ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS

As surely as spring brings crocuses and daffodils, the need for spring-cleaning brings the annual Town-Wide Garage Sale in Atlantic Highlands. This year’s edition will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 17.

The town-wide sale is an area tradition. This year, more than 80 households will participate within the 1-square-mile town. The sale is open to the public and visitors can explore Atlantic Highlands for bargains on goods of all kinds from housewares and furniture to jewelry and collectibles.

Upon arriving in town, visitors can drive along First Avenue to borough hall, where volunteers will hand out maps showing participating homes. Many sellers are within walking distance of each other, and there is ample free parking throughout the borough.

Visitors are encouraged to have lunch at one of Atlantic Highlands’ renowned restaurants.

The rain date is Sunday, May 18.

Additional information is available by visiting www.ahnj.com/ahnj/Recreation or call the borough at 732-291-1444, ext. 690.

FREEHOLD

The Monmouth County Federation of Republican Women will have its next meeting on “Financial Survival Training for Women,” at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 29, at County Republican Headquarters, 2 Monmouth Ave.

Speaker Linda Merling is the founder of a four-generation lighting design business. She has been involved in politics since the Kean administration as a political strategist and campaign manager for former 11th district State Senator Joseph Palaia. Among the issues she’ll speak about are women’s problems dealing with money, individual risk tolerance, assessing where you are financially and goal setting. Even today, women are sometimes not fully familiar with their family finances, and a change in their situation can be devastating.

Beverages and dessert will be provided; guests can bring dinner or a snack. Everyone is welcome.

For more information about the meeting or organization, please contact President Eve Hershkowitz at HershkowitzE@OptOnline.net or 732-612-3798, or membership chair Rhoda Chodosh at RebelRho@AOL.com or 732-616-5585, or check the Facebook page.
