Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation Festival 2013 (25th Anniversary)
The reenactment of the Battle of Monmouth is an annual event at the park in late June. Pass pacing sentries, see enlisted men clean their weapons, and watch the women of the army cook, mend, and wash. You may encounter a drum major drilling his musicians or the courtmartial of a rebel. At the parade ground, watch soldiers drill or artillerists fire their cannon. Keep an eye on your children, or the recruiting sergeant may have them drilling with wooden muskets.

Most youth with special health care needs (YSHCN) are not receiving needed transition preparation. Although most providers are encouraging YSHCN to assume responsibility for their own health, far fewer are discussing transfer to an adult provider and insurance continuity.

“Talk. They Hear You.” a new national public service announcement (PSA) campaign that empowers parents to talk to children as young as nine years old about the dangers of underage drinking was launched today by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The kickoff occurred in conjunction with SAMHSA’s 2013 National Prevention Week—an annual health observance dedicated to increasing awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues.
