Brick Mayor Lisa Crate said she will lead the township’s first “Longest Table” event in town, an informal gathering of a large group of residents who will have the opportunity to voice opinions, ideas and brainstorm the future of Brick.
The “Longest Table” concept is one that has grown across the country in recent years – a community meal that provides neighbors the opportunity to gather and have conversations about their town. Brick will host its first event Saturday, Sept. 23 at the Robert Anstett Cultural Arts Center on Herbertsville Road. A rain date is set for Sunday, Sept. 24. The event begins at 1 p.m.
The event will feature a buffet-style meal as well as fun and stimulating topics of conversation with the common theme of Brick Township. It will accommodate approximately 200 attendees and, in order to facilitate civically-minded conversations, guests should be a minimum of 15 years old, the township said in its announcement. Additionally, while groups are encouraged to attend, individuals will not necessarily be seated together for the duration of the event.
An RSVP is required. To RSVP, residents are asked to email the number of attendees along with their names and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, residents can call 732-262-1050.
