  • | 6:00pm - 7:15pm | Local Events, museum
    - Take advantage of summer’s longer days and warmer weather! Evening tours of Gustav Stickley’s Log House will run on a limited basis this August, unlocking the museum after-hours for an out of the ordinary experience. In the early 20th century, evenings were for entertaining; from quiet leisure activities to formal parties and lively dances.
    Our popular guided tours are personalized and illuminating; our guides are well-informed and enthusiastic. And in the warmth of summer’s early evening, before the sun sets on the day, the bygone world of this iconic building comes to life in a whole new light! Afterwards, you might even ask your guide to recommend a charming area restaurant. What better way to end a summer day?

    We are so proud to be part of Clear the Shelters for 2018 and cannot wait to make so many more matches for our pups! For every happy ending, we know another pup is waiting for theirs.

    Our full standard adoption fees will remain in effect at our adoption event this Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Visit us from 2 PM to 7 PM at our headquarters, 465 Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.

    Your new dog is not coming home alone! They bring with them a full record of vaccinations, a healed spay or neuter, lifetime microchip registration, and the knowledge that by bringing them home, you are also allowing us to "pay it forward" and save another! You are allowing us to "clear the shelters' down south, where so many of our pups come from dire backgrounds.

    Adopter perks that day include: a free BarkBox, a Home for Good magnet or cellphone wallet for each adoptive family, a complimentary HFG collar and leash, and the chance to win a certificate for a free grooming from our professional groomer!

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

Fun things to do in Budd Lake

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
