Freeholder John W. King, the Board’s liaison for Parks and Recreation, stated, “The County’s summer nature programs are of a great educational and recreational benefit to Hunterdon County school children. It gets kids away from the video games and out into nature. The program’s growth can be directly attributed to the creativity and dedication of the Parks and Recreation staff.”

Senior Artists Make Hunterdon Proud
For 44 years The Hunterdon County Division of Senior Services has sponsored a springtime Senior Art Show and 2018 was no different. Well, yes it was—the art, once again, was better than ever before.

The art on display is oil, acrylic, water color, mixed media, photography and sculpture. “I’m surprised each year the superb talent exhibited, though I shouldn’t be,” remarked Freeholder Suzanne Lagay, who participates annually in the awards ceremony. “The vast array of subject matter, talent excellence and artistic interpretation is a joy to see.”

Hunterdon Central Student’s
'Creative App' Awarded HackHunterdon Grand Prize
FLEMINGTON, N.J. – A 15-year-old high school student, Lorenzo Sanelli of Three Bridges, won first place and $5,000 in the second annual HackHunterdon Hackathon competition for creating a messaging app that allows users to anonymously post messages that fade away in sixty seconds and are not stored. Also, no registration or passwords are required to use the app.

The event, held at Lorenzo’s home school, Hunterdon Central Regional High School June 9-10, is a 24-hour tech product creation competition that attracted dozens of competitors from the tri-state area and was open to people of all ages.

“The new features helped us provide a more comprehensive experience for participants this year and the addition of the students really amped the energy level up throughout the event,” said Marc Saluk, economic development director for Hunterdon County. “The hackathon continues to be a key piece of the county’s innovation initiative but is also really just a lot of fun as well.”
