Dearborn Market's festival, puppet show, dramatic reading, holiday lighting at Exit 116.
This was to be the weekend for Holmdel's multi-faceted Winterfest festival at Bayonet Farm, but it was unfortunately cancelled due to problems caused by Hurricane Sandy.

Too many safety concerns as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
Holmdel Township's dream of transforming its picturesque Bayonet Farm into a magical multi-day wintertime festival Nov. 30 - Dec. 2 has been iced. Township Clerk Maureen Doloughty, a member of the Winterfest planning committee, said there were too many concerns that there could be adequate power at the site, and worries that the ground would be too soft for the 45-foot Ferris Wheel, carousel, and ice-skating rink following Hurricane Sandy. "I'm so disappointed, you have no idea" she said Wednesday. "We were really looking forward to this." A 14-foot tree had been obtained and Winterfest commemorative ornaments were designed. Carolers, music bands, craft merchants were scheduled. Recreation Coordinator Deborah Dow spent the day calling …

Roman Oben stops by the Recreation Camp to talk fitness, fun, and flag football.
It wasn't your typical Friday pool day at Holmdel Recreation Camp last week. The children and staff got a visit from former NFL player Roman Oben, on hand to talk about the importance of physical fitness and sports safety. He led both campers and staff in stretching exercises and running drills, then finished the day with signing autographs. He was also promoting an upcoming flag football program starting in September for children ages 5-13, sponsored by Holmdel's Recreation Department and Oben Flag Football, (see attached flier). Oben was a starting left tackle in the NFL for over 90% of the games he played. Over his career, he played for the Giants, Browns, Chargers, and the Super Bowl XXXVII Buccaneers. Since 2003, Oben has run …

Holmdel Patch was curious about the evening Martial Arts classes at the Senior/Community Center. We asked the instructor to tell us about himself and his class. My name is McLendon Bowden. My martial arts title is Shihan (master). I first started studying martial arts at the age of 13 under instructors Soke S. Papasan Canty, Soke Haisan Kaleak and Soke Lusayne S. Alston, in Brooklyn, NY in 1972. Since moving to Hazlet in 1996, I have been teaching an introductory martial arts course at the Matawan School Enrichment Program (MSEP) under Program Director Leonard Brokaw, showing parents and students the basic fundamentals of martial arts. Some time later, I introduced martial arts aerobics, or Kick Boxing, to the program for those adults and …
