Grandparent's Day Out

December 01, 2016

            It’s that time of year again, beginning November 1st the Recreation Department will be accepting reservations for this year’s Grandparent’s Day Out. The free event offers family portraits, raffles, lunch and a choice of one of three movies. The day begins at 10:30am at the Community Center on Wednesday, December 28th (snow date Thursday, December 29th).

            The event is co-sponsored by the Recreation Department and the Gardens at Monroe Healthcare and Rehabilitation on Applegarth Road whose support and generosity are vital to the success of Grandparent’s Day. It has become an annual tradition, which has grown each year and is a fantastic way to usher in the New Year as it is held during the holiday break from school, when many of us gather and celebrate with friends and family.

            It is always a great day in Monroe as both gyms at the Community Center on Monmouth Road are filled with grandparents and their grandchildren as they start their day-long adventure with one another. It is a special time for grandparents and grandchildren to bond together. The theme of this year’s event is “Beach Party” in December. Following the luncheon, the grandparents and grandchildren will board school buses and travel to the movie at the Regal Cinemas on Route 1 in North Brunswick.

The only stipulation for those who want to attend is that either the grandparent or the grandchild, or both must be residents of Monroe Township.

            Space is limited for Grandparent’s Day, and residents must sign up in advance. Registration forms are available on and at the Community Center.
