SPECIAL EVENTS

STRESS MANAGEMENT

Wednesday, September 29th
7pm

Recognizing, reducing and relieving stress will be discussed by Dr. Jeanne Marron. Effective stress management helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun—and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.

 

Registration is required. The Zoom link will be sent the day before the program. 

CLINTON ROAD & OTHER STRANGE NJ SIGHTINGS

Thursday, September 30th
7pm

Get in the Halloween spirit! What could be spookier than the eerie sightings of ghosts, ghouls and even aliens along the Old Clinton Rd. Find out what other dark spirits are roaming the Garden State! Tuck the blankets under your feet, for added protection from the monster under the bed, of course, and join Victorian Vanities for some spine-chilling tales. Don't forget to lock the doors...

 

Registration is required. The Zoom link will be sent the day before the program.
