Mark Preston/Special to the Sun

Medford council and the township’s VFW Post 7677 will host a Memorial Day parade that will feature a performance by the Shawnee High School marching band. rade.

Medford’s annual Memorial Day parade – sponsored by township council and VFW Post 7677 – will return on Monday, May 30. The parade will begin at 11 a.m. at Milton H. Allen School and travel through South Main Street. It will then go left on South Main and stop at the war memorial for the raising of an American flag, presentation of a wreath and a 21-gun salute, then continue on Union Street and conclude at Freedom Park, where a ceremony will be held. This year's parade participants will include members of the VFW post, Medford police and EMS, the Union and Taunton fire companies and the Civil Air Patrol-Air Victory Museum Composite Squadron. Mark Preston, post commander and retired U.S. Army colonel, noted that local members of the VFW have been involved in the township’s Memorial Day parade since the post was established 75 years ago and its veterans lead the pa-

VFW members are involved in other local Memorial Day parades and observances, with 12 to 30 veterans often in attendance, according to Preston. The events cover Tabernacle, Shamong, Chatsworth, Lumberton and Southampton town-

ships, and VFW members also visit 17 cemeteries in the Pinelands. “We're letting everybody know that there's people who have sacrificed their lives for all of us to be where we’re at today, and we're just trying

to continue that tradition so nobody ever forgets,” Preston noted. Other participants in Medford’s parade will be Medford Masonic Lodge No. 178, the Warrior Watch Riders and the Shawnee High School marching band, which has participated in township parades and been an active participant in Memorial Day parades and celebrations for many years. Pam Czekay, a graduate of Shawnee and former member of the marching band, will be the Memorial Day parade’s band director for the first time this year. The group will wear their traditional Shawnee blue uniforms and perform a piece of music called “Main Street America.” “It's a medley of patriotic music and music of the armed forces to honor those who have fallen on memorial day,” said Czekay, who added that the band will march with the American flag and banner in front and the color guard will perform down Main Street in Medford. “I'm excited to see the kids march in the parade again and be able to honor our soldiers and our country by doing this,” she noted. “It's an important tradition for us.” For more information, visit medfordtownship.com.

County farmers market kicks off its 16th season Food vendors and artists on hand The Burlington County Commissioners invited residents from across the county and beyond to participate in what has become a popular spring rite of passage: Opening Day of the Burlington County Farmers’ Market. Last year was the most successful season in the market’s history with a record-high average of nearly 1,200 vehicles each Saturday during the regular season and more than 2,000 vehicles during the two special holiday markets in November and December. This year marks the sixteenth season, which is poised to be the biggest yet. Several new farms and vendors have joined the Farmers’ Market and an entire slate of live music and cooking classes are scheduled. The market is held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday in

May through October at the Burlington County Agricultural Center on Centerton Road in Moorestown. “Live music, delicious food, handcrafted goods, cooking classes and the best Jersey fresh farm produce around can be found each Saturday at our Burlington County Farmers Market,” said Commissioner Allison Eckel, the Board’s liaison to the Department of Resource Conservation. “Our county market is now one of the most popular in the state, and it continues to grow each year. We’re thrilled by the market’s success and the weekly boost it provides to our local farmers and small business owners, and we’re looking forward to another record-breaking season this year.” More than 20 farms, two dozen please see OPENING DAY, page 15

in our opinion

It’s in the bag

About the state’s ban on plastic

B

y now, most of us have likely heard conversations about New Jersey’s new single-use plastic ban, instituted two weeks ago and the strictest in the nation. Some of the talk comes in the form of questions, such as: Can I still use plastic for my household trash? (Yes). Can I still buy Styrofoam cups? (No) What about dog doo? (See below). Some people are frustrated, some mad, especially when they find themselves at the supermarket checkout without a parcel because their newly purchased, allowed bags are in the trunk of the car. It’s a little early to gauge the ban’s overall effect. But anecdotal reporting from Advance Media suggests people would like the usable bags to be free, though you can buy one for $1 to $1.50 in many grocery stores and retailers. And they’d like to see more highly visible reminders of the ban, in store parking lots for instance. Like anything else we’re forced into, we’ll get used to the ban. But it helps to know more details: • A single-use plastic carryout bag is defined by the ban as one made of plastic but not reusable.

In YOUR opinion Let us know your thoughts by sending a letter to the editor to the email address at the right.

