Gifts For His Royal Highness: NCC Celebrates Three Kings Day


New Community Adult Learning Center rolled out the red carpet for a celebration fit for a king. During the holiday season, the center held a celebration in honor of Three Kings Day, which commemorates the biblical story of the three wise men who followed a star to Bethlehem, where they encountered baby Jesus and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. The festivities included a film screening, refreshments and a room filled with presents to give away by the three kings, Alfred Rodriguez (blue), Hector Aguirre (red) and Joseph Perez (purple), from the Phi Iota Alpha fraternity. The event was co-sponsored by NCC and St. Rose of Lima Church, World Artist Network, Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity, Horizon NJ Health and the Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores located in Elizabeth, Rockaway and Flanders. The Adult Learning Center offers classes and workshops to the community, including English as a Second Language, citizenship, computer basics, GED, health screenings, mammograms, and more. For information, call 973-558-5536 or visit the center at 563 Orange St. in Newark. Photos courtesy of Cristhian Barcelos.
