    I would like to become reinvolved in the work of your organization. I remember meeting Joan Aiken, a person whose passion certainly inspired me. With the development of the PATCO site being planned, I would like to become involved in curbing this horror. Please let me know how I may be of service to our home town!

    Sue,
    Thank you for your interest in “Preservation Haddonfield”, our next meeting is January 11, 2010. You will receive reminders from our web site as the meeting time approaches……It is easy to ignore voices of the few, but difficult to ignore screams of the many!!

    Dave/Dave & all,

    I am very impressed in what you have been able to put together in just a few short weeks.

    I very much enjoyed viewing the slideshow of the Indian King Tavern and learning more about this historic sight in our town.

    You can count on my support!

    Keep up the good work!

    Tom Kenny

    What a nicely done video. I think too many people in town aren’t aware of Haddonfield’s rich history, and how much of it is still around us in buildings, parks, trees, and the layout of the town. I hope Preservation Haddonfield is successful in it’s mission and helps educate all of us (myself included!) on what we have and how we can preserve it.

    Hi, I’m a new resident in Haddonfield and moved here because I love how well Haddonfield has preserved its town. I would love to volunteer my time. Please let me know how I can help. In the meantime, how can I get my hands on lawn signs opposing development at Bancroft?
    Thanks,
    Jeniffer

    You do such fine work in many areas, but I think your opposition to development of the Bancroft site overlooks important points: (1) Many current senior home owners would love a quality living-continuing care facility in town. Your posture is coming across as a little anti-seniors; (2) Open space is not free. It would require policing (especially next to the high school and the county park), maintenance of the landscape (especially pruning to prevent fires). The area could become an eyesore and security concern. It is better to have people than emptiness; and (3) The borough’s business district badly needs more foot traffic and shoppers.
