Best neighborhood for Trick or Treating?

Hi everyone,

We have lived in Washington Township for years but this will be the first Halloween we spend here with our toddler.

Our street has never gotten a single trick-or-treater in the decade we've been here, so I am wondering where we can go so my toddler can get a nice Halloween experience?

Thinking of just doing the downtown trick-or-treating, or maybe a trunk-or-treat, but I grew up with a traditional door to door neighborhood Halloween and want to find that for my own family.

Anyway, is there a local neighborhood that regularly participates in Halloween night festivities, and also would it be... More

Will Allamuchy ever get a supermarket?

It's not too big of a deal to drive 22 minutes to Shoprite from Panther Valley.... Actually IT IS. Does anyone know if Allamuchy will ever develop some more commercial space, shops and a supermarket? It's kind of ridiculous that you have 3100 people living in a community with no market to service it in the vicinity. And Panther Valley is not the boondocks, it's right off route 80.

School Board Elections

I'm having trouble finding information about the platforms of the people running for school board election this year. Does anyone have links to somewhere I can read about their positions? I like to make an informed vote.

According to the mail-in ballot I got, the people running this year are Jill Adamec, Jessica A. Thompson, Mary Beth Maciag, and Jami Cavanagh (plus anyone running as a write-in of course). If anyone has info on their platforms I'd appreciate it!

I know it's politics, but try to keep things civil lol :)

Does anyone know if Villa Venice in Great Meadows is open for business.
Nobody answers their phone and after many rings, there is a message saying that their mail box is full.
I tried calling them a couple of weeks ago and again today.