• Prohibited are almost all plastic carryout bags like those found at grocery stores; paper bags, but only in larger supermarkets or big-box stores with sizable grocery sections, such as Target and Walmart; and most plastic foam food containers and cups. (A restriction on plastic straws went into effect in November: They can only be provided at a customer’s request.) • All New Jersey retail, grocery, and pharmacy stores, along with restaurants and other food service businesses, are banned from giving out single-use plastic bags, as well as foam containers, with exceptions. Trash can liners, heavy-duty contractor disposal bags and other plastic garbage bags will still be available, as will sandwich and freezer bags. Again, we’re mostly talking about the smaller carry-out versions. There are some caveats. Paper bags such as those for lawn care or leaf collection will still be sold in grocery

stores and other big-box retailers like Home Depot. The Styrofoam ban includes vegetable trays and egg cartons. (Joining that list in 2024 will be containers for raw meat, poultry or fish and small cups of two ounces or less for hot foods.) Now about that dog doo. Small plastic bags you may already have at home can be used for that purpose – or for kitty litter – as well as for bathroom trash. But once you run out, you’ll need other options like biodegradable bags; small paper ones; newspaper; composting; or possibly flushing the waste, according to nj.com. Other plastic exemptions are bags used to wrap meat, produce bags for fruits and vegetables and other loose items, deli bags for sliced or prepared foods like lunch meat, dry-cleaning bags and newspaper bags. (That last one will come in handy for the dog doo, too.) For more information on the ban, visit nj.gov. For a list of businesses impacted and items banned, go to https://nj.gov/dep/plastic-ban-law/ docs/ list-of-establishments-banneditems.pdf

Seeds of history: Bank helps preserve area fruits, vegetables Burlington County founder builds on lifetime of growing experience By MATTHEW SHINKLE The Sun When Jeff Quattrone was growing up in Turnersville in the 1960s, his father started a garden in the backyard filled with fruits and vegetables. Over the course of that childhood, organic gardening and preserving what his family grew in the garden each harvest became a way of life for Quattrone. Although much of the products came from already grown plants moved to the soil in their family garden, he grew increasingly interested in the process of both growing food and recognizing the differences between the unique varieties of fruits and vegetables. Nearly a half-century later, Quattrone is the proud founder of the Library Seed Bank, an organization he started in 2014 to

preserve fruits and vegetables native to the South Jersey area. “It felt like a great way to make my voice heard and make work for some change with something I feel very passionate about,” he said. Quattrone launched the bank following a year of research on the concept and logistics roles that seed libraries play across the United States, which at the time were a relatively new concept. “The goal of the Library Seed Bank is to connect the public to seed and agriculture history in New Jersey through seed libraries by bringing seeds back to the counties and states they originated in,” Quattrone said. “The local seed libraries provide a permanent home for this through community-based programs.” The seed bank provides li-

braries in South Jersey with archived collections of preserved seeds for fruits and vegetables that interested residents can request to grow at their homes. According to Quattrone, participating locations include all six branches of the Gloucester County Library System, the Monroe Township Free Library System and the Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences, as well as other entities. While each library branch or entity operates within its own limitations, Quattrone acts as a sort of consultant with the various locations that agree to serve as seed libraries across Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. He has assisted in the preservation and historical documentation of various fruits and vegetables native to the area, giving residents the abili-

ty to grow seeds that will thrive in the local environment. Since starting the seed bank, Quattrone has spoken at various community events both to share his knowledge on the topic and to gauge and generate interest in the topic. “It’s all about the public … They are essential in all of this,” he said. “My interest in connecting the public to seed libraries is the best way I’ve found to get people interested in saving certain seeds. “It’s something people have really started to embrace since I first started in 2014,” Quattrone added. “It’s grown so much over the past few years.” The topic of food sovereignty is one that’s also grown in recent years in light of the pandemic. Quattrone hopes that through his work, more families across South Jersey will

embrace the lifestyle, both for their own betterment but also to preserve the history of native fruits and vegetables. “I think there’s a lot of power in securing your own food and securing your own seeds, and sometimes that gets lost in all this,” he said. “With the quick shutdown that we saw take place when COVID emerged, there were over 600 communities that had their own seed libraries, and I’d say were ahead of the curve in a way … “ … There’s a real power in seeds and a lot of the public overlooks (it) at a quick glance,” Quattrone added, “but it’s a movement that's continuing to grow.” For more information on the Library Seed Bank and where to receive your own seeds, visit https://www.libraryseedbank.info/.

