 Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians & Gays – also known as PFLAG – generally meets on the fourth Monday of each month, from 6:30 to 9pm, at the Collingswood Public Library (771 Haddon Ave). On Oct 22 PFLAG will welcome Steven Goldstein and Kim Otto, of Garden State Equality, who will discuss bullying. Garden State Equality was instrumental in designing the AntiBullying Bill of Rights and led the historic statewide campaign for its passage. In January 2011, Governor Chris Christie signed the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights into law. In December 2011, the U.S. Department of Education issued a study ranking New Jersey’s anti-bullying law #1 in the nation. Today, law makers in many states are looking to New Jersey’s AntiBullying Bill of Rights as a model for legislation. Boasting 107,500 members, Garden State Equality is currently the state’s largest civil rights organization (gardenstateequality. org). PFLAG is made up of individuals who have come to terms with a gay/lesbian/bisexual/ transgendered family member as well as those who are seeking to better understand a friend or relative’s sexuality. No one is turned away from PFLAG meetings. All questions are valid. Those who attend PFLAG meetings will be given the opportunity to engage in dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity. PFLAG’s goal is to increase tolerance for diversity. Future meetings will be held on Nov 26 and Dec 17.

› Collingswood’s Second Saturday committee aims to pack Haddon Ave each month with the region’s most talented artisans and musicians. Month after month, Collingswood hosts Second Saturday – a free, openair arts extravaganza – featuring the work of jewelers, potters, crafters, and painters. Organizers are searching for artists to show their work; there is no fee and no pre-registration required. Second Saturday artisans showcase their work along Haddon Avenue’s sidewalks from 6 to 9pm. Second Saturday offers artists a bustling commission-free venue. During warm-weather months, visitors often stroll the avenue late into the evening. Organizers choose a bi-monthly headline installation but artists are not required to follow that month’s theme. Artists are invited to set up anywhere on along Haddon Avenue on the sidewalk, making sure room is left for pedestrians to pass. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis unless an artist is partnering with a business; artists are encouraged to get clearance from nearby store owners before setting up. Set up begins at 5pm on Second Saturdays. Each artist is responsible for setting up and removing their easels, tables, chairs, and/or equipment. Musical performances remain an integral part of the Second Saturday scene. Second Saturdays offer groups and musicians unparalleled exposure. Performances are non-paying but tip jars are permitted. Interested performers must contact Music Chairman Sam Caruso at Unscheduled performers will be asked to leave. Participation details for artists and musicians are available at
