As any year-round resident of the greater Green can tell you, the weeks after the end of summer are merely the starting gun for the real season of outdoor events; a prime-time panorama of runs, walks, bike tours, golf outings, race meets and other recreational activities most if not all of them dedicated to a Done Good cause.
Even with the first bracing breezes off the local waterways, there’s still plenty going on under the skies of October country this weekend and it begins tonight, with a simple stroll about town designed “to promote community wellness and safety.” A followup to a recent Talk About Red Bank public forum organized in the wake of an August 8 altercation that left borough resident Larry Yarbrough dead of multiple stab wounds the Community Unity Walk commences with a 6pm “meet and greet” inside Calvary Baptist Church at Bridge Avenue and River Street, after which representatives of co-sponsors Pilgrim Baptist Church, Count the Children Movement, Greater Red Bank NAACP, Iglesia La Mano De Dios, Nation of Islam of the Shore Area, Calvary Baptist Church and the PBC Men-of-Valor Street Walkers invite church and civic groups or individual citizens to join them on the streets of Red Bank. Additional info on tonight’s tour of positive reinforcement can be had by calling Pastor Terrence K. Porter at (732) 747-2348.
There’s more beneath October’s do-good moon, from a Fall Festival in Rumson and a charity Softball Tournament in Little Silver, to a songwriting contest in Fair Haven, a fundraiser Car Show in Middletown, and a slightly guignol-ish Blood Drive where the Banks run Red.