Tropicana Atlantic City to debut eight food and drink outlets this year By CHUCK DARROW For The Sun If Tropicana Atlantic City is looking for a new marketing slogan, “Let’s Eat!” will definitely work. That’s because between this month and the end of the year, the 41-year-old casino-hotel will be introducing eight new hospitality operations, five of which will offer food service. The quintet of eateries includes: *Wild Honey Smokehouse and Tavern: The 5,000-square-foot casual-dining restaurant showcases various regional barbeque styles from across the country (e.g. St. Louis, Memphis). It recently had its “soft opening;” the grand opening is set for Memorial Day weekend. *Ossu Japanese Tavern: The focus is on small-plate items like yakitori and sushi (opens Memorial Day weekend). *Hash House A Go Go: The popular national chain (there’s one at the Moorestown Mall) that’s celebrated for its “twisted farm food” and large breakfast menu (opens this summer). *The Royce Social Hall: Billed as a combination American beer hall and “adult rec room,” this 10,000-squarefoot space will offer casual, shareable dishes along with a variety of games and activities including ping-pong, bowling and shuffleboard. It will occupy the long-empty space that originally housed the ill-fated Sound of Philadelphia restaurant/performance venue (opens this fall). *il Verdi: Atlantic City’s third-longest continuously operating casino restaurant (after Capriccio at Resorts Casino-Hotel and Nero’s Italian Steakhouse at Caesars Atlantic City) will move from its smallish longtime home in a somewhat hidden corner of the casino floor to a much larger space overlooking the beach and ocean that was most recently home to celebri-chef Jose Garces’ Olon (opens this fall). The remaining three new spots are all adult hangouts: The Purple Zebra,

And, during the last two years, we’ve taken some time to step back and reevaluate our [overall] strategy.” Rippy added that while five of the operations are owned and operated by the Trop, three—Hash House A Go Go, Gin Rickey’s and Royce Social Hall—are from outside entities, and that finding the right match “took us a long time.” In addition to the changes at il Verdi, Tropicana patrons will notice that while Ossu is pretty much offering fare in line with the space’s previous tenant, the Garces-run Okatshe, the new dining room will be a lot easier for guests to find: Okatshe’s gimmick was that to enter it, patrons had to walk through what appeared to be a Japanese candy store (the restaurant was hidden behind the far wall). Rippy acknowledged this speakeasy-like approach was “cool,” but ultimately not practical, as it made the restaurant inaccessible to anyone who wasn’t already aware of its existence. As such, he said, “We’re going to tear off the former candy store and turn it into more of a formal vestibule, and move our hosts out front so they can talk to guests as they come by. You’ll be able to see directly into the restaurant rather than having to know what’s hidden back there.” Ultimately, Rippy suggested, the goal of the upgrades and additions is to return Tropicana to the operating philosophy it introduced in 2004, when it opened The Quarter, its Havanathemed retail, dining and entertainment complex. The idea, he said, was “one-stop. You come in, you have dinner, you have a nightclub, you can see a show and you can do everything underneath one roof. And I think we’ve gotten away from that over the last two years. And it’ll be nice to get back into the full swing of things, where we have as many offerings as we did before.”

community. This year will mark the organization's 15th fundraiser and the first with Studio 67 Medford. Therapeutic riding (equine assisted therapy) provides mstructured horsemanship programs that assist students in meeting their goals and developing independent skills such as increased strength, coordination, sensory integration, improved hand and eye coordination and expansion of focus and control. “It's a wonderful program,” Dispenza said, noting the center’s all-volunteer staff. Performances at the comedy night will feature Joe Pontillo, of AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, MTV, Sirius XM and the Amazon special “Delete Your

Account.” The headliner will be Sharon Simon, who has performed on “Saturday Night Live” and “The Wendy Williams Show.” “We all need a good laugh with the way the world is right now,” said Pollock. “When you’re on stage and can get a room full of people to laugh so hard their face hurts, it's exhilarating. “Knowing that you can help people temporarily forget their problems and the issues of the world and simply [make them] laugh makes it all worth it.” Doors for the comedy event open at 7 p.m and there will be a 50/50 raffle and a gift basket raffle.

