Sandy's Wake-Up Call: Juried Photography Show

http://wbsm.com/incredible-view-of-hurricane-sandy-from-space/
Opening reception: Saturday, November 8, 2:00-4:00 pm

The devastation Superstorm Sandy wreaked on the region was a wake-up call to everyone. Before the storm, we had virtually ignored imminent environmental problems. As heroic and committed as the response to Superstorm Sandy was, the problems will be with our region for a long time. By keeping the memory of Sandy alive, we can have a positive impact on the future. Much has been done to recover and restore the region since Sandy, but much, much more must be done. The Green Team and Shade Tree Committee in Bernardsville are taking one step toward this goal with the organization of this exhibition entitled “Sandy’s Wake-Up Call.” For all the details, click here.
