Join the Lawnside Historical Society Saturday, February 1, 2020 on a bus outing to see “Lawnside,” a music-filled production about our historic town and its families by Kenneth and Charlotte Brown of United Youth of New Jersey at the Liberty Center in Elizabeth, New Jersey.

A comfortable coach will leave the borough at 12:30 p.m. The play starts at 2 p.m. where Lawnside showgoers will enjoy special seating. The show will be followed by a four-course dinner at the Cranbury Inn, a stop on the Underground Railroad.
