Proud to see a Lead New Jersey alum appointed to the Cannabis Regulatory Commission!
To my friends at LEAD NJ - Some of whom I know - and some of whom I have not yet met... LEAD NJ opened my eyes to this - and thus I want to share this with all of you. SIMSOC changed my life and interested me to the challenges of the BLUES. This story is for all the blues out there.... This AM I stopped at a drive through. My coffee was about $3.00. I told the 60 plus year old server to keep a $5.00 bill as change. She almost cried, said she would split would share it with her full staff. We all have so much... My daughter and I went back. We gave her more money ... and we gave her a box of Danconias Truffle Brownies for her and the staff. With Danconias Truffle Brownies - the funds generated from the brownies help the homeless who work for Danconia's. I get it. Covid sucks as did 2020. The woman at the drive through pretty much burst into tears - when we went through the second time and could not get over our teeny bit of generosity. My daughter and I have decided to go to every drive-through in town before X-mas so Danconias Truffle Brownies - get ready - because we are going to need a lot more brownies. And you can help the BLUES and the REDS in one fell swoop and help brighten someone's day. Here's to LEAD NJ and all of our blessings. Danconias Truffle Brownies

Hello Fellows! My name is Kris (Class of 2010) and I am founder and soon-to-be operator of a shared commercial kitchen space Garden State Kitchen located in Orange, NJ. Known as a "kitchen incubator", we will offer space for rent by the hour as well as other start-up support services. We just joined a small business competition called the Start Something Challenge. Will you consider voting for us by clicking the following link and selecting "Garden State Kitchen" and vote? I'd have a chance to win $10,000 to help people like you with your start-up culinary businesses. Nice to meet you and TIA!
