The Trustees & Community Relations committee of the Township of
South Orange Village invited both new and old residents to
Newcomer’s-All Comer’s Day this past Sunday afternoon. Held at the South
Orange Public Library, all residents of the community came out to get
better acquainted with local organizations and services.
Newcomer’s Day provided participants with a great opportunity to see
what South Orange has to offer—from free yoga classes at South Mountain
Yoga, to the free events being held on our own campus at Seton Hall
Village president, Alex Torpey, welcomed the bustling crowd and spoke
about upcoming plans for the South Orange community including his goals
for the year. Approximately 300 new residents were in attendance
Sonya Pretzel and her family, new residents of the South Orange
community, learned about many beneficial services offered in town. “We
found out about great free kids programs at the library,” said Sonya.
“There were lots of wonderful friendly people and the YMCA has group fit
classes that I’m definitely interested.”
Residents were able to meet village officials, register to vote, and
get better acquainted with the Village. After the event, around 100
students from nearby schools joined the Seton Hall Ultimate Frisbee team
led by Captain Paul Lacy for a beautiful day of outdoor activities. All
student participants were fed for free by a generous donation from
Jimmy Cryan, local owner of Cryan’s Beef & Ale House.
