Participant families in the Bentley program self-state their goals and we help them try to achieve them by offering specific classes. Our third such class is coming up. On November 12 and 19, our participant families will be attending a Work, Life and Time Management class “Make Every Minute Count” and learning about important work/life skills. We believe that being a life-long learner, always learning new and up-to-date information can truly lead to greater possibilities and opportunities.
Our facilitator leading the class is Lorette Pruden. Lorette owns Team Nimbus NJ, a small business development and coaching practice, is a founder and board member of the Montgomery Business Association, Past-president of the National Speakers Association NJ chapter and has managed the Montgomery Friends of Open Space Farmers Market for the last twelve years. She served on several boards of not-for-profit and arts organizations as well.
Lorette has a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University and spent a rewarding career at Mobil before the Exxon buyout several years ago.
One of the Formerly Corporate™ herself, her latest book by that title talks about the mindset shifts required for success in a different environment. Whether you are looking for another job, starting your own business, or managing a household and family, many of the issues of time management are similar.
We thank Pastor Tony and Montgomery United Methodist Church for being the host location for the classes. We thank Lorette Pruden for being our facilitator and look so forward to the classes. Again, we certainly are grateful for the Bentley community.

We enjoyed sharing all about Bentley with the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Rotary yesterday. Thank you for the opportunity to share with such a great group who serve the community with such big hearts!
An employee volunteer helping hands team came out this week to help us at the farm. A huge thank you to the volunteers who did such incredible work picking all kinds of tomatoes and gathering corn. Thank you Bristol Myers-Squibb and our generous provider farm, Norz Hill. We certainly are grateful!
So many volunteer employee teams from Bloomberg came out to the farm to help us this year since the spring to assist and help perform so many tasks at our generous provider farm, Norz Hill. The hard working crews helped us harvest a full array of vegetables such as cucumbers, peppers, beans, various types of squash, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes and pumpkins. They helped stake and string tomatoes and washed, dried and packed them. They cut corn stalks, that were gathered and tied. Each and every hard working team is such a pleasure to work with and each accomplished so much! Working together for the greater good with the Bentley community of participant volunteers and community volunteers has been a delight, where we help and serve one another. Thank you to Bloomberg, Norz Hill Farm and our Bentley volunteers who all worked together and certainly made a huge, positive difference and impact. MORE PICTURES ON PHOTO PAGE.
