NJ: FAMILY DAY HELPS STRENGTHEN TIES
PATERSON -- Heat and bright sunshine drove adults attending the Islamic Center of Passaic County Family Day on Sunday to seek refuge in the shade, but nothing could keep their children away from the basketball courts and large inflatable games in the center's sunny parking lot.
"The kids don't care," said Zaid Asmar, of Butler. "This is for them. It's a family day for the kids to get together."
More than 100 people decided to forego the traveling frenzy of Memorial Day Weekend and ventured instead to the Islamic Center's annual Family Day celebration.
