Landing, Crossroads of Lake Hopatcong

Thursday, January 23, 2020 – 7 pm (doors open at 6:30)
Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center
125 Landing Road, Landing, NJ

Landing was once a transportation hub for Lake Hopatcong with the Lackawanna Railroad, Morris County Traction Company, and two different steamboat companies all converging to deliver passengers to their destinations around the popular resort area. Spectacular images of the Lackawanna, Black Line, and White Line steamers, and trolley, presented by Lake Hopatcong Historical Museum President Marty Kane, will give you a whole new perspective of this area and explain just how Landing got its name.

New Jersey Highlands Rediscovered

Thursday, February 20, 2020 – 7 pm (doors open at 6:30)
Lake Hopatcong Foundation Environmental & Cultural Center

See the award-winning 30-minute documentary by NJN, THE HIGHLANDS REDISCOVERED (2004), which looks at both the science and the history of New Jersey’s portion of this heavily forested region that sits inside the northeastern metropolitan area.  Water quality and quantity are the key benefits of this undeveloped region to the densely populated cities, and the forest habitat is what makes the water clean and plentiful.  Afterwards, join in an open discussion with New Jersey Highlands Coalition Policy Director Elliott Ruga on the Highlands region history and current Highlands issues.

JACQUELINE KENNEDY ONASSIS PORTRAYED BY JILL LAWRENCE

She was a Kennedy. She was an Onassis. She did not define herself by her husbands.

As a young mother she was catapulted onto the World Stage when her husband John F. Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States. Realizing that future generations would need the insights of the past for guidance, her preservation efforts galvanized the rest of the country to protect its historic monuments. Aided by her public profile, her work helped bring about the Historic Preservation Act of 1966: the most far-reaching preservation legislation ever enacted in the United States.
