Around the Town What’s Your Take?

The Mabel Kay Senior Center’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner will be served on Sat Nov 21 at 2pm. What is your favorite item on the Thanksgiving dinner table?

• Dreary weather never deters the PGA’s NICHOLAS DENTINO from practicing his swing in front of his Glover Avenue home. Nick had a hard time naming one favorite dish on the Thanksgiving table. “Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy ... and mashed potatoes” are all at the top of his Thanksgiving wish list.

• Tatem Elementary students CATHERINE and MARY KELLY can’t wait for the holidays. On Thanksgiving, Catherine heads straight for “mom’s mashed potatoes,” while Mary always tries to get the first slice of pumpkin pie.

• What’s On found Evergreen Avenue residents, NICHOLAS (6) and GRACE (9) FIGLIOLI, leaving Collingswood’s Pop Shop. Each year, Nicholas savors “the brined turkey made by Aunt Sue.” Grace is always sure to save room for “my cousin Susan’s pumpkin pie.”

• ELAINE ZAFIRIADIS and son NICHOLAS (6), are both looking forward to Thanksgiving. Elaine reported that her “famous stuffing and sweet potatoes” are always fantastic. Nicholas loves pumpkin pie.

• Hawthorne Avenue’s BARBARA CAVACINI looks forward to “the stuffing and warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream,” while her daughters, OLIVIA (6) and EMMA (7), look forward to the birthday cake! Barbara explained, “my husband’s birthday is November 27, so we serve cake each Thanksgiving.” Happy birthday, Gene!

• Members of the CLARKE FAMILY have different opinions about the best Thanksgiving fare. CASEY (9) enjoys the “ham and the turkey.” Casey’s mother LISA loves stuffing, while her younger brother ALEX (7) can’t get enough pumpkin pie! The Clarke family is thankful for the support of the community in making September’s Charlie’s Fight Night, a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a huge success.

Make the season sparkle

 You can help Cooper University Hospital breast cancer patients sparkle this holiday season by supporting Sparkle For Life. A Haddonfield-based initiative, Sparkle For Life insures that a gift of jewelry is given to each Cooper breast cancer patient that is undergoing chemotherapy during the holiday season. Sparkle For Life was born when Emily Scattergood and Nadine Costantino set out on a neighborhood walk together. Scattergood had completed her breast cancer treatment in 2007. The daughter of a breast cancer survivor, Costantino tested negative for the breast cancer gene in 2008. As they discussed their personal experiences, they decided to try to brighten the holidays of local women battling the disease. On Tue Dec 1, Costantino and Scattergood will host a Lia Sophia jewelry event at Nadine’s home located at 54 Linden Avenue. Guests can purchase Lia Sophia jewelry which will be given directly to patients, or they can purchase jewelry for themselves and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Sparkle For Life. Monetary donations will be accepted and used to purchase jewelry gifts or to support Cooper Hospital’s efforts to keep patients comfortable during treatment. Two sessions of Sparkle For Life will be held. Visit for shopping and coffee between 9am and 1pm or shopping and a cocktail between 7 and 10pm. 616-2430; nadinecostantino;

Thanksgiving history 101

 Join the members of the Historical Society as they separate fact from fiction with an examination of the first Thanksgiving. During the November meeting of the Society, being held on Wed Nov 18 at 7:30pm at Greenfield Hall (343 Kings Highway East), Mercy Ingraham will present “The First Thanksgiving: Fact and Fiction.” An author and teacher of open-hearth cooking, Ingraham will discuss the misconceptions and assumptions we have about the first Thanksgiving. Attendees will find out what really happened during the first celebration based on original documents, paintings, and an eyewitness account. Ingraham is a retired nurse who specializes in historic food preparation. After researching a cookbook from the 1770’s, she co-authored the Colonial Burlington Cookbook. Ingraham will discuss her experiences and talk about foods which are appropriate for a harvest home celebration. Refreshments will be served after the meeting. Members of the Society are admitted free to Society programs. Non-members will be charged $4. For more information, call Greenfield Hall at 429-7375.

News from Haddon Fire Co #1

Time Out for Safety

• Did you remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon-monoxide detectors when you changed your clocks at the end of Daylight Savings Time? If not, it’s not too late. Do it now! Don’t take the risk that the batteries will be flat when you need them most. • Do you know senior citizens who do not have smoke detectors in their homes? If so, urge them to call us. We may be able to help. • Do you have carbon monoxide detectors in your home? They may save your life. • Is your house number visible from the curb? Is it visible at night? In an emergency, firefighters (and police officers and ambulance drivers) need to be able to locate your home quickly. We might not be able to do that if your house number is too small, or hidden from view by shrubs or bushes. • Does your doorbell work? • Does your family have an emergency escape plan? Have you practiced it? • Are there piles of leaves in the street? (There shouldn’t be – it’s illegal.) Do you park your car on top of them? (You shouldn’t.) A hot engine in contact with dry leaves can cause a fire. • For other fire safety information, contact Haddon Fire Company #1 at 856-429-4308. Always remember to dial 9-1-1 in case of emergency.

As a Twitter user, you can post updates, read the updates of others (HaddonfieldNJ, for example) and send public or private replies to friends, family, co-workers, and other Twitterers. When you sign up to follow HaddonfieldNJ on, you’ll receive instant alerts about breaking Haddonfield news, hot deals downtown, election results, lost dogs, sports results, snow days, and impending deadlines: “Haddonfield property taxes are due Tue Sep 1 by 4:30p. Miss the deadline and you’ll pay interest from Aug 1” (an actual tweet, sent from on Thursday, August 27). What you won’t get from HaddonfieldNJ is idle chatter ... just news you can use!
