A Community Bulletin

One week after the terror attacks on Mumbai, the Princeton University community will gather on Wednesday, December 3, for an interfaith vigil, paying tribute to the city and those affected by the attacks. A candlelight procession will begin at the Frist Campus Center South Lawn at 9:15 p.m. Participants will walk to Murray-Dodge Hall, where the vigil will take place from 10 to 11 p.m.

The Township Committee is looking to fill vacancies on several committees and commissions, including Planning Board, Recreation, Human Services, Cable TV, the Environmental Committee, and the Sewer Operating Committee.

The Committee will consider applications before its reorganization meeting in early January.

The Red Cross has designated December 13 “National Day of Giving for the American Red Cross” as part of its efforts to reach the $100 million fundraising goal for the Campaign for Disaster Relief, which helps to replenish the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. The fund was depleted as a result of a very busy year for disasters, including a record number of tornadoes, severe flooding in the central United States and an active hurricane season. From January through October 2008, the Red Cross had already responded to more than 70 large-scale disasters. Area Red Cross volunteers will be available to take donations on December 13. Donations also may be made by going to, calling (800) REDCROSS (for Spanish-speakers [800] 257-7575), sending contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund to your local Red Cross chapter or to the American Red Cross, P. O. Box 37243, Washington, DC 20013, or using your cell phone to donate $5 by text messaging the keyword “GIVE” (4483) to “2HELP” (24357).
