The Martinsville Community Center is committed to providing opportunities for members of the community to improve their quality of life. The activities and events held at the MCC support this goal. Announcements will also be posted to this page of the website.
Summer has arrived and so has the heat and humidity! Following a 2-year hiatus due to Covid, the MCC is happy to announce the return of the annual Fall Festival! Mark your calendar for Saturday, September 17 from 11:00am-3:00pm. The MCC will be joined by our service partners (Bridgewater Police Department, Martinsville Volunteer Fire Department, Martinsville Volunteer Rescue Squad, the Somerset County Historical Society, the Friends of Bridgewater History and more). There will be games for children, pumpkin painting, raffles, music, and live performances. Don’t miss the opportunity to relax and visit with your neighbors and friends. Local businesses will be sharing information in the vendor tent. If you are a business and interested in participating or being a sponsor, contact Jane Gandolfe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 732-533-3634. Individuals may also be sponsors! We are looking forward to this celebration! Hope to see you there!
In other news, the MCC continues to offer Zumba classes and classical Indian dance classes. The Scouts are on summer break and will return in September. It is our pleasure to offer the MCC as a meeting place for these groups.
Private rentals are also available. Check out the MCC calendar to see what is happening. MCC Calendar of Events – Martinsville Community Center

LOOKING FOR SERVICE HOURS or to MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
Volunteers are needed for the building/yard clean-ups and also to help organize events. If you have ideas for activities for adults or for children, please contact Jane Gandolfe, email@example.com or (732) 469-0999. This is YOUR community center and we want you/your family to enjoy it. Remember annual membership is only $25/household.
The Washington Valley Library is thriving. It is a great one room library, with terrific children’s books, and the newest fiction books. Also, there are the latest magazines, and they circulate! The reading program with the Giving Nest preschool (next door) which began a year ago is working out well. These youngsters come to the library at least once a month and have learned how to select and borrow books. What a great way to develop a love of reading from the start! If you are interested in volunteering at the library (2 hrs/day, one day a month or more), please contact Carole Juth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
