Hi, Neighbors. Now's your chance to help beautify Merchantville's West End for the season! This Saturday, November 23rd, we will be adding holiday greens to the planters on the West End. Saturday should be a perfect day to get some fresh air - 50 degrees and sunny. We are meeting at 9AM at the Wellwood Park gazebo. Please bring gloves and pruners if you have them. As the English writer John Heywood said "many hands make light work" so all volunteers are welcome. Please spread the word!
Merchantville Country Club's board recently created a video that showcases the beauty of this 9-hole golf course. The video was shot over two days this fall, the first during their highly successful Pig Roast in late September and the second, on a crisp fall day in late October with the colors at their peak. The finished product presents the natural beauty of the private country club, founded in 1892, and is intended to market the course to golfers who may have an interest in joining the club. The golf course and clubhouse are nestled away on 40 acres of land at the juncture of Merchantville and Cherry Hill, NJ at 501 Chapel Avenue.
Members of Merchantville's Fishing Club will join the ranks of anglers targeting striped bass and bluefish from the shores of Long Beach Island as the 65th annual Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Classic kicks off October 5th. Registration is still open for the nine-week derby – which began in 1955 as the “Striped Bass Derby” and is one of the nation’s oldest and most storied surfcasting tournaments. This event runs through December 8th, and offers thousands of dollars in prizes. Proceeds from the tournament, organized by the LBI Surf Fishing Classic Committee in partnership with the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, go toward event prize distribution, with a portion benefiting local high school scholarships.
Oh No! Flocking is happening in Merchantville! 3HS (Haddon Heights) Field Hockey, which includes five players from our town, has started their annual flamingo flocking fundraiser. Please be on the look out for these territorial birds! There's only one group trained to remove them from your lawn and for a donation, that expert team will move them to a neighbor or a friend's lawn. So, if they land at your house just follow the instructions by your mailbox.
Come celebrate with family and friends on Thursday, July 4th at Woodbine Swim Club. We have games, coin toss for the kids, cannon ball contests, a watermelon race, a 50/50, and other fun for all ages. This year, we hope to bring back our corn-hole tournament, and add a horseshoe tournament, and volleyball. There will be lots of food available including burgers, dogs, grilled chicken, and other summer favorites, everything you expect from Woodbine's Independence Day Celebration. The fun starts at noon. The day is all about celebrating America's birthday and it just won't be the same unless you join us! We need help setting up the pavilion to sell food, running games and events, cooking, serving, selling tickets, and cleaning up at the end. We'll need volunteers to organize: Cannonball Contest, Watermelon Race, Piñata, Kids Games, Horseshoe Tournament, Corn-hole Tournament, and Volleyball.
