The art of Traditional Chinese Dragon and Lion Dancing is slowly becoming all but a memory in today's western society. Historically, however, Dragon and Lion dance has been an integral part of traditional Chinese Kung Fu school training for centuries. The Dragon and Lion Dance, while symbolizing good fortune, protects against negative influences. The Dragon dance will be performed by Yee's Hung Ga International Kung Fu Association to celebrate the zoo's new komodo dragon. Performances will occur between 11am and 2pm.
Time: 10:00 am–6:00 pm

The show will host the annual conventions of the Rossica Society of Russian Philately, the Ottoman and Near East Philatelic Society, and the New Jersey Postal History Society.

The Young Philatelic Leaders Fellowship will be at NOJEX selling a diverse selection of US and Worldwide Stamps and Covers. The most significant consignment is the inventory of the late John Nunes. John loved stamp shows and he understood the importance of young collectors. John's inventory of US and Worldwide postal history will be offered at deep discounts from John's marked retail with a portion of the proceeds donated to the YPFL to support further Youth Programs and the APS. It is our hope that sales will be brisk enough to support a fellowship in his name.

Heller utilizes old, discarded materials such as transparent mailing labels, stamps, letters, maps, architectural drawings, match book covers, and eyeglass lenses,
and subsequently transforms them into art. “I began frequenting flea markets and antique stores searching for fabric and paper materials that were weathered, stained, and marked by time,” explains Heller. “My goal is to
manipulate and transform these materials to create something that is unique.” Fascinated by textiles, primitive art and ethnic design, she repurposes materials and then combines them with mixed media, including
Heller has been teaching Textile Design and Collage for 25 years. Her works are exhibited everywhere from HBO Headquarters in New York City to the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to museums and galleries throughout NJ, NY, PA, KY, etc… She’s a graduate of the University of Delaware and the Rochester Institute of Technology. Heller currently resides in Bridgewater, New Jersey.

Students of all ages, who are interested in robotics should attend the district wide meeting about the robotics program. The CHS robots will be in action and kids can try to drive them. Two robots putt golf balls!
There are three divisions of robotics teams in the district--elementary, middle school and high school. Students work together in their division to design a robot and have it accomplish tasks. As the students move to the high school, the requirements are stricter as to teamwork, responsibilities and, of course, time commitment. All district teams should bring their robots and projects to the meeting. We hope to have representatives from US FIRST, the robotics organization with thousands of teams including a number from our district. Robotics clubs can be organized at the meeting and existing clubs can recruit new members.
The District is on track to start a robotics course in the fall of 2013. It may be available as independent study by the spring of 2012-13 school year.
Any questions, please contact Mr. Tumolillo at email@example.com.
