Adult Program:
Dr. Martin Novelli visits on Sept. 17 at 7 pm to give a program on World War I: The War That DIDN’T End All Wars.

Join us for this lively discussion. The 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, which will be commemorated in many places and many ways between 2014 and 2018, will remind the world that the “Great War” as it came to be known remains the most significant event of the 20th century. The impact of the war continues into the 21st century as the consequences of the four years of unrelenting bloodshed and horror permeate the politics of the world.
The assassination of Arch Duke Francis Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and his wife Sophie on June 28, 1914 set off a month of frantic political and military alarms that culminated in a series of declarations of war at the start of August and plunged most of Europe (and parts of Africa and Asia) into conflict. The belief that after a few battles the war would be over by Christmas and the status quo would be pretty much the same soon gave way to the nightmare (by Christmas there were already a million casualties) of four years of bloodshed that killed or wounded over forty million soldiers and civilians and destroyed the political structures of Europe.

Dr. Martin Novelli recently retired from Ocean County College after twenty-one years as Dean of Humanities and Fine Arts and Professor of Film, History and Humanities. He continues to teach one course a semester as Adjunct Professor of Liberal Arts at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He is co-author (with Dr. Frank J. Wetta of Kean University) of THE LONG RECONSTRUCTION: THE POST-CIVIL WAR SOUTH IN HISTORY FILM, AND MEMORY (2013).  He contributed an essay – “Bill Ehrhart as Educator” - to THE LAST TIME I DREAMED ABOUT THE WAR: ESSAYS ON THE LIFE AND WRITING OF W.D. EHRHART(2014) an international collection honoring Vietnam veteran, poet, essayist, activist, and teacher W.D. Ehrhart.
Call 429-1304, ext. 114 to register for this free program co-sponsored by the Haddonfield Friends of the Library.

 The Adult Book group resumes on September 15 at 7 pm. The featured selection is “Quiet: the Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain. New members are welcome. For more information, contact Kathleen Metrick at 429-1304, ext. 116 or email her at kmetrick@haddonfieldlibrary.org  Light refreshments will be served.

The family has been displaced without any clothes or personal possessions of any kind. We are thankful to inform you that all family members are safe and unharmed but experiencing an overwhelming loss. One of their children is a fifth grader at Elizabeth Haddon. For the immediate term, the school is reaching out to you for gently used clothing, which can be dropped off at the school office. He wears a size 10 for general clothing and a size 4-5 shoe. Thank you in advance for any help that you can offer this family in need”.

Gratitude Brings Blessings--

Haddonfield United Methodist Church

The Haddonfield United Methodist Church, since its inception in 1829, has grown from a gathering of a few in the Grove Schoolhouse to a congregation of over 2000 in our fifth and present home at 29 Warwick Road. Our members come from 57 towns in South Jersey. We have survived an earthquake and several fires, yet after each disaster we emerge stronger than before. We are a big church with a small church friendliness. We sponsor activities for all ages and have dozens of ways of serving from missions, ministries, choirs, small group study, and more. Our new addition was completed in 2008 and has enabled us to expand our ministry with new classrooms for Christian education, a beautiful music suite and new reception and welcome center. In 2009 we celebrated more than 180 years of Christian fellowship and worshipping God in the Methodist tradition established by John Wesley over 250 years ago. Because we believe that one size doesn't fit all, HUMC provides four Worship Services each weekend.

  • Saturdays at 5 p.m. in the chapel (casual service)
  • Sundays at 8 a.m. in the chapel (traditional service)
  • Sundays at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary (contemporary service)
  • Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the sanctuary (traditional service)

Auxiliary Police

Haddonfield Auxiliary Police Officers are trained, non-paid volunteers, whose mission is to augment the Haddonfield Police Department. Their ranks include moms and dads, business owners and executives, and other Borough residents who are committed to making a safer community. In 2007 the Auxiliary Police were honored with the Alfred E. Driscoll Award for outstanding community service. Each year Auxiliary Officers provide almost 1,000 hours of volunteer service. They function as court bailiffs, and direct traffic at town events such as Fire Prevention Night and the Fall Festival. Members also provide crowd control at high school football and basketball games, numerous parades and 1st Night Celebration. Auxiliary Officers also carry out uniformed, foot and bicycle patrol in the business district during Candle Light Shopping; summer-time Friday night concerts; and furnish security for the summer Craft Fair. Auxiliary Officers are trained to respond to local emergencies, natural disasters and assist the Camden County Fire Police.

Meetings Open to the Public
Auxiliary members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in the Haddonfield Court Room. All Borough residents are invited to attend.

Various training seminars are conducted by qualified members of the Haddonfield Police Department. Some officers take optional classes at the Camden County Police Academy. All officers are instructed in basic law enforcement protocol, radio communications, police vehicle operations, self defense, and baton and pepper spray tactics. Officers also remain current with their first-aid and CPR certifications.

Members are expected to provide eight combined hours of service/training per month. In order to become an Auxiliary Officer you must be 18 years of age, have graduated high-school, be physically able to perform the duties of an Auxiliary Police Officer, and pass a background check.

Markeim Art Center

Christine Cathers Donohue, a local award-winning artist, is presenting her can't-miss solo exhibit at Markeim Art Center, Haddonfield, NJ from June 13th through July 27th, 2014. Opening reception will be held on June 13th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Christine's light-inspired paintings bring to life beautiful scenes and vibrant images from New York City (including Central Park), Cape May, Boathouse Row in Philadelphia, and, of course, Haddonfield.

"Over the years I have been commissioned to paint a variety of subjects including portraits of families, children, houses, sporting events, and more. I love sunlight. Especially when light appears more golden and is selective about where it lands. It is that 'golden hour' light that can make any subject my favorite thing to paint. It's the kind of light that can intensify the emotional quality of any image."
