A big thank you to the Viking Visionaries program for helping wash our ambulance! www.facebook.com/share/A7gM5f2YXVPp6c7o/?mibextid=WC7FNeOn May 21st, the Township emergency services took part in the Viking Visionaries event. Viking Visionaries was a concept developed by Readington Middle School teacher Will Daly. With the goal of having his students become well-rounded citizens, his 8th grade civics class students went out into the community and performed volunteer work including painting, picking up litter, and emergency vehicle washing. A dozen of his students are shown here washing police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances.A special thanks to Joe, the manager at Flemington Home Depot for donating the car washing materials! ...

We're grateful for the swift response of two local veterinarians who joined efforts to provide essential care to the distressed animal.Through coordinated efforts and utilizing specialized equipment, including slings and the Township DPW skid steer, we successfully freed the cow from the mud.
