To Mark 25th Anniversary
SCOTCH PLAINS — The Scotch Plains-Fanwood Chapter of UNICO National will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a dinner dance on Saturday, April 24, at the Italian-American Hall in Scotch Plains.
As part of the largest ItalianAmerican service organization in the United States, the chapter has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships and more than $200,000 to local charitable causes and sponsored events.
These funds have been raised through the efforts of many volunteers at the annual four-day Labor Day Italian Festival, held in conjunction with St. Bartholomew the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Scotch Plains.
The chapter has also promoted Italian culture and heritage through shows at the former Garden State Art Center in Holmdel, helped fund research for Cooley’s Anemia, supported mental health programs, provided holiday food baskets, and sponsored Christmas and Easter programs for children with Down’s Syndrome from McAuley School in Watchung.
UNICO members have also participated in the Ayuda Toy Drive at the former Rahway State Prison, donated supplies for earthquake victims in Italy, sponsored Brian Piccolo sports programs and funded Italian studies at Seton Hall University in South Orange, among other programs.
The chapter recently spearheaded a drive with the local Italian-American Club and the Knights of Columbus Council No. 5730 to erect a permanent monument commemorating the founding of America by Christopher Columbus.
A recent new fundraiser is a golf outing with the net proceeds earmarked for a specific charity or cause. The national organization and chapters now accept women as members.
The anniversary celebration will begin with a cocktail hour at 7 p.m., with dinner, dancing, an open bar
and program following at 8 p.m. Black tie is optional. Dinner choices are prime rib, breast of capon cordon bleu, or fillet florentine. Table accommodations are also available.

Workshop Aimed at Helping Youth Resist Tobacco Ads
WESTFIELD — Bonnie Vierthaler, an artist, educator and founder of The BADvertising Institute, will present “Immunizing Our Kids Against Tobacco Ads” on Monday, March 29, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Union County (NCADD) headquarters, 300 North Avenue in Westfield.
Parents, community leaders, student assistance counselors, Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) officers, scout leaders, art teachers, nurses and interested residents are invited to attend the program to learn about BADvertising concepts and how they can use this program in their own homes, schools and communities.
The program will focus on the potential effects of tobacco industry advertisements on teenagers and preteens. Smoking among members of these age brackets is on the rise, according to organizers of the event.
“Information is not enough to change behavior,” Ms. Vierthaler said. “Just observe the effectiveness of the persuasive techniques used by the tobacco companies in manipulating the desires of our young people.”
Ms. Vierthaler has developed a program for “immunizing” young people against the tobacco companies’ tactics.
Since 1986 she has been doctoring tobacco advertisements by pasting images from medical journals highlighting the dangers of smoking over the promotional text of the ads and encouraging children to do the same.
“There’s no preaching or prohibition,” she said. “Kids discover for themselves how they are being duped and manipulated by the tobacco industry.”
BADvertising’s techniques were applauded by tobacco control professionals internationally at the World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Beijing, China last summer, the program organizers revealed.
This workshop is being sponsored by the Westfield Municipal Alliance/ PANDA in conjunction with the Cen
ter for Religion, Ethics and Social Policy, an affiliate of Cornell University, and is funded by New Jersey ASSIST.
For more information about the workshop, please call (908) 789-4040.

To register or for more information, please call Lissa Parsonnet, Director of Psychosocial Support Programs, at (973) 322-8414.
Westfield Rescue Squad Launches 1999 Fund Drive
WESTFIELD — The Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad, which recently launched its 1999 fund drive, is asking residents of Westfield to support the squad with a donation of money or their time.
Squad Vice President Grace Kowalski is in charge of the fund drive this year. “I wanted to help the community and to teach others about first aid,” explained Mrs. Kowalski
of her decision to join the squad 19 years ago.
Since then, she has become a cardiopulmonary resuscitation instructor and has helped many residents of Westfield in times of illness or injury.
According to Mrs. Kowalski, “Each year the cost to train our members, stock our first aid supplies and maintain our three ambulances rises.” Every March, the squad begins its yearly fund drive by sending a letter to each residence and business in Westfield asking for a donation.
The squad relies on annual donations from the townspeople in order to provide volunteer service to the community.
“In addition to requiring money to provide emergency services to the town, we are actively looking for members to be trained either as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) or dispatchers,” Mrs. Kowalski continued.
“EMTs are only required to serve four hours a week, and dispatchers are only required to serve two hours a week,” she revealed.
Mrs. Kowalski and her husband, who have two children, are both squad volunteers. She said that in addition to helping people, membership on the squad also offers the opportunity to make new friendships.
The Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad has expressed its appreciation to townspeople in advance for their donations. Residents interested in volunteering may stop by the squad building at 335 Watterson Street, off the South Avenue traffic circle, to pick up a membership packet.
The Westfield squad is an all-volunteer organization serving the community of Westfield, and one of the few resident squads in the state of New Jersey.
Tax deductible contributions may be made to: The Westfield Volunteer Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 356, Westfield, 07091-1356. For all emergency service, please call 911.
