Eighty-five years ago Short Hills resident Julia Lawrence Terry founded New Eyes, because of her dedication to improving vision for the needy. Please join the Millburn-short Hills Historical Society in celebrating Ms. Terry and the local community's commitment to continue her vision. The presentation by New Eyes Executive Director Jean Gajano will feature vintage photos, a wonderful collection of antique eyeglasses, from as far back as the 1700s, and a discussion of how New Eyes is adapting to changes in improving vision around the world.
Light refreshments will be served at 7:15 pm and the program will start at 7:30. If you would like to donate used eyeglasses or jewelry, a collection box for New Eyes will be provided at the meeting.
