Sarita Cook-Kelty, Marge Loew, Dorothy Fox, Ken Brown, Scott Burns, Allison Faasse, and Kimberly O’Brien will all have new placements.

PSE&G recently met with the Allendale Borough Council regarding the utility company’s plans to replace the main gas line on West Allendale Avenue. Work is scheduled for the week of Aug. 3 through 7. The hours of construction will run from 4 p.m. to midnight. These hours were chosen to allow for the project to progress with a reduced amount of disturbance to the West Allendale Avenue gas line to be replaced local businesses and to allow better traffic control. During construction hours, there will be partial closure of West Allendale Avenue, primarily on the south side of the street, which is where the gas main is located. Motorists will be able to pass through the area while the construction is underway, but parking will be limited. ���������������� Perennials ���������������������� ������ ���������������� �������������� Career development group offered (Rudbekia Goldstrum) ����������� ��������������� Black Eyed Susan (2 gal. - Reg. $995) ���������������������������������������� ������������������������������������� SALE $695 The Allendale Clergy Association has formed a career development group called Opening Doors.
