Rosters are already in for the fall season. East Hanover Recreation Director Linda Lurz was surprised by the large turn out in the spring. “ It has been awhile since there was bocce at Lurker Park, we were unsure of how it would be received” Lurz said. “ We had 75 registrations before play began and more were added, we decided to do a spring season because of the huge response”

Starting in September, on any given Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday night, the music will be playing, the families will be gathering and East Hanover Bocce will continue.
