The Livingston Homecoming Weekend is Just Around the Corner
October 5, 2010, Livingston, NJ – Livingston Homecoming Weekend, October 15-17 is just around the corner with proceeds to benefit educational initiatives of the Livingston Public Schools and the Youth of Livingston! The Homecoming Weekend is an opportunity to celebrate education and wellness and is made possible through the collaborative efforts and combined talents of many individuals and groups. School and township organizations as well as local businesses have come forward to create a weekend of fun and educational events.
As a preliminary to the weekend, Party City in East Hanover is offering a coupon for a 10% discount off of an entire purchase to the shopper with an additional 10% off of the same purchase to go back to Livingston Education Foundation (LEF) in support of Livingston Public Schools. The coupon is good from October 4-10. It is a win-win, lending support to the individual and education.
