Chip or Treat with the Cats at Tabby’s Place

If black cats are your favorite part of Halloween, Tabby’s Place has just the treat for you.

On Saturday, October 26th, from 12-4pm, Tabby’s Place will host Chip or Treat, a free microchipping clinic and scrumptious celebration of the sanctuary’s 16th anniversary.

Since October 2003, Tabby’s Place has been a cage-free, no-kill haven for cats from hopeless situations. The one-of-a-kind sanctuary embraces kitties regardless of age, most medical issues, or temperament, making it a harbor of hope for the most desperate. 

Cats and dogs alike will be welcome at the free microchipping clinic. Microchipping can mean the difference between heartbreak and happy reunion if a pet should run away. Tabby’s Place is offering this service at no cost, as a thank you for the community’s generous support over the past 16 years. Pre-registration is required by 10/23 at http://microchip.tabbysplace.org/.

But chips are just one of many treats on offer at this festive family celebration. Guests, who are encouraged to come dressed in costume (pets too), will also enjoy self-guided tours of Tabby’s Place, complete with trick-or-treating with the cats for kids; delicious fall refreshments; and a costume contest, with prizes for best adult, child and pet costume.

Best of all, pet lovers will celebrate 16 years of saving the neediest members of our community…and help support the next 16 and beyond. Guests at Chip or Treat are encouraged to treat the Tabby’s Place cats with donations to the sanctuary, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

As always, over 100 lovable cats will be available for adoption at Tabby’s Place during Chip or Treat.

For additional information, please contact Tabby’s Place Director of Sanctuary Operations Danielle Rice at dr@tabbysplace.org or 908-237-5300 ext 450.

D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Annual Masquerade Ball featuring Mutts Artist Patrick McDonnell

D&R Greenway Land Trust’s annual Masquerade Ball takes place on October 26, 6:00 – 10:00 pm at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton.  A special highlight will be internationally renowned comic strip artist Patrick McDonnell’s first local book signing event following this week’s release of the Art of Nothing: 25 Years of Mutts and the Art of Patrick McDonnell.

Taking place on the weekend before Halloween, attendees will be encouraged to dress as a “creature of the earth,” in celebration of the countless animal species that make their homes on more than 20,800 acres of New Jersey land preserved by the D&R Greenway since its founding 30 years ago.

“We are thrilled Patrick McDonnell, a wildlife conservationist and long-time Princeton resident, has agreed to make our 30th anniversary event the first opportunity for local residents to get a signed copy of his wonderful new book that celebrates the 25th anniversary of Mutts,” said D&R Greenway CEO Linda Mead. “Lucky attendees to our Masquerade Ball will enjoy the opportunity to hear Patrick speak about his conservation commitment and see him draw his speciality MUTTS characters first hand.”

Comic strip author Patrick McDonnell is the creator of the animal friendly comic strip, MUTTS, which appears in over 700 newspapers in 22 countries.  MUTTS has received numerous awards internationally, both for comic strip excellence and for its themes of animal protection.  His MUTTS characters appear on New Jersey Animal Friendly license plates and in animated Public Service Announcements for The Shelter Pet Project. 

Featured at the “paw-ty” will be several dogs and puppies that are available for adoption, provided by SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, the animal shelter in Skillman.

“Preserving natural places and farmlands is important for many reasons, but none more so than protecting habitats for innumerable species of plant and animal life,” added CEO Mead.  The event will highlight three 2019 preservation successes, with premiere video shorts:

·       A 36-acre parcel on Steele Gap Road in Bridgewater visited by George Washington & Contintental troops on their way to encampment at Morristown, and later en route to victory at Yorktown, VA.

·       A 10-acre parcel along Route 206 in Montgomery, preserved by Don and Pat Matthews.

·       A small parcel on Hollow Road in Skillman that is an addition to the Stoutsburg Sourland African American American Museum.

 

The ticket price of $150 per person will include a complimentary, signed copy of the new Mutts book, which sells for $40 (hardcopy) and was released nationally October 15. McDonnell uses MUTTS as a platform to advocate for all animals. He strives to see the world through the eyes of animals and to use his voice to speak for them.  He was a member of the Board of Directors of The Humane Society of the United States for 18 years.  His comic strip is based on the world of Mooch, the curious cat, Earl, the ever-trusting dog, and the other characters who inhabit his beloved comic strip.

