Around the Towns Town What’s Your Take?

• Reading Recovery teacher NANCY KILLELEA had a hard time deciding on her favorite market items. “I look for fresh fruit, flowers, and baked goods,” she explained. Nancy is looking forward to returning to Lizzie Haddon School in the fall.

Shop at a local farmers’ market and you’re guaranteed fresh food and a good time! What do you look for first when you visit a farmers’ market?

• Owners of The Village Cheese Shop in Haddon Heights, ETHEL and BRETT HARRISON, head straight for “the Jersey tomatoes and the Silver Queen Corn” when visiting a farmers’ market.

• The Friends School Summer Camp Staff members head in different directions when visiting a farmers’ market. JACKI TREZZA looks for fresh flowers. Camp Director PAT SACCHETTI reported, “I head right for the Jersey tomatoes.” Newlywed KARLA O’CONNELL goes to the market seeking blueberries. Congratulations Teacher Karla!

• Business owner JOE RAINER lets the seasons dictate his produce choices. “Right now corn is in season so I look for that. I also look for peppers and onions,” he stated.

• Haddon Township’s RUTH LEININGER was found serving breakfast with a smile at The Village Cheese Shop in Haddon Heights. “I look for the Silver Queen Corn – it’s the best – and peaches and tomatoes. Peaches are great right now,” she said.

• Haddon Township resident CINDY TURKOT owns Freshest Flowers in Haddon Heights. For Cindy, shopping is all about prioritizing. “First I head for the coffee – then I scope out the fresh vegetables and fruits,” she responded.

Teacher and students to be honored

Get ready for some family fun!

 High School science teacher, Ron Smith, along with his environmental studies students, will be honored at the Camden County Freeholders’ meeting on Thu Aug 20 at 7pm at Borough Hall. The High School’s environmental science students have worked tirelessly to organize and execute restoration projects to improve ecosystem function within the Camden County Parks system. In the past year partnerships were formed between Smith’s students, Camden County Parks, the Environmental Commission, and the Parks Conservancy which led to improvements at Hopkins Pond. On Aug 20, Smith and his students will be recognized for their contributions to this restoration project.

 Clear your calendar for a little family time at the First Baptist Church (23 Frazer Ave). Grab the kids and get ready for some fun! On Sun Aug 23 at 5pm, the Church will host Splash Night.

Q: “When will my child lose his/her baby teeth?” A: Children begin losing their teeth as early as age 5.

 On Sun Jul 19, a fire destroyed the twin home of two Township families. While everyone escaped without serious injury, both families are now displaced from their homes. The Township is asking residents for their assistance in helping the families get back on their feet. Gift certificates are needed for purchasing food, clothing, and household items. Gift-card donations are being collected at the Community Activities Office (10 Reeve Ave). Also, neighbors have planned a benefit to assist the Perry family with expenses related to the fire. A dinner will be held at the Coastline Restaurant (1240 Brace Road, Cherry Hill) on Tue Aug 18. The event will include $1 drinks, a buffet from 6 to 8pm, a 50/50, and a raffle. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $10 at Brewers Towne Tavern, 239 Haddon Avenue. Tickets can also be purchased at the door or by contacting Courtney Myers at 745-8022 or or Melissa Young at 8692038 or Donated goods and services are being sought for the raffle.

Bleeding gums is an early indicator of gingivitis,

or swollen gums, usually caused by plaque and/ or calculus accumulated under the gumline. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to bone loss (periodontal disease) and eventual tooth loss. Gingivitis can be reversed by proper brushing and flossing within a few weeks. If bleeding persists two to three weeks, consult your dentist. Email all questions to:

Charlie’s Fight Night 2009

 It’s round six in Charlie Clarke’s fight against Cystic Fibrosis! The sixth annual Charlie’s Fight Night will be held on Fri Sep 25, from 7pm to 12m, in Citizens Bank Park’s Diamond Club in Philadelphia. Charlie Clarke is a 12-year-old Haddonfield Middle School student. In most ways Charlie is just like his peers. However, since being diagnosed with CF about five years ago, Charlie has had to adhere to strict treatment protocols in order to maintain his health. Charlie’s commitment to staying healthy has allowed him to succeed in both school and sports (soccer, basketball, flag football, and baseball). Charlie and his parents, Lisa and Jim, began Charlie’s Fight shortly after Charlie was diagnosed. Since that time, the Charlie’s Fight Committee has raised over 1 million dollars to fight CF. Committee members hope to raise the funds needed to develop new medications that will enable Charlie, and others like him, to live happily and comfortably until a cure for CF is found. Over the years, Charlie’s Fight Night has evolved into one of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest fundraising events in the Delaware Valley region. Charlie’s Fight Night 2009 is not to be missed. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, dancing, a raffle, auctions, and entertainment. Some of Philadelphia’s most notable sports celebrities will be in attendance. Tickets are on sale for $100 per person. For information about tickets and sponsorship opportunities, call Robin Clarke at 610-325-6001 or e-mail Proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Delaware Valley Chapter.

