Spotlight Award goes to Moorestown Hardware!

 width=

Ask most Moorestown residents to name a place that signifies the spirit and personality of the town, and many will list Moorestown Hardware—the beloved general store-style hardware supply nestled in the heart of the township in a historic building on Mill Street.

A visit to the store is like stepping back in time to the kind of friendly place where you can find just about anything, get answers to questions, and feel genuinely welcome.

Owners Pete and Julie Bender don’t see their store as a competitor to “big box” hardware merchandizers—those outlets serve their purpose. Instead, the Benders seek to be the home-town source for countless indispensable items in a place that is reliably helpful, convenient and just plain fun to visit.

Old fashioned music and an old TV set with a loop of vintage shows add nostalgic atmosphere while customers browse aisles loaded with modern merchandise stacked on wooden flooring laid in 1879.

Everything from tools to light bulbs, lawn and snow equipment to birdseed, lighting supplies to air filters are available—or you can run in to get a key made, an item repaired, or buy a jar of specialty pickles and a pocketful of the counter candy.

The charm and dependable service and selection are enough to set the store apart, but Moorestown Hardware goes beyond being a great small business in Moorestown.

The owners are also committed to using their store as a source for good in the community, and continuously donate resources and assistance to the township and non-profits throughout Moorestown.

It is this commitment to the community that has earned Moorestown Hardware a Spotlight Award from Moorestown Business Association.

Both of the Benders grew up in Moorestown, and returned after starting careers in retail management to raise their family here.

They have made it a point to connect with and support a variety of community organizations and initiatives, including dozens of youth athletic leagues, local churches, holiday parades, the Nipper Program, and township organizations such as Sustainable Moorestown and the Moorestown Community House, to which it donates all the lights for the annual Holiday Tree Lighting. After November’s fire at Moorestown Community House, Moorestown Hardware set up donation jars on its counters and also contributed 10 percent of their profits from the recent Small Business Saturday toward the restoration of the center. They also supply the luminaries for Moorestown’s Candlelight Night, adding a festive glow to the winter holiday event enjoyed by almost everyone in town. In addition, Moorestown Hardware is the place residents can go to recycle batteries and old Christmas lights, and serves as a repository for worn American flags. Gestures like these reflect the philosophy behind the way the Benders run their business and the value they place on the being a part of a community in which, notes Pete Bender, there is an “undercurrent of fellowship” that binds the town. This mindset is carried out each day in the store, where the Benders and their staff make every attempt to connect with customers on a personal level and offer solutions to their problems. “We are lucky to have the opportunity to touch people in a positive way every day—it’s a privilege to be a part of their lives,” explain the owners. And Moorestown residents are fortunate to have the Benders and Moorestown Hardware in their midst. The MBA initiated its Spotlight program as a means to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have taken or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.

The Power of Kindness - A Daytime Book Discussion Group at Moorestown Library

The Power of Kindness – A Daytime Book Discussion Group

First Tuesday of every month, 1 -2:30  PM, effective October, 2015

Tuesday, October 6th November 3rd, December 1stJanuary 5th and on thru 2016.

Moorestown Library, 111 West 2nd Street, Moorestown, NJ 08057

Community Meeting Room

Essays from The Power of Kindness, The Surprising Benefits of Living a Compassionate Life, by Piero Ferrucci, will be the focus of a community oriented book discussion. It will proceed,  one essay at a time, one month at a time, following the order of the Kindness Wheel. (To download and print your copy of the Kindness Wheel, go to Moorestown.com) Essay discussions will be facilitated by longtime Moorestown resident, Holly Myers, community kindness coordinator. Additional copies of the book will be ordered by the Library based on community interest.

 An independent bookstore in Washington, DC offered this review of the book 

A mindful and powerful collection of musings on happiness and gratitude, Ferrucci's  The Power of Kindness takes on the challenges of maintaining loving kindness and patience with each passing moment. His compilation incorporates various stories from individuals with which he has interacted, as well as his own musings on his past experiences. With his brief yet detailed chapters, he offers solutions and reminders for daily compassion and kindness towards the self and others, offering insightful yet simple suggestions for a variety of frustrations we must face in order to grow into loving beings. -Cristina

Dr. Ferrucci, the author, lives outside of Florence in Italy. On learning from an e-mail that Moorestown has declared a year of kindness and is using his book as a basis, stated “I am stunned. What a beautiful idea! I am honoured to be part of it. Thank you so much for including my work... and good luck with your project. “

Our discussions will follow an order that differs from the book, given that they are designed to align with calendar events with a natural fit. Our October beginning will launch with a review of the September focus of Service as well as the October focus, which is Contact/Connection; November is Gratitude; December is Generosity, January is Honesty and so on.