Pottersville’s Acoustic Café Presents Joe Janci

Jersey native Joe Janci is one of a select breed of singer/songwriters to emerge from the fertile music scene of the great Northeast.  Inspired by The Beatles, WABC Radio in NYC, and his NJ neighbors, Joe was off and running with his dream to make music, be in a band, and impress girls.  Indeed, there was lots of musical inspiration to be found in those wonderful Sixties. Songwriting bloomed during the 70’s and 80’s and along with Joe’s younger brother Jack the two started to focus on their talents via several notable bands such as Pure Spirits. Eventually the Janci brothers became an acoustic duo. Musical contacts in the NYC Region, as well as, Los Angeles and Nashville brought great experience and knowledge to their craft.

There is no cover charge but donations are appreciated. CD's will be on hand for purchase. Soft drinks, coffee and dessert will be available - all compliments of the house.

“Hands Across the Sea” Concert in Honor of 250th Anniversary

On Sunday, November 3rd at 4:00 p.m., the Christ Church Newton Senior Choir will present a concert in recognition of the 250th Anniversary of the founding of the Christ Church Parish in Newton.  The concert will be modeled after a British concert held each year at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the Henry Wood Promenade Concerts: “The Last Night of the Proms.”  The concert will feature soloists John Beasley, baritone, and Shannah Yerofeyev, soprano, and will be accompanied by organ and orchestra.  Tickets are $20 and are available for purchase on the church website, www.christchurchnewton.org or from choir members.

Christ Church Newton was founded as a parish by the Church of England in 1769.  The parish survived the revolution and became part of the Episcopal Church in the United States, first as part of the Diocese of New Jersey and later as a member of the Diocese of Newark.  The “Hands Across the Sea” concert is just one of a series of events taking place in November 2019 in recognition of the anniversary.  The celebration kicks off with a reenactment of the historic arrival of the Reverend Dr. Thomas Chandler at the Sussex County Court House on Sunday, November 3rd, at 9:00 a.m.  Other events include an Evensong celebration on Saturday, November 23rd, at 7:30 p.m., at which The Right Reverend Dr. Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham (England) will preside, and a celebratory Gala at the Lake Mohawk Country Club on Sunday, November 24th at 3:00 p.m.

Jewish Family Service of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties: Job Seekers Success Group

Jewish Family Service of Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties is offering a Job Seekers Success Group for active job seekers who are unemployed, underemployed or seeking a career change.  The next group will be held on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at JFS, 150-A West High Street, Somerville, NJ.

The topic for this session is “Defeating Unconscious Bias: 5 Strategies” presented by Jan Goodman, Training and Development Specialist, Greater Raritan One-Stop Career Training Services.

Let’s face it, everybody has some unconscious bias. This is not in the context of talking about a preference for Mexican food or an inclination toward the color blue. The focus here is on those inflexible beliefs about whole categories of people that keep us from seeing others accurately, from making fair and appropriate decisions, and from building the kind of harmonious relationships that make our lives more successful.  Clearly, biases are bad news. On the other hand, the good news is that biases do not make us bad people. Human nature is to lump people into categories. Because of this predisposition, we are vulnerable to unconsciously believing the messages that bombard us from family, media, experience, and society as a whole. But we are not stuck with our unconscious biases; we can defeat them.

 The “Defeating Unconscious Bias” workshop is designed to address the hidden biases that can affect hiring, team building and challenges the ability to create inclusivity in both professional and personal settings. A 14-minute video accompanies this training offering 5 simple, actionable, and memorable strategies to enhance workplace productivity and innovation by addressing bias. The authenticity and diversity of the scenarios utilized keeps participants’ attention, and the solutions suggested support change without blame. am e, NJ 08878

This group is offered free of charge and is open to the entire community.  Funding for this program is provided by grants from The Arnold A. Schwartz Foundation, Affinity Federal Credit Union and Magyar Bank. To register or for information about Career Counseling Services, please contact Elise Prezant at 908-725-7799 X108 or eprezant@JewishFamilySvc.org.

