Ready for the runway On Saturday, Sept. 26, Eva’s Village will hold “Journey of Hope,” a community 5K walk/run at Garret Mountain Reservation in Woodland Park (West Paterson). All are invited to round up friends, family, business associates, and neighbors to enjoy a morning of camaraderie while raising funds to help people in need in many local communities. Registration is $20 for adults and $10 for children. Teams and individuals are welcome. Participants are asked to enlist the aid of family, friends, and neighbors, who may either join in the walk or run, or may make a donation toward the participating team or individual. Each donation adds up to help the common good. “At Eva’s Village, $20 will go farther than you can imagine, and this fun walk will provide a way for all of us to invite family, friends, and coworkers to share in the reward of helping to ease hunger and homelessness,” said Eva’s Village Executive Director Sister Gloria Perez. Consider what Eva’s Village can accomplish with the following funds: A sum of $20 will provide a hot lunch Journey of Hope 5K to aid Eva’s Village for four hungry people, or a winter hat and gloves for two homeless people. Forty dollars will provide fruit and vegetables for 20 families living in the Hope Residence of Saint Frances at Eva’s Village, or a week’s worth of diapers for 10 infants living in the Hope Residence. For $60, Eva’s Village can provide a cup of coffee for more than 2,000 homeless men and women. A sum of $100 will provide three days of complete meals for 20 homeless women. “We have all been witness to the power of a random act of kindness, how something small can make a big impact,” Sister Perez added. “Every single day, Eva’s Village is fueled by the kindness and generosity of others. By supporting our anti-poverty programs, you can personally improve the lives of people in your own community by giving them the resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency.” To register or donate, visit online at or call (973) 897-1261. Historian to discuss Hopper family, Revolution The Hermitage History Roundtable will begin its fall season Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m. with a presentation by local historian John Becica. Using Ree Hopper’s recently published genealogy of the first six generations of the Hopper family, Becica has continued his study of Ho-Ho-Kus during the Revolutionary War. His presentation is entitled “The Hoppers of Hoppertown: The ‘First Family’ of Ho-Ho-Kus, and Their Role in the American Revolution.” Becica is author of “The Revolutionary War in Ho-Ho-Kus: Military Encounters at Hoppertown/Paramus, 1776-1781,” which was published in 1998. The historian will discuss the Hoppers, who were the founders of the present day Ho-Ho-Kus business district and the surrounding area. The Hoppers made it clear that they were committed to the Patriot cause. This made them targets for local Tories and the British. Thus, the ravages of war came to Hoppertown on four different occasions, culminating in the Siege of Hoppertown in April of 1780. The Hermitage History Roundtable is free and open to the public. The group meets in the John Rosencrantz Visitors’ Center, adjacent to the Hermitage at 335 North Franklin Turnpike, Ho-Ho-Kus. 555 Russell Ave., Wyckoff, NJ 07481 (just west of Rt. 208) • 201-891-4595 • Grace United Methodist Church The people of Grace invite you and your family to join with us in worship and fellowship as we begin the fall season SUNDAY WORSHIP: 9 AM & 11 AM SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES: 9 AM & 11 AM: Infants to Grade 5 10 AM Grades 6 – 12 and Adults As of Sunday, 9/13/09 “Let the little children come unto me...” �������������������� Your Dog’s Business Is OUR Business �������������������������������������������� �������������������������������������������� ����������������������������������� ������������������� �������������� ���������� ��������������������� ���������������������������� ������������������������������������ ���������������������������� ������� 3 Youth Choirs – Ages 4 through Grade 12 4 Fellowship Groups ranging from Age 4 through senior high CHOIRS & FELLOWSHIP GROUPS FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH Grace Weekday Nursery School has classes for children ages 3 to 5 ���������������������� ������������ ��������������������
