BOUND BROOK, NJ – A Family Movie Night will be held Friday, Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. at Smalley Elementary School,163 Cherry Ave. featuring a free showing of the hit movie “Trolls,” and a light dinner.
Participants will also learn about an initiative of Healthier Somerset titled “Building Bridges to Better Health – Bound Brook and South Brook.”

People will be asked to complete a survey, which will help to determine ways to make the communities healthier for individuals and families and ensure the towns are places where people of all ages can live, work, play and learn.
The initiative will also seek continued input from the community through discussion groups, surveys, and conversations with community leaders on topics such as housing, food, education, and transportation.
