Jessica Tripucka Talks of Hoboken Girl Service

Jennifer Casson Tripucka spoke last week of Hoboken Girl and its subsidiary, Hoboken Girl Helps. The origins of Hoboken Girl, Ms. Tripucka said, lay in her writing a blog about life in Hoboken. Speaking at the Jersey City Rotary Club’s meeting on Thursday, Ms. Tripucka said the blog, which she created and initially operated alone five years ago, has evolved into a “media company” with two editors, and 20 contributors. The website, she said, is a “lifestyle website and brand” dedicated, she said, to “showcasing the best” of Hoboken, Jersey City and the surrounding area in Hudson County.

Artist Talks of Social Justice in Cameroon
Issa Nyaphaga, an artist from Cameroon, spoke last week of his experiences growing up in Cameroon and of his harassment and imprisonment by government officials because of his work.
 
Speaking at the second of the Jersey City Rotary’s two meetings on Thursday evening, Mr. Nyaphaga said that as a boy, he would walk four miles a day, four days a week, in order to attend school, and that he would walk 25 miles on weekends in order to visit his uncle. He was, he said, among the first members of his family to obtain an education.

Centennial History Project
Sometimes history is easy to find. You can pick up a book, do an internet search, or ask someone who knows.  Sometimes, a little more diligence is required to gather and preserve the knowledge that fades in the mists of time. The Centennial Committee is looking for help for the Centennial History Project.
