As September is a month of new beginnings and refreshed ambitions, with a return from vacations and schools welcoming new classes, so does a new season of events begin at our historical organizations in Pennsauken. That creates an opportunity to see how far we have come and what is next. It is also an ideal time to become involved in the participatory sport of history!

Happy September! Wow! Where did the summer go, huh?
You’ve already put the sun block away, school clothes and supplies have been purchased, and with any luck, you’ll manage your first cup of disturbance-free coffee since the end of June.
“We’re not a snack bar bowling alley.” That’s the mindset of Mark Platzer, owner of Pinsetter Bar and Bowl, located at 7111 Maple Ave. in Pennsauken. Long gone are the days of the old Maple Bowl. Pinsetter’s kitchen has a staff of six and a kitchen manager and head chef with a fine dining background; but the establishment still caters guests as old as three and bowlers as young as 92. “We think we have something for everybody.”

I made a major discovery last night that just may set the scientific world on its ear!
I had taken the VW out for an evening ride to the every Wednesday night gathering of car guys on Main St. on the Maple Shade/Moorestown border. As a group of us stood around trading stories and reminiscing about our youthful adventures in things automotive, the discovery hit me like a thunderbolt!
