CNJM holds a gathering each month on a variety of eclectic topics that have included: guitar-making, military police dog demonstration, NJ tombstone markings, revolutionary war mutinies, and quantum physics proving love (to name a few). These presentations are usually held on the 2nd Friday at 8:00 PM in the Hotel Woodbridge at Metropark (formerly Woodbridge Hilton) in Iselin, NJ.

Members, guests, and potential members are all welcomed. Admission is now free.

Next gathering:

Special notice regarding dinner before the speaker!

Unfortunately, The Cafe Metro has closed and will reopen only for breakfast and lunch. Although there are other restaurants in the hotel, they are very pricey. We tried Bogart’s, which is a sports bar that serves food but is very noisy. I have not been able to find a suitable replacement restaurant that can accommodate us. Until such time, we will not be meeting for dinner. However we can meet in the meeting room from 7pm to 8pm to enjoy the sparkling conversation since the speaker starts at 8pm.

Friday, October 10 at 8:00PM
