It might be getting colder here in the Garden State, but if you’re a grandparent or grandchild in Monroe, the township’s upcoming annual Grandparents’ Day Out might just warm your heart.

On Friday, December 27th, Monroe-based grandparents and grandchildren are invited to join in a day of family bonding. Starting at 10:30am, the day will include family portraits, lunch, and a movie at the Regal Commerce 18 Theater in North Brunswick.

The event is being hosted by the Monroe Community Center, located at 120 Monmouth Road. To register, visit the center and complete a registration form. Either the grandparents or grandchildren need to be Monroe residents to participate.

As the year winds down, Monroe’s Grandparents’ Day Out is a great way to stay active and connected to your loved ones.
