September is hopping in Hopewell! This Friday night, September 20th, at 5pm is the not-to-be-missed CRUISE NIGHT.  Come stroll down Broad Street in the Boro, check out the vintage cars, listen to great live music, and sample some of some Hopewell's finest fare. Then next Saturday the 28th, is the HOPEWELL HARVEST FAIR which brings together "residents, businesses, and community organizations for a day of old fashioned fun and entertainment."  Come join in on the fun while helping out too (money raised is donated to local non-profits).  And last but not least....the evening of the 28th is the ST. MICHAEL'S BARN DANCE AND CELEBRATION from 5-8pm at the St. Michael's Farm Preserve in Hopewell.  Come tour the newly reassembled circa 1840's barn, enjoy a guided walk, take a yoga class with the AMAZING Lara Heimann of Princeton's Yoga Stream Studio, and TONS more activities: native plants available to purchase for home gardening, a family music and movement class led by Music Together class, dance to the Riverside Blue Grass Band, and catered barbecue for purchase by Ian McDonald.  Bring blanket and chairs.  Happy fall in Hopewell!

Where can you find this architectural feature?
 The fabulous and creative Hopewell Public Library is hosting a month-long, town-wide scavenger hunt: "Hopewell Observer".  The hunt invites you to "take the month of September to explore all the streets of Hopewell Boro and look closely at the signs, architecture, gardens, and other rewarding surprises that fill our town."  Recommended for adults and older families, all scavenger-hunt items are visible from the Boro sidewalks "in plain sight on both private and public property and Boro businesses - no trespassing necessary!" The hunt booklets are available now at the library.  Record your answers all month long and return the booklet by October 5th for scoring.  Items located throughout the entire Boro.  Happy Hunting!
