Hyronomous A. Frog, The Frog Prince and its all-adult cast will delight children ages 3 to 10 while entertaining their families in the 16th season of the Hudson Theatre Ensemble Children’s Series Silly on Sixth.  It is a wonderful piece of work, filled with all the good-natured action and fun a kid or caregiver could want while gently addressing the themes of keeping your promises;  the power of affection and kindness; the importance of being open-minded; and how appearances can be deceiving.  With rich humor for adults and children as well as delightful physical comedy for even the youngest theatregoers, this play is a proven winner.

And if your child has a November birthday, what an easy way to celebrate by incorporating Silly on Sixth into your birthday plans!  The entire audience will sing Happy Birthday to your darling child; your group has a wonderful time seeing Hyronomous A. Frog, The Frog Prince; the kids meet the actors after the show and you can take photos of your child with the actors; then off you go to one of Hoboken’s many family-friendly eateries to continue the festivities.  Just call Florence for details at 201-377-7014.

The Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition’s Board of Education Candidates Forum Set for Thursday, Oct. 20, 6:30 p.m. at the Hoboken Elks Lodge

The Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition is pleased to invite all Hoboken residents to its 2016 Board of Education candidates’ forum, continuing a tradition the Coalition has maintained for over a decade. These forums give Hoboken voters an opportunity to hear directly from the candidates running for the three open seats on the Board of Education in the November 8, 2016, election. This year’s forum will take place on Thursday, October 20, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 1005 Washington Street.

These events are arranged by the Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition, Inc., and moderated by Bob Bowdon, a professional interviewer and longtime resident of Hoboken, who has expertly conducted QLC-sponsored forums over the last eight years. These events have consistently presented a lively exchange of policy ideas, opinions and comments on issues that the voters themselves consider the most important.

Written questions will be solicited from the audience and submitted to a panel, who will select the clearest and most concise questions on a wide range of topics. Candidates will have a minute and a half to respond to each question, and a one-minute rebuttal will be allowed with permission from the moderator. Each candidate will have an opportunity to make one-minute opening introductory and closing remarks, and a timekeeper will ensure that time limits are respected in answering questions.

About the QLC
Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition is a non-profit, non-partisan citizen organization that has been active in Hoboken over the last decade. The QLC led the successful efforts to prevent construction of the Devils hockey arena in southern Hoboken, was instrumental in forging the western alignment of the Light Rail route in Hoboken, and with several other groups fought the early battles to secure 1600 Park Avenue as designated parkland.  It participates with other civic organizations to advocate for ordinances for good government practices and to protect the historic structures that lend the city its character.  In 2008, QLC formed the Committee for a Green Hoboken, which worked with the city on an agreement to control carbon dioxide emissions and sustainable development ordinances, and helped secure funding for an energy audit of municipal buildings.
