Welcome New Residents

Article Image Alt Text

Hundreds of people, including newcomers and volunteers, attended the "Welcome to Livingston" event held at the Senior/Community Center this past Monday evening. Refreshments were served and representatives of many township organizations were on hand to offer information to new residents, and to answer their questions about life in Livingston. Shown here, Carrie Xiao’s family moved to Livingston from the San Francisco Bay area when her husband’s job relocated. “Livingston is really good,” she said. “We did thorough research. It has a great quality of life, education, and involvement. It is the best place to start our new life.” Her father, who is visiting from China, said it is “like living in a park.” Xiao is shown with sons Justin Yan, 7, and Jonathan Yan, 10, who attend Collins School. Also shown, after 28 years in Australia, Keith and Valerie Sentis became Livingston newcomers. “We went to Australia on a three-year business rotation, and never left,” Valerie said.
