This month’s sports theme, coordinated by Big L and the Sports Council, will involve many local sports organizations in a celebration of athletic events and programs to celebrate the Bicentennial and our fit and active lifestyles.
Also, to mark the first actual meeting of the Township government in 1813, a town-wide celebration of the First Meeting Day will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2013 at Field House at Livingston High School. Governor Chris Christie will be our keynote speaker, the original Township Charter will be read aloud, and historical pictures and information will abound!
Reception for Grade 2 Timeline Honoring 200 Years of Livingston History - April 30 at 3:30 p.m. (Livingston Public Library)
Wondering about Livingston’s role in the Civil War? What the township’s major industry was 200 years ago? Your second grader probably knows!
Second graders have created a 45-foot long timeline of Livingston history as part of Livingston at 200, the township’s yearlong observation of its bicentennial.
The second grade social studies curriculum is set up for students to explore their town, the past and present, and the bicentennial dovetails nicely with lessons going on in the classroom. Their work is also being incorporated into web-based/interactive games for Livingston second graders to learn more about the history of the township. An interactive timeline will feature the illustrations by this year’s second graders. The community is invited to a reception honoring the second graders and their parents on Tuesday, April 30 at 3:30 p.m. at the Livingston Public Library. We will be displaying the timeline on tables and after the event it will go up in the children’s area to help showcase the library’s theme this summer — “Time Travel.”
