During the month of February, The Old Bridge Central Library will be hosting the work of local artists Marie Monohan and Carol Seip in its Art Gallery. A Meet the Artists reception will be held on February 12, 2005 at 2:00 p.m. Carol and Marie both love to garden and partake in natures creativity. With many years experience in growing flowers, attending garden tours and garden shows, their desire to capture some of this beauty on paper has led them to present this show of some of their favorite flowers.

Archaeology at Monmouth Battlefield
On Saturday, February 12th at 1:30 p.m the Old Bridge Central Library will welcome Dan Sivilich from the archaeology group BRAVO to give a presentation on the Battle of Monmouth and the group's research. On June 28, 1778 the two great armies of the American Revolution met on the plains of Monmouth Courthouse and clashed in the largest battle of the war. The 3rd Brigade of British Foot (42nd Regiment) was one of Sir Henry Clinton's most seasoned and battle-ready units in his command. This distinguished unit of Highlanders was repulsed by an American unit of hand-picked men from several New England Regiments which turned the tide of battle. What caused the Highlanders to leave the field of battle? For more information call (732) 721-5600 ext. 5033 or e-mail Tim.
We just received word from Dan to tell us that the History Channel will be replaying their Battlefield Detectives program that features the BRAVO group and their Monmouth research at 11:00 p.m. on Friday, February 11th.
