Heath Village to host Living History Program on April 10

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – On Wednesday, April 10 at 2:00 p.m. members of the public are invited to join Heath Village residents for a Living History Program featuring Carol McKinney who will be presenting Discreet Crete: Mrs. Lucretia Garfield, First Lady Ahead of Her Time.

Carol McKinney, noted First Lady re-enactor and president of the Heath Village Board of Trustees, will portray Mrs. Lucretia Garfield. Although Lucretia Garfield was only First Lady for 200 days, she is remembered as a savvy political partner to her husband, the 20th U.S. President, James Garfield.

Crete was one of the most interesting women to have held that job, and some of her early achievements and choices set the tone for those of her more modern successors.

If you are a history buff or simply curious to learn more about this historical First Lady, this is an event you will not want to miss.

A local resident and President of the Heath Village Board of Trustees, McKinney has been charming audiences for years with her lectures and portrayals of First Ladies.

While the program is free, RSVP is required and space is limited. To register, call 908-684-5009.

Heath Village is a full-service retirement community located at 430 Schooley’s Mountain Road in Washington Township, Morris County. For more information, call 908-852-4801 or visit
