Hello fellow seniors.
Sponsored by the Pennsauken Education Association, the Senior Citizen Prom will be on Sunday, April 2 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the Pennsauken High School Cafeteria. This great annual event features lunch; great music to dance to, courtesy of High Noone Express; and the Optical Academy will also be on hand from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. to provide eye exams. Immediately after the prom, seniors will be escorted to the auditorium to watch Pennsauken High School’s performance of “The Wedding Singer.” And it’s all FREE to Pennsauken seniors!
Seniors can RSVP for the event by calling the Senior Citizen Coordinator’s office at (856) 665-1000 x125. Please provide your full name, phone number, and number of people in your party.
A group of local police officers are joining together to honor the memories of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Team Pennsauken is made up of members of the Pennsauken and Merchantville Police Departments who will be riding bicycles with the Police Unity Tour Chapter II. The three-day Police Unity Tour will begin in South Jersey on Wednesday, May 10, 2017. The Tour will visit some of the towns where officers have fallen in the line of duty before departing New Jersey en route to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. The officers will bicycle close to 300 miles during the tour.
This month, some people will be focusing on basketball and all the March Madness. Others will be awaiting the glorious holiday that is Saint Patrick’s Day. There are many different ways to celebrate this fun holiday.
I guess it’s because I was raised around so many Irish Catholic families that yours truly tips her Viking helmet happily, every year, in celebration and honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
You know there’s a quote I love that goes something like this: “You may not always remember what people said to you, but you will always remember how they made you feel.”
And that’s my forever connection to St. Paddy’s Day – cozy feelings and happy memories.

The world in 1892 was different, but people were much the same. Things new then are old now, but they persist in our lives. It was the year the Nutcracker ballet debuted in Tsarist Russia; the rules of the new game of basketball were published; and the character of Sherlock Holmes first appeared as a collection of stories in book form.
