Hello and welcome back to the workweek! With the holidays now completely in our rearview mirror, let us examine what's to come during our first full week back in the swing of things.
- Government Meetings All Over the Place: In Morristown, its reorganization meeting is short since there were no council elections in 2012. If you're interested, head to Town Hall at 7 p.m. Tuesday for that, which precedes their regular council meeting at 7:30 p.m. A Zoning Board reorg meeting follows at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday; the next Redevelopment Meeting is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday; in Morris Township, the Planning Board meets at 7:30 p.m. on Monday; in Morris Plains, their borough council holds its reorganization meeting on Monday at 7 p.m.
- Walk With Patch's 'Person of the Year:' Sure, you could have walked with her in weeks past. But, " she likely will be in such demand due to her newfound celebrity you'll have to schedule time with her, if you're lucky enough that she can pencil you in. This way, you can just show up either on Tuesday morning or at noon on Thursday.
- Maribyrd Marches On: The open-mic night has been going on for years already. But, now that Hennessey's has closed, Maribyrd has moved the weekly Wednesday night event just down the street to Pete's Restaurant and Pub. Sign up goes out at 8:30 p.m.
- Music at Noon: Fancy a little French Horn and Cello recital during your lunch break on Thursday? Then head over to Morristown United Methodist Church at noon, where coincidentally that is exactly what their weekly music series will offer this week.
- Looking for a Little Hope? Later in the day Thursday, at 7 p.m., former township resident and New York Times writer Tina Kelley will talk about her new co-authored book, "Almost Home: Helping Kids Move from Homelessness to Hope," which chronicles six stories of children, now young-adults, who overcame incredible odds. The free talk will be held at the Morristown and Morris Township Library.
