Contact your legislators in support of curbing plastics
Two bills pending in the New Jersey legislature deserve our support. They would address the serious problem of plastic pollution by banning the use of plastic straws, plastic shopping bags, and Styrofoam food containers.
I can remember the time before there were any plastic shopping bags, and shopping was no harder.
Montclair residents who care about the environment should be in touch with Senator Nia Gill (973-609-0388) urging her to support S 2776 and with Assemblyman Thomas Giblin (973-779-3125) and Assemblywoman Britnee Timberlake (973-395-1166) urging them to support A 4330.
Get ready for another wonderful MHS Project Graduation
The signs on the lawns in town, ribbons of blue and white on porches aplenty, our town prepares for the 152nd graduation at Montclair High School on the evening of June 26.
Shortly after the ceremony, Project Graduation will begin with a triumphant ride through town for the graduates.
Be sure to cheer on the bus parade through our town and give our graduates a send-off for their celebration.
Project Graduation is a proper way of saying thank you to the Class of 2019 for all that it has accomplished.
Good luck to our graduates as their future path awaits.
