Town Clock CDC Updates

We have a full office! At times there are four of us working on various things simultaneously. This week (January 27th) Marlana was using Susan’s laptop. Lauren came in with her laptop, and Susan and Sarah Beth, our new intern from Rutgers, were working on the desktop. We sent out a press release to a slew of news agencies, posted to the New Brunswick Patch our newest fundraising event, signed up for a Twitter account (DinaVanB – in case you have Twitter), and started another grant application.

We are thrilled because:

  • We’ve received several larger donations!!
  • We’ve another online article through’s reporter, Brian Amaral.
  • We’ve been able to submit a long report and request to the National Advisory Council for Historic Preservation.

A fundraiser is planned for March 2nd at the George Street Ale House. The Ale House is offering us a special price per person, so that we can really keep the cost of tickets low. Also, the New Brunswick Jazz Project is providing a Jazz group to us at no cost. It will be a great time on a cold Sunday afternoon.

This is a big month (February) for us, because several grant applications are being reviewed and finalized. By the end of the month we hope to know about whether or not construction will begin in April/May 2014.

About Susan Kramer-Mills

Susan Kramer-Mills' journey as a pastor has led her to a variety of places. Before attending McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago she was a Volunteer-in-Mission for two years West Berlin, Germany. After returning to the United States and graduating from seminary, she returned with her husband Hartmut to Germany. From 1990 to 1992 she was campus chaplain and registrar at Naumburg Seminary in former East Germany. With the closing of the seminary she assumed the pastorate for the yoked congregations of Stoessen, Goerschen and Rathewitz in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. At the same time she taught Religious Instruction at two public elementary schools until 1998. During this time she was assigned six additional congregations to the original three. In 1998, she received a call as Associate Pastor to Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Brunswick, New Jersey. She served in that position until 2000, when she and her husband accepted a call as co-pastors to First Reformed Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since April 1, 2004, Rev. Kramer-Mills has also been working part-time as Classis Minister to the Classis of New Brunswick.