Defensive-minded: Cinnaminson’s switch pays big dividends Last year’s move has junior goalie Brooke Sztendowicz excelling in the net By MATTHEW SHINKLE Sports Editor

Coming into the 2021-’22 season, Laura Curran already knew what Cinnaminson’s strength would be during the season. Before the start of her ninth season as head coach of the Pirates girls lacrosse team last year, Curran decided to shake things up and reshape the team's defensive scheme. Having traditionally played a man-to-man style defense throughout her time at Cinnaminson, much like most other teams across South Jersey, Curran looked to think outside the box for a defensive scheme that might better suit the team's new goalie. “We went from a man-to-man style defense like most teams typically play in the area to a zone, so we had to completely change the way that they thought about defense and how to defend in general,” Curran said. “They went from marking one girl to marking an area, and it took a lot of time to get it right,” she added, “but I’d say by midseason last year we had it down, and we only lost two seniors from last year's team, so we already had that down coming into this season.” The change was necessitated, the coach said, in part due to the team's new starting goalie last year, then-sophomore Brooke Sztenderowicz, a basketball player by heart. She had the chance to learn from Julia Charest, the team's three-year starting goalie before COVID canceled her senior season. Charest now plays at TCNJ.

MATTHEW SHINKLE/South Jersey Sports Weekly

Cinnaminson junior Brooke Sztendowicz is in the midst of her second season in net for the Pirates, having allowed the fewest goals of all teams in the Burlington County Scholastic League. Coaches and players say her defensive success is thanks to a recent change in the team’s scheme.

Curran said she was admittedly unsure of what to expect with Sztendowicz in net for her first season last year, but that the defensive scheme change would make it easier for the first-year varsity goalie to read defenses better while cutting down on potential shots. “Having a new goalie in there would obviously be something that other teams would try to capitalize on,” she added. “She and a few other players on our defense are basketball players so they have a good understanding of a zone defense, and implementing the scheme we did would try to limit high-percentage shots coming her way.”

In essence, the change would limit the number of isolation plays each game that might see a veteran or highly skilled offensive player beat a newer goalie. After an 11-4 season last year, Cinnaminson has picked right back up where it left off, going 12-2 in the season’s first 14 games as the regular season winds down. As of the end in its 14th game, Cinnaminson has allowed just 50 goals all season, good for the fewest in the Burlington County Scholastic League. Rancocas Valley, the only team ahead of Cinnaminson in the BCSL standings, has allowed the second-fewest goals so far this season, with

97 in 16 games. After getting comfortable at the high-school level last season, Sztenderowicz said coming into this year was much easier because she already understood how a zone defense is implemented on the lacrosse field, as opposed to the basketball court. “It definitely helped, it’s the same kind of concepts so it was easier already knowing where the ball is going to get swung around from and where the shots will mostly be coming from,” she said. While Cinnaminson has allowed the fewest goals in the BCSL so far this season, they’ve also scored the most on the other

side of the field, making their goalkeeper’s job even easier, something the junior said has been reassuring. “It’s so much easier knowing that the balls in good hands when we’re on offense and we as a team don’t make stupid turnovers or mistakes that often,” Sztendowicz noted. Senior Veronica Campbell leads the team in both goals and assists and is the team's leading contributor to success on the offensive side of the ball. Following the team's recent 19-6 win over Delran, she also set the program record for draw controls, something she didn’t know she was close to. “I was pretty caught off guard by it to be honest,” Campbell said. “I know that Grace [Frasso] was the one that had it before me, and I always thought she got so many draws. So it’s crazy to think that I somehow got more than she did now.” While the personal accolades and statistics come over the course of a season, Campbell said what's most important is winning, and she’s tried to just play the best she can in the offensive and defensive system the Pirates currently play. “Our defense has gotten a lot stronger the past two years, and that’s created in us giving up fewer goals and getting a lot more turnovers for us to move into transition and implement the plays that we have,” she added. “That’s really been a help for us. “We’re good at working together and making the best of our opportunities, so I hope we keep doing that moving forward.”

SOUTH JERSEY SPORTS WEEKLY

Moorestown wins Central/South Jersey Group 3 sectional title Quakers defeat defending champion Mainland by one stroke By MATTHEW SHINKLE Sports Editor

Sam Selverian had always considered himself a lacrosse player. He fell in love with the sport in first grade and never wavered from his focus on it each year – until COVID. “I have a buddy that plays on another high-school team in South Jersey and we started playing a lot after the pandemic, just as a way to get out,” Selverian said. “I always had a lot of fun with it and started to really prefer it over lacrosse to be honest, especially after my first two years [at Moorestown], where I just didn’t find myself enjoying lacrosse like I used to. “I sort of just fell out of love with [it] and I thought that I should try out golf instead,” he added. So instead of joining the lacrosse team at Moorestown High as he did his freshman and sophomore year, Selverian took up golf, unsure of what to expect. Earlier this month, Moorestown won the NJSIAA Central/ South Jersey Group 3 sectional title in yet another narrow victory during a season filled with nail-biting finishes for the Quakers. The team finished with a sectional final score of 338, defeating defending champion Mainland by a single stroke, while Princeton and Colts Neck each scored 342 on the day. Entering this season, head coach Tim O’Reilly was unsure of what to expect from his squad, with just two experienced returners back from last year. After securing two more victories in the 48 hours follow-

