Celebrating 125 Years of Preservation
On October 21st the Friends Meeting House and Cemetery Association of Randolph Township will celebrate its 125th anniversary. Fall meeting will begin at 11:00 am. A public program and refreshments to celebrate our anniversary will follow at 1:30 pm. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the public program to tour our ongoing preservation work.
In collaboration with Randolph Township, on June 11th the Association planted an oak seedling in the meadow to the west of the Meeting House. The seedling came from New Jersey’s oldest oak tree—a 550+-year-old oak that had grown in the Salem NJ Quaker cemetery until it was tragically blown down in June 2019. The NJ Department of Environmental Protection propagated seedlings from the Salem Oak to celebrate its 50th anniversary and 50 years of Earth Day
