Hear about the early days of historic town

The historic town of Roosevelt, founded as a resettlement community during the Roosevelt era, is hosting an evening of storytelling and memory sharing by some of its longtime residents and original inhabitants.

Roosevelt began as a dream and a new start in the Garden State for workers from the garment center of New York City. The town has been home to artists, writers, musicians and a host of colorful characters.

Join the Roosevelt Arts Project for an intergenerational evening of fun, memories and surprises starting at 8 p.m. Oct. 23 at the borough hall on Route 571. Suggested voluntary donation is $5.

Topics discussed will include the depression era, the Bauhaus-styled homes, the communal farm and factory and the original utopian dream. Featured storytellers include Delores Chasan, Ginny Edwards, Ed Goetzmann, Al Hepner, Pearl Seligman and Jeff Klein.
