(August 18, 2008 Flemington, NJ) On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Roman Jewelers hosted a carnival fundraiser for the Flemington Fire Department at the Roman Jewelers Renaissance Plaza, Flemington location, where the parking lot was transformed into fairgrounds for the day.
Several hundred people attended to enjoy the music, inflatables, face painting, balloon animals as well as food provided by Matt’s Red Rooster Grill, Shop Rite and Baker’s Treat (all of Flemington). The Hunterdon Art Museum led bead making craft lessons, and several local vendors had booths to display their businesses. Inspiring Bodies hosted a hula hoop contest that rivaled the Olympics for enthusiasm.
One of the great attractions of the day was a display of fire fighting equipment by the Flemington Fire Department. Four fire trucks, including the famous ‘Old Betsy’, were on site throughout the day. Children and adults had a rare chance to explore the trucks, take pictures and talk to the firemen one on one about fire safety. The raising of the 100-foot-plus ladder on the ladder truck provided an exciting moment that captured the attention of everyone, children and adults alike.
The event raised $4,000 for the Flemington Fire Department. Roman Jewelers would like to thank the following local businesses and organizations who supported this event:
