The Brick Township Historical Society will sponsor a Fall Festival on October 7 (rain date Oct. 8) from 10 am to 2 pm at the Havens Homestead Museum property, 521 Herbertsville Rd., Brick.  Besides the museum, the Lizzie Herbert House and the other buildings on the property will be open.  There will be face painting, pumpkin painting, games for children, a “White Elephant” table, a display of vintage farm equipment and classic cars.  The society will hold a bake sale including fall desserts inside the museum.  Admission is free and donations are graciously accepted.

The year will conclude with our Christmas celebration Friday, December  8 and Saturday, December 9.  The hours are 3 to 7 pm both days.  Please consider volunteering to decorate and help with this important fundraiser.
