Programs & Services

The Recreation Department's community trips for Fall/Winter 2018-19 will all be posted to this website for the upcoming season.  We will publish a new Spring/Summer 2019 Program Guide that will be distributed in March of 2019.

This November we invite you to join us as we travel to Lancaster's Sight & Sound Theatre to experience their production of "Jesus".  We will also travel to Philadelphia in November to have a wonderful lunch at the Old City Tavern and enjoy the Christmas Village in LOVE Park.  This Christmas Village features over 80 vendors from around the world offering a large selection of genuine German ornaments, wood carvings & much more.  The Made in Philadelphia Market, located just across the street in Dilworth Plaza, features arts & crafts from over 40 local designers, crafters, artisans and confectioneries.  

Our December trips will include a terrific "Rock 'n' Roll" Christmas with the Mahoney Brothers at Hunterdon Hills Playhouse.  The Mahoney Brothers' latest impersonation production features some of the greatest singers of all time performing some of their famous Christmas recordings by masters of the craft.  We will also visit the always beautiful Longwood Gardens and enjoy their Yuletide Buffet in a private dining room.  This holiday season, Longwood Gardens pays homage to the Christmas Tree with an imaginative display featuring traditional favorites and inspiring new twists.  We will have time to explore the conservatory before our buffet luncheon and also have time afterwards to see some of the magic that the evening light displays offer.

We are still planning our March and April community trips and once we have this completes, information on the trips will be posted on the website and sent out via email through our Community Pass registration system.