Chapter discussions are intended to move us forward in our Community Kindness conversation.

Partnerships with our local papers and posts on Facebook - Kindness Today are a way we can expand the reach, awareness, and interactive possibilities for our town. If you are unable to join us live at the Library, consider obtaining a copy of the book, reading along with us, and connecting through Facebook, e-mail or news outlets.

Please note that “Niceness” is a way of being that neither the author nor the facilitator seeks to encourage! In fact, niceness can give kindness a bad name -  when it is syrupy, insincere or designed to manipulate. There is a phony quality. True kindness can be trusted as genuine, honest, and from the heart. We can feel the difference. 

Care to join us? You are welcome to do so.

To indicate your interest, text or call Holly Myers at 609-876-2730 or send an e-mail to Holly at kindnesscampaign@comcast.net

 

In partnership for kind and peaceful people, and a kind and peaceful world,

SALON AT MARC STEPHENS AND ROFFLER OF MOORESTOWN EARN SPOTLIGHT AWARD

 width=

SALON AT MARC STEPHENS AND ROFFLER OF MOORESTOWN 

EARN SPOTLIGHT AWARD FROM MOORESTOWN BUSINESS ASSOCIATION 

MOORESTOWN—People who live in Moorestown cherish its nostalgic charm, but they also appreciate local access to the latest trends. It’s not always easy for merchants to provide both—but when the café next door to Roffler of Moorestown Barbershop closed down, proprietor Mark Merlino and his wife Michele saw an opportunity to create a combined space that could offer residents the best of traditional and contemporary hair and beauty options. They took the plunge and, after implementing considerable capital improvements on the entire building, opened a companion business next to the barbershop—the elegant Salon at Marc Stephens, managed by Michele. Now the side-by-side enterprises provide a compendium of personal services for men and women, including high-end product lines and technical expertise along with the friendly personal attention that has made the barbershop a home-town favorite for decades. 

The building that houses both businesses on Chester Avenue has been handsomely redesigned after more than a year of planning and construction. The exterior sports a polished new façade, and the former café portion of the interior was gutted to the studs to make way for the beautifully appointed space now occupied by the salon. Clients of the Salon at Marc Stephens are invited to relax in an elegant, spa-like environment, while the barbershop retains the warm, comfortable atmosphere that has drawn generations of loyal customers. The barbershop and salon also offer free parking in the back. 

Constructed originally as a family home in the late 1800s, the building was converted to a café in 1911 and added a barbershop on one side in 1959. Mark’s father John Merlino bought the barbershop business in 1961 and went on to purchase the entire building in 1973, leasing out the other side to various restaurant entrepreneurs through the years. The eponymous John’s Barbershop changed with the times in the 1970s when it became part of the exclusive Roffler franchise of barbers, offering the latest in men’s hair styling. In 1980, Mark joined the business where his father had built a reputation for personal attention to his clientele and dedication to professional excellence, and has maintained that legacy since John’s retirement in 1999. 

The building’s upgrades and improvements have added some new sparkle to the Chester Avenue stretch of commercial properties that are conveniently located in the heart of town. Moorestown Business Association applauds the Merlinos for making the commitment to participate in the township’s next wave of enterprise while maintaining an appreciation for tradition, and is delighted to present an MBA Spotlight Award to Salon at Marc Stephens and Roffler of Moorestown. 

The MBA initiated its Spotlight Award program in 2015 to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have implemented or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.

Kindness in the Workplace. Improving Climate From Where You Are Right Now

 

For anyone who is employed, a significant proportion of time is spent in the workplace.  It follows naturally that the 'climate' can have a profound impact on the quality of life.
The University of Wisconsin completed a study regarding Workplace Climate in 2004. Its title:  'Improving Climate From Where You Are Right Now'. It can be found on line at the link below.  

