'Morristown Moving Forward,' Gravestone Art This Week
Here's a look at what's ahead this week, including a busy Wednesday.
It looks like Wednesday is the day this week to make sure you have that dance card empty. Three of the five highlighted events this week are on Wednesday. Holy moley!
- Government Meeting Roundup: There are a number of government meetings our politically-conscious neighbors will want to check out this week. In Morristown, Town Council meets for its regular bi-weekly meeting on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.; the Planning Board also meets this week, on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. In Morris Township, an open space meeting is set for Thursday at 7 p.m. In Morris Plains, the Zoning Board of Adjustment meets Monday at 7:30 p.m.
- Sounds Like a Cartoon Series from the 1980s: While it may sound like a cartoon series from the 1980s, "Swamptails" is actually an event organized by The Great Swamp Watershed Association and hosted by George & Martha's American Grille on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. Want to get together with other like-minded folks, including Professor Ken Miller from the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University? Head there with $20 for "all the hors d’ouevres you can eat, two cocktails from the bar, a chance at some awesome door prizes, and an opportunity to excel at our Great Swamptails Pub Quiz."
- If You're Not Looking to Tie One on With the Environmental Set: There is another event happening starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The Morristown Master Plan Open House meeting will be held at Hyatt Morristown. There, the town will officially launch "Morristown Moving Forward," a Planning Division campaign to create a new Land Use and Circulation Plan. Your participation is encouraged (and, it's close to G&M's. So, heck, attend both!)
- And, If Neither of Those Strike Your Fancy: Man, there's more happening Wednesday night in Morristown? The place to be. Head over to the Morristown & Morris Township Library at 7 p.m., for a presentation on gravestone art and symbolism. The program is free and refreshments will be served.
- There is Stuff to do on Other Days: Such as Thursday at 12:15 p.m., when the Morristown United Methodist Church hosts its weekly "Music at Noon" series. This week is "A Musical Heritage," featuring violinist Nancie Lederer, pianist Pauline Lederer, cellist Marnie Kaller and pianist Rick Kaller.
