South Orange to Welcome Newcomers at Event This Sunday at the Library

September 19, 2013 at 6:02 PM

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – New and recent residents of South Orange are invited to this year’s newcomers event at the South Orange Public Library on Sunday, Sept. 22 from 1 - 3:30 p.m.  

Co-sponsored by The South Orange Board of Trustees and The Community Relations Committee (the CRC), “Welcome to South Orange Day” helps introduce new residents to many aspects of life in the Village.  Learn how to interact with community leaders and various departments and have some fun at the same time.

There will be food, music and children’s activities. Get a handy resource guide, meet past Villagers of the Month, record your story for the Library’s South Orange Wikipedia project and meet reps from local volunteer organizations.

A townwide community scavenger hunt has been organized by the Village, local businesses, and Seton Hall University as a way for you and your family to get to know your new hometown. For more information email the CRC: crc@southorange.org or call Nancy at 973-477-7914.
