HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Teen Night 2 sounds more like a horror movie sequel, but it was the follow-up event to Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club’s annual Teen Night.  Held on Sunday, August 27, the second event of the season saw a record number 152 teens attend the last hurrah of summer before school begins in September.

“We decided to try to hold another one promoting it as a back-to-school mixer and invited sixth and seventh graders,” said Jennifer Ober, president, Hasbrouck Heights Swim Club.

The club normally hosts one Teen Night a year which is open to kids 13 and over. The first night, held just one month earlier, drew 143 kids. Teen Night is open to both members and non-members for a $5 entry fee.

Inserra Supermarkets Inc. (ShopRite in Lodi) donated six 3-foot heroes, chips, pretzels, soda, water, ice pops, fruit, and paper products for the event. The swim club also provided pizza.
