Thank you so much, Suzanne.

I just want to make one correction. As of yesterday, March 6, 2011 the new FB page to use for all updates can be found here:

Please stop by and lend your support. If we're going to make this happen, it's going to take more than just a few people. Thanks.

Thank you Grace for all your hard work. I sent Senator Weinberg an email but haven't heard back yet.

Hi, All.

Just found out today that on Monday, Nov. 21, 2011 the NJ Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee will be hearing S2734 - Permits sale of home-baked goods under certain circumstances. The hearing will take place in Trenton at the State House Annex. I believe this is the address: State House Annex Welcome Center, 125 West State Street, Trenton, NJ 08608
(609) 777-2719. (I will double check on this.)

Please, please, please, if you can make it there, we need your support. I know it's short notice, but we knew it would be that way.

Either right outside the room, or right inside, there are slips of paper that you can fill out stating whether you're for or against the bill, briefly state why, and whether you want to testify (if you'd like to, they ask that you keep it brief - about 5 minutes). You can also bring written testimony (you'll need about 20 copies) and they need to be handed in before the hearing begins. It's scheduled for 1pm, but usually starts a bit late. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT to BE THERE and LET ME KNOW IF YOU'RE COMING. I'd like to see how many supporters will be there. Please e-mail me at SPFCakes@yahoo.com to let me know.

THIS IS IMPORTANT and we NEED to show them there are NUMEROUS supporters out there that want this bill passed!

Also, I found out today that Assemblyman Vincent Prieto (Domocrat) District 32, last week dropped/introduced the companion bill A4307!! I have calls in to my district's Assemblypeople asking them to co-sponsor this, please ask your district's Asm/Asw. to do the same!! (Remember to check to see who your representative is since redisctricting took place this past year).

- Grace

This is good news. I will be there to lend my support.

Looking at the response to this and fb where are all of the new jersey decorators. Supporting this can only help us. This is not a good time to sit back and wait on others.

Thanks, Sweetie!!

Thanks for spearheading this! I will have a better idea this weekend if I can physically attend but will do my best to lend support to the cause.

SweetcakesCT Posted 18 Nov 2011 , 9:08am

Way to go New Jersey!!!

Sugar_Plum_Fairy Posted 18 Nov 2011 , 9:21pm

I can't stress enough the importance of having people who support our bill present at the committee hearing on Monday. Please, please, please join us at the State House Annex, 125 West State St., Trenton, Committee Room 1, 1st Floor at 2pm.

Please let me know if you're going to show up by e-mailing me at SPFCakes@yahoo.com.

Thanks. I know I can count on all of you to help this bill through even though the end of the session is right around the corner (technically, early Jan., but more realistically in late Dec.).


Thanks, SweetCakesCT!
