Presidents Day: Madison Schools are closed Monday for the holiday.
Cut-a-Thon: Salvatore Minardi Salon, 8 Park Ave., will hold a fundraising cut-a-thon from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday to benefit the Union Beach Memorial School Education Foundation, part of Madison's borough-wide efforts to help the shore town after Superstorm Sandy. Salon services will be provided for women, men and children over 7 during the event. Personalized cuts begin at $40. To make an appointment: 973-443-4455
Budget Hearing: A public hearing on Madison's municipal budget is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday at Hartley Dodge Memorial. Preliminary numbers suggest the budget will come in with a tax increase under the state-mandated 2 percent tax levy cap, and without a need for furloughs, layoffs or service cuts, Councilman Ben Wolkowitz has said.
Madison Recreation Center: A fence blocking off an unused section of the Madison Recreation Center property with contaminated soil seems to be up, and a check from the state toward the purchase of the property has been received by the borough. Stay tuned for a story about this and stormwater runoff results that a former councilman says are good news.
'Once in a Blue Moon': The annual Madison Music Association 'Dessert and Jazz' fundraiser is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Madison High School. It will feature the Madison Junior School and Madison High School jazz ensembles. Dessert and entertainment by student musicians in the cafeteria will be followed by a jazz concert in the auditorium. Tickets are $15 per person for the entire evening of entertainment. Reservations are strongly recommended as this event has a history of selling out.
