As a wonderful fund-raiser for our Section, we’ll be sponsoring a gala Night at the Museum—the Morris Museum—the evening of Saturday, Nov. 5, beginning at 7 p.m. The museum is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road, in Morristown.
This elegant event—a scavenger hunt with a cultural twist—is open to members, spouses, significant others, prospective members, and friends of the Section. We’ll have a scrumptious dessert & coffee reception, plus a hunt for hidden treasures throughout the museum. You’ll discover and learn about the history of some of the museum’s most treasured pieces.
