Fire Safety for Older Adults: Wednesday, February 28, 10:00am at HV Senior Center, 395 Reading Street, and Pennington.

Things are changing every day; make sure you are up to speed on the new rules and regulations. This committee is the first of its kind in the state of New Jersey and one in which Randi is a member of and feels passionate about.

Senior Luncheon: Wednesday, February 28th, 12:15pm at Hopewell Valley Central High School Performing Arts Center, 259 Pennington Titusville Road, Pennington.  Join us for lunch and a show by the high school students.  Registration is REQUIRED, space is LIMITED! Please call Liz, 609-537-0257. The 2018 CHS Winter Musical is The Drowsy Chaperone.  With the house lights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperone begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.
