Great Nancy,

Love bringing the kids along too.

I think you'll like this place - but maybe not as much as Sud?

Loretta's cell# for your 10:25 arrival at Princeton Junction  609-577-4646

Call her if you need to when you get there. You should be all set.

Ok. I'll note that in the event. I'll send another email reminder out tomorrow.

Great. We'll be sure to wait for your train. If anything changes. give me a call on the cell 973-214-1811. Looks like we have a few more people joining us in Cranford. See you tomorrow.
At 10:16pm on April 7, 2010, Paul Kiczek said…

Yes, the train station would be the place to meet.
NJ Transit only runs from Newark to Cranford - this train will get you to Cranford for morning on Sunday. You'd also need to catch the PATH to Newark first.

09:38 AM - NWK 09:55 AM -CRN 17 minutes

By my estimate we should be walking in Newark/Penn at about 5:30.

I'll put out an email for JC contacts.

At 11:07pm on April 5, 2010, Paul Kiczek said…
Let me look over the list tomorrow.
I also have other friends in JC that might not yet be registered.
I'll get back to you.
