Calendar of Events: June 2020
Publisher’s Note: This month we’re spotlighting virtual events offered online here in NJ and beyond. Enjoy!
VISIT THE MUSEUM OF EARLY TRADES & CRAFT — ONLINE!
The METC has so many fascinating interesting things to do online. From online events to a virtual tour of the permanent exhibit to the call for stories for the Share Your Story Project, there’s something for everyone at the METC.
CHECK OUT THE MORRIS MUSEUM
Until the museum is back open to the public, there’s plenty to see, hear and do online. Visit their social media handles and the Virtual Morris Museum page for all the details.
LEARN SOMETHING NEW WITH THE MORRIS COUNTY TOURISM BUREAU
The tourism bureau continues to update Morris County Residents with the goings-on of our 300 members of the Morris County Tourism Bureau. The staff is working to bring you the latest ways to stay safe & sane in Morris County.
VISIT ELLIS ISLAND TOGETHER
Thanks to Scholastic, kids (and adults) can go on a tour of Ellis Island. It’s almost like being there (without having to wait on a line!).
MAKE AN AMAZING FATHER’S DAY CARD
Give the kids some simple craft supplies, and let them choose their favorites from the selections on DIYJOY.com for inspiration.
Arts by the People has moved its programming online. Check out their website for opportunities to read and listen to your work and the work of other writers.
Bonus: Email your work to email@example.com and we might print it in a future issue.
CHECK OUT THE LIBRARY OF THE CHATHAMS’ VIRTUAL OFFERINGS.
Virtual book groups, video game club, storytimes, yoga, music, dance and chess are a few.
HELP PRESERVE HISTORY
You can help the Library of Congress preserve important historical documents by becoming a volunteer transcriber. No special equipment needed (just a computer with a WIFI connection). A satisfying way to spend a few hours on a rainy day.
CELEBRATE FLAG DAY (JUNE 14TH)
Learn all about Flag Day, then celebrate the day by making and decorating your own flags at home.
KEEP MOVING WITH THE MADISON AREA YMCA
While the doors are closed the Y is still sharing workouts and daily encouragement on their social media channels.
Bonus: Make up your own fun fitness routine–soundtrack included.
TAKE A VIRTUAL ART CLASS
Author and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton teaches fun, accessible online drawing classes on her Instagram channel. Suitable for all ages.
