Had a great time today at the Crescent Theatre on its official 100th anniversary. Mayor Little was on hand and Sarah Frey, Constituent Advocate for Congressman Gottheimer stopped by to drop off a Certificate of Recognition. Freeholder George Graham stopped by too. I was able to raise $130 for the Sussex-Wantage Historical Society selling commemorative envelopes. I have more for sale if anyone is interested. Let me know. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and took a tour and bought envelopes. Mario

Just a reminder that I will be at the Crescent Theatre tomorrow to chat about the theatre and I will have commemorative envelopes available for $5.00. Purchasing an envelope IS NOT a requirement to stop by and say hello so I hope to see you tomorrow....Mario
