Coun. Scott advised the public that she had an opportunity to meet with "ECHO Moms" of the Brielle elementary School to discuss means of making the school more environmentally friendly.

Among the topics discussed was the Borough DPW's assumption of the School's Recycling Program, but after a discussion with Superintendent & Recycling Coordinator Burkhardt and the School's Chief Custodian, it was agreed that the current operation, one that Coun. Scott was able to observe at first hand, was working smoothly. However, the Borough did offer to provide additional recycling containers and this made the Moms happy.

Coun. Scott added that she would continue her relationship with the Group and other programs would be investigated, including the renewal of the compost effort.

Coun. Scott also informed the public that a "Shredder Day" was in the works for May and another community might be invited to get involved to ensure sufficient volume to make the project worthwhile.

Coun. Nolan cited the success of the Board of Recreation's recent trip to Camelback and added that some fifty residents participated. He also noted that the "Three On Three" basketball tournament was scheduled for Friday at the Elementary School and approximately two hundred children had signed up to participate. Finally, the deadline for entry into the annual "Snow Man Building" contest was March 15th. Photos could be dropped off at Borough Hall where Sherri Hopkins was coordinating the program.

Turning to the Library, Coun. Nolan advised the public of upcoming American Red Cross Open House that would include CPR Training for adults and children alike. The baby Sitting Club, for children eleven to eighteen, would be held on March 26th from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm. The cost was $65.00.

Neither Coun. Shaak or Gorham had reports. Coun. Visceglia advised the public that the Finance Committee was engaged in the preparation of the 2011 budget and the target date for introduction was March 14th, 2011.

Designating the Month of March as "Women's History Month"

WHEREAS, New Jersey women of every race, class, and ethnic background have made historic contributions to the growth and strength of our State in countless recorded and unrecorded ways;
WHEREAS, New Jersey women have played and continue to play a critical economic, cultural, and social role in every sphere of the life of the State by constituting a significant portion of the labor force working inside and outside of the home;
WHEREAS, New Jersey women have played a unique role-throughout the history of the State by providing the majority of the volunteer labor force of the State;

WHEREAS, New Jersey women of every race, class, and ethnic background served as early leaders in the forefront of every major progressive social change movement;

WHEREAS, New Jersey women have been leaders, not only in securing their own rights of suffrage and equal opportunity, but also in the abolitionist movement, the emancipation movement, the industrial labor movement, the civil rights movement, and other movements, especially the peace movement, which create a more fair and just society for all;
WHEREAS, despite these contributions, the role of women in history has been consistently overlooked and undervalued, in the literature, teaching and study of American history; and