 

The questionnaire asks for the level of importance of each topic as well as the degree of satisfaction. (It's the 7th page of the attached document.) Here is a cut and paste of the actual questions:
 
Importance & Satisfaction of These Measures to Me in My Immediate Office or Department:  (Participants are asked to rate the Importance on a scale of 1-5, and their personal satisfaction also on a scale of 1-5.)
1. Spirit of cooperation among those with whom I work.
2. 
Clarity of roles and responsibilities.
3. 
Resources to do my work well.
4. 
Feeling appreciated for my work.
5. 
Encouragement to grow professionally.
6. 
Being cared about as a person.
7. 
Ample opportunities to do what I do best.
8. 
Differences are valued (including age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation).
With minor adaptations, this questionnaire can be applied to the home environment as well - or to an organization. Guidelines for effective implementation of a workplace survey are an important component of the study.
As the authors write:
'Conspicuous by their absence are questions dealing with pay, benefits, senior management or organizational structure (p. 20). Buckingham and Coffman do not include these in their list of climate questions, not because they are not important, but “because they are equally important to every employee, good bad, and mediocre” (p. 29). Pay and benefits they say, “are like tickets to the ballpark—they can get you into the game, but they can’t help you win” (p. 29).
The authors say, it is the manager, not pay, benefits, perks, or a charismatic leader at the top who is the critical player in building a strong workplace (p. 32). These questions should be asked only if leaders are willing to take action to improve the work climate.'
Food for thought...
In partnership for kind community,

 

Holly

The POWER of KINDNESS - A Kindness Wheel for YOU!

Please feel free to download this Kindness Wheel for use in your home, office, classroom, organization, business, faith community, etc...

Space in the center allows you to customize a commitment, naming yourself or organization an Ambassador of Kindness.

For best results, print the wheel in color, on card stock. Or print on regular paper and attach to a file folder. The addition of a spinner at the center adds an element of playfulness and surprise.  Assorted spinners are available in pkgs of 24 at Joann Fabrics. An alternative is to toss a coin, pebble or piece of rice or macaroni (LOL!!) to choose a quality of kindness. This quality can then be added to your conscious way of being - perhaps for the next ten minutes! Let's see what happens as we build new muscles in kindness consciousness!

Holly Myers, Community Kindness Coordinator.  :-)

Saratoga Benefit Services Presented with MBA Spotlight Award

 width=

Amy Webb of Saratoga Benefit Services

presented with MBA spotlight award

MOORESTOWN—If you mention Amy Webb’s name—people will tell you she’s “everywhere.” That’s because the energetic president of Saratoga Benefit Services likes to get involved. A successful Moorestown business owner since 1998, Webb also places a high priority on serving her community and beyond. She is affiliated with non-profit organizations throughout Moorestown and Burlington County, and is the recipient of numerous awards for public service as well as business achievement. In her spare time, she is a USTA-rated tennis player and represents local tennis clubs in competitive matches.

Always active in the community, Webb’s civic involvement seemed to grow exponentially with her business, a benefits services company in which she characteristically offers a high degree of personal service.  Fifteen years ago she was appointed to serve on the Board of Directors for Burlington County College, eventually becoming the first female board chair—a position she held for three years—and is now on the college’s Foundation Board. For this and her commitment to other regional organizations, such as the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce, she was recognized by the Burlington County Advisory Council on Women with an award for public service.

Not long after Webb relocated her business from her home office to the heart of Main Street in Moorestown, she was recruited to join the Moorestown Rotary Club, where she discovered a perfect fit for her desire to have “a hands-on approach to give back to the greater community.” A Rotary member for almost ten years, Webb is the current chairperson of the organization’s Lend a Hand Committee, which focuses on activities and fundraising for groups in need. The committee works both autonomously and in tandem with other non-profits in town and the elsewhere, such as Moorestown Parks & Recreation Department, Live Civilly, Family Services/Twin Oaks, the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation, Mother Matters, and the Tender. Local humanitarian projects have included community clean-ups, food and clothing drives, and assisting elderly residents with projects; and the committee also does outreach in areas surrounding Moorestown.

Webb is slated to become Moorestown Rotary’s president in 2017, becoming the local chapter’s fifth female president since it was founded in 1925. Her caring outlook is also reflected in her business. Aided by staff members Maddie Webb and Kim Pewor, she supports many local causes through Saratoga Benefit Services, which is recognized for creating custom employee-benefits plans with a business philosophy that focuses on the best interests of its clients. The MBA is delighted to recognize Amy Webb as a business leader and community service champion with an ongoing, enthusiastic commitment to improving the lives of others.

The MBA initiated its Spotlight Award program in 2015 to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have implemented or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.

Moorestown Auto Body & Car Care earns MBA Spotlight Award

Moorestown Auto Body & Car Care

earns MBA spotlight award for making others shine

 

You might hope you won’t have to visit Moorestown Auto Body & Car Care, a Lenola district anchor business that has provided expert automobile body repair and reconstruction for decades. But when the need arises, customers are grateful for the proficiency and attention to detail they receive in the hands of Craig Dennin and his staff. Cars that arrive with severe damage from wrecks, or even the scrapes and scratches from parking lot encounters, leave Moorestown Auto Body showroom ready.