Tax bills for 2009 were mailed on August 5. Tax payments for the third quarter are due on August 1, with a 10-day grace period. Because the Borough was unable to print the bills on time (since we did not receive details of our state aid allocation until mid-July), the grace period has been extended to Tuesday, September 1. Property owners may pay in person (Borough Hall Room 105), by mail (PO Box 3005, Haddonfield), or on the Borough’s Web site ( Property owners should note that if tax payments are received after the end of the grace period, interest will be charged retroactively, to August 1.


The first readings taken from the new water meters that were installed townwide earlier this year have been checked against anticipated usage levels. In nearly 200 cases, the readings were higher than expected, suggesting the presence of a leak somewhere in the plumbing system. (The meters record flow every 15 minutes. When a meter records that water is flowing through it at times when the system is expected to be dormant, the reason for the flow can often be traced to a leak.) The Water Department has sent letters to the property owners with higher-then-expected usage levels, urging them to check their plumbing systems, especially toilet cisterns. (It is not uncommon for a leaky toilet to lose 100 gallons a week.)


• To expedite the construction of a speedtable at Lincoln Avenue and Chestnut Street, that intersection is closed and will remain closed for much of August. • Work on Redman Avenue is expected to be completed by the end of August, weather permitting. • Work on Station Avenue and Pennbrook Avenue is expected to begin early in September.


During their meeting on July 28, the Commissioners: • Awarded a contract for the resurfacing of the Centennial Field Tennis Courts. Two bids were received. The contract was awarded to the lower bidder, Frey’s Athletic Surfaces, of Mullica Hill, for $27,779. Work is scheduled to begin on August 17 and to be completed within one week, weather permitting. • Awarded a contract for the replacement of the second half of the driveway apron in front of the Fire House. (The first half was replaced last year.) The contract, for $16,052, was awarded to Sullivan & Pigliacelli, Inc., of Bellmawr. • Awarded a contract for the supply of a vacuum leaf machine. The winning bidder was Old Dominion Brush Co., of Richmond VA. The bid was $30,971.


The Commissioners congratulate the merchants of Haddonfield, and the Partnership for Haddonfield, on receiving Philadelphia magazine’s “Best of Philly” award in the category of Best MainStreet Shopping. The magazine cited the diversity of stores in the downtown, “everything from kid stuff ... to women’s wear ... to sporting equipment ... to jewelry ... to art galleries ... to gifts ... to home furnishings ... to lingerie ... to music ... to spas and salons.” Philadelphia magazine named Haddonfield “Best Revived Shopping District” in 2004.


The Borough is forming a Budget Review Committee to enable members of the community to become more involved in the annual budget formulation process.

The consultants, vendors, and contractors for the recently completed renovation of Kings Court have won the bronze prize in a national competition sponsored by the Brick Industry Association. Kings Court was recognized in the paving and landscape architecture category of the 2009 Brick in Architecture Award. The Commissioners congratulate architect Alberto & Associates, landscape architect Knolltop Nursery, associate architect Remington & Vernick, manufacturer Pine Hall Brick Company, distributor Church Brick Company, and mason contractor Think Pavers Hardscaping. A ribbon-cutting for the newly renovated Kings Court is scheduled for Friday, September 4, with “First Friday” music and art activities for children.


Following the retirement of Chief of Police Rick Tsonis at the end of July, the Commissioners agreed on a process for the hiring of his replacement. Those eligible are members of the Haddonfield Police Department with a rank of sergeant or above (there are seven). They have been invited to submit letters of interest by the end of August.


The Commissioners remind residents, especially senior citizens, that on days when the temperature is predicted to rise above 90 degrees, the air-conditioned Mabel Kay Senior Center will be open throughout the day.
