    A Perfect Pairing: Chef David Burke & Suzanne Sicora-Ludwig Prepare for Taste of the State 2023

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    Chef David Burke & Suzanne Sicora-Ludwig team up to help Soup Kitchen 411 combat food insecurity while supporting local restaurants. The COVID-19 pandemic hit the state of New Jersey particularly hard. With over nine million Garden State residents living in close proximity, it was anticipated early-on that coronavirus would be difficult to contain. Aware of this possibility, in early 2020, the state government ordered the temporary closure of many businesses and services to ensure that New Jerseyans limited their exposure to one another, the idea being that reduced public contact would curb the spread of the virus and hasten the end of the pandemic.

    Jersey First! A Discussion with NJ’s First Lady Tammy Snyder Murphy

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    “Central Jersey does exist,” New Jersey’s First Lady emphatically stated. “I know because it’s where I live.” “The nice thing about living in Central Jersey is that it means I can stay out of the fray when it comes to the North Jersey/South Jersey divide debate,” she joked. Tammy Murphy and her husband moved to Monmouth County twenty-five years ago and settled in Middletown Township. Their careers had brought them to Hong Kong for a time, and when they were relocated to New York City for work, the Murphys began looking for places to live in the region that would meet their needs and enable them to commute to the city.

    The Other Side of the Fence: Naval Weapons Station Earle

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    For most people driving along Route 34 or over Normandy Road, Naval Weapons Station Earle (NWSE) appears to be simply the woods on the other side of the fence. Of course in the back of one’s mind there is always the knowledge that there is something important going on behind the scenes that keeps us safe but for so many that mystery was always in the shadows. Then in the middle 2020 Captain Ed Callahan assumed duty as Commanding Officer, and despite the challenges of the pandemic, he has been steadfast in his determination to show the importance of NWSE not just for protecting our country but also serving as an invaluable resource to our local community.

She recruited many of her Rumson neighbors to set up programs focused on STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

    Beyond the Brand: Meet Kristina Henderson, Owner & CEO of Henderson Promos

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    Behind this innovative and expanding Red Bank business… is a woman. In 2017, Kristina Henderson took the helm at a promotional products company, tripled sales in one year, and rebranded the company known today as Henderson Promos. Her ownership and efforts resulted in the company’s recognition as both a certified Women’s Business Enterprise and SBA Woman Owned Small Business. Kristina grew up in Colts Neck and credits her versatile background in preparing her for the many roles involved in managing a business. Perhaps most striking is Kristina’s ability to engage with people. She was awarded the titles of Miss Congeniality and Most Photogenic as a finalist in the Miss Massachusetts USA Pageant in 2016, and the Best Interview Award in the 2012 Miss New Jersey USA Pageant. She has a sense of adventure, sparked by her stint as a flight attendant at age 19, and an appreciation of service from her time in the restaurant industry. She studied journalism while living in Hawaii, finished her degree at Boston University, worked as a news producer in New Hampshire, fund-raised for the Human Rights Campaign in DC, and volunteered as a “discharge buddy” at Boston Children’s Hospital.
