Learn to repurpose – or recycle! – almost everything at Collingswood’s Green Festival and Haddon Township’s Green Event, both on Sat Apr 20.

Name your favorite repurposed or recycled item.

• Collingswood-native DAN MERRYFIELD has made repurposing his business! As a solar energy consultant for Trinity Solar, Dan encourages clients to use sunlight as an energy source for their homes and businesses. His family’s home in Haddon Township uses solar energy. “I love the sun!” he exclaimed. Look for Dan and Trinity Solar at Haddon Township’s upcoming Green Event.

• GRAHAM D UDLICK (10) and JACKSON LUTZ (10) share out-grown sports gear and clothes. They coined the term “GrahamMe-Downs” to refer to the items Graham passes on to Jackson. The pair attend Strawbridge School in Haddon Township.

• RYAN FEELEY (10),a nd BRANDON (10) and MIRA (7) HASS do their best to repurpose and recycle. “I use pencils made from recycled newspaper!” announced Ryan. Brandon designs school projects with vintage Legos given to him by a neighbor. Mira reported that she recently “planted seeds in a discarded plastic water bottle.”

• The FLEMINGS: MAGGIE (8), CLARE (10), and MOLLY re-use and repurpose found furniture, books, and “bottle caps at Studio Luloo!” They are pictured enjoying Haddon Township’s Strawbridge School Skate Night.

• Siblings CLAUDIA (7), JACKSON (10), and BENJAMIN (3) love to repurpose everyday items. “I like to use old Girl Scout cookie boxes as play boxes,” announced Claudia. Jackson always uses recycled paper “to make airplanes and origami!” The family remembers to celebrate Earth Day each year – it’s Benjamin’s birthday!

• Westmont mother-daughter duo AMANDA and JUDY GROELING try to think outside of the box when it comes to recycling and repurposing. Judy’s favorite repurposed item is “a little blue bar” she bought at a yard sale and kept for six years ... eventually she found a new use for it when building an addition to her home. Amanda plans to start a worm-farm this summer. (Worms ‘recycle’ kitchencompost, creating rich soil for the garden.)

Take a peek at Perkins

 Perkins Center For The Arts and PNC Arts Alive will present an exhibit titled “Altered Spaces” at the arts center (30 Irvin Ave, Collingswood) from Sat Apr 13 thru Sat May 25. Altered Spaces feature the work of David Gamber, Phillip Rychert, and Jackie Sandro. Installations range in media from clay, to plastic bottles, to wood. A Meet the Artists Reception will take place on Sat Apr 13 from 6 to 9pm. Stop by during your 2nd Saturday stroll. Gamber, Rychert, and Sandro approach art in different ways. Visitors can expect a great deal of variety. “I work with clay because it works for me and no other reason. I like the way it moves in my hands and allows me to create the forms I want. I started out as a vessel maker and to this day find vessels in one form or another serve my conceptual ideas,” said Gamber. Jackie Sandro is a ceramic artist with a sense of humor. “I guess my personality comes out in my work, and I tend to be a little sarcastic ... I love making it quirky,” she reported. Rychert – a self-taught artist who meshes many mediums – explained, “I am creating three-dimensional pieces that are part architectural, part sculptural, and part painted illusion.” The Altered Spaces exhibition and reception are made possible through the PNC Arts Alive initiative. PNC Arts Alive is a five-year, $5 million investment from the PNC Foundation which supports the public’s access to visual and performing arts groups.

 If you’ve ever searched for your seat in a dimly lit auditorium while silently pleading with the theatre gods, “Please, let this show be good,” then you owe it to yourself to see the Ritz Theatre’s rendition of The Drowsy Chaperone, a show created with a single goal ... to entertain. Written as a valentine to the larger-than-life musical comedies of the Roaring Twenties, The Drowsy Chaperone has received numerous Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards since its debut on Broadway in 2006. The show-within-ashow spins to life when a die-hard theatre fan places his favorite cast album on his turntable. This action transforms his drab and lonely apartment into a glitzy Broadway stage – the perfect backdrop for the rollicking tale of a showgirl who endeavors to find, and keep, her true love. The musical romp will take center stage beginning with a preview show on Thu Apr 18 at 7:30pm. Shows will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8pm thru May 18. Wednesday night shows will take place at 7:30pm on May 1 and on May 15. Sunday matinees will take place thru May 12 at 2pm. An additional matinee will take place on Tue May 7 at 10am.

