BillyIdolv2Billy Idol Coming to Morristown

Classic 80’s rock British bad boy Billy Idol, known for such power pop hits as “Rebel Yell,” “White Wedding,” “Dancing with Myself” and “Eyes Without a Face”, will be performing live Friday, June 5 at 8:00 pm at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, 100 South Street, Morristown NJ.

Billy Idol is one of a few musicians who can step on stage and immediately captivate the audience by his presence. His signature bleached spiked hair, his black leather jacket, and his macho like attitude are all important in creating the atmosphere for his performance. Although his appearance is highly engrossing, his music is what wins the audience’s hearts.

Mountain Lakes residents – Do you have your beach tags for summer?

beach tags

Summer is finally here! Its time to enjoy the beach and have some good, safe fun!
Beaches are restricted for use by residents and immediate family members who reside with them. As you may know, to enter the beach, a beach tag available from Borough Hall is required. Proof of residency is necessary for ALL adults over 21 wishing to purchase tags.
Children under two years of age (as of June 1, 2013) do not need a tag. Seniors (aged 62 or over) must obtain tags but there is no fee. One Nanny tag is available per household and must be purchased separately.

This summer especially, we all are excited to be spending time with friends and family members in NJ on our beautiful beaches with so much to offer in terms of fine dining restaurants, activities for families, summer camps,  etc. We are so lucky to have these amazing beaches so close to us at Legacy of Mountain Lakes – just another reason our residents enjoy living here so much.

Summer living at Legacy is underway and we couldn’t be happier!

Don’t forget your sunscreen!
