Take a musical journey with Pippin  Join the High School Drama Club in early March for its revival of Stephen Schwartz’s modern classic Pippin. Pippin tells the tale of the young son of King Charlemagne as he embarks on a quest to find true happiness. His search leads him down different paths: academia, the military, politics, and family. Pippin includes Broadway favorites like “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” and “With You.” According to Director Scott Glading, “It’s really the story of Everyman ... well Everyperson. We have all been Pippin at some point and time in our lives – some of us still are.” Shows will take place in the High School Auditorium on Thu Mar 4, Fridays Mar 5 and Mar 12, and Saturdays Mar 6 and Mar 13. Tickets cost $10 each. Shows will begin at 7:30pm. For advance tickets, call Angela Marcello or Carol Barbano at 429-3960.

Around the Town What’s Your Take?

Watch a young man’s journey of self discovery unfold during the High School Drama Club’s production of Pippin in March. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

• You may recognize Wayside Lane resident, KELSIE YOWLER, from numerous fitness videos. She explained, “I always wanted to work in health and fitness ... as a child I wanted to be a gym teacher, like my favorite teacher Mrs Martin.” Kelsie’s five-yearold son, AUDEN, wants to be a baseball player just like his dad.

• Newborn CONOR COUGHLIN hasn’t formulated a career plan yet, but he was heard saying that he hopes to be as good looking his father, CARL. Congratulations Maureen! • Haddonfield Pediatrics medical assistants, ROXANNE BERLE and BROOKE UBELE, had very different aspirations. Roxanne laughed, “I wanted to be a lawyer; I never lost a fight with my mom.” Brooke stated, “I wanted to be a biologist because I wanted to work with animals.”

• As a child, JIM FOLEY didn’t picture himself as an Assistant Vice President at PNC Bank. “I wanted to be a pro basketball player, but I was too short,” he admitted. Teller Supervisor LISA SPAGNOLIA said, “I remember really wanting to be an elementary school teacher.”

• Local pediatric dental icon ROBERT GERSH, known to legions of patients as DR BOB, revealed, “I always wanted to be a dentist. My father sold dental supplies, so I spent a lot of time visiting dental offices with him. It’s been a wonderful career.”

• A physician at Haddonfield Pediatrics, CLAIRE CALTABIANO reported, “I always wanted to be a doctor.”

A Borough tradition: Number the Stars

 Did you know that Plays & Players was the first theatre in the Delaware Valley to premiere Number the Stars more than 10 years ago? Believing that the story’s message remains vitally important, Plays & Players will bring Number the Stars to the stage again in March. The stage version of Number the Stars was adapted from Lois Lowry’s Newbery Award-winning book. The show, set in 1943 Copenhagen, tells the story of 10-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her family and how they risked their lives to save Annemarie’s friend Ellen Rosen from the Nazis. Shows will take place on Tue Mar 9 thru Thu Mar 11 and Tue Mar 16 thru Thu Mar 18 at 10am. Evening shows will be held on Wednesdays Mar 10 and Mar 17 at 7:30pm. Admission costs $10. Call 429-8139 or go to to purchase tickets.



The Police Department reports that charges have been filed against a Camden resident in connection with a number of burglaries in the business district. The break-ins took place in late January during the late evening or early morning hours. In most cases, a small window adjacent to the front door lock was broken. The perpetrator presumably reached inside to open the door. Danny Wiles, 46, has been charged with four counts of burglary, four counts of theft, and one count of criminal mischief. He is being held in the Camden County Jail.


The Commissioners have accepted the application of Donald M. Carmody for membership in Haddon Fire Company No. 1. The Commissioners remind residents and those who work in town that the Fire Company welcomes opportunities to speak with interested parties about the rewards of volunteer service with the second oldest volunteer fire company in continuous service in the USA. Call Chief Joe Riggs at 856-429-4308. During 2009, the company accepted six new members as fully fledged firefighters, as well as six high school-age participants in the Explorer program.


Haddon Fire Company No. 1 is encouraging the owners of businesses in Haddonfield to consider installing the “Knox Box” rapid entry system. The Knox Box, which is usually installed on an outside wall near an entry door, typically contains entrance door keys, access cards, elevator keys, and many other items that are of use to firefighters in an emergency. The boxes can be opened only with the Fire Company’s master key. With the Knox Box, emergency personnel do not have to wait for a building’s owner or manager to arrive in order to gain access. The contents of the Knox Box enable them to enter a building without (in most cases) having to use force on doors or windows. The benefits are obvious. Several property owners in Haddonfield have installed the Knox Box on their buildings. Members of the Fire Company stand ready to demonstrate the system to other property owners who are interested. Call Tim Green at 856-429-4308. Detailed information is available at


The Police Department reminds residents and others who drive in Haddonfield that using a hand-held cell phone while driving is illegal in New Jersey. (The fine is $130.) The consequences were demonstrated recently when a vehicle traveling on Haddon Avenue struck a parked car, spun around, and struck another parked car. The police report noted “heavy damage” to all three vehicles. The driver told police that when her cell phone rang, she “looked down to see who was calling.” She said she “did not know what happened next.”


