Open House August 3 for New Hopewell Borough In-Home Childcare and Preschool Program

07/18/2013

On August 3 at 10 a.m., The Butterfly Garden, a new, home-based childcare and preschool will hold an open house.  The open house will be held in Hopewell Borough, and will run from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m.

 

Two local mothers, Marla Hanan, of Hopewell, and Beth Patchel, of Lawrenceville, will be starting the program in Marla’s home.  “We are really thrilled for this beginning. We had each wished for this kind of home based program when our children were younger.  Above all, the program respects the needs of a young child and offers full or part time care that mimics a day spent with family.  Children will have a lot of time to explore, play and to develop a connection with each other and with the natural world,” said Marla Hanan.

 

“The program is guided by the values and by the way that we have (and continue) to raise our own children.   We have each honored the developmental stages of our children and have allowed each of them to develop at their own pace.  We also strive to nurture each of their innate gifts and interests.  We are now beginning to see the fruits of this as our children are succeeding in their various school environments,  and are happy, sociable children with a lot of joy in their hearts!,” said Beth Patchel.

 

Among the highlights of the program will be the nourishing home made meals that will be made from local and organic food from community farms.  Music, movement, playtime with natural materials and walks to the park are among the other activities that the Butterfly Garden will offer.

 

For more information about the Butterfly Garden, and to RSVP for the open house, please visit www.Hopewellbutterfly.com, or send an email to hopewellbutterfly@gmail.com.

Sophia Rose Designs Moves to Hopewell Borough

10/05/2015

Hopewell Borough, NJ, October 5, 2015— Local interior design company Sophia Rose Designs will move from its original and much-loved location in Pennington to a larger space in Hopewell Borough, opening on October 6, 2015. As the team works to bring more offerings to make each house into the home it deserves to be, the company’s motto of “Live in Beauty…Love Your Space” has never been more true.

 

Sophia Rose Designs (SRD), founded by Lisa Sprague just a year ago, seeks to help clients create the unique beauty they want in an environment. Be it through interior design, home staging, or even decorating for a specific event, each project is carefully tailored to clients’ individual tastes and budgets. The company boasts a full team that covers every aspect of design, including an in-house contractor and builder.

 

In the new space, SRD will be able to share more handpicked retail offerings, such as furniture, accessories, and design materials, in addition to the world-class design services that SRD has become known for. The new space will also allow for a larger focus on creative workshops, many of which are hosted in conjunction with other local businesses. Sprague, a firm believer in the strength of the community, utilizes each workshop as a fundraiser, supporting local non-profits like Christine’s Hope for Kids and the Greenwood Avenue Farmers’ Market. Sprague’s goal is to provide an easy, fun way for members of the community to contribute to local non-profits while learning something new, such as decorating and creating unique tablescapes. Past workshops have included grilling techniques with Mrs. G’s TV and Appliances and flower arranging with Dahlia’s Floral Concepts. “Each workshop provides us all with an opportunity to do something special,” says Sprague. The next workshop, “Decorating for the Holidays,” will take place on November 11th, and is in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

 

In line with her commitment to community service, Sprague and SRD formed a team in 2010 for the annual Out of the Darkness Walk, which also benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Team Jojo, which was created in remembrance of Sprague’s son, Jordan, walked again at this year’s event. The Walk, held at beautiful Buccleuh Park in New Brunswick, took place this year on October 4th . To sponsor Team Jojo team, please visit www.outofthedarkness.org. Proceeds fund suicide hotlines, education of school officials, and support for survivors.

 

To sign up for one of SRD’s many community-oriented workshops, learn more about SRD, or simply find inspiration, please visit www.sophiarosedesigns.net, call 609-730-4171, or visit SRD at its new home at 37 W. Broad Street, Hopewell, New Jersey.

Snow Information from Hopewell Borough

12/02/2010

In order to allow crews to clear streets after a snowfall, there is to be no parking on snow-covered streets 12 hours after a snow event.  Snow emergency parking is available at the Train Station parking lot, behind the Firehouse, or at the Masonic Hall.

Sidewalks should be cleared three feet wide, or the width of the sidewalk, whichever is less.  Do not throw snow back into the street. 

When shoveling your driveway, place the snow on the RIGHT side of the driveway.  This reduces the amount of snow the plows push back into the driveway when cleaning up after a snow event.   All portable basketball hoops should be removed from the side of the road before each forecasted snow event.  At minimum, the hoop should be turned away from the street.

Following is the Borough's ordinance pertaining to snow removal:
3-5  Removal of Snow or Ice.
3-5.1 Snow or Ice.  Owners, occupants ot tenants of any property fronting on any street in the borough shall remove all snow and ice from the abutting sidewalks of such street to the curb or pavement edge or, in the event of ice which may be so frozen as to make removal impraticable, shall cause the same to be thoroughly covered with sand, ashes or other material to provide traction, within 12 hours of daylight after the snow has falled or the ice has formed.  Sidewalks shall be cleared to a width of three feet or the entire width of the sidewalk, whichever is less.

No owner, occupant or tenant of any premises abutting on any street or sidewalk shall throw, place or deposit any snow or ice accumulated on private property into or upon any such street or sidewalk in the borough.

Valid from 12/02/2010 to 03/31/2011

Hopewell Borough Planning and Zoning Board Approves Sourland Cycles on East Broad Street

12/10/2013

By a unanimous vote last week, the Hopewell Borough Planning and Zoning Board approved plans to build Sourland Cycles on East Broad Street.


The store, to be located next to the Lotus sports car dealer and in the same block as the new Brick Farm Market, will be approximately 3,400 square feet when completed next summer.


“It’s a fantastic location in the middle of the borough and the crossroads for countless cyclists in the area,” said Michael Gray, one of the partners in the project. “The borough, the Historic Preservation Commission, the planning board and the area’s cyclists have been incredibly supportive of this proposal. We are really excited to get started.”


Designed by Hopewell architect Paul Buda, plans call for expanding out of the back of the current accountant’s office and adding a two storey addition with an open interior mezzanine on the second floor.  The front façade and porch will remain as the street front entrance, while a second ground-level side entrance for cyclists will be added. A small parking lot will be in the rear.


Russ White, co-owner of Firehouse Cycles in Yardley, is one of the partners in the venture. “It’s a crowded market,” he said. “And in this age of internet competition with bricks and mortar stores, you simply need the display space to be successful and create an attractive retail environment. You can’t sell bikes you don’t have.”


“We should have room to display over 100 bikes,” said Gray. “If you include our storage space in the barn we could be the largest bike store in the area. What that means is we will have plenty of room to display a variety of bikes, clothing and accessories without feeling cramped and crowded.”


Construction is projected to begin in February.
