    East Brunswick High School Drama club is putting on a great play, Still Life. Still Life with Iris is a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno—a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. Also, in Nocturno, memories do not reside in people's minds but instead are kept in their coats (called 'Past Coats').

    It's a great night out to support the EBHS Drama Club, so get out and get your tickets. There are only two days left. The play will be held on November 18th and 19th. at 3:00 p.m.

    Tickets are $14 for adults and $7 for kids and students and can be purchased at ebhs.booktix.com.

Get your camera ready and enjoy the sights. You will not be disappointed.

    Are you looking to sell? However, you look around and have no idea how to make your home stand out. Here are three great tips you might want to try:

    1. Declutter the home. Get a storage unit and throw it all in there. Put things that you won't need for awhile. Don't throw it all in your closet, buyers do look there.
    2. Paint the front door so it looks fresh and clean. Also, paint the inside with a nice neutral color.
    If buyers are looking at older homes, usually they have not been painted. They will remember your home.
    3. Make some small changes by improving the lighting, changing the hardware in the kitchen and all the light switch and plug covers.

    By making these small changes it will help your home stand out more then the others. Good luck!

    I hate to say it but summer is going fast. However, still looking for something to entertain the kids with. How about bowling? It's something different and you can get out of the heat or rain. Check out the specials that your bowling ally's are running. Bowlero in North Brunswick has a great deal going on.

    Sign your child up for $29.99 and they can bowl three games every day! Yes, that's right, I said every day! Go check it out and have some fun. This deal is for the ages 15 and under but they have specials for 15 and up too! Go two times and it pays for itself. Have Fun!!!

    Where will you be this weekend? Middlesex County offers many opportunities to enjoy family, friends, and of course, fireworks! On Sunday, July 3rd, you can head over to Alvin P. Williams Park in Sewaren or even Donaldson Park located in Highland Park.

Wherever you decide to go; be safe, be mindful of extra traffic, and make it a memorable experience! After all, we'll have to wait a whole year to do it again. Happy Birthday America!

    Local swim clubs tend to offer a one size fits all group experience that may work for some but not all. We have tried them and perhaps you have too. A noisy, gymnastic-sized pool, a hundred parents in the stands and about 40 students spread out in the lanes according to their skills. They meet once a week for 30 minutes and hope to remember what they have learned the following week. The child gets a collective 5 minutes of attention per class to actually practice and then they are tested only to learn they need that same class 2 to 3 more times. Sound familiar?

    This summer, after that experience, we decided to sign up for a session of swim lessons offered at the Milltown Borough Pool. My three children were greeted by an instructor and a helper. I thought surely we are early or perhaps running late but no other children ever came. While each child received individual instruction with the instructor, the helper managed a ring toss game for the waiting children. This kept them engaged and entertained while they waited for their turn. They offered 10 classes split up in a 2 week session. They were in the pool every morning practicing and gaining confidence in the water. After 4 lessons, my eldest was promoted to Advanced Beginners where she began mastering back stroke, diving and freestyle swimming. She went from a no swimmer to advanced swimmer in 10 lessons!

    The instructors are so kind, patient and lots of fun. My kids loved them and were sad when classes concluded. They even gave them donuts to congratulate them for finishing the course which is a big deal for kids! Next summer if you have a young swimmer and some free time, bring them to the Milltown Borough Pool for lessons!
