LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. — "Hello!" "How are you today?" "Glad you could make it!"
These greetings are often offered as throwaway salutations, but not at this party. Those extending the greetings mean them, every word. And, because this is not your typical party, many are happy just to have an opportunity to extend the greeting at all.
For the past three years, The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on the corner of Mathistown Road and Route 9 has hosted "Saturday Night Social" — an event that gives adults with developmental disabilities or brain injuries an opportunity to break from routine and have some fun.