Special to South Jersey Sports Weekly

The Moorestown boys golf team won the NJSIAA Central/South Group 3 sectional title by a single stroke over Mainland at Deptford’s Riverwinds Golf and Tennis Club. Senior Bobby Donimy paced the Quakers with an individual score of 82.

ing the sectional match, Moorestown is now 11-0. “I was unsure of what to expect before the season started, just based on seeing who graduated last season,” O’Reilly said. “But come tryouts, I was pleasantly surprised with how talented some of the new guys seemed to be. “Even with that though, I honestly didn’t think we’d be sectional champions.” Moorestown had won four consecutive sectional titles in

the four seasons leading up to COVID, which canceled play in 2019-’20. The team then lost the 2020-’21 sectional title by a single stroke. For seniors on this year's team such as Bobby Dominy, it was a sweet feeling to once again earn the title after a long three years. “After we’d seen how we played in the matches leading up to sectionals, we knew we had a chance to win it, especially with how close we were last year,” Dominy said. “Everyone

just kept getting better over the course of the season leading up to this, including quite a few big victories, and we started to believe in ourselves more and more as the season went along.” Dominy led Moorestown with an 82 on the day at sectionals, good for fifth individually at the tournament. Other scorers for Moorestown included Selverian (82), Dan Cantwell (85) and Elvyn Liu (87). The narrow distance between the team’s first and last scorers

@SJSportsWeekly

reflects what O’Reilly said was a sectional title won because of an entire team effort, not just one standout golfer who led the pack. “We had four guys that all had pretty good scores, and that’s pretty big at sectionals,” he said. “We would not have won if we had a fourth player that laid an egg. It was truly a team effort. “To have four guys come up with solid scores like that is remarkable.”

MAY 18-24, 2022 — THE MEDFORD SUN

Opening day: Market kicks off season

continued from page 4 food vendors and 14 artists and crafters were featured at this year’s Opening Day farmers market, including past participants like the 1895 Organic Farm, Pinelands Produce, Durr’s Blue Box, the Soup Bar and Hoop House Bakery, and newcomers, such as the Black Sheep Farm, Sparrow Lake Farm and Truly Seasoned, a new food vendor. Opening Day also featured the West Jersey Rose Society selling roses and additional farms selling fresh cut flowers, hanging baskets, starter vegetable and herb plants, plus local artists and crafters with handcrafted designs and artwork for sale -- the perfect Mother’s Day gifts. There was also a live performance by Opus Soul and a cooking demonstration in the Agricultural Center’s farmhouse kitchen. “The farmers market is a great place for residents of all ages to come for a fun day outdoors at our beautiful Agricultural Center. It’s not to be missed,” Eckel said. Craft beer and liquor sales are also back after debuting last season. Marlton-based Zed’s Beer and Columbus-based Recklesstown Farm Distillery participated in Opening Day, and Burlington City’s Third State Brewery and Cherry Hill’s Forgotten Boardwalk Brewery will also be featured throughout the season. The alcohol sales are permitted under a law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy last year which al-

lowed the New Jersey Division of Alcohol Beverage Control to issue special seasonal permits to New Jersey breweries, distilleries or wineries to sell their products at farm markets. Alcohol sales will be for off-site consumption, though overage adults will be permitted to try a limited number of samples. “Zed’s Beer is a beloved local business in Evesham, and we think it’s wonderful that they and other small businesses are able to gain additional sales and exposure during the County’s Farmers Market,” said Evesham Deputy Mayor Heather Cooper. “It’s support like this that makes Burlington County such a great place to live and operate a business.” The center also features community gardens and demonstration gardens, field plots maintained by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Service and a commercial kitchen. “Burlington County’s support for farming and agriculture is well-known. We are the home to New Jersey’s first preserved farm, and we have more acres of farmland preserved than any county in New Jersey,” said Eckel. “The Agricultural Center is another example of our board’s commitment to ensuring agriculture remains an active and vibrant industry. Doing so not only helps our county’s farmers; it also maintains the high quality of life all our residents enjoy.”
