COVID is still active in Woodbridge, wear a mask & social distance.


This is Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac and today is Friday, November 26.
The Township had 128 new cases of Coronavirus in the last seven days which is right around our recent average of 134. Thankfully there were no new deaths to report.

The Township has all doses of all vaccines and we have clinics scheduled for ages 12 and up on Thursday December 2 from 3-6 and for ages 5-11 only on Wednesday December 1 and Friday December 3 from 4-6. Only the Pfizer vaccine is available to those under 18. Boosters are available for Pfizer and Moderna if you have had a second dose at least six months ago and J&J boosters are available after two months. Please make a reservation by calling 732 855 0600 extension 5004.

The percentages of our population with at least one dose are 86% for 12 and up, 87% for 18 and up and 99% for 65 and up. For two doses those numbers are 78%, 79% and 91%.

Kevin and Kompany is playing at Curtains tonight at 7.

Tomorrow is a busy day starting with the 5K Turkey Trot Run/Walk at 10 from Alvin P. Williams Park in Sewaren with registration starting at 8:30.

The annual Holiday Stroll on Main Street is also tomorrow from 4-6 with the tree lighting at 5:30 and a horse drawn carriage, ice rink and other amenities. The second annual Light Parade then kicks off at 6 with dozens of vehicles decorated for the holidays in a two-hour drive throughout Woodbridge. Check our web site to see when we will be going by your section of town.

The Colonia tree lighting is at the end of the parade in front of the Evergreen Senior Center so plan on it starting after 7:15.

Also on Saturday our Gallery on Main is open from 12-8, Soully Strings is playing at Curtains starting at 7 and the Woodbridge Elks has a good old-fashioned Keepin It Country Rodeo at 7 at their hall on Rahway Avenue.

Sunday is a blood drive by the JFK Class of 1978 at the Iselin Knights of Columbus on Route 27 starting at 8 and the Avenel Very Merry Holiday Lighting is at the Firehouse from 4-6 with Santa pictures, horse and carriage rides, a bounce house, ice sculptures and refreshments.

The Acacia Youth Center is now open from 3-6 daily for students from Woodbridge, Iselin and Avenel Middle Schools for after school activities and is located at 95 Port Reading Avenue in Woodbridge at the site of the former Hungarian Club.

So my dopey friend said to me “Hey Mac, I hope you are not going to tell any more Thanksgiving jokes because the holiday is over” and I said “Look, Dude, I can’t just quit cold turkey!!!”

Thank you. Stay safe and have a great weekend.
