The 2nd annual Community showcase will be at the Glen Rock High School Cafeteria on November 2 from 7p- 9p. The Community Showcase was started last year as a way to introduce residents, both new and old, to the many organizations in Glen Rock that provide cultural, recreational and educational opportunities for children and adults.
When we introduced the event last year, it was based on our experience with families new to the borough who often tell us they chose Glen Rock due to the reputation of the schools; we wanted them to have the opportunity to learn about all of the other great things the community has to offer their families. We were pleasantly surprised at the number of long-time residents who also attended, making it apparent that all community members will find something of value by joining us.”
