- It's Homecoming Weekend in Hopatcong! The milestone event features Hopatcong High School's Chiefs squaring off against Kinnelon in football at home Friday at 7 p.m. And on Saturday is the annual Homecoming Dance—we mention it on Friday so parents and guardians can deal with the last-minute preparations some of our teens leave until the last minute. The event is scheduled for 7-10 p.m. and will be held in the high school cafeteria. The schools address is 2A Windsor Ave. Kids, these are the good old days you'll remember when you're old like us—be safe and smart and enjoy.
- Looking for something to do with the wee ones this Friday? The Sparta Public Library presents "Bookmark a Story." The event, designed for youngsters 12 months and old, features the reading of a delightful short story perfect for the littlest of children followed by an arts and crafts session where the kids can create (or help to make) their very own bookmark. The free event takes place at 11 a.m. The library can be found at 2 Woodport Road in Sparta.
