This week Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of
Superstorm Sandy, and as such a number of local events commemorating
and reflecting on the anniversary will be held.
Stevens Institute will commemorate the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy Tuesday with a free community program that recollects life in Hoboken during the storm and emphasizes the lessons learned in its aftermath. A session called "After Hurricane Sandy: Lessons Learned for Bolstering Resilience," will be held at 1 p.m., followed at 7 p.m. by a presentation from select storm survivors and volunteers who will share their own personal experiences during Sandy.
The Hoboken Historical Museum will screen a new documentary about the run-up from Superstorm Sandy to the November 2012 election this Wednesday at 7 p.m. City clerk James Farina is featured in the documentary, which will be followed by a panel discussion.
The free movie screening is the first in a series of lectures and programs planned for the museum's new Superstorm Sandy exhibit, which is now open at the Hoboken Historical Museum through July 6, 2014. An opening reception for the exhibit was held Saturday night.
The final two of four Quality of Life Coalition forums scheduled in advance of the Nov. 5 election will be held this week at Our Lady of Grace School auditorium, on Willow Avenue at 5th Street. A forum on the rent control ballot question will be held Monday and a debate among Hoboken Board of Education candidates will be held Tuesday. Both forums begin at 7 p.m.
Prospective animal adopters can pay any price they choose for their new pet from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at the Liberty Humane Society as part of the shelter's second annual "Name Your Price" adoption promotion.
