12.6.13 Tree Lighting at the Cemetery

 tl hc

Yet another tree lighting in Jersey City! The Historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery (436 Newark Ave.) hosts its annual Christmas tree lighting and caroling tonight, Friday, December 6th, at 7:30pm.

The Yuletide Carolers of New Jersey and a few surprise guests will be performing. Dress warmly, bring the fam, and please sing along.

As I always say about this non-church affiliated, non-government property, donate if you can. In the cemetery’s words: “Every month we need to raise between $2000 to $3000 just to operate and purchase equipment & supplies. If 300 people would donate only $10 each, we would be all set for the month!” Please help our amazing restoration work by contributing today at www.jerseycitycemetery.org.

Holiday cheer is here,

Macbeth Saturday 8/17

MACBETH

The Hudson Shakespeare Company performs Macbeth live at The Historic Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery (435 Newark Ave.) at 7pm on Saturday, August 17th. Watch a classic put to the stage in this theatrical benefit for the cemetery, which is a 100% volunteer-operated space, having no house-of-worship affiliation and no city or state funding.

This performance is sure to knock you out of the park! So bring your friends, your family, your blankets (nights are starting to get chilly). You may think a cemetery is a creepy place to gather, especially at night, but Harsimus really is a neat spot. Read about my experience here.

There’s a suggested donation of $10 per person for the show. In the cemetery’s words: “Every month we need to raise between $2000 to $3000 just to operate & purchase equipment & supplies. If 300 people would donate only $10 each, we would be all set for the month of September! Please help our amazing restoration work by contributing today at www.jerseycitycemetery.org
