Article Image Alt Text

Last year, Jeff Friedman, founder of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), learned that many Livingston residents have  old, unused and unwanted furs hanging in their closets, attics, garages and basements.
“Now, LPI offers a solution to family members who want to use the furs to make a difference for those living below the poverty line or out on the streets,” he said.
 Livingston’s hometown charity is requesting old and unused furs for its second annual Vintage Fur Sale. “Last year’s event was hugely successful, and LPI is building on that success in 2019, our ninth season of providing for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised,” said Friedman. “Proceeds from the fur sale are used to to buy badly needed items for the homeless and profoundly poor folks.”

A multi-age Riker Hill School “Ramily” of 15 took a 15-mile bike ride in support of the 30th and final NYC Century Bike Tour on Sunday, September 8. The tours were organized by Transportation Alternatives, a bike advocacy group.

The Riker Hill group embraced the Riker Hill School mascot – the ram – and the “Ramily theme” as espoused by school principal Justin Toomey.

“The play on the words’ ‘ram family’ led to the kids’ chanting “We are ramily!’ said parent Rachana Sheth. “So we customized the helmets with ram horns and the Riker Hill slogan, #weareramily.”

Eric Fink

Article Image Alt Text

On Saturday, July 13, 2019, Eric Fink, 45, passed away while doing what he loved, jogging with his dog Tucker in South Mountain Reservation.

Eric was one-of-a-kind. He had a zest for life with a charm and sincerity that made every person he met feel special. He put family and friends above all. Eric believed that every family milestone deserved to be celebrated and honored, no matter the occasion. He was a special son, brother, husband, and uncle, but most of all, Eric was a proud father. He believed that time spent with his sons, Jordan and Ryan, was the most precious, whether it was hiking, coaching, camping, or a family road trip.

Stocking Up for Storms

Despite a little worry that Livingston would feel some of the effects of Hurricane Dorian, the township, fortunately, did not end up in the path of the storm. Still, we know that many residents were scrambling to grab last-minute supplies, just in case. Since our office is next door to ShopRite, it’s hard to miss the commotion of potential inclimate weather – we can always tell that bad weather is on the way just by watching ShopRite’s parking lot fill up beyond capacity.

We know all too well the nerves that come with an impending major storm. The back-to-back years of Hurricane Irene and superstorm Sandy in 2011 and 2012 still have many fearing that the next weather event will be the worst yet. And it’s fine to feel that way because we all should be as prepared as possible for another “once in a lifetime” storm, since it’s clear that this kind of intense weather has become anything but rare as the climate continues to change.

Catch A Local Game

For our readers who recently returned home from vacation, welcome back! We hope everyone had a great summer. Now that most people have returned to town, aside from a few stragglers lucky enough to still be down the shore, it’s time to turn our attention to all that is happening in Livingston.

Fall is a busy time in our community. The cooling temperature means that children have returned to school and, in addition to classes, they are quite likely engaging in a long list of extracurricular activities, from art, to music programs, to dance classes, to fall sports.
