UPCOMING EVENTS AT THE COMMONWEALTH CLUB SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2023
WEEK OF 9/19: MEN’S BOWLING LEAGUE BEGINS
SATURDAY, 9/23: BROOKDALE PARK CONSERVANCY WORK DAY
The Brookdale Park Conservancy definitely needs some Commonwealth power at its next Community Volunteer Day on Sat, Sept 23rd from 10am-12pm.
We have two ambitious projects for that day. The first is unloading 3 or 4 pallets of about 1-foot size river rocks and creating a border along a planting bed by the playground that is about 200 feet long. There will also be some planting in that bed. The second project is to revisit the pondside area that we’ve cleaned out before, do some additional clean out there, and then help to spread 2 full dump trucks of woods chips over that entire area for weed suppression. We will plant this whole pondside area next Spring.
We will meet at 10am at the Conservancy’s white tent near the pondside and then break all the community volunteers into the two groups from there. We have tools unless you’d like to bring your favorites from home, but if you can bring your own work gloves that is really helpful.
Everyone who participates, if you don’t already have one, get a free “Commonwealth Club Cares” t-shirt, which can be worn at the event-it pays to advertise!
THURSDAY, 10/5: LOCAL CRAFT BEER THIRSTY THURSDAY
This was a big hit last year when we did our initial craft beer night, so we’re bringing it back. This time, we are highlighting NJ and local brews, including those of the Newark Local Brewery, which has ties to several club members. More details to come.
SATURDAY, 10/7: MIXED BOWLING
Our first couples bowling night of the year! Every one of these last year had a big crowd, so set the night aside and sign up-there will be a sign up sheet on the bulletin board by the lanes.
SATURDAY, 10/28: HALLOWEEN PARTY
The Commonwealth Clubhouse Halloween Party – 2023 will be held on Saturday, October 28th, starting at 6pm. It will be a fun evening for members and guests, and a great way to introduce potential new members to the Club. Please come out with a friend or two and get creative for a spooky Halloween bash!
Music will be provided by Live DJ’s NKNX & Joshua Garcia of BUNKR Studios. There will be a costume contest in 5 different categories: Solo, Couple, Group, Most Unique and Scariest. Go all out and take home first prize! The event will also feature a massive candy bar buffet to get you warmed up for trick-or-treating! Plus, there will be a Jack-O’-Lantern Carving Contest… you will have a chance to enter to win, or vote for your favorite pumpkin…. more on that to follow.
The entry fee is $40 and includes beer, wine & liquor open bar, and small eats. The party is for members and guests that are 21 years and over. Sorry, but no kids! Costumes are required!
