Hilltop Happenings

Limited Spots Remain in Summit LEGO Build Event Set for Feb. 28

SUMMIT, NJ - Time to register and space are both in limited supply, as Summit residents and their families are set to dive into 70,000 LEGOs, enjoying plastic brick nirvana as they recreate some of the Hilltop City's venerable and memorable structures.

The 11th Annual Architectural Workshop, benefiting the Summit Historical Society, will feature 50 family teams -- each selecting a photo of a Summit landmark -- then replicating or “building” the structure out of the colorful, interlocking plastic bricks supplied.
The spectacle will take place February 28, from 2 - 4 p.m., at the Summit Elks Lodge, with all creations placed on a 30- by 20-foot scale map of downtown Summit, which includes all of the Hilltop City's streets and dozens of significant buildings.

The event provides a fun way to teach children, and all members of their families, about the heritage of buildings in Summit. Each child will be provided with a take-home map which includes historical descriptions of the buildings, so they can locate the actual landmark buildings in person. Photos of the LEGO creations will be available to the participating families via Snapfish.

Registration must be done in person at Coldwell Banker Summit Office, located at 401 Springfield Avenue. The registration fee, a 100% donation, is a minimum contribution of $35 per family, payable by cash or check to the Summit Historical Society.  
Payment is required at the time of registration in order to secure a spot at the event, which is limited to the first 50 families. Children must accompany their parents for the workshop, and spectators are invited to join the fun at no charge.

This 2016 Workshop is sponsored by The Summit Elks Lodge and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Summit Office, and will be presented by Stephen W. Schwartz, of SWS Architects of Livingston.
For more information, call 908-522-1800.
The Summit Elks Lodge is located at 40 Maple Street.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
