Trailer and Tent Camp. It is a pleasure to announce that a camp will be set up at the Butterworth Farm, Old New Brunswick Road, near New Market, N. J. If you are traveling toward New York on U. S. Route 22, near Plainfield you will notice a large sign saying “Turn Right to Dunellen”. Make the right turn and drive through Dunellen to the camp. If you are traveling toward New York on U. S. Route 1, just after you leave New Brunswick turn left at the sign that says “To Camp Kilmer”. After you leave the main highways you will see “J.W. Camp” signs to guide you to the camp.
If you did not receive through your company of Jehovah’s witnesses the special form for requesting camp parking space, you may write to the Watchtower Convention Rooming Committee, 557 West 157th Street, New York 32, N. Y., and request the form. Please use the form when requesting parking space. There will be a small charge to those using this rented land.
To reach Yankee Stadium from the camp, which is about 40 miles away, you should travel by U. S. Route 1 or 22 to either the Holland or the Lincoln Tunnel or the Erie Ferry near the Holland Tunnel. In Manhattan take the West Side Express Highway (no trucks permitted) to 158th Street exit. The bridge at 155th street will take you across the Harlem river to the stadium. There are no parking facilities right at the stadium.
It is hoped talks at Yankee Stadium will be transmitted by telephone lines to the camp for the benefit of those who must be on duty, but to get the real blessing come to Yankee Stadium daily.
