Cycling for a Cause

This past Saturday, February 2, more than 1,500 people cycled all day long on 125 bikes at Equinox gym in Summit, raising more than $1.1 million for rare cancer research as part of Cycle for Survival. Students and survivors joined together in a celebration of life, honoring the Livingston resident who launched the event by collecting money for her cause.

Our own Martha Ackermann, who is a Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center patient, kicked off the day by riding “Jen’s Bike,” in honor of Jennifer Goodman Linn. Former Tribune editor Nancy Dinar was also a top fundraiser for the event. We are proud to support this wonderful event each year and encourage others to do so as well.

Happy Lunar New Year

It is officially the Year of the Pig, and it cannot be disputed that Livingston’s Asian-American community has grown exponentially over the years. With this growth, the celebration of the Lunar New Year is becoming ingrained in our community. From township events, to programs at the public library, to children sharing fun information about holiday traditions in school, we are expanding our calendar to include a unique cultural celebration.

The Livingston Chinese Association, Livingston Huaxia Chinese School, Livingston Chinese School, and Livingston High School Chinese Program are just some of the Chinese cultural groups that exist in town at the present time. These groups have grown, both in numbers and in the amount of cultural experiences they offer to the community at large.

Four Chaplains Awards

Livingston’s veterans’organizations honored community volunteers Don Schwartz and Nick Santinelli at their Four Chaplains Legion of Honor Award ceremony on Sunday, February 3, at the Livingston Community/Senior Center. The award, which recognizes acts of volunteerism, brotherhood, and sacrifice, is named for the four chaplains of the USAT Dorchester. The ship was torpedoed during World War II, and as it sank, its four chaplains gave up their life jackets to other crew members, sacrificing their own lives to save others. Shown above, representatives of Livingston’s veterans’ groups (the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2856, the American Legion Post 201, and the Jewish War Veterans Post 740) lock arms in solidarity as four candles are extinguished in honor of the four chaplains. At right, Four Chaplains Legion of Honor Award recipients Schwartz and Santinelli display their awards and lapel pins.