The Princeton Folk Music Society presents Beppe Gambetta

The Princeton Folk Music Society presents Beppe Gambetta

The Princeton Folk Music Society presents Beppe Gambetta

Friday, October 11, 2019, 8:00 pm | Christ Congregation Church | 50 Walnut Lane, Princeton, NJ

The Princeton Folk Music Society presents a fusion of American and Italian folk music traditions with Beppe Gambetta. Beppe is a guitar master (think Earl Scruggs meets Richard Thompson) who taught himself to flat-pick by listening to bluegrass LPs. He combines the folk music of Italy and points east with the bluegrass style of Kentucky. While he may be best known for his picking prowess, Beppe also is a talented vocalist. He sometimes likes to step away from the microphone so that the audience can enjoy the pure beauty of a performance without electronic enhancements. His performances have been said to ooze charm and humor as he tells jokes and stories to provide context for his music.

While he has been thought of as an ethnomusicologist because of his extensive studies of the music of different cultures, Beppe prefers to think of himself as an “ambassador,” reaching out to bring diverse peoples together. He has traveled to Mexico just to play with a Mariachi band and has sought out Slovakian Gypsies to learn their traditional music. He has been to four continents, all 50 states, and has studied Italian church bell music in his native country. In his younger days, Beppe did a “crazy thing,” travelling across the United States to knock on the doors of many of his “guitar heroes.” Later, he was able to spend time and play with Pete Seeger at Pete’s home. He has performed with many other legendary folk musicians, including David Grisman, Doc Watson, and Norman Blake.

“Get him on a stage and his fingers speak a language all their own. After all, he’s not known as the ‘Italian King of the flatpick guitar’ for nothing.” — Steve Wildsmith, The Daily Times

“His incredible versatility combined with his charm and engaging stage presence make Beppe’s concerts evenings of high quality music and relaxed entertainment. Over-riding all else, however, is the brilliance of his talent.” — Cornish Guardian

“Few players on the planet could so successfully fuse an unwavering allegiance to tradition with impatient, wide-eyed vision, tongue-in-cheek humor with solemn devotion, and folksy song styles with progressive improvisation as Gambetta” — John D’Agostino, Wood & Steel

To hear Beppe Gambetta, visit: YouTube

8:00 pm. Friday, October 11, 2019, Christ Congregation Church, 50 Walnut Lane, Princeton, NJ. Tickets at the door: $25 ($20 members, $10 students 12 - 22, $5 children 11 and under). Ample free parking. For more information:  www.princetonfolk.org.

Gordon Thomas Ward to Open Old Stone CoffeeHouse 2019-20 Season

GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Gordon Thomas Ward brings his unique song stylings to the Old Stone Church on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., opening the new season at the Old Stone CoffeeHouse in Baptistown, New Jersey.

            Early Bird seating is available for purchase for $15 through September 28. After September 28, tickets are $20. Visit www.hunterdonuu.org today to reserve a spot. Tickets may also be purchased prior to the concert at 7 p.m. when doors open. 

            No Depression Magazine calls Gordon, "one of the best singer-songwriters working in the Americana/indie scene today.” He utilizes a variety of instruments in his shows, which result in a varied spectrum of tonal colors. His songs are influenced by the singer-songwriters of the late 1960s through the 1970s, yet Gordon's songs occupy a space all their own and fit into the contemporary folk rock, adult alternative, and Americana genres. He has worked with notable musicians such as Eric Troyer and Mik Kaminski of the Electric Light Orchestra and shared the stage with Natalie Merchant and Christine Lavin. 

             Old Stone CoffeeHouse concerts are held in a 200-year-old fieldstone church, home to the First Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Hunterdon County (FUUFHC). It is located at the crossroads of Route 519 and Oak Summit Road, only a few miles from Frenchtown and the Delaware River.

Partial proceeds from Old Stone CoffeeHouse concerts benefit FUUFHC social justice partners: the Delaware Riverkeeper (www.delawareriverkeeper.org) which works to protect Delaware River Watershed waterways, NORWESCAP (www.norwescap.org), which feeds thousands each year and assists area low-income clients with employment building, nutrition, and child and family development, Family Promise (www.familypromise.org), which helps homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence; and the UU Faith Action New Jersey (www.uulmnj.org), which promotes social justice through legislative and public education activity.

            All are welcome to services at the Old Stone Church. For more information about FUUFHC, visit www.hunterdonuu.org.
