around the Towns What’s Your Take?

• ALEXIS FEASTER keeps it simple when it comes to holiday songs. “I like the song ‘It’s Christmas’ ... because it’s Christmas!” she exclaimed. Alexis lives and works in the Collingswood area.

The Collingswood Holiday Parade will dominate Haddon Ave on Sat Nov 24. “Jingle All the Way” is this year’s theme.

Name your favorite holiday tune.

• Collingswood’s FRANK SUTTON enjoyed ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ by John Lennon long before he became a fan of the Fab Four. “I liked the song as a kid. When I was about twenty-five, I became a Beatles fan and realized that it was a John Lennon song,” he explained.

• BONNIE KITCHING quickly answered, “I love ‘O Holy Night.’ It brings tears to my eyes. I just wish I could sing!” Bonnie is pictured with her canine pal Emmie.

• LOIS MAYNARD and DOUGLAS McVARISH have similar tastes. “I like ‘Go Tell It On the Mountain,’” announced Douglas. Lois said, “I like carols much more than the commercial songs. But I’ve had enough of ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ and ‘Frosty the Snowman!’” she admitted.

• Collingswood’s LARRY TISBY reported, “When I think of Christmas, I think of Nat King Cole singing ‘White Christmas.’ It was always playing at family gatherings when everyone was spending time together.”

• JOANNE SKORDOS likes the music from the film ‘White Christmas.’ “I guess it shows my age, but it always makes me think of Christmas ... the movie airs every year.” Joanne works at Bobby Chez in Collingswood.

 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). PFLAG is made up of individuals who have come to terms with a gay/ lesbian/bisexual/transgendered (LGBT) 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. On Mon Nov 26, Bob Pileggi will present “Mindful Witness: A Way of Authentically Connecting.” Program participants will learn fundamental aspects of mindfulness – the practice of paying attention to thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations – in order to learn what is behind their words. The goal of the program is to teach participants how to speak more compassionately and effectively. Pileggi has worked and volunteered with LGBT civil rights groups for nearly 20 years in various capacities. Pileggi is committed to facilitating selfawareness, empowered self-expression, and authentic connections between people. He is an ordained Interfaith minister, a certified yoga instructor, and he has been trained to teach Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction techniques at the Mindfulness Institute of Thomas Jefferson University. The presentation will be followed by a special support group meeting facilitated by Pileggi. Refreshments will be served. Those who attend PFLAG meetings are 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 Dec 17, Jan 28, and Feb 25.

› Each year, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Camden County – headquartered in Haddon Township – participates in National Adoption Day. Adoption Day will be celebrated on Fri Nov 16 throughout Camden County. National Adoption Day is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care who are waiting to find permanent, loving families. Over the years, National Adoption Day has helped nearly 40,000 children move from foster care to forever families by emphasizing the importance of finalizing adoptions. In Camden County, it is anticipated that nearly 60 children will be adopted on Nov 16. Each year, CASA works to provide a special experience for newly adopted children and their families on National Adoption Day. Your support is needed! Sought items include snacks, juice boxes, coloring books, crayons, games, books, and stuffed animals. These items will be arranged in a special reception room for the children and their adoptive families. Monetary donations are always appreciated. Donations can be dropped off at CASA of Camden County, Inc., 216 Haddon Ave, Suite 608, Westmont, 08108. Pick-ups may be arranged by calling 858-4488.

Make the season bright!

 Volunteers of America Delaware Valley (VOADV) needs the community’s help in giving joy this holiday season to families and seniors in need. Individuals and businesses are invited to adopt a family or senior, providing them with toys, winter clothing, and food. Last year VOADV was able to provide gifts to more than 300 families (including more than 1,000 children) thanks to its partners and donors from the community. With the added support of Philadelphia’s Ben FM, Adopt a Family is expected to grow creating a greater need for donors. Those who adopt will have an opportunity to chose a family or senior based on profiles. They will be sent a wish list by Volunteers of America Delaware Valley. Each donor is asked to provide each child with a toy and an outfit and the family with a gift card to purchase a holiday meal. Any cash donations will be combined to purchase clothing, toys, and food. “Our families look forward to Adopt a Family every year,” said Manoucheka Emmanuel, director of the Eleanor Corbett House family shelter. “It’s wonderful to feel the support of the community and see the magic of Christmas in the children’s faces.” Donations can be sent or dropped off at the Volunteers of America Delaware Valley (235 White Horse Pike, Collingswood). Monetary donations can be mailed or given online. For more information on adopting a family – or if you are part of a family in need – go to, call Jynette Hernandez at 854-4660 x137, or e-mail Volunteers of America Delaware Valley is the Greater Philadelphia affiliate of a national nonprofit, faith-based organization founded in 1896.

AARP Tax-Aide service is provided by volunteers who are trained to answer questions and prepare Federal and New Jersey tax returns and Property Tax Reimbursement forms. The Tax-Aide program is currently seeking volunteer tax counselors. Volunteers will complete a self-study course, attend training sessions, and complete a take-home test during December 2012 and January 2013. During tax season, volunteers will provide counseling services at Rohrer Library and Collingswood Public Library, as well as at other locations throughout Camden County.

› 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
