Cranford Radio concludes its series of introductory interviews with the current members of the township committee. Mary O’Connor began her three year term on January 1. We started off by learning a bit about her background.
Don’t be surprised if a few years from now you hear someone from Cranford announcing the next Triple Crown winner. John Piassek graduated from Cranford High this year but he’s already had the opportunity to guest call a race at Monmouth Park.

Fresh produce, baked goods, even pickles and olives await you at the Cranford Farmers’ Market. The market held a ribbon-cutting on Thursday afternoon. Among those on hand was the assistant secretary of the New Jersey Department of Agriculture. Cranford Radio was also present and has this report.
For the third consecutive year Friends of Colin held a benefit concert at Cranford High School on Tuesday night to raise money to find a cure for Ewing’s sarcoma and to remember Colin Maher. Lauren Costa is running this year’s concert and she spoke about the evening’s event.

A Toute Heure is celebrating its seventh anniversary this month. The restaurant is located at 232 Centennial Avenue in the Centennial Village shopping area. Opened for a much shorter time, just since December, is its sister restaurant 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar across the street at 215 Centennial Avenue. Andrea Carbine owns both along with her husband, Jim, and she talked with Cranford Radio about the restaurants.
