What I did
Jersey City Assembly Hall
After the am witnessing excursion to Staten Island, we had a couple of hours to recuperate before being picked up for the evening social event at 5.30. We understood that congegations were going to host delegates for a dinner and entertainment. We had no idea where we were going. We headed south, so was it Staten Island again? It so happens that we were picking up a couple from a hotel at Newark Airport. The bus driver seemed to get lost so at least we saw a bit of the airport as we drove around. Anyway we headed back towards New Jersey and landed at the Jersey City Assembly Hall (Stanley Theatre). Yaaay!! By this time it was about 8.15.
A sit down meal had been prepared, and a light social program
A video of the recent work at Warwick.
An interview with Sister Sydney Barber on convention attendance over the years (widow of Brother Carey Barber of GB)
Some musical items - family group singing, other vocal and instrumental.
Plenty of talk and taking of photos.
There were two areas set up for delegates on two different floors of an extension to the theatre that had been built years ago. It is now used for overflowseating with CCTV for assemblies and conventions. Folk fromlocal congregations were also invitedto welcomeand talk with the delegates.
A nice but tiring day, but more to come. Wallkill and Patterson on Thursday!!
