Greening the West End

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!



Collecting for the Needy

The Love in Motion youth group is collecting again this fall for our homeless outreach in Camden and canned goods for the Cathedral Kitchen. We will be headed back out to volunteer again with New Beginnings Camden on December 7th. In addition to toiletries, we are also collecting winter coats, gloves, hats, boots, shoes, and anything to keep warm - including clothes, underwear, blankets - and we are still collecting towels! The Station Coffee in Merchantville is generously helping out by collecting socks and bags - Ipsy, canvas, or drawstring - you can drop those specific items there. The youth group is also collecting canned goods and non-perishables and will have a collection table at the Merchantville Turkey Trot. You can drop off goods for either to the Fitzgerald/Cooper house at 24 Volan Street or the Aman/Kelly house at 112 Locust Street, or contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Visit Merchantville CC

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.
