Whether you are looking to meet one of your sports icons or just help a good cause there is plenty to do in Freehold today.
At iPlay America former New York Giants linebacker Harry Carson will be signing copies of his books tonight at 6:30. Carson, who retired 25 years ago, will be at City Square Bar and Grille until 8:30 signing copies of his books “1986 Championship Game Playbook” and “Captain for Life.”

The National Weather Service is calling for a mostly sunny day today with a high near 54 expected during the day. When the sun sets the temperature is expected to drop dramatically with a low of 33 expected. The weather will be so cold that there could be patchy frost across our area after 4 a.m.
For those not sure what to have for lunch today the fact that it is National Bologna Day could help sway your final decision. It is also United Nations Day to celebrate the multinational organization located just across the Hudson River.
It was on this date in 1945 that the United Nations charter officially took effect. President Abraham Lincoln sent the first transcontinental telegraph to California on this date in 1861. The George Washington Bridge was dedicated in 1931.
