Almost a year has passed since the 2010 Flood of Fairfield and the creation of the Passaic River Basin Flood Advisory Commission.  The Passaic River Basin Flood Advisory Commission as created by New Jersey Governor Christie's Executive Order No. 23, were responsible for "identifying both short-term and long-term recommendations to enhance flood mitigation efforts, emergency response planning and streamlining requirements that impede post-flooding recover."  In addition the Flood Advisory Commission was responsible for identifying ways to minimize damage in the future and minimizing flood impacts to residents and businesses.     On February 10, 2011 the Passaic River Flood Advisory Commission issued its 15-point plan to mitigate the impact of floodings in Morris, Passaic and Bergen count...

Well after all the hype, it finally happened.....Fairfield New Jersey Going Green ~ Saving one tree at a time in the schools and throughout the town!   In January, The Fairfield Home & School Association went paperless directing Fairfield families to their Fairfield HSA website for lunch menus, HSA sponsored program's sign-up forms, and other pertinent HSA related materials.  Just by putting the lunch menus online, alone that saved 7000 pieces of paper for the entire school year!

December 21, 2010 marked the First Day of Winter, 5 days later on December 26, 2010 we were hit with our last snowstorm of 2010! Here we are only 30 something days into Winter and Mother Nature has called for snow again in Essex County.  Fairfield New Jersey Public Schools and West Essex Regional School District have already called for delayed openings (90 minute delay) for school tomorrow.  We just had a necessary delayed opening on Tuesday this week due to the snow/ice storm that hit early morning.  Last week we were off for a snow day (which didn't really amount to that much snow after all) and the week before an early dismissal for snow which I kept my kids home from school for.   I don't mind the snow while I'm sitting cozy in my house and my kids are playing outside in the snow, b...

My last few posts on What to do in Fairfield, New Jersey has been focused on What to do in Fairfield, New Jersey WITH KIDS.  Last night I changed my things to do in Fairfield, New Jersey theme a little and wrote about a Wine Tasting Open House in Fairfield, New Jersey which got me thinking about more fun stuff to do in Fairfield, New Jersey without the kids. Viking Cooking School offers a variety of hands-on classes or kick back, relax and learn about your favorite foods.  I know I said this post wasn't focused on things to do with kids in Fairfield, NJ but Viking Cooking School even offers classes for kids and teenagers.  You can even test-drive a Viking appliance before you buy one.   Save a life by getting trained in First Aid and CPR by Lifesavers, Inc.  LifeSavers, Inc. is an autho...
