Introducing Friends to My Crown Maple Old Fashioned Cocktail RecipeSubmitted by Robb on December 8, 2011 - 6:44pm
One of the reasons Lydia and I started Crown Maple was because we are passionate about preserving the land, strengthening the communities around us, and advancing the health of children and families.
Earlier this month, we hosted a Citizen Schools information session for about 45 people. I'm on the board of Citizen Schools New Jersey, which works closely with the Newark Public School System. Our guest speaker was Newark Mayor Corey Booker, who expanded upon the importance of Citizen Schools in the Newark school system but also inspired many of our guests to get involved and volunteer time as a Citizen School teacher and mentor. Lucy Castillo, head of Citizen Schools New Jersey, also attended the event.
