The Relay for Life of Nutley is less than 30 days away! As of right now, the Nutley Irish Team has raised almost $1,200 for the American Cancer Society! This is Nutley’s 10th Relay for Life and the township is just $10,000 from raising over $1 million in the past 10 years! If you would like to join the team, it’s not too late! Sign up online at www.relayforlife.org/nutleynj under the Nutley Irish team.
Three Trustees are up for elections this year: Dave Hollywood, Karen O’Connor and Tom McEnery. If you are interested in nominating someone to be a Trustee, the April meeting is when nominations are opened. Elections (if necessary) will take place at the May meeting. If you would like to nominate sometime, please attend the April meeting on Thursday. Nominees must be members in good standing for at least 6 months. Nominators must also be in good standing, and the nominee needs to be seconded by another member in good standing.
• Fundraiser for Kim Garner
The Nutley Irish prides itself on three things, the Nutley St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Scholarships, and helping the community. It hits the organization hard when one of our members is in need. As most of you know, Kim Garner is fighting a battle with Guillain-Barre Syndrome for the past 6 months. In those 6 months, she has been in and out of the hospital and currently in a full time rehabilitation facility. Due to the growing amount of medical bills, Kim is in need of assistance. The Nutley Irish, along with other Township organizations will be hosting a fundraising event for Kim at the Parks and Recreation Building on June 4th. We ask that you keep this date open, as more details are on the way. As many of you know, Kim is always the first person in line to help a member of the community, and we hope that as a community, we can come together to help her. If you have a raffle prize that you would like to donate for this event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
• NIAA Family Picnic
Planning is in process for the Nutley Irish Family Picnic at Monmouth Racetrack. Pricing is still undetermined but should be around the same as last year. If you are interested in attending, please contact Joe Castles at 973-951-7769. Having somewhat of an idea of how many people to plan for, will be very helpful when determining the price of the picnic. • Food Pantry Please don't forget to bring in non-perishable non expired food for the St.Mary’sfood pantry. Food donations are always in high demand.
