2018 HomeFront Art Jam Pop-up Gallery, April 16th, Monday.
Once again, HomeFront is sponsoring an exhibit of professional and undiscovered artists in support of HomeFront’s ArtSpace.  The Exhibit will be located at 19 Hulfish Street in Princeton during April.  The store is open from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.  My thoughts are to go on Monday, April 16th around two in the afternoon and come back to my house for tea.  Several members went last year and had a wonderful time.  The art work is lively and there are all kinds of crafts.  And, we will be supporting a wonderful organization with whom we have shared interests.  I will be sending out more details later, but if you are interested, please let me know now.  Once again, we will probably carpool from my house.  There is a flyer with more information on the HomeFront webpage.- or (609) 430 – 1565 or (609) 577 –  6033.   Kathy Hutchins

Trips being planned: Club President Florence Begun presented Blooming Grove Village as a possibility that could be combined with a visit to the NJ State Police Headquarters and Museum in West Trenton. Another suggestion was Princeton Doll and Toy Museum now located in Hopewell, which currently has an exhibit featuring American Presidents; admission is five dollars. Other places: Princeton Neuroscience Institute and lunch at the Genomics Café; backstage tour of McCarter Theater; dates and times to be determined later.

We always need drivers and look forward to suggestions of trips from the membership. Please email Kathy Hutchins at or phone 609 430 1565 if you know of any interesting places to visit. Mary Ellen Parry has joined Kathy in finding outings.
