Join Commissioner Kelly and the Department of Public Affairs and Health for a Pi Day Celebration on March 19

Commissioner John V. Kelly and The Department of Public Affairs and Health invite you to join in on the Pi Day celebration!

Pi Day is an annual, international celebration of the mathematical sign Pi. Although the first calculation of π was done by Archimedes of Syracuse (287–212 BC), one of the greatest mathematicians of the ancient world, physicist Larry Shaw founded the annual celebration in 1988. March 14 was selected because the numerical date (3.14) represents the first three digits of pi, which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and it also happens to be Albert Einstein's birthday.

We invite all residents to join us on Sunday, March 19th at the Nutley Department of Public Affairs and Health,149 Chestnut Street for a 3.14mile walk.  The event will kick off at 10:30am and follow a designated route through the parks, ending back at 149 Chestnut Street where participants will be treated to assorted Pi(es).    If you would like to participate, please click on the link to register.

Also, please find the attached links to websites that offer fun ideas and activities for all of you number lovers, looking to celebrate this infinite decimal!
