LAWRENCE TWP., N.J. (June 12, 2024) — The first official day of summer certainly calls for fun! Join the Lawrence healthcare campus for Samba Fitness and Wellness Day on Thursday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free and open to the public, the family-friendly event will be held at Lawrence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, located at 1 Bishops Drive in Lawrence Twp.  

Festivities include interactive activities for all ages, educational opportunities, live entertainment, and booths featuring area businesses, gyms and vendors, as well as refreshments and healthy smoothies, too.