Dennin’s company is known for fair pricing, exceptional work, and not adding anything to the job that isn’t necessary, “If they don’t need it, I don’t sell it,” he explains. Top insurance companies list it as a preferred repair resource, and the dedicated office staff eases the process of navigating the paperwork.  A number of Dennin’s customers come in for “re-repairs,” following up on less than satisfactory repair jobs done elsewhere. In recent years, auto body customers who had developed a trust in the company’s workmanship began to ask for other services. Because of these requests, Dennin decided to expand the business—he now also takes care of routine auto mechanical needs, such as oil changes, tune-ups, and brake alignments.

The iconic building on East Camden Avenue started out as an Army barracks structure in Medford that was moved in the 1920s to its current location. In the 1950s it housed a Rambler dealership, and by the 1960s it had become Schaaf’s Auto Body. Craig and his wife Denise, a speech pathologist, bought the business in 2003 and worked to build a reputation of caring and trust that customers have come to expect and recommend to others.

The Dennins devote the same kind of dedication and good will that frame their business towards the philanthropic work they do in the community. Through connections Denise developed by working with clients’ children, in the 1980s the Dennins became involved in HOMH (Hometown Opportunities for Mentally Handicapped), which is dedicated to enriching the lives of people with mental and physical challenges who are above the age of formal schooling. They started a theater troupe within the organization, offering participants (ages 18-60) the opportunity to experience performing on a stage in front of an audience. The plays they produce are all original, and in recent years all written by Craig and Denise after collaborating with the group’s participants.

The Dennins now have leadership roles in the organization, which has broadened its scope to provide access to life-skills training such as computer literacy and has branched out into subgroups offering multiple opportunities in the creative arts. HOMH attracts participants from throughout the tri-county area, and the flagship theater troupe, which has marched in the Mummers and other parades, is still going strong. Their latest show, “The Best Day,” included a reception with WMMR radio DJ Jacky Bam Bam and drew coverage from local media. Through Moorestown Auto Body, the Dennins also contribute to multiple other philanthropic needs in Moorestown each year.

As business leaders providing exceptional customer service and for their ongoing support and participation in enhancing the lives of others in our area, the Dennins and Moorestown Auto Body & Car Care are recipients of a Moorestown Business Association Spotlight Award. The MBA initiated its Spotlight Award program in 2015 to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have implemented or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve our community.

MBA 2016 Scholarship Winners

 width=

 

MOORESTOWN—Nine years ago, the Moorestown Business Association (MBA) established a scholarship program to acknowledge Moorestown High School seniors interested in pursuing a business major in college and who have demonstrated extraordinary achievement in extracurricular and or community activities.  Two scholarship winners are blindly selected each year through a review of submitted applications; the 2016 MBA Scholarship awardees are John Cantwell and Nori Horvitz. 

Dan Posternock and Amy Leis chair the MBA’s scholarship committee, and spend a significant amount of time searching for the best candidates. “We follow a specific screening process to determine our scholarship recipients, with criteria that includes GPA and a passion for business,” explains Ms. Leis. “After reading over 100 applications, these two students stood head and shoulders above the field.”

Nori Horvitz originally wanted to be a doctor, but got hooked on business after taking Adam Roth’s website development class her freshman year. She joined Future Business Leaders of America and her enthusiasm for the subject continued to grow as she enrolled in every business class she could fit into her schedule. As her perspective developed she became interested in starting a non-profit business to assist underprivileged schools build their libraries. She founded UBUBiz, through which she ran successful small-scale book conventions that raised money to fill this need. She intends to maintain this business as she pursues her business degree at Babson College in Massachusetts this fall.

Even at ten years of age, John Cantwell was an entrepreneur. The youngster started his own landscape business while he was still in elementary school, and by the time he graduated from high school his company (Bellevue Landscaping LLC) had 11 employees and over 40 clients. John, who loves developing innovative products and excels in math, enjoyed the challenge of running his own business and learning from all aspects of the process. He sold his company at the conclusion of his senior year, and the proceeds will help pay for tuition as he earns a degree in business and engineering at Lehigh University.

John and Nori were notified that they had won the MBA scholarships during Moorestown High School’s Senior Award Ceremony just before they graduated from Moorestown High School this summer. The MBA Board congratulates the association’s 2016 scholarship winners, and wishes them much success as they continue to pursue their business careers.

