Busy Saturday: Board of Ed budget...Obamacare Forum...DQ Half-Off Sale...

The only 'storm' I'm aware of Saturday is the Blizzards on sale
at the Dairy Queen -- here demonstrated by owner Donna Albanese.

A busy Saturday for Plainfielders has been lightened somewhat by the curious cancellation by the Board of Ed of a scheduled school budget forum on account of an 'impending storm'. If you haven't heard about the 'storm', neither has my weather 'bug' which only notes 'a little snow'. The postponed event is now slated for next Saturday. Maybe they were thinking of the Blizzards on sale at the Dairy Queen?

In any event, you may venture out for the Deltas forum on Obamacare, the Board of Ed's Community Health Fair (apparently NOT cancelled) and top it all off with an all-day Half Off Sale at the Plainfield Dairy Queen.

The Central Jersey Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta sorority will join with Cross of Life Lutheran Church in hosting a free forum on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) at the church on Saturday from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM. The forum will be led by Katherine Woodfield, the founder of Health Care Insurance Education. The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Cross of Life Lutheran Church is at 1240 East 7th Street at Marsh Place. For more information, see the previous post here.
The Board of Ed's Family Success Center evidently didn't get the memo about the 'impending storm' and is holding its annual Community Health Fair at the Center from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday. In addition to a variety of health screenings, information will be available on a number of family-related services as well as activities for the whole family. The Family Success Center is in the former BOE headquarters at 504 Madison Avenue, corner of West 5th Street. Parking is available on site.
Donna Albanese and crew will welcome customers all day long to the annual Customer Appreciation Day -- with everything in the store Hall Off! The DQ has been a community gathering place for years, and you will surely see some friends and neighbors there enjoying the store's famous Blizzards and Smoothies or, for warmth, its hot dogs and sandwiches. One thing about the expected weather -- You surely won't have to worry about your cakes melting on the way home. The Dairy Queen is at 1367 South Avenue, near Plainwood Square Park.
