THE DELRAN DEFENDERS, a team of Delran Emergency Responders will be meeting at the Delran Fire House (Station 2) on Chester Avenue, March 20th at Noon– to participate in a NEW version of the Polar Bear Plunge this year.
The Delran Defenders have participated in this event which raises money for Special Olympics New Jersey for the last 15 years, but this year’s plunge has gone virtual!
The Defenders will be assisting the Delran Fire Department in a training exercise by running through a shower of ice-cold water!
If anyone would like to contribute to the fundraiser, or JOIN the Delran Defenders Team, please visit https://www.classy.org/team/337501 #DelranProud
March is Women’s History Month! I would like to invite residents to join in celebrating the remarkable contributions of women from many different backgrounds and cultures throughout history and today!
Assemblywoman Carol Murphy will be hosting a series called “Monday Mothers” which brings together groups of mothers to discuss the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on motherhood and includes topics such as virtual schooling, navigating career changes, work/life balance, and mental health. The event begins March 8th at 7 p.m. and runs through March 29th at 7 p.m. Information on how to register can be found at facebook.com/AswCarolMurphy
Kill the Lanternflies: Even though it is freezing cold, we are quickly heading into warmer weather. You can help stop the lanternfly infestation by destroying the eggs before they have a chance to hatch. Egg clusters can be found on trees, houses, cars, or any other flat surface, and look like clumps of mud. Scrape them into a Ziploc bag and pour some alcohol or hand sanitizer in the bag.
Students who need to log in-person community service hours can actually get paperwork signed for participation for destroying the eggs in their neighborhoods and local parks and visiting the Burlington County Volunteer Opportunities page: http://www.co.burlington.nj.us/1443/Volunteer-Opportunities