A prescription for a safe community

ďŁ&#x17E; In an effort to protect the well-being of the boroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens and the environment, a Medicine Collection Day will take place at Collingswood Police Department, 735 Atlantic Ave N, on Sat Apr 27 from 10am to 2pm. Collingswood residents are encouraged to turn in their unwanted prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, ointments, sprays, inhalers, creams, vials, and pet medications. Turning in unwanted medications will help keep drugs out of the hands of substance abusers, prevent childhood poisonings, and protect local waterways. Following collection, medications will be disposed of safely. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are taken from medicine cabinets at home or from family and friends. Each day, approximately 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. Unused medications should never be flushed or poured down the drain. Water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove all medicines from the waste stream. Various levels of antibiotics, anti-depressants, veterinary drugs, birth control hormones, and other substances have been detected in waterways across the United States. Research suggests that hormones found in pharmaceuticals may cause abnormalities in the reproductive cycles of fish. In addition, antibiotics in the environment may contribute to the development of drug-resistant bacteria. This medicine collection event is for Collingswood residents only. Do not bring illegal drugs, biohazardous material, needles/sharps, or personal care products (shampoo, soaps, lotions, sunscreens, etc). For further information, call 854-1313 or 8541901

 In an effort to safeguard those who choose to travel by foot, the Borough of Collingswood is kicking off a Pedestrian Safety Initiative this spring. The program, titled “Stop at the Sign or Pay the Fine,” will remind drivers to follow pedestrian safety regulations, by punishing those who put pedestrians at risk. The program mandates the enforcement of traffic laws which curb speeding and discourage illegal u-turns. Drivers will be required to come to full stops at signs and obey crosswalk laws. The Borough will also improve signage and hire parttime workers this summer to repaint crosswalks throughout town. “We’re known as a walkable town ... so we want to keep residents and visitors as safe as possible. We get a lot of feedback on this issue. It’s a major concern for us especially in the spring when people flock to town for warm-weather events, shopping, and dining,” said Collingswood Mayor Jim Maley. The Borough already staffs crossing guards; it has installed bump outs and other traffic-calming devices in the downtown along Haddon Ave. The “Stop at the Sign or Pay the Fine” program will increase the current budget for other trafficcalming measures.

Jazz Bridge pulls strings for local musicians

The 10th season of the First Thursday Collingswood Jazz Series is in full swing. Jazz Bridge, Philadelphia’s most prolific jazz presenter, continues to sponsor high-caliber neighborhood concerts in Collingswood. Jazz Bridge was established by a group of compassionate musicians and fans who remain committed to helping area jazz and blues musicians in times of crisis by providing confidential and caring support in a manor which safeguards each musician’s dignity. Through concert-ticket sales, donations, and grants, Jazz Bridge is able to provide assistance to musicians who are coping with personal, financial, and legal issues. Concert events take place at the Collingswood Community Center (30 Collings Ave), on the first Thursday of each month, beginning at 7:30pm. Next up: Harpist Gloria Galante will dominate the stage on Apr 4. Galante has toured internationally as a solo artist, a chamber musician, and as a member of various ensembles. She composes original works, transcriptions, and therapeutic pieces for the harp. She is also the director of the Harp Ensemble at West Chester University’s College of the Visual and Performing Arts, the director of the university’s annual Harp Festival, and the school’s Harp Camp. Galante is a teaching artist for the prestigious Pennsylvania Council of the Arts. Concert admission will cost $10 per person ($5 for students). First Thursday jazz events are BYOB; free soft drinks are served. Remember: April is Jazz Month!
