The Middlesex County Fair Grounds is located at 645 Cranbury Road, at the intersection with Fern Road.

Concert to Benefit Crisis Room: Hear some great music while helping the Aldersgate Crisis Room.

A benefit concert at , 568 Ryders Lane, will be held tomorrow, (Saturday) at 7:30 p.m. And don’t worry if you can’t cover the cost of admission, all they’re asking for is one non-perishable food item, which will be given to the crisis room.

The theme of the evening will be “Old American Songs” as performed by local professional musicians. These include organist Shea Velosso, Director of Music at The United Methodist Church in Milltown; Loren Fortna, Professor of Guitar at Montclair State University; Wilbur Watkin Lewis, basso and author of “Researching the Song (2006);” and Richard Biernacki BSG, piano, Director of Music Aldersgate United Methodist Church.

This is a great opportunity to explore some local talent and help out a great cause.
