“WellCare is honored and excited to again be a part of the Union County’s PRIDE events,” said Clarissa Robles, Senior Community Relations Specialist for WellCare New Jersey. “WellCare is committed to helping its communities live better, healthier lives, and removing barriers to health, social and educational resources for everyone.”

“Recently, GLADD released their annual Accelerating Acceptance report noting that 2017 is the first time the report has shown a drop in general acceptance for LGBTQ people – consequences of divisive rhetoric and actions from the current administration in Washington,” said Freeholder Alexander Mirabella, liaison to the LGBTQ Ad Hock Committee. “The Freeholder Board is committed to countering attacks on the LGBTQ community with programs and services that support resilience, builds acceptance and defending the core American value that all people are created equal.”

The Union County Office of LGBTQ Services, under the Division of Outreach and Advocacy in the Department of Human Services, provides a platform for leadership and collaboration to support equality, and serves as a catalyst for advocacy, awareness and action on current and emerging issues that impact the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals.

The 27th Annual Blackwood Pumpkin Festival
Now that summer is officially in the rearview mirror – even with an occasional warm-weather day – the time has come for thoughts to turn to things autumnal. That could mean painting a pumpkin or constructing a scarecrow for Halloween decorating. It might be checking out a craft fair for an early start on holiday shopping. It could involve an outdoor spot with live entertainment to see and hear without slathering on high-number sunscreen. Or maybe it’s just taking in an activity that’s fun for the whole gang, even the four-legged ones.
