MAPLEWOOD, N.J., February 29, 2012 – Maplewood’s Springfield Avenue Partnership has awarded an iPad2 to Betty Cicenia, a longtime Maplewood resident and customer of the Park Wood Diner. The promotion was a feature of the Partnership’s recent Black History Month celebration. Sponsored by the Park Wood Diner (1958 Springfield Avenue) and Topf’s Maplewood Pharmacy (1885 Springfield Avenue), entrants visited SpringfieldAvenue.com, the Partnership’s website, filled out an online entry form and answered five Black History Month questions.
Cicenia learned about the contest through the owners of the Park Wood Diner, and uses her new iPad2 for everything from Facebook posts and internet browsing to reading her email. “I’ve never won anything before in my life so I was very surprised and pleased when the Partnership contacted me,” she stated.
A former teacher for 27 years in the local school system, Cicenia said Maplewood is a great place to live, with beautiful multi-cultural neighbors and neighborhoods that contribute to a community that offers convenience and great shopping and dining on Springfield Avenue.
