BRICK, N.J. (June 12, 2024) — The first official day of summer certainly calls for fun! Join two Ocean County skilled nursing facilities – Willow Springs and Crest Pointe Rehabilitation & Healthcare Centers – for Samba Fitness and Wellness Day on Thursday, June 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Free and open to the public, the family-friendly event will be held at Greenbriar One, located at 1 Darley Circle in Brick. 

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