Passariello's honored with MBA Spotlight Award

 width=

 

Passariello’s Marks a Milestone and Merits MBA Spotlight Award

 

MOORESTOWN—From the day Passariello’s Pizzeria and Italian Kitchen first opened in 1996, its doors were filled with a stream of people—parents darting in and out to pick up pizzas, sports teams gathering after practices, families taking a break from their own kitchens, business lunches, celebrations, and after-work get-togethers. The constant procession of customers indicated that the bright, cheerful restaurant was just what Moorestown needed, and it has endured because Passariello’s owners are committed to doing things just right.

For founders Pasquale, Vincenzo, Giovanni, and Sakari Passariello, the restaurant is not just a business or a job, it is their passion—and it shows. In an industry in which 60 percent of restaurants fail in their first year and 80 percent don’t make it past five years, Passariello’s will mark its 20th anniversary in Moorestown the week of September 12. Moorestown Business Association is presenting Passariello’s with a Spotlight Award to applaud the restaurant’s success as it celebrates this important milestone.

Along with offering a large variety of fresh, delicious food in short order, a unique food service concept sets Passariello’s apart from traditional pizzeria’s. Instead of a wait staff, customers can see and order everything they might want to eat at different food stations. Pasquale, who came up with the idea, loves to tell how it came about.

The native of Monte di Procida, Italy (near Naples) started his food journey in the galley of a European cargo ship and followed opportunities to build his skills in different kitchens on America’s East Coast. He spent the next chapter of his career managing quality control in Scotto pizza outlets all over the country, and eventually bought several Scotto franchises—the last one located in South Jersey’s Echelon Mall.  It was there that he developed his idea for a food court style restaurant where patrons could walk around and choose from different categories of menu items. When the property that would eventually become Passariello’ became available in Moorestown, he and his brothers jumped at the opportunity to build Pasquale’s dream business. 

The timing was perfect—Moorestown embraced the fun, new family-friendly place, and 12 years later they opened a second location in Voorhees. Currently the Passariellos are looking to expand further, but only if they can do it their way—and they are very particular. It is no accident that the organization runs like clockwork.  “Each of the four brothers plays an integral role in the family business,” explains the company’s director Ted Barber.

“Pasquale is the visionary with an instinct for planning and design who developed the overall character of Passariellos. Giovanni is the culinarian, with a fastidious regard to purchasing and management systems, as well as having a keen eye on continuously upgrading and improving the operation. Vincenzo oversees the operational end of the bustling business, including the product flow and staff; and Sakari is the landscape architect and problem solver who keeps an eye on theming, decoration and the impeccable design of the interior and exterior of the business.” The one element that is common amongst the family members, Barber says, is an intense pride in everything they do and a relentless commitment to excellence.

This vigorous dedication to perfection shows in the details, and nothing is done halfway. In many restaurants, especially those as busy as this, the booths are bolted down—but not at Passariello’s. Every stick of furniture is moved each week so the floor and hard to reach areas can be scrupulously cleaned. There is a staff member who spends over three hours every day seeing to the exterior plantings and cleaning. Another is hand-cutting the chicken in the kitchen, while someone else is making certain the prep area is spotless. Food safety is paramount. Barber, who has worked on major food service projects throughout the world, says he seldom sees this level of detail by independent operators within this casual dining sector.

He also points out that family members aren’t always the best partners, but says, “There is something special about this family.” The hard working and family centric culture instilled in the children from an early age by the family patriarch, Clemente Passariello, has shaped the way the Passariello children conduct themselves to this day.  Clemente Passariello, who also worked in the restaurant before he passed away in 2007, was a fixture of smiles and pride of what his family built. His five children, including daughter Marianna, respect each other and always do what’s best for their families and the business. Their values are evident in everything they do.” As Pasquale stresses, it is not about making money—it’s about doing things right and putting the family name on something they are proud of.

In 2009, with an eye toward gradual expansion in which the family could remain the guiding force, a branding company was engaged to fine tune Passariello’s image. A bright new logo emerged, along with the formulation of the company’s core attributes that the brothers believe define their business: Tradition. Freshness. Informal. Fast.  The Passariello family treasures its customers. “They don’t have to come here, but it is an honor every time someone walks through our door.” Says Pasquale. “It is important to us that our customers trust us.”

Along with being a destination of great food and an appealing meeting place for the past 20 years, the restaurant has greatly enhanced the appearance of Main Street. The family also consistently supports the community by supplying Hero cards to the local police, fire, and EMT members. The Passariellos support township youth sports teams, schools, Moorestown graduates, events, and many more noteworthy causes. The MBA has awarded Passariello’s a Spotlight Award for the flagship restaurant’s long-term success in Moorestown, and its role in helping to make it a better place to visit and live.

