First Time EVER! Upstairs at Whitall House!

Today, the Whitall House is open for our monthly field day and for the first time ever, two of the upstairs rooms will be open to the public at 15 minute intervals.  Only 5 people at a time can go up due to egress issues and the fire marshall but if you can't get up, call for an appt. or visit during open days Thurs - Sun 1-4.

Also, a speakers series has been arranged at the Whitall House - great progress has been happening at our site::
Next - August 7th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. David Barnes of the Univ of Penn will present on Yellow Fever, followed by audience Questions/Answers and Discussion.  The woman of the house Ann Whitall, died of yellow fever in the late 1790's at the age of 81. 
Oct. 2th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., The Mutter Museum's Anna Dhody will be giving a presentation on midwifery followed by QA and Disc.  If you are a fan of Call the Midwife on Ch. 12, as I am. you won't want to miss this lecture!
Call 856-843-5120 to reserve a spot or e-mail jjanofsky@countyco.gloucester.nj.us

Hope to see you there!

Also, a quick Vegan/Vegetarian not:  At the historic Woodbury Train Station built in 1883, I had the most delicious veggie burger.  I'm more of a salad lover, generally, but this burger was noteworthy.  Also, I'm delighted to see every restaurant I patronize has now a robust and growing vegan/vegetarian list of items.
Noteworthy as well, The Ocean Cafe in Ocean City, on the boardwalk, excellent fresh food always and also a nice assortment of vegan/vegetarian selections.  Bon appetit!

Happy Trails,'
Jo Ann
