Regal's paw-rade raises more than $2,000 for the Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter.
Canines posing as sea creatures, sports figures and even Tinkerbell drew peals of laughter and dozens of smiles at the third annual Dog Paw-rade in Livingston. A group of 22 dogs strutted their stuff in Halloween attire around the Regal Bank parking lot, competing for trophies and ribbons. The fundraising event and raffle help generate more than $2,000 for the Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, said organizer Christina Slater, who also is the Regal Bank branch manager.

Sunday’s Halloween party for pets will benefit homeless animals.
Bring your camera and get ready for plenty of “Awwww!” moments as Regal Bank’s 3rd Annual “Howl-Ling Pawrade” takes place on Sunday, Oct. 2, from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in the “barking” lot behind its branch on Route 10 at 570 W. Mount Pleasant Ave. Christina Slater, town resident and branch manager of Regal Bank’s Route 10 location, explained that after seeing this event in Florham Park, she was amazed to see how many dog owners brought their pooches in costume and how the parade brought the community together. When she began working at Regal Bank, she organized the “Pawrade” with one twist: it had to benefit homeless animals. The event now serves as a fundraiser for the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter, which will also have dogs on site …

Loans to promote job growth in Essex, Hudson counties.
Regal Bank may be headquartered on Mount Pleasant Avenue, but it considers itself Main Street. Sponsor of summer concerts on the Oval, the bank is among the leaders in town giving back to the community. Now with an extra $7 million from the U.S. Treasury, Regal plans to help small businesses create new jobs. Small businesses are seen as crucial to job growth by the Obama administration, creating two out of every three new jobs. Last week, the Livingston-based bank was told it would receive the money as part of the next wave of funding provided through the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF). Regal Bank received $7 million as part of the $30 billion effort to encourage lending to small businesses by providing capital to qualified community …

The summer concerts in the Gazebo are one reason I love living in Livingston.
Editor's Note: The summer concert series continues 7 p.m. Sunday, July 24, with Beatlemania, a Beatles tribute band. The concerts are held in the Gazebo in Memorial Park on the Oval, off of South Livingston Avenue. The series is sponsored by Regal Bank. (In case of rain, the shows are moved to the auditorium in Livingston High School). I love these Sunday night tribute concerts at the Oval. Last week it was the Parrot Street Band (showcasing the work of Jimmy Buffett) and this week showcased the B Street Band (performing the music of Bruce Springsteen). As I sat at each, I wondered how many people were actually there for the music. I wasn’t. I’m not a Buffett fan and although it’s almost sacrilegious to be from Jersey and not love The Boss…
