What an inspiration...

I attended Camden County Senior Art Awards event at the JCC. Min Kaufman has won so many competitions and now she added 2nd place in the mixed media category. Min recently attended Art Camp at Fairmount Park; she participated in the Collage category and she won first prize in the juried show.  At 96, Min is an inspiration...I was happy to cheer her on at the ceremony.  CONGRATULATIONS Minnie Kaufman!

March 14 Senior Luncheon featured Cooking Demonstration

This past Friday we showed the movie "Julie & Julia" during the Senior Citizen Luncheon with the Arts at Croft Farm.  The luncheon was a little different than usual, as we had a special guest - Marianne Wilkins, a Cherry Hill Arts Board member and retired home economics teacher, who did a live cooking demonstration before the movie.  It was a lot of fun and there were samples of her Quinoa Pilaf for all in attendance. 

The next Luncheon with the Arts at Croft Farm features the movie "First Wives Club."  The luncheon will be held on Friday, April 11.  Tickets cost $5 ($8 at the door) and are still available.  For more information or to reserve your tickets, contact us at 856-488-7868 or email
