Green Brook Seniors
The Green Brook Seniors Club is located at 111 Rock Avenue in a portion of the Public Works Facility. Members gather every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 AM to 4 PM to socialize. Every fourth Tuesday of the month, except for the summer months of July and August, we have a luncheon meeting with a speaker or entertainment. We are partially funded by the Township and dues are only $10 for the year. We work hard to keep our members busy and enjoying their senior years. During the year, we have one or two bus trips featuring a meal and entertainment at some well-known place.
Green Brook Committee on Elder Affairs:
