Celebrate Neighborliness

Netherwood Heights Neighbors, a community organization, has created a 2009 calendar featuring the train station on the cover and 12 neighborhood homes on its pages.

The $20 price tag will help support the group’s local programs and charitable causes around the city, according to a flyer that suggests the calendar as a great holiday gift. The calendar can be ordered for out-of-state shipping for an additional $3 per calendar.

“It’s a yearlong enjoyment of the treasures of our neighborhood,” the flyer states.

To order, call (908) 668-0388.

Plaintalker congratulates all neighborhood groups for their work in 2008 and their plans for 2009. Block associations, residential historic district groups and neighborhood organizations are great resources for camaraderie, safety, education and maintaining the ambiance that attracted a family or individual to a neighborhood in the first place.

Along that line, there will be a Sleepy Hollow Christmas Eve celebration from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Leland Avenue Park that will feature a candlelight sing-a-long and Santa sighting, with wassail, hot chocolate and cookies in the gazebo after Santa’s visit. Attendees are requested to bring a non-perishable food item. Family and friends are welcome. For more information, call (908) 561-9575.

Happy Holidays to all!
