Registration now open for families to “Build” Summit in LEGOS

SUMMIT — A huge map of downtown Summit, 30×20 feet, that features all of the streets and dozens of significant buildings will have teams of children and their parents building each of these treasured buildings using more than 50,000 LEGO blocks.

On Sunday, January 26, 2014 from 1 to 3 p.m., the ninth annual LEGO Build benefitting the Summit Historical Society will be held at Washington School, 507 Morris Ave. The Architectural Heritage Workshop is intended as a fun way to teach children, their parents and grandparents — even aunts, uncles and cousins — about the heritage of buildings in Summit.

Children must be accompanied by their parents for the workshop, and spectators are invited to join the fun at no charge.

The workshop will be presented by Stephen W. Schwartz, of SWS Architects in Livingston, sponsored by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Summit Office and Smythe Volvo of Summit and supported by Summit Downtown, Inc.

Registration for this event is now open to all participants. Register in person at Coldwell Banker, 401 Springfield Ave. or Smythe Volvo, 326 Morris Ave.

The registration fee is a minimum contribution of $25 per family of which the total proceeds will be donated to the Summit Historical Society. Payment must be made at the time of registration to secure a spot to the event, which is limited to the first 50 families who register as there are only 50,000 LEGO’s. For questions, call 908-273-8000.
