Candlelight Tours at Rockingham

Sunday December 9, 2018
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Have you heard of Madame Moose or Sweetlips? How about Nelson and Blueskin? What do Shire, Devon and Hog Island have to do with 18th-century farming? What animals did George Washington have a strong hand in introducing to America? Rockingham will present its annual Candlelight Holiday Tours on Sunday, December 9 from 11 am to 4 pm. This year's theme revolves around the "beasts"—pets, working and wild animals—that were part of Washington's and his family's life. Learn about the funny names some of his many dogs had, what wild animals were important to Mount Vernon's (Washington's main farm's) economy and what various creatures served as pets in the Washington household. The Live Historians Club of Montgomery Township High School will present the faunal information in period dress as visitors tour from room to room of the historic house, which will be enhanced in the restrained 18th-century style of holiday decoration.

Visitors will enjoy holiday goodies and warm drinks in Rocingham's Children's Museum and visit the Museum Store to shop for such items as period toys, local honey, books, the Rockingham DVD, quills and tricorn hats. Tour space is limited, so advance reservations are required to guarantee admission. They must be made by calling 609-683-7132. There is a suggested donation of $5 per person or $10 per family. Tours will be offered at least every half-hour, with 3:30 being the last tour.

Rockingham is located on Laurel Avenue/Kingston-Rocky Hill Road (County Route 603) between Route 518 in Rocky Hill and Route 27 in Kingston. For further information or directions, call (609) 683-7132 or visit www.rockingham.net.

LIFT for Autism, Trenton-Mercer Airport

Sunday December 9, 2018
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Air travel can be an unpredictable experience for even the most seasoned traveler. For children, especially those with special needs, it can be overwhelming.

To help families prepare for air travel, the County of Mercer, Trenton-Mercer Airport and the Mercer County Special Services School District have organized a program called Let’s Investigate Flying Together (LIFT), which is designed to allow children with autism to become familiar with Trenton-Mercer Airport, airport procedures and the federal Transportation Security Administration (TSA) process ahead of their air travel trip.

The inaugural exercise held in May drew more than 40 adults, and their children with autism. The 90-minute program, set for Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018 from 7 to 8:30 a.m., will take participants through the experiences of entering the airport, getting boarding passes, going through security, sitting in the passenger hold area, and collecting their luggage through baggage claim. The exercise does not include boarding an aircraft or any actual travel.

Registration is required and is limited to 125 participants. To participate, please email TTN.LIFT@gmail.com.
