Please use extra caution when driving!
The days are getting shorter and cooler and now we are fast approaching my favorite season, Autumn. I trust everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable summer. The town hosted some great events this past summer and a few more are scheduled for this fall.
The Health Department has scheduled its annual Health Fair for Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon. The basic blood test will be free for Kenilworth residents. There will also be free hearing and vision tests. Flu shots will be available for $20.00, though that cost can be covered by Medicare Part B. The fair will take place at St. Theresa's School.
Kenilworth's annual Street Fair will take place on Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. It will take place at its usual location on the Boulevard.
I look forward to seeing you at both of these events. I would like to finish by wishing all the school kids a successful school year and I hope all the parents enjoy the house being a little quieter for a few hours during the day.

disasters could happen in their community, know what to do to be safe and
mitigate damage, take action to increase their preparedness, and participate in
community resilience planning.
