Washington Twp. Library Zoom Lunch n Learn – July

Lunch ‘n’ Learn: “Fighting Food Waste – Helping the Environment & Your Food Budget”Monday, July 27 at Noon Surprisingly, food waste contributes 10% of greenhouse gases. Food in our kitchens that is wasted often ends up in plastic garbage bags decomposing in landfills releasing methane gas. Methane is a much more potent contributor to global climate change than carbon dioxide. Importantly, food waste costs us money too. Join Cathy Segal to learn how to save money in your food budget with 5 simple strategies that reduce what we are throwing away in the trash. This program is sponsored by the Senior Resource Center and is free and open to all. The session will be held live over Zoom. Please register so we can send you a link to attend.

Not All Heroes Wear Capes

Ginny a wife, mom, grandmother, retired teacher from Long Valley Middle School and an active member of the Senior Resource Center in Chester wanted to do something to help first responders who were irritated by the elastic of face masks around their ears.  She saw a design for an extender which allows the elastic bands to attach, not to the ears,  but with a buttoned strip behind the head.  She began making them for family and friends, and when they were a hit, soon was making many more for workers at several hospitals in New Jersey and North Carolina.

Ginny said that this project has helped get her through this trying time, and it has surely helped others feel more comfortable and less stressed during their long hours of service.  She added that without the help of neighbors donating buttons and helping to sew them on the extenders she wouldn’t have been so successful in this joint effort.  We thank her for her acts of kindness.

Although Ginny does not have any more buttons to distribute completed extenders, she does have plenty crocheted strips.  If you or anyone you know would like the strips (buttons not included), please contact the Senior Resource Center in Chester at (908) 879-2202

In addition, please contact the Senior Resource Center if anyone would like to donate buttons, Ginny is in need of ¾ to 1 inch flat buttons.

SRC staying together in a time of social distancing.

Hi All, as we are all dealing with the effects of the coronavirus, social distancing has become our “norm,” but here at the SRC distancing just feels unnatural.  The SRC has always rallied around each other during difficult times and these times are no different.  Let’s come together! 
We want to bring our SRC community together on social media and say THANK YOU to all those considered frontline workers: nurses, doctors, hospital staff, first responders, pharmacy staff, police officers, fire fighters, EMT’s, delivery drivers, restaurant workers, truck drivers, grocery employees.
If you would like to be involved, here’s how:

  • Take a picture or video of you and/or your family holding up a colorful and creative sign or saying a few words saying thank you to our healthcare and front line workers. 
  • Submit your photo/video to marthatoledo@srcnj.org 
  • All photos/videos will be shared on our Facebook & Website.

Please help us say THANK YOU to all those who are helping us get through this!

Below is the very first photo submitted by Gay Carole and Arlene & Dave Klavens. Thank you all!
