From this list of opportunities, the only one I’ll guarantee to attend is Saturday’s UFAR 5k to Combat Riverblindness. Registration starts at 8:30 and the starting gun goes off at 10. It’s OK to walk, and if you keep a steady pace it takes less than an hour. It’s going to be extra fun this year, with extra prizes! There’s no prettier route — starting and returning to the seminary. But there’s lots more going on this weekend.
In the Pink Fashion Show on Friday, October 5, 6 p.m. benefits the very worthy Breast Cancer Resource Center of Princeton.
Three back-to-back dance concerts and I can’t attend. (Does anyone want to write about them for this blog?) American Repertory Ballet premieres two works from the Joffrey repertoire on Saturday, October 6, at Raritan Valley College. Yes, it’s worth the drive. Outlet Dance Project offers new work at Grounds for Sculpture on Sunday, October 7, at 2 p.m. There is also another site-specific concert, this one at Trenton’s Cadwalader park on Saturday, October 6., cosponsored by Passage Theater.
Palmer Square has its Birthday Bash (75th) on Sunday afternoon, October 7. I have mixed feelings about this and am saying so here.
On a more serious note, the Troubling Issues series at Princeton United Methodist Church presents a forum on world economics, with economists native to three different countries. It’s Sunday, October 7, at 4 p.m.., at Nassau & Vandeventer.
Next week’s business opportunities:
NJEN offers “Where’s the Money?” at lunch on Wednesday, October 10, at the Marriott. It’s highly advisable to register ahead for this one, so your contact info is on the handouts.
Eileen’s Sinett’s day-long presentation training intensive, Speaking That Connects, is on Friday, October 12, and I can attest you will be a different and better speaker after that day.
