RED BANK: PAINT & SIP FOR HOOK & LADDER

Paint and SipOn the evening of Saturday, March 19, the volunteers of Red Bank’s Navesink Hook and Ladder Company No. 1 invite the public to “uncork the inner artist you didn’t think existed” and join in a Paint & Sip Fundraiser for the firehouse, located at 7-9 Mechanic Street.
