This "funtastic" dance exercise program will be led by the dynamic Theresa Belford - a dance fitness instructor for the
Scotch Plains Recreation Department.  Theresa's popular programs sell out fast!  Theresa incorporates dance with other
aspects of fitness such as boxing, balance and Tai-chi. She believes that there are many benefits to dance fitness including
weight loss, cardio, health, improved coordination, stress relief and most-importantly - fun! Theresa's programs are
accompanied by music which she says, "brings people together."

worked with the sign company and erected the sign and its planting base on New Providence Road in Mountainside.  The

THE LEVI CORY HOUSE IS IN PLACE!
After two postponements, Mountainside’s historic Levi Cory House was finally moved on
November 2, 2013 and situated on its permanent lot on November 9th.  Work has been
ongoing to build the foundation and the 4-foot crawl space is now complete.  The house was
lowered onto its new foundation on September 5th, 2014.  Crawl space walls are complete
soil has been backfilled around the house.  Two chimneys were replaced and work will soon
begin on a new roof and repair of the building's sill and fascia.  Future plans also include
replacement of the side porch which was original to the house and the removal of the front
bow window which was a "modern" addition and not part of the original structure.

This landmark property on the corner of Mountain Avenue & New Providence Road was sold and will be developed
commercially.  The Mountainside Restoration Committee has acquired the historic structure and raised funds to save it from
demolition, but it had to be moved.  The Borough of Mountainside allowed the house to be permanently placed on Borough
property on Constitution Plaza.  The house, now relocated to its new home, is a fitting neighbor to the Hetfield House.

WE STILL NEED YOUR SUPPORT!  The Committee needs financial and volunteer help to make more history happen.
Contact us immediately and be a part of this very historic move and restoration of this historic structure.
The clock is ticking!   email:  hetfieldhouse1@yahoo.com; call:  (908)789-9420
