BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - It was a creative way to wind down the year.

The Berkeley Heights Recreation Department held its annual Winter Craft Day on Saturday, and families spent New Year's Eve morning showing their creative side.

"This is a day for families to work on something together and have fun doing it," said Director of Recreation Tom Barton. He and his assistant, Carolyn George, presided over the activities. "The recreation department also organizes other family oriented events during the course of the year. It's a great way to get the kids away from the computer for a little while and out of the house."

The recreation department supplied the art and craft items. Student volunteers from Columbia Middle School assisted guests with their art projects and helped serve snacks and refreshments.