The money the Borough of Haddonfield uses to run the town comes from three main sources: local property taxes, state aid, and “other.” As state aid shrinks, as cost continue to rise, and as the pressure to keep taxes down becomes even greater, municipalities throughout New Jersey are paying increased attention to the “other” sources of revenue. The more they secure from these “other” non-tax sources, the less they need to raise in property taxes. In recent years, Haddonfield has been very successful in obtaining grants from federal and state agencies (for roadworks, for example), and in winning cash awards (for recycling, for example). All department heads are continually “on the lookout” for new opportunities. The Commissioners frequently receive suggestions from residents and business owners about potential sources of nontax revenue. The one most commonly mentioned is speeding tickets. “If the police would only patrol Grove Street around the clock, they’d clean up,” is a typical and frequent comment. This is one of those suggestions that seems like a “no-brainer.” Unfortunately, it’s not as good as it sounds. The problem is that police departments are prohibited from using fines as a revenue-raising device. A fine is intended, primarily, to be a penalty for breaking a law. In some cases, the magnitude of a fine may be set to serve also as a deterrent. (Example: $130 for using a hand-held cell phone while driving.) If a judge were to determine that a police department’s primary motivation in issuing a large number of speeding tickets in a relatively short span of time was to raise revenue for the municipal coffers, it’s possible that all of the summonses issued during the operation would be dismissed. The financial result for the municipality would be an increase in costs, rather than in revenue. A related problem – which most are generally not aware of – is that Haddonfield gets to keep only a fraction of the revenue it takes in from fines. Some examples: • Parking prohibited at all times, or during certain hours. The fine is $23. Haddonfield keeps just $5.50. • Speeding 10 to 14 mph above the limit. The fine is $95. Haddonfield keeps just $33. • Failure to exhibit driver’s license or insurance card. The fine is $180. Haddonfield keeps $33. Once again, the prospect of raising a significant amount of money from what appears to be an “obvious” source can make the heart beat a little faster. Unfortunately, the excitement is short-lived. The Commissioners welcome input from residents and business owners on these and other matters. The Borough’s Web site – – provides an easy way to submit suggestions. Click on “Contact the Borough” at the bottom left of the home page. Other contact information for the Commissioners may be found in the Town Calendar and in the back of each issue of What’s On Haddonfield.

 The warm days of summer are months away, but planning for the Japan Exchange has already begun! Japanese students are set to visit the Borough in July and August. The Haddonfield Japan Exchange – an organization that promotes an annual exchange program between students from the High School and Kasukabe Girls High School in Japan – is looking for families to host the visiting young women and their adult chaperones. The Exchange committee has assembled a varied itinerary for their Japanese guests. Plans include tours of Philadelphia and Washington DC; day trips to Stone Harbor, Rowan University, and the Cherry Hill Mall; and parties, cookouts, and volunteer activities at the Haddonfield Home. Because all of the students who are coming from Japan are young women, the ideal host family is one in which there is a teenage female. It is the responsibility of the host family to provide accommodations and some meals for the visiting student, as well as occasional transportation. For more information, contact the Haddonfield Japan Exchange Director, Bill Brown, at BillBrown08033@aol.

 An organ concert, featuring Erik Meyer of Erie PA, will take place at Grace Church on Sun Mar 21 at 4pm. Meyer, a Collingswood native, began his organ studies at the age of thirteen. He studied with the Lutheran pastor, organist, and composer, J. Bert Carlson. Meyer has won several organ and composition competitions, including the highly competitive 2006 and 2008 National Young Artist Competition in Organ Performance, sponsored by the American Guild of Organists. He is an adjunct faculty member at Mercyhurst College where he teaches organ. Meyer will perform “Fanfare” by Leo Sowerby, an original work titled “Six Sketches on Children’s Hymns,” “Introduction and Passacaglia in F Minor” by Max Reger, “Gospel Prelude on ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’” by William Bolcom, and “Five Dances” by Calvin Hampton. The organ concert will be the fifth program in the Church’s Arts at Grace series. A free-will offering will be accepted at the door. For more information, go to or call 429-0007.
