City honors 100-year-old
Janis Levine was born to Estelle and Albert Sachs on October 29, 1921. A graduate of Bayonne High School, she was married for 22 years to William Levine. She held several positions of leadership in the Bayonne and Bayonne-Jersey Chapters of Hadassah and is a member of Temple Emanu-El. On her birthday this year, the city honored Levine.
“We are very proud that she has lived her century of life here in our community,” Mayor James Davis said. “I have declared today, Janis Levine Day in Bayonne!”
Christmas Tree Drive
Last December and January, the Division of Recreation held a Christmas Tree Drive with a great response from many families who donated their used trees.
Now, the Division of Recreation will be distributing the used trees to those who are in need. For those who are in need of a used Christmas Tree, email the Division of Recreation at email@example.com with a name, address and phone number.
There will be a lottery to determine the distribution of trees. The lottery will take place the week of Nov. 29. Trees will be ready for pick up at the Bayonne Community Museum on Saturday, Dec. 4.
If you are interested in donating a used Christmas tree, contact the Division of Recreation at 201-858-6127.
The city will hold a free rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, Nov. 13, from 9 a.m. to noon, in front of City Hall at 630 Avenue C. The location has been moved from 16th Street to the City Hall exterior, where the building’s second floor overhang will provide shelter in the event of inclement weather.
The clinic will handle dogs from 9 to 11 a.m., and cats from 11 to noon. The clinic is only for dogs and cats owned by Bayonne residents. The clinic will not vaccinate any other kinds of animals.
All animals brought to the clinic must be on a leash and accompanied by an adult who will place the animal on the examination table. All cats must be in pet carriers.
Owners must clean up after their animals. A licensed veterinarian will administer the vaccine at no charge. Unleashed animals and pets unaccompanied by adults will not be admitted. Pets must be four months of age or older to participate in the clinic.
Dog and cat licenses must be renewed by Jan. 31, 2022. A late fee of $5 will be added to the license fee, beginning Feb. 1, 2022. For questions about licenses, rabies, and the clinic, contact the Registrar in the City Clerk’s Office at 201-858-6029.
