    “Operation Secure Shred” is being sponsored by Somerset County. This is a free document-shredding program at various locations around the county for residents who are not businesses. There is no pre-registration and you can watch while your documents are being shredded!

    Shredding events are held on eleven Saturdays, rain or shine, starting on April 23rd in Hillsborough. All shredding events are held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until the trucks are filled to capacity. Montgomery Township will have its free shredding event on September 24th at the Montgomery High School on Route 601 in Skillman.

    Residents from all 21 Somerset County municipalities can have personal documents shredded at as many free, on-site mobile paper-shredding events as they wish to attend. And residents do not have to reside in a town hosting an event to participate. According to the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders/Somerset County Division of Records Management, documents are commercially shredded by trained, licensed and bonded document-destruction specialists.The condition for the documents is rather straightforward:

    1. Staples and paperclips do not have to be removed.
    2. Residents can bring documents in up to six boxes, containers or bags per visit and may stay and watch as their documents are shredded.
    3. Residents will be asked to take back their receptacles; and finally
    4. Junk mail, magazines and newspapers will not be accepted.

    Operation Secure Shred is sponsored by the Somerset County Board of Freeholders in cooperation with the county Division of Records Management. For more information, call 908-203-6018 or email recordsmgmt@co.somerset.nj.us. You may also contact each of the Townships directly for more information.

    Have fun shredding!

    Each year, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we are encouraged to seek out small businesses and patronize them. American Express became the primary sponsor and driver of this advertising campaign, which started in 2010. But what about the rest of the year? Yes, we are in the throes of winter, it's cold and snowy, and who doesn't like the convenience of an Amazon.com or other online retailer (see: my post about my love of online grocery shopping) but it is important to shop locally year round.

    Shop Local Montgomery is a group of local business owners who are committed to shopping, eating, and giving locally. A list of the group's members is available on their website, shoplocalmontgomery.com. According to the 3/50 project, a national non-profit dedicated to the shop local movement, following these guidelines can have a huge impact on your local economy:

    1. Pick three local, independently-owned stores.
    2. Spend $50 total each month in these stores.
    3. For each $100 spent, $68 stays in the community through taxes and payroll, vs. $43 for chain stores. You can start the trend now by spending your dollars effectively.

    It’s no secret that when considering relocating to a new town with children, school districts are a pertinent factor in zoning in on a new permanent residence. With that being said, due to its highly regarded academic reputation and rankings, homebuyers are flocking to Montgomery! The statistics speak for itself.

    According to the district’s website, in the past decade alone, each graduating class has sent roughly 91% of graduates on to four-year colleges. Montgomery High School has adopted a system that puts an emphasis on academic, social and emotional learning objectives. Approximately 22 Advanced Placement and 15 Honors courses are offered at the high school. Montgomery’s school district, specifically the high school, received some noteworthy attention when it was recognized by New Jersey Monthly Magazine in 2012 as the 10th best high school in the state.

    Five schools make up Montgomery’s district – Orchard Hill, Village School, Lower Middle, Upper Middle and the High School. Each school has its own unique brand and provides students with a plethora of fun, educational activities outside of the everyday classroom. For example, Montgomery’s Upper Middle School offers its students opportunities to partake in the school’s newspaper, “CLAW,” as well as a digital photography class and a debate team. Orchard Hill Elementary encourages its students to read throughout the year by providing them a list of fun and exciting book options to indulge in during their summer recess! Montgomery is always looking to enhance its academic programs and is constantly adding new programs for academic enrichment.

    I distinctly remember my first walk through the Sourland Mountain Preserve. It was an extraordinary day in April in roughly 2005/2006. We had been experiencing a bit of inclement weather that April and when the sun finally came out to shine, it was time to pack up the car, get the kids ready and indulge in some outdoor adventure. As an avid outdoors man, nature is something that I have always admired and as a resident of Hillsborough, prior to this memorable day in April, I hadn't had the opportunity to explore this alluring and sizable plot of land. (The Sourland Mountains stretch out over rougly 4,000 acres of county-owned land and is spread throughout parts of Somerset, Hunterdon and Mercer Counties). Once we arrived, we headed over to Trailhead, where all the trails begin and end. Knowing we were not experts in hiking, we decided to take an easy stroll and embarked on the Pondside Trail which is about a 1/2 mile adventure. Immersed completely in nature, we were privileged to see an array of wildlife of which I cannot name along with some of the most alluring scenes. To say my family enjoyed the day is an understatement. Since my first adventure there, we have returned countless times and every client who purchases within these areas that a visit to the Sourland Mountain is a must! For outdoor enthusiasts, the options are endless. Enjoy hiking, biking, bird watching and horseback riding to name a few!

    Opening its doors in 1971, the Montgomery Cinema has transpired to an independent and foreign film enthusiast's favorite location in the area. Conveniently located directly at 1325 US Highway 206 in the Montgomery/Skillman area, this theater attracts an audience looking for films that represent a different side of media. In Central New Jersey, film enthusiasts looking to avoid mainstream box office hits, have limited options in regards to finding a theater that is not only reasonably priced, but offers "hard to find," independent and foreign films.
    New to the area? Look no further. As a resident of Hillsborough, in very close proximity to the Montgomery area, I have frequented this cinema often and have recommended it to several clients new to the area. If you're looking to take a step back in history and avoid the large crowds at the mainstream theaters in the area, drop in to the Montgomery Cinema to catch an eccentric film today! And while you're over there, enjoy dinner at one of the several phenomenal restaurants that are located across the street and down the road!

    The Manors at Montgomery, built in the late 80's/early 90's is a collection of 78 townhomes situated on the border of Princeton and Rocky Hill. These 2 and 3 bedroom townhouses feature one car garages, full basements, and attractive floor plans. This small community is very reasonably priced for an area with excellent schools, easy access to transportation and a quiet, idyllic setting. The restaurants and shopping of Nassau St in Princeton is just a few minutes away. Prices range from the lower 300's to just under 400,000. Give me a call to discuss homes on the market as well as those soon to be coming on the market in the Manors at Montgomery.
