It is with great sadness that Pennsauken Historical Society notes the passing of a devoted volunteer and officer, a partner in many ways with our former Society President, and a staunch member of our community, Beverly Fitzpatrick. In the photo she and her husband Joseph Fitzpatrick receive recognition for their work with the Historical Society and other things, from the Township in 2011.

It is with great sadness that Pennsauken Historical Society notes the passing of Joan Weber on July 30. Joan was a volunteer, docent, and officer of Pennsauken Historical Society of many years’ standing. She was effectively the hostess of many events at Burrough-Dover House and, along with her husband John Weber, carried on the work of the Society after the retirement of long-time President Joseph Fitzpatrick. Joan’s involvement in her community extended beyond the Historical Society, often inextricably linked to her role as a mother, including as an assistant teacher in the school district, in Scouting and in a variety of roles in PTA. Joan was a warm and welcoming presence for Pennsauken Historical Society and her community and that presence will be greatly missed.

Pennsauken Historical Society sadly notes the passing of volunteer Adele Haines, age 103. Until only a few years ago Adele was a mainstay at Burrough-Dover House, greeting visitors and revealing history. She was also a dedicated quilter and demonstrated that craft at our historic home as well. Adele Haines was an honored officer and valued volunteer of the kind who lend a historical organization life and personality. She will be missed.

With deep sadness, Pennsauken Historical Society notes the passing of a great friend of history, LuAnne Hill. An enthusiastic volunteer and officer of Pennsauken Historical Society for several years, LuAnne brought self-deprecating humor, an impressive breadth of knowledge of history and culture, and real initiative to our organization. She was the founding spirit behind our Pennsauken Area Historical Book Club, revised and enlivened our volunteer materials, and also helped out with any project others undertook. LuAnne could also tell a great yarn. She will be greatly missed.

What a gorgeous day for a kayak expedition when our friends from Penn Paddle journeyed up Pennsauken Creek from near Griffith Morgan House up with the tide to Burrough-Dover House where they stopped for lunch then back with the receding tide to near Griffith Morgan House! We were happy to provide our hospitality and a tour at each house, too!

Historic Burrough-Dover House recently was pleased to host the annual fundraiser event for Freedom Center for Wildlife, "Brunch with the Bunny." Here are some of our pix of that great, fun day for families and friends of local wildlife.

Come out to see the animals, the grounds and trail, and more, and enjoy a fine spring day of history and nature!