MBA Presents Spotlight Award to Camden Avenue McDonald's

MBA presents Spotlight Award to Moorestown’s Mcdonald’s

serving great food and the community for 21 years

 

Mark Grenon just finished serving breakfast to over 1,000 hungry people—but the Moorestown McDonald’s franchise owner wasn’t working at his bustling restaurant at the corner of Lenola Rd. and Camden Ave. Every year he donates all the pancakes and supervises the food preparation for the Rotary Club’s Pancake Breakfast. In the spring he does the same for Moorestown Baseball Federation’s Breakfast, and he’s been providing this service for these organizations for 21 years. It’s his way of connecting with and giving back to the community that has supported his business for decades, and as the proprietor of a restaurant that has food preparation and service down to a science, he’s up to the task.

Grenon started working in a McDonald’s while he was in high school in Edgewater Park, continued to work shifts while he was going to Rutgers, and at the age of 30 he purchased his first franchise on Torresdale Avenue in Philadelphia—an outlet he still owns. In 1994, he bought the McDonald’s in the Moorestown Mall, and a year later he took ownership of the franchise on Lenola Road. As shopping patterns shifted, he decided to close the mall location in 2010 and invest in a complete renewal of his restaurant in the historic Lenola section of Moorestown.  In 2011 the original 1967 structure was razed, and taking its place was a bright modern building that continues to draw about 1,000 diners a day. Grenon just opened another McDonald’s on Rt. 38 and Coles Avenue, but he maintains that the Moorestown location will remain his favorite because of the sense of community that he enjoys there.

The restaurant is a family favorite serving a much wider variety of food than in 1955 when Ray Kroc opened the first in what would become a chain of more than 36,000 locations. From the start, the McDonald’s organization set out to serve quickly prepared meals made from quality products. Through the years, it embraced marketplace trends and nutrition guidelines to provide fresh and tasty food with lots of menu choices, and has joined the global effort to support sustainable agriculture. “McDonald’s is always evolving,” notes Grenon. “Its goal is to be the restaurant of the 21st century.”

Grenon says the signature hamburgers and fries are still a mainstay, but many people stop in for the variety of salads and healthy breakfast items, or a trip to the McCafe machine for specialty coffee drinks and smoothies. The location is convenient for residents and commuters, whether they’re ordering from the drive-through window or using the free WiFi as they enjoy their food.

Grenon is proud to be a part of an organization that values quality and innovation, and looks forward to continuing to provide Moorestown residents of all ages with great food and service—and to flipping thousands of pancakes for the good of the community.

Moorestown Business Association initiated its Spotlight program in 2015 as a means to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. The MBA is recognizing the restaurant and its owner for 21 years of business leadership and community support.

MBA THANKS TOM SHECKELS FOR SEVEN YEARS OF SERVICE

 width=

MBA Vice President Stephen Pazienza (l.) and President Don Powell (r.) present Tom Sheckels with a plaque commemorating his seven years of service on the Association’s Board of Directors.

MBA THANKS TOM SHECKELS FOR SEVEN YEARS OF SERVICE

There are some big shoes to fill on the Moorestown Business Association Board. After seven years, Tom Sheckels is stepping down to pursue other goals, but not without leaving a positive mark on the organization to which he devoted so much time. The MBA is grateful for the countless hours of hard work that Sheckels put in as a board member, treasurer, and web master, and will continue to benefit from the many improvements he made throughout his tenure.

Sheckels’ work for the MBA came after serving as an environmental engineer for Naval Facilities Engineering for 30 years. His job took him to US Naval bases and facilities throughout the Northeast, determining environmental deficiencies and working with Navy personnel toward solutions for the problems he identified.

When the government initiated the Base Realignment and Closure process, Sheckels’ department was consolidated and he had to make the hard decision in 2005 to relocate his family to Virginia, or remain in the area where his wife Lydia’s career was flourishing. He chose to retire from his engineering position and pursue his passion for photography, but his commitment to improve the world around him stayed intact. With the same brand of dedication he brought to his former job, he turned his eye on Moorestown where he and his wife chose to move in 1981 because of its charm—particularly historic Main Street.

After launching Sheckels Creations Photography in 2006, he joined the Moorestown Business Association and right away began to volunteer for the group by lending his technology skills to help improve and develop content for the organization’s new website. He wanted to become more involved, and in 2007 he ran for and was elected to the board of the organization, embarking on a seven-year term of community leadershi

For the last three years, Sheckels served as Board Treasurer, and contributed his expertise in upgrading and streamlining the organization’s accounting systems. He also became the MBA webmaster, keeping it up-to-date, training other board members, involving social media, and sending out other forms of communication. And there was one other service he performed for the group—whenever there was a need for a high-quality photograph, Sheckels was indisputably the best man for the job. His images have been used on the organization’s website and directories, and served to illustrate articles about the MBA in magazines and newspapers.

