On their first day back to school after Tuesday schedule was cancelled by snow teachers from the Freehold Borough Schools are set to take part in a holiday fundraiser.
Starting on Wednesday and continuing Thursday the teachers will be at the Barnes & Noble on Route 9 helping to wrap presents from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Freehold Borough Education Foundation.
The snow may have passed for at least a few days but there is nothing but cold weather in our immediate future. The high for today is expected to be around 32 degrees on a sunny day before a chilling low of 17 tonight.
