3rd Thursday Art Crawl Getting some press!

Having an art crawl in the city at first sounds like a living oxymoron — fostering an arts community in a city plagued with problems that overshadow its possibilities does not seem promising. The Butlers — Ronja and William — knew that when they lifted the plan from other cities with art walks and put on the first 3rd Thursday Art Crawl in February of 2012.

Labor Day, Mr. Fulbrook’s Memorial Service

1.    Memorial Services for Frank Fulbrook:
The funeral arrangement for Frank Fulbrook is this Friday, September 6, 2013 at Sacred Heart Church, between Broadway and Ferry Ave., 1739 Ferry Ave., Camden, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  The ceremony will begin at 2:30pm.

2.     In the spirit of Grass Roots Activism (ala Frank Fulbrook): Did you know that Labor Day has some roots to Camden NJ? Peter McGuire, founder of the AFL, who is one many consider the father of Labor Day, lived his retired years in Camden and is buried in neighboring Pennsauken.  Google Labor today to learn more.  In fact, McGuire Gardens in Camden is named after this labor leader.