Sheckels decided to step down from the MBA board at the end of 2015 so he could spend more time perfecting his photography, a hobby he has cultivated since childhood when he snapped pictures with his Brownie Instamatic and developed the film himself in his father’s darkroom. After college and a stint in the Navy, the advent of digital photography rekindled his interest in the medium and he began to seriously pursue this avocation, specializing in panoramic shots. Dynamic photos of Moorestown, as well as journeys to Antarctica, Africa, Alaska and other stunning locales around the world, are featured on his website www.sheckelscreations.com.

Although no longer on the board, Sheckels remains a dedicated member of the MBA—and has spent time helping new board members transition into their positions. At the year-end MBA luncheon in December, 2015, Association President Don Powell presented Sheckels with a plaque commemorating his years of service, and said “The MBA and I personally will sincerely miss Tom's guidance and steady hand. As the MBA has grown, Tom has been Instrumental in making necessary upgrades and changes but more importantly providing a structure around which that growth could evolve. His quiet, steady council has been wonderful and will be sorely missed. I wish him only the best and am grateful for his friendship and service to the MBA.'

MBA Recognizes Maurizios Bistro with First Spotlight Award

 /></p>
<p><span style=Local Restaurant Applauded for Enhancing Appearance of Main Street

Maurizio's Bistro received Moorestown Business Association's first Spotlight Award on Tuesday, July 14 from MBA President and Vice-president Don Powell and Steven Pazienza. Moorestown Mayor Victoria Napolitano was invited to participate as a certificate of appreciation was presented to owners Maurizio and Rosie Randazzo for their outstanding efforts to brighten up the sidewalk areas in front and along the side of their restaurant.

Cheerful red umbrellas and sparkling lights canopy Maurizio's al fresco dining area, where patrons enjoy their meals amid lush planters filled with greenery and flowers. Beautifully tended planting beds frame the front of the restaurant, which is accented with benches that provide a perfect spot to enjoy a gelato. The Randazzos were intent upon making their outdoor area an inviting place for customers, and their efforts add to the charm of Moorestown's Main Street shopping corridor.

Maurizio's Bistro opened its doors in August of 2014 and was immediately welcomed by the community. 'We love the town, and enjoy giving back,' explain the Randazzos, who own a restaurant in Cinnaminson and were excited to open their second establishment in Moorestown where they live and their three children attended school. The Bistro specializes in cooked-to-order meals and artesian pizzas at lunch and dinner, and also serves breakfast on weekends—making it an ideal spot to enjoy spending time in town with family and friends.

The MBA is launching its Spotlight program as a means to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. From brightening up street-front properties, to supporting charitable causes, to providing unique services and goods for the town, the MBA wants to publicly applaud businesses that are helping to make Moorestown an outstanding place to shop, visit and live.

Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have taken or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown. Notes MBA President Powell, 'We want to make a point of thanking local businesses who goes the extra mile.'

MOORESTOWN—If you've noticed that Moorestown's Main Street is looking better than ever, it is partly because several area businesses have made a commitment to enhance and maintain the appearance of the busy corridor. Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction played a significant role in the project when they donated their expertise and materials to design and plant four large beds on the north side of the street near the Pie Lady Café.

As part of the Moorestown Business Association's ongoing effort to recognize local businesses that make an extra effort to improve the community, Beechwood was selected by the MBA to receive a 'Spotlight Award' for their hard work and dedication to help beautify the town core.

Beechwood got involved when the company's president Steve Chepurny responded to the 'Adopt a Planter' appeal from the MBA, an initiative inviting local businesses to participate in a Main Street improvement project. Chepurny, whose company specializes in full-service landscape design and construction, was delighted to get involved. A long-time Moorestown resident, Chepurny not only had the expertise to make a meaningful contribution, he's committed to helping Moorestown maintain its charm and appeal. Beechwood designed the areas to have different seasonal interest and color, and made a point to use low maintenance, hardy plants such as spirea, hydrangeas, liriope, coral bells, dwarf grasses, and spiderwort.

Chepurny launched Beechwood Landscape Architecture and Construction in 2006 after working many years for a large regional landscaping company. Headquartered in Southampton, Beechwood became an MBA member right away and services properties all over the township and throughout Burlington County. Amid a very busy schedule, the beds on Main Street still get Chepurny's attention. Along with the nearby shops and other town organizations, Beechwood employees regularly come by to water and tend the plantings.

