Knock on Wood! Starting January 12, 2023

"Superstition is foolish, childish, primitive, and irrational-but how much does it cost you to knock on wood?" - Judith Viorst, American writer

We’re putting out an edition of Wanderings that has some good, wholesome fun like arts, crafts, music, board games and oh yes, Blairstown’s own Friday the 13th antics. Roy’s Hall still has tickets available for the theater viewing of the original (1980) Friday the 13th film, while Blairstown Diner, decorated above, welcomes South Jersey Jason.

And Centenary Stage Co. heats things up with its January Thaw Music Festival!

So knock wood, and Happy Wanderings!
