Councilman Zipprich as Harvey Milk & Holiday Open House

It's what's going on in the Red Bank-Shrewsbury area on Thursday.



Happy Thursday, friends and fans!

Well, once again, the weekend is almost here, the weather is a tiny bit warmer and there's a lot going on leading up to the holidays.

Around the towns …

• There's a Holiday Open House going on throughout Red Bank tonight from 6 to 9 p.m.

Stores will be open and throughout there will be while-you're-shopping refreshments, sales, special offers, carolers and live music in the streets and pictures with Santa at the Galleria.

• And at the Red Bank Public Library a performance highlighting notable history-making people played by area actors and officials.
Here's an excerpt from the event's flier:

"Notable historian Howard Zinn’s book “The Peoples History of the United States,” is the inspiration behind The People Speak, when it comes to Life at the Red Bank Public Library on Dec. 12, from 6 –8:30 p.m.

"Come hear the dramatic readings of those voices in history that made a difference. Red Bank Councilman Ed Zipprich salutes Harvey Milk, one of the first openly gay elected officials. Two River Theater Artistic Director John Dias salutes the Nobel Prize winning American playwright Eugene O’Neill. Actress Lorraine Stone is the voice of Sojourner Truth.

"And you’ll hear from human rights activist T. Thomas Fortune. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latino woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, a contemporary voice of the time, will be brought to life by community member, Isabel Lopez. Discussion to follow the performance."

If you can think of anything we've missed, let us know.

Weather, sun, moon and tides …
