    We will gather at the Budd Lake office and then transport to the Pax Amicus Theatre in Budd Lake to see A Christmas Story (details here: ). ANO will provide pretzels for snack @ intermission. The parking lot and access are a little tricky at this site, which is why we are trying to limit vehicles. $20.00 per ticket, pre-paid. The timing has been adjusted since earlier notice. Pick up is at 5pm back at the office.
    Space is by wait list only.

    If you sign up online, please let us know which family members plan to attend and what you may bring.
    For those on the Supports Plan, this event counts as a regular program of 3 hours.
    We are also asking for a $10 contribution from each family to help bring DJ Marie’s magic back again.
