You're Invited to a Community Open House at Fisherman's Mark


Fisherman’s Mark is hosting an Open House on Sunday, November 5, 2017 from 2pm to 4pm, welcoming the community to come meet their staff, volunteers, board members and tour the facility, while enjoying light snacks.
For 35 years, the non-profit social service agency has been serving the underserved with programs that provide assistance for those whose needs are not being met by other organizations in the areas of education, employment, nutrition and life skills.
Fisherman’s Mark, led by executive director Linda Meacham, provides comprehensive programs designed to work to address the often complex issues people face. “We advocate for people,” explains Meacham. “We work with them to resolve their problems. We don’t hand out money, but we offer help.” The programs include a food pantry, case management, and a nationally accredited day care and after school program.
“A community needs to take care of its people,” says Meacham. “Not everyone is as lucky as everyone else, and that is as true for small towns as for other places.”
The community is invited to drop in at the organizations  wonderful new space at Hibernia Fire House (37 South Main Street in Lambertville) on November 5th to learn more about what the organization has accomplished over the past year.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
