Keeping Up With Collingswood: Spring 2021

-

It’s all in the details: When it comes to your social calendar, change is … not always good. But sometimes it’s inevitable. In the event of cancelations and postponements, be sure to double check the status of the following events before attending.

Clean up, clean up

Sustainable Collingswood has planned a series of cleanup events at Knight Park, set for the first and third Saturday of each month, starting March 20 and ending in November. Starting at 9 a.m., volunteers are asked for an hour of their time to help beautify the park. Supplies will be provided. Learn more at www.collingswood.com.

Collingswood Restaurant Week

Take advantage of prix fixe menus at a number of borough restaurants from April 11-16. Meals will be available for both dining in and taking out, and reservations are limited. The borough plans to close the avenue and expand outdoor seating. Masks and social distancing required. Check out participating restaurants and menus at www.collingswood.com.

“Egg”cellent Fun

Collingswood High School PTA members are playing Easter Bunny in April, when they will fill your yard with candy-filled eggs! (And for those who prefer, a basket full of eggs is available, too.) Choose 25 eggs for $20, 35 eggs for $30 or 40 eggs for $40. Orders must be placed by Friday, March 26. Discover all the details on the PTA’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/groups/CollingswoodHighSchoolPTA.

Collingswood Reads Book Club

Love to read? Love to talk about it?
