Vote for 4, 3, 2, 1 summer reading The Allendale Woman’s Club and Northern Highlands More than 350 Bergen County residents recently attended Children’s Aid and Family Services’ sixth annual gala. This year’s theme was “There’s No Place Like Home,” from the classic film “The Wizard of Oz,” and many of the guests wore their red party shoes. The Hackensack Golf Club was transformed into Oz for the event, complete with Yellow Brick Road, poppy fields, Emerald City, Dorothy, the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Cowardly Lion mingling with the crowd. Children’s Aid and Family Services is one of the largest regional, nonprofit human services organizations serving northern New Jersey. For more information on Children’s Aid and Family Services, call (201) 261-2800 or visit us at www.casnj. org. Pictured with Dorothy and friends are Donald and Joyce Snyder of Allendale. Dr. Snyder was the former superintendent of the Upper Saddle River schools. There’s no place like home Regional High School are gearing up for a second community summer reading program: “4 Towns, 3 Months, 2 Books, 1 Hot Topic.” The goal of this project is to encourage high school readers, to bridge generational gaps, and to bring Northern Highlands’ four sending communities closer.

Donations sought for Project Graduation One of the many traditions at Northern Highlands Regional High School is the annual Project Graduation celebration. The nationwide activity for new high school graduates was introduced over 15 years ago by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a means of keeping graduating seniors safe from the perils of drinking and driving on the high-risk night of graduation. Project Graduation has evolved into a huge alcoholand-drug- free graduation party planned and executed by a committee of Highlands’ parent volunteers. Planning is currently underway for the Class of 2009. The event will be funded primarily through student assessments and other fundraisers, but due to the high costs of throwing a party for over 250 students in the middle of the night, the committee is looking for the support of local families and businesses. The community has been incredibly generous in the past, which is why this event is always a memorable success. Financial contributions can be mailed to: “Project Graduation 2009,” c/o Bridget Egan, 93 Sheri Drive, Allendale, NJ 07401. Health consultation program reduces schedule Allendale’s free health consultation program held on the fourth Thursday of the month will no longer be held monthly, but on a quarterly basis instead. The clinic will be held on the upcoming dates: April 23, Aug. 27 and Dec. 17 at the Municipal Building located at 500 West Crescent Avenue. Engaged? Just Married? Celebrating an Anniversary?
