Check out “National Night Out” [2015]!

August 4, 2015

I read about goings on in Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield (that last one mentioned pizza, so that was attractive!), but nothing about any events in West Orange.


Bike & Walk Montclair held a Four Ward Evening Bike Tour, in Montclair. The ride started in the 2nd Ward at the Edgemont Park Field House, and made stops at each event–of National Night Out–in all Four Wards of the town. I biked from home.

The basic schedule:
5:00 pm – Met at Edgemont Park Field House, in the 2nd Ward [Surprise: there was pizza! I had a slice (from Panzano’s) and a bottle of water];

– biked to Salvation Army, in the 3rd Ward [I had two slices of pizza (from Mancinni’s) and a bottle of water];

– biked to the Community Center (11 Pine Street), in the 4th Ward [I had an empanada (from Noches de Colombia) and a bottle of water];

– biked to St. James Church, in the 1st Ward – arrived at 7:00.


Laura Torchio (left) arrived first. Then me. Then a couple of other bikers. Then two policemen, to answer any questions that we had.


We ten. My friends Laura, Gray Russell, Gail Prusslin were among them!

Guess whom I met, again!

September 5, 2014

 I recently went to Temple Beth Shalom, in Livingston, NJ,
expressly to see
Absolutely Abby
present to the
TBS Career Networking group.

(Thanks to Howard Reba for all the work he has done for that
[and to the men of the congregation, for providing refreshments!].
He’s “landed” [a job] now, so hopefully others will step up…)

Thanks to Jerry Siskind, too, for taking this (suggestion by me,
and making this) photo (and then getting it to me).

Raymond Helfrich & Abby Kohut (Aboslutely Abby)

Here are my previous blog posts, about her:
