorial Day ceremony at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 25.
