On November 19, 2015, Residents from Linden's 5th Ward participated in Family Fun Night hosted by Councilwoman Rhashonna Cosby-Hurling and RCCA. The event had a Thanksgiving theme; there was a well-balanced meal provided that incorporated the choosemyplate.gov guidelines. Families also got a chance to get a little exercise with the encouragement of the city's Let's Move representative Ms. Altodor.
"I commend Councilwoman Cosby-Hurling for all her efforts and for making Linden a Let's Move community; this is a great idea to provide nutritional education and physical fitness all in one event, especially right before the holidays," says Altidor.
In addition to the physical fitness, and my plate information, families enjoyed a fun trivia game and a wholesome meal. 5th Ward resident H. Edens was pleased with the activities offered at the event and hopes that this will become an annual event stating, " This is great, I keep trying to tell my friends they should move to my neighborhood, we have a great councilwoman!"
The final event planned for 2015 will be the annual Santa Visit. On Saturday, December 19th at the Linden Multi-Purpose Center from 11 am until 1 pm. Children will get to make and take a craft as well as take photos with Santa and enjoy light refreshments.
