Marietta Hanigan (pictured), a fourth-grade teacher at Haddonfield Friends, is going to raise her second Canine Companion service puppy this year with her students. The new puppy is a yellow lab named Tyrone. She and her class formerly raised a black lab puppy named Hope, which went on to graduate from training and now serves a family with disabilities. The new puppy will have an integral role in the classroom, just as Hope did, attending school every day and being an additional friend for the children in the class.

All 20 locations of the Malvern School, including schools in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties, participated in the 5th annual Malvern School Alex’s Lemonade Stand Day recently. The Malvern School has hosted this event for five years and has, to date, raised more than $119,000 for the children’s charity. This year, the Malvern School expected to raise another $60,000. In 2011, The Malvern School was recognized by the ALSF as one of the top 100 individual fundraisers for the foundation in this area.

Fourteen- and 15-year-old “counselors in training” from the JCC camp in Medford recently learned first-hand why New Jersey is called “The Garden State” by helping senior residents at Spring Hills Cherry Hill establish a new organic community garden right along Route 70, formerly a country road through the state’s historic farm country. The teens helped elderly residents plant tomatoes, peppers, carrots, cucumbers, strawberries, beans and tasty herbs including basil, rosemary, chives, cilantro and mint. Once the plants are ready for harvest, the produce will be incorporated into healthy meals for the residents.

Cale Krise, a 27-year-old Haddonfield native, recently earned one of the lead roles in one of the most popular shows on Broadway, The Book of Mormon. This is the first turn on Broadway for Krise. He began the role of Elder Cunningham in June, in a production that has won nine Tony Awards and a Grammy. Krise also has off-Broadway experience in the new musical Fat Camp. His other theatrical credits include The Full Monty, Twelfth Night, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
