Flower Power Family Day
Last Sunday’s Flower Power Family Day was great fun!
Here’s an image from our parade (click on it for a larger version) – kids and parents had a great time decorating their wagons for the parade.
Thanks to all the volunteers who made it possible, and a special thank you to board member, Jennifer Basile. Thanks as well to the Puppeteers Cooperative, the Levins and select members of the East Hanover High School Marching Band. Many more images will follow shortly in our gallery.
If you have company in from out of town, perhaps they would enjoy a free walking tour of the Frelinghuysen Aboretum on Sunday, August 4 at 2pm. Click on the title for more information.
