The County College of Morris will celebrate the county’s senior citizens with a one-day conference Friday, May 28 on the college’s Randolph campus.

The event will feature a keynote on the origins of the conflicts in the Middle East followed by morning workshops and discussions on topics ranging from the agendas of both Governor Christie and President Obama to meditation and movement and a sentimental journey listening and singing along to the music of such composers as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.

After lunch, the afternoon program will focus on 300 years of piano music in Europe and America.

Registration and a continental breakfast will begin at 7:45 a.m. The keynote, workshops, lunch and the afternoon session will follow, with the conference ending at 2:15 p.m.

Since the conference will be held on the college’s campus on Center Grove Road, walking between buildings will be necessary.

Registration is $15 and includes refreshments and lunch. Pre-registration is required. For a brochure, visit and click on CCM Celebrates Seniors. Additional information may be obtained by calling (973) 328-5187.
