New Brunswick, NJ – On Saturday, April 6, 2019 The Fellowship for Metlar House will be hosting their Spring Spotlight event to benefit the Metlar-Bodine House Museum. The event will take place in the Round Room at Neilson Dining Hall on Rutgers University’s Cook Campus in New Brunswick from 7 to 10 p.m. This location is different from last year’s location and is very near several Turnpike exits, providing easier access for those traveling to the event.

Piscataway and New Brunswick, home to two of Rutgers’ campuses, are at the center of historic New Jersey, in the area considered the “Crossroads of the American Revolution.” In an interview with www.NJnewjersey.com  reporters, June Sadlowski, the executive director of The Metlar-Bodine House Museum, mentions, “The first national celebration of the Fourth of July, ordered by General George Washington himself, took place near the location of the museum along the Raritan River in Piscataway and New Brunswick, and the 3rd reading of the Declaration of Independence took place at Christ Church in New Brunswick. Open for tours, the Metlar-Bodine House Museum, 1281 River Road, Piscataway, its original section dating to 1728, uses an extensive collection of Central NJ artifacts in describing the area’s history.

April 6th will be a fast-paced night with great food and entertainment! Leigh Keno, an accomplished antiques appraiser and well-known fine arts specialist, will be serving as the event’s guest auctioneer for the second year in a row. Keno is the founder of Keno Auctions and is the head of Keno Art Advisory.

The local band, Kinderhook, one of New Jersey’s best and most well-known bands, will be playing throughout the event. They began entertaining in the 1970s and 80s, gaining a large following and are still popular today. Recently they played at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park.

There will be a large selection of silent auction items and a live auction with Leigh Keno. Items include vacations, such as a condo in North Palm Beach, FL, artwork, fine china, gift certificates for local restaurants, museum memberships, theatre tickets, and sports game tickets and memorabilia.

Tickets for the event are on sale and can be purchased at CLICK LINK FOR TICKETS. Tickets reserved ahead of time are $100 per person and tickets bought at the door are $125 per person. Anyone under thirty-years old can pay $75 per ticket.

Proceeds from the spring benefit will go towards the Metlar-Bodine House’s Our Plan is Revolutionary Campaign. The campaign was created to raise funds in order to expand the State and National Historic Site, which will hold and showcase The Ross Hall Wall. This wall is an American artifact – a relic – that was recovered from George Washington’s headquarters in Piscataway where the general wrote the order for the 1st national celebration of Independence Day. Please click LINK for amazing video. The expansion and preservation of the wall will bring increased interest to the museum and in history – local and national.

CRANFORD--Owner and Master Plumber, Bill Schinestuhl, explained that  Chapman Bros. creates “a family oriented culture” between the company and its customers.

“We are not a big box store,” he said.

“We welcome every phone call -- every service call.”

As your first call for plumbing, heating and air conditioning needs, Chapman Bros. differentiates itself by cultivating ongoing customer collaborations and relationships.

Schinestuhl cited some popular jobs the company does, including, changing washers and dryers, rebuilding toilets, re-piping entire homes, renovating bathrooms, and changing boilers and HVAC systems, among others.

Chapman takes pride in every residential and commercial job that it completes, while work quality is highly consistent.

“We don't just go and get the job done,” said Schinestuhl.

“Our owners aren't sitting behind a desk - they're out there on the jobsite.”

The company puts all prices in writing before starting the job, getting approval prior to starting any work, Tom Swick, Owner/Master Plumber/Heating & A/C Expert, said.

“We don’t come in and advertise a very low price to get into your house” and then upsell later, noted Swick. “We only give you what’s needed.”

While most of Chapman’s customers are based in Westfield, Cranford, Clark, Kenilworth, Mountainside, Garwood, Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Berkeley Heights, Springfield, and Rahway, it serves many other Garden State towns as well.

Building a Reputation on Honest, Quality Work

“Whether your service request is residential or commercial in scope, our technicians will provide the best service and workmanship,” said Schinestuhl and Swick, adding that Chapman’s team of “true industry experts” cannot be matched.

Take chimney and vent stacks.

While they are necessary for furnaces, wood-burning stoves and drainage pipes, gases and exhaust from chimney or vent stacks can create harm if it escapes inside your home.

The solution is a Drain-Waste Vent Stack, which will prevent sewer gas build up inside your home, lead harmful gases outside of your home, and help maintain even air pressure within your plumbing system.

Chapman treats your house like it’s their house. 

“We can help make sure your system is up to code,” said Schinestuhl and Swick.

Contact Chapman today to make an appointment for a free estimate.

Chapman Bros. Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning was established in 1932, and is located at 36 North Avenue East, in Cranford, NJ.

Schinestuhl and Swick purchased the business and building that houses it about 18 years ago, from Wally and Buzzy Chapman.
