    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    The phrase “it takes a village to affect change” developed a new meaning for the Lipnicky family in February of 2019, after what began as shoulder pain for Olivia Lipnicky- the 8-year-old daughter of Brian and Emma Lipnicky and older sister to her brother, Jack- turned into the unnerving diagnosis of a spinal cord tumor, later identified as a diffuse midline glioma on March 1, 2019.

    Bill Boglioli: Family, Community, Dedication

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    Two of Central Jersey’s most cherished institutions, the Woolley-Boglioli and Holmdel Funeral Homes have been caring for Monmouth County families for generations. Originally founded by the Sexton family in 1882, the Long Branch location took on the Woolley name in the 1920s, when Willis A. Woolley joined the business. Woolley would later become the owner of the funeral home and continued to build its practice and reputation.

    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.

    Q: What can occur when a motivated individual acts on an idea and enlists the community to make it a reality? ​A: STEAMpark, a non-profit organization to inspire life-long learning. Five years ago, Leigh Dym— concerned about both the lack of after school activities for underserved children, and scarce activities for all those not involved in sports—decided to act. She recruited many of her Rumson neighbors to set up programs focused on STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. And so began STEAMpark, an organization dedicated to helping children in kindergarten through eighth grade to each reach their full potential, regardless of income or zip code.

    Working Momkind: Connecting Mothers Across Communities

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    Meet Your Neighbor: Ingrid Read Becoming a mother is a profound experience, and Ingrid Read soon realized it also gives rise to many unforeseen feelings and questions, not only about motherhood, but also about balancing personal and professional ambitions. Three years ago, Ingrid found herself scouring the internet for some direction and knew she could not possibly be alone in feeling a bit lost. She recognized the sense it would make for information to be available all in one place, and so, while on maternity leave, Ingrid created Working Momkind, an online community now helping more than 176,000 moms worldwide find support and information. Last year, she added an additional layer of support–she is now a certified Postpartum Doula. Meet Ingrid Read, whose decision to solve a common problem has led to a source of comfort for so many.

    Kristina Rems and Alexandra Cruz: Sisters Changing the World through Education

    By Community Magazine | Comments Off

    When meeting ordinary people doing extraordinary work, I’m always reminded of the story of the starfish. You’ve probably read it as well. The little boy is walking along the sand littered with thousands of beached starfish and throwing some back in the ocean. An old man questions why he would bother to help a few when there’s no way he can help them all, telling the boy his efforts don’t matter. The little boy, picking up another starfish and casting it into the water, tells the old man, “It mattered to that one.” After a medical mission to Uganda, Alexandra Cruz, PharmD, sponsored a child and changed her life forever.

Jamie’s involvement with horses is broad in scope, from documenting the plight of those bound for slaughter, to traveling across the world to Mongolia to cover the ancient endurance races still held today.

    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.
