Hey, South Orange (Old and New) Residents! Please join us for our annual Newcomers Day where you can meet your neighbors, spend time speaking with the municipal departments and elected officials and visit and sign up to volunteer for some fabulous organizations and/or committees.  We encourage all residents to bring their families, their neighbors, or bring a friend!  For social distancing and spacing purposes, all organizations will be set up around the perimeter of the Duck Pond.
