From pre-history to the present, Kingston has a “Place in History.” George Luck, Jr and Charlie Dieterich present a survey of moments from the settlement of Kingston, New Jersey. The talk was especially designed for those who are new to town or unfamiliar with our evolution. Over 40 people attended in person, and 70 online. Those at the firehouse were treated to cookies, hot chocolate and coffee, courtesy of Harbor Chase Assisted Living. www.harborchase.com/
