Celebrating National Public Works Week In Pennsauken

By Joe Scavuzzo, Director, Department of Public Works

The week of May 21 is dedicated as “National Public Works Week.” To kick off this article, I’d like to quote the American Public Works Association (APWA). “This year, National Public Works Week celebrates the vital role public works plays in connecting us all together. As the cornerstone of civilization, public works provides, maintains, and improves the structures and services that assure a higher quality of life for our communities. Its streets, roads, bridges, and public transportation keep us linked together from coast to coast, and its clean water and sanitation services keep us healthy and allow our communities to grow and prosper. The APWA proudly salutes and thanks the tens of thousands of public works professionals who work tirelessly throughout North America every day to strengthen the bond that keeps us all connected.”

Cookie Sale, Ira’s Tree Of Knowledge Support Pennsauken Library

By Arlene Miller, Friends of the Pennsauken Free Public Library

Mother’s Day is coming up and that can mean only one thing: another Friends of the Pennsauken Free Public Library Cookie Sale, just in time to coddle Mom with sweets as good as if you made them yourself. We’ll open shop at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 13 in the Library lobby and close at 3:00 p.m. or until we run out of supplies. Cookies are $1 a bag and come in a variety of flavors; and if you’re a member of the Friends, you’ll even get a free bag for showing your membership card. But if you’re not a Friend, why not sign up that day, become a member and get your sign-up bag free?

There are other ways to honor Mom besides cookies. Consider giving her a beautiful brass leaf engraved with her name and a favorite quote or sentiment on Ira’s Tree of Knowledge on the Library lobby wall. It would let not only her but everyone else who passes it realize how special she is. Leaves are available to select, and each is $200. Lifetime members of the Friends are eligible for a 20 percent discount. You’ll find more information in the Ira’s Tree of Knowledge brochure on the lobby desk.

Funds raised by the Friends go to support the Pennsauken Free Public Library with resources and programs not covered in the organization’s operating budget.

Sign, Sign, Everywhere A Sign…

By Betsy McBride, Mayor of Pennsauken Township

I recently received a letter from a resident expressing concern over the number of “No Parking” signs along Haddonfield Rd. She correctly stated that no one parks along this busy four-lane County road. She also correctly stated that when a sign is so faded that you cannot read the words, it is no longer a sign.

She must’ve known that old signs, faded signs, dated signs, and too many signs are a pet peeve of mine.

The Township is 125 years old and we have many signs in our community that are aging. While we cannot replace every street sign in the Township this year, we can and should replace or remove directional or informational signs that no longer serve their intended purpose. Priority should be given to our major roads for curb appeal, but we should also address resident concerns in our neighborhoods.

Victoriana East Celebrates 30 Years In Pennsauken

By Frank Sinatra, AAP Editor

When the new construction market in the 1980s began to fizzle out, Pennsauken native Rich Tamburo went looking for the next home trend. He found it in the Victorian revival, dabbling in bracket and porch restoration. But it was his work customizing Victorian screen doors that drew demand from customers, turning a hunch into Victoriana East, a Pennsauken-based business that’s reached the 30 year mark.
