Entering Stage 2: Relaxing Restrictions

"Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." - Mattie Stepanek (1990-2004), American poet, peace advocate and motivational speaker

We choose to focus on the positive in this venue, and look forward to developments that bring us together - like restaurants offering outdoor dining as of June 15, followed by the opening of barbershops/salons, pools and daycamps! To keep up with the latest gradual lifting of restrictions in New Jersey, click here.

Pictured above is the outdoor dining area set up at Rock Creek Tavern in Harmony Township. Read on for additional outdoor dining options. Happy heat wave, and Happy Wanderings!
