    Re-elect Mayor Greg Westfall

     

    Greg Westfall has the experience vital to be the Mayor of Allentown.  Being a Mayor is hard work and responsibility to the public.  Mayor Westfall is a leader who represents the interests of all Allentown residents.  As a public servant Mayor Westfall is fiscally responsible and prudent with taxpayers money.  Due to Mayor Westfall’s hard work our school tax has reduced.  Greg Westfall has been instrumental in saving and creating open space such as the Sgt. George Ashby park.  Also, Mayor Westfall is concerned about the open space which surrounds our town.  How the wrong type of commercial development could negatively impact our town.  He strives to protect the borders of our historic town.  Over the 33 years he has lived in our town, I have known Greg Westfall to be a person of integrity.  Greg Westfall is honest, caring, and he wants to preserve the values of Allentown residents.  Mayor Westfall has the attributes and dedication of a true public servant.  Mayor Westfall represents the concerns and needs of everyone, young and older residents, who live and work in Allentown.  Please vote to re-elect Greg Westfall Mayor.

    Letter to the Editor:

     

    I’m writing in support of Mayor Westfall’s reelection campaign.  I worked with Greg several years ago when we worked together to preserve the Breza Road property.  I found Greg to be honest and open, working hard to do the right thing to protect the environment and the historic character of Allentown.  By pushing the governing body and corralling support for the project Greg was able to prevent intense development on Allentown’s border.

     

    Since that time, I have watched Greg be elected mayor and lead many projects beneficial to Allentown residents including:

    -Supporting the Planning and Zoning Board efforts to update the Master Plan.

    -Working with the Environmental Commission to develop an Open Space Plan and Natural Resource Inventory.

    -Appointing appropriate professionals to Town committees.

    -Working to manage traffic in and around the historic Main Street.

    -Obtaining grants for parkland.

     

    Greg continues to work hard to improve the quality of life in Allentown and deserves another term as Mayor to complete these and additional projects.

     

    Respectfully,

    Kathy Haake

    The public is invited to attend a special “Treats & Trees” reception benefitting The Allentown Village Initiative (TAVI) on Sunday, December 15, 2019 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the McCormick Home, 153 Route 526, Allentown, NJ.  Guests will enjoy over 200 decorated Christmas trees in the interior as well as about 25,000 lights on the outside of the family home.   Tickets to the reception are $10.  All proceeds benefit TAVI’s community improvement projects.

    The Allentown Village Initiative is a volunteer-driven, non-profit (501c3), historic preservation, community-revitalization organization dedicated to helping our community truly achieve its potential.  Among our priorities, as we partner with other community organizations, individuals, and institutions are to beautify the town’s main streets and other common areas, help the downtown commercial district thrive, restore our historic charm, protect our natural resources, and make our area a better place to live, work, invest in, and enjoy.

    Currently, TAVI is working to replace weathered “Welcome to Allentown” signage located on roadways leading into the borough.  TAVI has also worked to restore the Revolutionary War era cemetery on Lakeview Drive, and sponsors an annual reading of the Declaration of Independence program in Pete Sensi Park.

    The McCormicks have been decorating their home for over 30 years, the last 15 in Upper Freehold/Allentown.  It is a “green” effort featuring hand-made, repurposed and recycled decorations combined in a massive, yet elegant display.  For more information and to purchase tickets, please call Christine D’Ovidio at (732) 221-3186, or email at ckdovidio@gmail.com.

    NEED A FRESH IDEA FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS THIS YEAR?

    Join us at Advent Village 2019 at APC

    Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

     

    What is Advent Village?  Advent Village is an opportunity for the greater Allentown community to participate in an alternative experience to commercial Christmas shopping that creates awareness of and supports the missions of Allentown Presbyterian Church.

     

    Who benefits?  Purchasing a gift at Advent Village benefits the lives of people who are in need, in the name of your loved one, fulfilling the call to care for the members of God’s family.  Your purchases directly benefit those whom the mission teams serve.  Our missions include the Allentown Food Panty, the Allentown Good Neighbor Fund, Crossroads Youth Ministry, HomeFront, and the APC international missions in Guatemala and Africa (VIP).

     

    A Victorian atmosphere:  Shoppers stroll through a Victorian village complete with Dickensian storefronts.   Patrons visit six mission stores with friendly and knowledgeable “shoppe owners” who offer explanations and creative displays reflecting their work in the mission field.  The kids enjoying visiting Ye Olde Book Shoppe and Bakery supported by the APC Sunday School and Little Tree Preschool. 

     

    Entertainment:  Enjoy a potpourri of entertainment including performances by the Allentown High School “Half and Half” select choir, APC ROCK and Stepping Stones Choirs, APC Men’s Choir, Enoch Smith, Jr, Rochelle Ellis, local talent, and strolling minstrels! These musical and dramatic talents provide lively entertainment while our patrons enjoy a wide selection of food at the fabulous “Olde APC Café!

     

    Ye Olde APC Café:  Providing many delicious and varied homemade lunch and dinner options, all food is donated and prepared by volunteer chefs allowing 100% of sales to benefit the work of the missions.

     

    It’s working! Advent Village has been a success on many levels.  We have increased awareness of the missions of APC.  We provide a day of fun and fellowship evidenced by our “lingering” shoppers.  New friendships are formed and old ones strengthened.  And, we have contributed to a change in the way we think about “giving” at Christmas.  In the first nine years of the event, we have raised over $200,000 to help people in need locally and around the world.  What a beautiful expression of giving.  Praise God!     Help us continue to help others…

     

     

    This Christmas give a gift that will change a life!
