Article Image Alt Text

The ninth giving season of Living-ston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is off to an extremely strong start “thanks to our altruistic Livingston residents,” announced Jeff Friedman, founder and director of the organization.
LPI volunteers provided needed clothing items to the Bessie Green Community at North Reformed Church, and toiletry gift bags to  clients at  John’s Soup Kitchen, both  located in Newark.
The Bessie Green “Clothes Barn” operation received a large, three-vehicle delivery from volunteers Alan Levin, Rick Levin and Stephen Greenberg.
“Still using personal vehicles to make it happen, they are loaded up to the gills with an array of family clothing, shoes, coats, men’s dress attire and more,” said Friedman. “Mostly high-quality garments, as always.”
Levin, a founding LPI volunteer, reported that  “We filled up my SUV, Alan’s station wagon and Stephen’s car. We picked up a bigger than expected load of donations at the Tribune, too.”

Peter Walker Armstrong, 80, of Temple, Maine, died suddenly on August 27, 2019. He was born in 1939, in Newark, New Jersey, to Richard and Elizabeth (Schuh) Armstrong, and grew up in Livingston.

He met and married Janice Jeffers in New York City, and Peter and Janice moved to Maine to homestead. Peter became a coordinator of Red Nugget Harvesters, a cooperative apple picking and pruning crew. Later, he continued to prune apple trees during the winter and restore gardens during the summer, for the rest of his life. An avid birder, he loved the natural world: skiing, canoeing, camping and hiking. Peter and Janice lived “off the grid” for twenty five years, building their own home and growing organic vegetables.

18 Years Gone, But Not Forgotten

Next week marks the 18th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the fall of the World Trade Center, the crash of Flight 93, and the attack on the Pentagon.

On that day, Livingston lost seven of its residents: Luke A. Dudek, Jeffrey Brian Gardner, Donald Thomas Jones II, Ming-Hao Liu, Joseph P. McDonald, John M. Pocher, and Kenneth Albert Zelman. They became part of a nationwide tragedy that forever changed the face of America.

Our nation was changed forever that day. Our country’s confidence in the security of its citizens and its institutions was shaken to its core, and nothing has been the same since. In the years that followed, towns across the nation held ceremonies to honor the more than 3,000 people who lost their lives in the attacks, including our own service in Livingston, organized for 18 years running by Bunnie Ratner, chairperson of the 9/11 garden at the Oval along with the annual Ceremony of Remembrance.
