GAAMC members are a frugal but generous lot, also sensitive to environmental issues. We have created a festive way of sharing and caring. We ask members and guests to bring gently used items that still have plenty of use left in them, and drop them off as they head into our weekly discussion group Open Talk. Volunteers will set up the Terrace Room like a giant flea market. All items are priced the same: $0.00. Any items that remain after the event will be donated to local charities. For example, Denville Animal Shelter has agreed to take any leftover towels, sheets, blankets, etc. Whatever they cannot immediately use, they will share with other shelters throughout Morris County. Last year's donations included microwaves, coffee makers, dinnerware, filled toolboxes, clothing, books, electronics, luggage, games, music and movies, brick-a-brack of all sorts.
Doors will open at 6:30. Open Talk will take place in the Library from 7:00 - 8:00. Freecycle Frenzy will be held in the Terrace Room from 8:00 - 9:30.
The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is excited to announce the launch of a new community outreach program for this summer. The Shrewd Mechanicals will bring an hour-long presentation to libraries, retirement communities, community centers, long-term care facilities, museums, and other performing venues throughout the state. The Shrewd Mechanicals' inaugural performance will be Shakespeare Gumbo, a stirring collection of moments and music from Shakespeare's great canon of plays, as well as selections from some of the profound, witty, and light-hearted works his plays have inspired over the centuries. This 60-minute presentation has something for every audience. Come and see this taut four-member ensemble bring the joy, wit, poetry, and music of the world's greatest playwright to life.
Admission: $10 for all members and guests
Doors will open at 6:30 PM, and we will screen the film "Latter Days" beginning at 7:00 PM, shown with closed captions for the deaf and hard of hearing. Following the film, Gordon will facilitate a discussion.
Latter Days is a 2003 American romantic comedy-drama film about a gay relationship between a closeted Mormon missionary and his openly gay neighbor. The film was written and directed by C. Jay Cox and stars Steve Sandvoss as the missionary, Aaron, and Wes Ramsey as the neighbor, Christian. Joseph Gordon-Levitt appears as Elder Ryder, and Rebekah Johnson as Julie Taylor. Mary Kay Place, Erik Palladino, Amber Benson, and Jacqueline Bisset have supporting roles.
