A Theater Night Out

Members attended a performance of Agatha Christie’s play, Murder On The Orient Express, at the Paper Mill Theater in Millburn on Wednesday evening. We enjoyed cocktails and appetizers before curtain time at the Loft at the Carriage House Restaurant.

Old Stone Church Tour

We had a very informative and insightful tour of the Old Stone Church last Saturday thanks to Elder Peter Freeman, Vice President of the Consistory. Prior to the church’s construction, the church’s first ministers traveled on horseback to minister at members’ homes. The church’s front entrance and the first and oldest tombstones are made from local sandstone from the Saddle River. The non-denominational cemetery contains tombstones dating back to the early 1700s.

Fun Fact: The original bell from the church now resides between Bogert and Reynolds school!

Hospital Parent Survivor Bag Project

Members filled 22 Hospital Survivor Bags for parents of children with cancer and donated them to Emmanuel Cancer Foundation’s Center in Midland Park this month. Nestled in the bags with a note of encouragement were natural and fragrance free toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, comb, dry shampoo), a pad and pen for taking notes, granola bars and snacks, adult coloring book, colored pencils, and a Sudoku or crossword puzzle book. We hope to bring some comfort to parents who are faced with supporting their children as they endure the huge challenge of chldhood cancer.

Many thanks to Linda Miko who organized this community service project.
