LEGO NIGHT --- On November 2nd 2018 ALNNJ members attended the 28th Annual Lego Night hosted by Hasbrouck Heights Public Library. There was great enthusiasm among all the kids who built various kinds of Lego structures. Chris Dougherty, AIA, Steven Lazarus, AIA and Ruchi Dhar, AIA participated in the event as judges. They choose winners based on the different age groups and the level of creativity. This event showcased the kid’s imagination ranging from construction site to a Lounge & Bar. Thank you to Ruth Bussacco, AIA for organizing the ALNNJ team of volunteers and big thank you to all the participating judges. (photo credit: Ruchi Dhar, AIA) #alnnj
