The King’s Road (a musical)

Written by Haddonfield’s Harry T. Kaufmann for the 250th celebration in 1963 and reprised in 1975 for the nation’s bicentennial, this delightful musical follows the lives of Mary Hopkins, Joshua Cresson, Jonas Cattell and others as they discover patriotism and fall in love amidst the intrusion of the British and Hessian armies. With the Indian King Tavern as a backdrop, the lovable innkeeper Hugh Creighton and his sprightly chambermaid Katie Muldoon play host to generals and troops, all of whom find themselves as guests of the Quaker village while the war rages on around them. Filled with singing, dancing, marching and merriment, this poignant tribute to the history of Haddonfield will touch the audience’s hearts once again. Haddonfield Plays and Players at the Haddon Fortnightly. Dave Stavetski: • Saturday, October 5 (Raindate: Sunday, October 6)

Look good, and feel great, at Frügal

 Frügal Thrift & Vintage (740 Haddon Ave, Collingswood) is a donation-based thrift boutique. Sales and donations benefit a different local charity each month. In September, two-percent of the shop’s sales will benefit the Collingswood Library. In October, two-percent of the sales will help Prayers and Poinsettias provide scholarships to students whose mothers have breast cancer. Donations which are not sold after several months are donated to charitable clothing efforts.

How does your poetry stack up?

 Poets – and those admire the literary arts from the comfort of their armchairs – are encouraged to take part in The Retrospect’s Best of the Fest Book Spine Poetry Contest. Create a poem by stacking book titles to make a poem, verse, or story – the possibilities are limitless. You can use books from your own collection or books from the library or a bookstore. Arrange ... then rearrange! Your stack’s unique statement may be serious or humorous. Document your poem by taking a photo. Your photo entry must be delivered to the Collingswood Library – or e-mailed to – by Tue Oct 1. Judging will take place at the Collingswood Book Festival on Sat Oct 5. For contest rules, visit

Consider the Job Pool

 Soon summer will fade to memory and fall leaves will become our reality. With fall – and winter! – comes raking and shoveling, as well as other seasonal tasks. Students from the Collingswood Student Job Pool are eager to help with tasks like yard clean-ups, garage organizing, planting, weeding, and basic painting. For most household tasks, rates start at $10 per hour, per student. When the snow begins to fall, students will be available for shoveling at a rate of $15 per hour. (Note: Call in advance of predicted snow to schedule.) As members of the Job Pool, students are coached on job-keeping attitudes and practices; reliability and service are stressed. For further information, or to schedule a student to work, call 240-1944.

Firefighters hit the streets

› To encourage residents to maintain their smoke detectors, the Collingswood Fire Department will resume its voluntary home inspection program. All residents should have working fire detectors at ceiling level, on each floor of their home, including the basement and attic, and in every bedroom. Smoke detectors should be tested monthly and batteries should be replaced every six months. Missing a detector? Crews will replace batteries and hang free smoke detectors (up to two) when they visit your home. The uniformed firefighters will also answer questions and discuss “pre-incident planning.” If you’re out when the firefighters knock on your door, no worries! You can visit the station and pick up two free detectors at any time. 854-7447