The MBA initiated its Spotlight program as a means to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. From brightening up street-front properties, to supporting charitable causes, to providing unique services and goods for the town, the MBA wants to publicly applaud businesses that are helping to make Moorestown an outstanding place to shop, visit and live. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have taken or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.

Jersey Mikes Receives MBA Spotlight Award for Fundraising Program Benefitting Moorestown Schools

MOORESTOWN—The Moorestown franchise of Jersey Mike’s has been supporting Moorestown schools ever since it opened three years ago in East Gate Square.  The restaurant’s spirit of giving back to the community earned a certificate of recognition from the Moorestown Business Association, whose Spotlight program was initiated highlight MBA member businesses that are making a positive impact in town.

Through their monthly fundraising initiative, coordinated in the public school system through Moorestown Home & School Association, Jersey Mike’s gives customers with a “Free Sub” card a regular size sub of their choice in return for a minimum $2 donation. Each month the restaurant focuses on a specific school and provides them with 1500 cards for use on a specific date.  Moorestown’s Jersey Mike’s owner Matt Catania has a bucket for donations right on the counter, where he collects cash and checks, and he also accepts credit card donations. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Moorestown Home & School Association.

Depending on the level of participation, schools have earned between $250 and $600 per fundraiser.  These funds have enabled Home & School to contribute to numerous special projects such as purchasing A/V systems, iPads, library books, college scholarships and cultural enrichment assemblies just to name a few, said the Association’s 2nd VP, Stephanie Willard.  South Valley Elementary was featured in September, and Roberts Elementary will be the school of the month in October. The Jersey Mike’s Home & School fundraiser raised over $2,200 in the 2014-2015 school year.

In addition to the above, Jersey Mike’s hosts fundraisers for schools and community organizations in which they donate 20% of sales from a specific night back to the school or organization.  And every March, Jersey Mike’s runs its Month of Giving, throughout which they raise funds for a selected local charity.  The Moorestown restaurant is part of the Jersey Mike’s franchise chain that started in Point Pleasant Beach in 1956, which fostered a culture of local giving and community support since its inception.  Jersey Mike’s specializes in cold and hot sub sandwiches made with top-quality ingredients, freshly baked bread, and the authentic flavors that drew fans to the original store decades ago.

From brightening up street-front properties, to supporting charitable causes, to providing unique services and goods for the town, the MBA wants to publicly applaud businesses that are helping to make Moorestown an outstanding place to shop, visit and live. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have taken or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.

Hollyhock Gardeners Green Thumb on Main Street Earns MBA Award

 width=

The increasing visual appeal of Moorestown’s Main Street business district is due in part to dedicated volunteers who have responded to Moorestown Business Association’s initiative to beautify the walkways that rim the town’s central corridor. Earlier this year The Hollyhock Gardener service joined the effort and targeted two planting beds in the first block of Main Street doing what they do best—careful planning and cultivating of garden areas. Choosing plants that would remain attractive as the seasons change, the team from Hollyhock donated their time, materials and expertise to create garden areas that are still appealing as winter approaches. The MBA awarded The Hollyhock Gardener a Spotlight Award in recognition of their efforts.

Hollyhock Gardener owner Kay Stuckey Mufalli has been an active member of the MBA and Moorestown Rotary for years and, although her business is headquartered in Cinnaminson, most of her customers are Moorestown residents. Through her many connections in town, she and her company are committed to maintaining the township’s charm and beauty and she was eager to take on the Main Street project.

Stuckey is especially proud of her dedicated team of professional gardeners who treat customer’s gardens like they were their own. Over half of her crew are women, who add a unique perspective to each endeavor. The company prides itself on grooming gardens that are environmentally friendly, not “over-planned,” and with careful attention to light and color. Stuckey’s eye for design and color was honed in her first career as a fashion buyer and director in New York. But she grew up in a farming family in South Jersey where she learned horticulture from an early age, and jumped at the opportunity to start The Hollyhock Gardener over 20 years ago.

The MBA initiated its Spotlight program as a means to highlight local businesses that are making a positive impact on the community. From brightening up street-front properties, to supporting charitable causes, to providing unique services and goods for the town, the MBA wants to publicly applaud businesses that are helping to make Moorestown an outstanding place to shop, visit and live. Business owners and residents are invited to contact the MBA to share information about initiatives they have taken or businesses they know that have taken measures to improve Moorestown.
