It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton


RECYCLING OPPORTUNITY: “Princeton Township has been very aware of the need for recycling. We started collecting computers, cell phones, and other things not traditionally recyclable before other communities did. And now, we will be the first residential community in New Jersey to have the curbside organic waste recycling program.” Janet Pellichero, Princeton Township Recycling Coordinator, is very enthusiastic about this new program.

Princeton is known and admired for its many assets: its unique place in American history, in education, its desirable location, the charm and convenience of its shopping scene. It was and is home to famous people. Now, it will add still another “first” to its list of accomplishments — this in the important area of environmental protection.


QUALITY CHOICES: “We’re set apart from other awning companies by the variety of our products and the amount of fabrics we carry. We offer a very broad array of fabric choices.” Staff members of Awning Design West include from left, co-owner Alan “Gordy” Techner, show room receptionist Jodi Santimauro, and product consultant Mitchel Galinsky. “Our company has a long-standing reputation. Service is a priority, and we are very customer-focused.”

It’s like adding another room to your house, says Alan “Gordy” Techner, co-owner of Awning Design West. Indeed, the addition of an awning over a deck or patio can certainly extend living space.
