something to chew on
Nourish your stomachs and your brains...

"Something to Chew On" is a Lunch and Learn program which was very popular pre-Covid program.  It will be held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month from 12:30-2pm.  The format will be (roughly) half an hour to eat lunch and chat, half an hour for the presentation, and then half an hour for Q&A and extra chatting (or leaving as needed). 

Please reply early to ensure a spot as the programs have been at capacity. Please email ssiegel@haddonfield-nj.gov or call (856) 354-8789 to reply.  If you don't like to come to things by yourself, grab a friend (or let me know, and I'll find you a friend).  

Upcoming Speaker Schedule

  • December 28 - No Program
  • January 11, 2023, Katie Donellen (Rehabilitation Teacher) and Lisa Lehman (Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist), NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired:  Did you know that the State of NJ provides services to those who are blind or visually impaired, including aging seniors who may be losing their vision?  Katie and Lisa will explain the different services provided by the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and how it can help you stay independent, purposeful and able to have fun.  Katie focuses on daily living skills (reading, writing checks, technology, how to use a remote control, how to cook, clean, use the telephone, play cards, knit, etc.) and Lisa focuses on travel/orientation skills (how to navigate your house, your neighborhood, how to go grocery shopping, how to cross streets, how to go up/down stairs, how to navigate bumpy sidewalks, etc.).  Really great services (and really great people – they are my former co-workers ��)

  • January 25, 2023, Come meet Emily Hurd and Andrew Nosek who will share their new book, Witchy Wisdom. Every page of Witchy Wisdom has a unique piece of Andrew’s art overlaid with Emily’s poetry. It offers inspiration, affirmations, and poems of deep inner work. Their sincere wish is that you find words of hope, something you can relate to, that uplifts you, or inspires you to do some writing, journaling, or drawing of your own. Never stop creating.
