The resource tables will be set up during the evening for your convenience.

Bringing all of these organizations to the same event will provide you with the resources and information you will need to bring into your homes.

Ceremony to commemorate National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

morriscountyprosecutorActing Prosecutor Knapp announces ceremony to commemorate National Crime Victims’ Rights WeekActing Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp announces that the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office will recognize 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (April 21-27) with a Recognition and Remembrance Ceremony. The ceremony, honoring victims and advocates of victims’ rights, will take place on Monday, April 22 at 12:00 noon in front of the County Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown.

National Crime Victims’ Rights Week has been a time of national remembrance since 1981, an opportunity for communities, victims and their loved ones, and professionals serving victims to join together and reflect on the progress achieved in victims’ rights. The theme for 2013 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “New Challenges * New Solutions”.

Thirty years ago, crime victims did not have rights, access to crime victim compensation, or services to help rebuild their lives. They were often excluded from courtrooms, treated as an afterthought by the criminal justice system, and denied an opportunity to speak at sentencing. Today, all states have enacted crime victims’ rights laws and established crime victims’ compensation funds.

Acting Prosecutor Knapp is proud of the outstanding team of capable and dedicated professionals in the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office who assist victims of crime and advocate on their behalf.

All are invited to join the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office at the ceremony.  For more information or to RSVP, contact the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Community Affairs Unit at (973) 285-6268 or e-mail rsvp@co.morris.nj.us

Any inquiries regarding this press release can be directed to First Assistant Morris County Prosecutor/SDAG Thomas Zelante at (973) 285-6252 or tzelante@co.morris.nj.us.

Annual Historic Re-Enactment at the Livingston Benedict House

benedicthouseEach year in the spring a living history event is presented at the 250 year old Livingston Benedict House on Old Parsippany Road. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Thirty-seven years after the American Revolution, the United States was divided about declaring war. The War of 1812, two hundred years ago now, was supposed to be “over in two weeks”, and it was said our armies would be greeted as “liberators” of Canada. After two and a half years of fighting, the burning of Washington DC, and the Battle of New Orleans, the war ended inconclusively, but with US control of lands west of the Mississippi and the end of Native American dreams of their own independent country.

Interesting stories linking Parsippany and Troy to this war will be presented on Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5.

The house will be open for tours, and costumed volunteers will present stories of people who lived in Parsippany two hundred years ago.  The kitchen features hearth cooking. The barn will be open as well, and there will be demonstrations of old-time crafts and children’s activities.

The Livingston Benedict House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is protected from development by an easement held by the New Jersey Historic Trust.Governor William Livingston and his family lived in the house during the Revolutionary War, and it has been owned by members of the Benedict family since 1857.

This event is made possible by almost thirty volunteers: Girl Scouts, members of the Historic and Preservation Society, and friends. For more information, call (973) 887-2455. Free, donations accepted.

This year’s scheduled attendees included ADP, Atlantic Health Care, Care One, Coca Cola Refreshments, Liberty Mutual, Prudential, Provident Bank, Zoomus, Rite Aid, and Tiffany & Company.  A complete list of attending companies will be available at employmentoutreach.org on Sunday, April 20.

“Our Job Fair has a reputation for the last four years in providing outstanding service to our residents, businesses, and volunteers in the Parsippany Area at No Charge.  This is another example on how we strive to give back to our community!” stated Chamber President and Job Fair Chair Robert J. Peluso.  The job fair is a great opportunity for job seekers to connect with area employers while gaining new skills through the event’s free workforce development seminar. However, there is much more to the event. The job fair is part of the Chamber’s Employment Outreach Program which is the Chamber’s unique approach to drive community and economic growth in the Greater Parsippany Area through providing employers with a high quality workforce. However, the success of the Job Fair and Employment Outreach Program, which annually assists over 2500 job seekers and 75 area employers, demonstrates the success of Chamber President and Job Fair Chair Robert J. Peluso’s strategic partnership initiative.

