A Musical Tribute to Asia Minor @ Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
Oct 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

A cultural event hosted by Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church Westfield NJ on October 18 at 7PM – A musical tribute to Asia Minor.

The long history of Asia Minor began as in the prehistoric years settlements from the islands gravitated across the Aegean to the northern and eastern shores of Asia Minor clearly establishing a Greek presence which continued until 1922 when with the destruction of Smyrna ended this centuries-old civilization. This Musical Tribute will embody the history and the events which led up to this sad history as well as how music has assisted in keeping alive the memories. Another way of saying “Never Forget!”

4 Centuries In A Weekend @ Crane-Phillips House Museum | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

The Cranford Historical Society’s Crane-Phillips House Museum at 124 North Union Avenue will once again participate in Union County’s Annual “Four Centuries in a Weekend.” The museum will be open on Saturday, October 19th from 10:00am to 5:00pm and on Sunday, October 20th from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. This year’s theme is “Saving The Past and Moving Forward to Technology of the Present.”

The Crane-Phillips House Museum, a Victorian Cottage, modest home of the 1870’s, shows what life was like without plumbing or electricity. During Four Centuries in a Weekend, visitors will see how implements in the kitchen and throughout the house have evolved through technology and pictures will be at each implement showing the technology of today. All of the inventions in the past are hands on to all who would like to try them to see what it was like to do household chores, etc. Also, Trustees and Volunteers will be on hand to give a tour of each room in the unique living museum which is on the National and State Registry.

Materials for the weekend tour are available from the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs Office and will be at all sites. The materials include a booklet featuring photos and info about each site with a map showing the locations. For more info, please call the Union County Division of Cultural and Heritage Affairs at 908-558-2550 or visit http://ucnj.org/parks-recreation/cultural-heritage-affairs/historic-sites-map/

Cranford CROP Walk 2019 @ Cranford United Methodist Church
Oct 20 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Cranford CROP Walk 2019 @ Cranford United Methodist Church | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

Cranford’s CROP Walk begins at CUMC on Oct 20 @ 1:45PM! Ask your house of worship how to support your walkers (or to walk!).

Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen.

For nearly half a century, CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.

Stand with neighbors in your community who rely on food assistance programs. Partner with parents worldwide as they ensure a bright future for their children. Support those struggling in the face of grinding poverty and open up new doors of opportunity for them.

Tens of thousands of CROP Hunger Walkers are committed to building a hunger-free world. Join the movement!
