Welcome to Livingston Picnic to be Held for New and Future Residents


LIVINGSTON, NJ — New Livingston residents and those considering a move to town will learn about what Livingston has to offer at the township’s annual “Welcome to Livingston Picnic” on Monday, Sept. 12 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The event will be held rain or shine at the Livingston Senior/Community Center, 204 Hillside Avenue, lower level indoors. The Mayor and Township Council, Educators from Livingston Public Schools, and a variety of community groups will be on hand to greet guests and answer any questions they might have.

“[The event] is important so that people know what’s available to them to help them get acclimated and involved in the town,” said Schmidt, the new Human Services Coordinator. “It’s been nice for me as a new employee to learn about all of the organizations, so I can see why it’s such a good event for new residents.”