In 2009, led by Peluso, the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce began focusing on creating strategic partnerships with other community based organizations. To date the Chamber has over eight organizations involved, which also assists in the Annual Job Fair. “A high quality workforce creates an advantage in attracting and retaining top companies to the Parsippany Area. We provide comprehensive services, including: a job posting board, quarterly newsletters (Workforce Morris), an active website (employmentoutreach.org), internship opportunities, scholarship programs, training events, career counseling, and workforce development opportunities for students. All of these services are provided free of charge by the self-funded and volunteer based organization, however we could not make this program a success without our dedicated partner organizations,” stated Chamber President Robert J. Peluso. For more information on the Employment Outreach Program and the job fair, please visit employmentoutreach.org.

Veterans Outreach Fair Draws Crowd at Parsippany PAL

Council on Veterans Affairs is committed to assisting the brave servicemen and women who have protected our nation and defended the ideals we hold so dear. It has come to their attention that many veterans are unaware of the benefits they are due.

The fair was held at the Parsippany PAL Youth Center and included many vendors such as VITAS Hospice Care; G.I.

This year the two Key Clubs that the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany sponsors, Parsippany High School and Parsippany Hills High School walked away with a total of 23 awards, including:

In addition to the awards Division 19, which is the division that both Key Clubs are members, won back the coveted Spirit Stick which they had lost to Division 15 in the Fall Rally. The Spirit Stick was awarded at the end of the Sunday session to the division that demonstrates the most Key Club spirit when they are called upon by the Governor.  It was an extreme decibel experience.

The 2012-2013 Key Club Board set a fund raising goal for the “Eliminate Project” to reaise $100,602.23 during their service year.

-100 – For the 100 million mothers that still need vaccinations

-60 – For the 60,000 mothers and infants that die each year from MNT.

-2 – For the two powerful organizations, the Kiwanis Family and UNICEF working together.

-23 – For the 23 amazing divisions in the New Jersey District joining together to eliminate MNT.

Unfortunately, due to the devastating effects of Super Sandy they were not able to achieve their goal this year. They were however able to raise approximately $65,000 during this service year. Using the UNICEF/KIWANIS formula 3 (inoculations) x $.60 (cost of medication) = $1.80 = 1 life, the New Jersey District of Key Club saved 35,975 lives during their 2012-2013 service year. The 2013-2014 New Jersey Board has already decided to continue to support the ELIMINATE project for the 2013-2014 service year.

The district also elected their 2012-2014 Executive Board at the convention.  The new executive board members are:

Governor – Ryan Clarkin – Vernon TownshipSecretary – Kelly Tran, Egg Harbor Township
Treasurer – Penny Xu, Parsippany Hills High School
Edior – Pak Chau, Egg Harbor Township

Fire at Shaya Ahavat Torah

Sgt. Bernard Hattersley, Officer Brian Conover and Officer Patrick McCarthy responded to the Congregation Shaya Ahavat Torah located on Hawkins Avenue to investigate a report of a structure fire after an individual entered the Temple at approximately 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 11  and noticed the smell of smoke.

He exited the temple and spoke to a neighbor who saw flames towards the rear of the building. The neighbor ran to his house and returned with a fire extinguisher as 9-1-1 was being called to report the blaze. The neighbor was able to contain the flames with the extinguisher and a garden hose until Parsippany Fire Districts 5 and 4 arrived at the location and extinguished the blaze.

They then remained at the location to overhaul that area of the building to ensure it would not reignite. Officer David Cavaliere as well as Det. David Guth whose function as Arson Investigators for the Parsippany Police Department arrived as Arson Investigators from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office were responding.

The fire was determined to have been accidental in nature.. The motor of a sump pump that had been operating after the heavy rains on Wednesday evening seized up. The cord that supplied electrical power to the pump overheated and caused the fire to occur. Our department took the initiative to email the other Synagogues in the township to notify them of the incident as our patrol units were directed to increase their presence near the other two temples in Parsippany until the investigation was completed.

There were no injuries reported.
