Nutley Historical Society – Upcoming Events:
Sunday, May 28th – 10:00 am to 12:00 pm – A Walk In The Park – Mayor Dr.Joseph P. Scarpelli and the Board of Commissions announce plans for Memorial Day weekend beginning with “A Walk in the Park,” hosted by Nutley Museum Director, John Simko. The walking tourwill kick off at 10:00 am on Sunday, May 28, 2017, at the Mud Hole (near the intersection of Passaic and Vreeland Avenues) and will travel along the Third River. Mr. Simko will talk about the river’s role in Nutley history as a source for early industry, as an inspiration for world-class artists, as a symbol of civic pride, as an important boundary marker, and as a fitting memorial to our war veterans. The tour will visit the sites of three former mills as well as tour the pre-Revolutionary Van Giesen homestead. Find out why the Third River splits in two, learn about the beginnings of our hundred-year-old Carnegie Library and even older Town Hall, and walk through one of Nutley’s oldest cemeteries. The tour concludes at noon inside an 1875 brick schoolhouse (now the Nutley Historical Society and Museum) where light refreshments will be served. The museum will be open for browsing, and tour-related objects from our archives will be on display in our main hall. “A Walk in the Park” is free, but is limited to 30 people and requires pre-registration. To register for the tour send an email to Johnsimko1014@gmail.com or call 973-752-8984 and leave a message. Include your name, number of people in your party, your phone number and e-mail address.

Nutley Family Service Bureau – Upcoming Programs & Workshops:
Thursday, June 1, 15 – 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm – The Men’s Connection – A Group for Men in the Middle – The issues impacting men in the established years of their lives may be overwhelming: balancing work, marriage, family, children, aging parents, and additional pressures. There are too many responsibilities with too few resources and little support. Men easily can lose the essence of who they are as males and individuals. Men are stronger than they may think, and do not have to “go it” alone. They can benefit by both raising self-awareness and making common connections with others. Come join us for this 8-week group for men, age 30-60, that will be led by Joe Armentano, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist at NFSB. NFSB Annex, 169 Chestnut Street, Nutley, NJ 07110.
