Greetings from the Cape May County Campus–April 24, 2015

By Lisa Apel-Gendron

The parade of events continues through the end of April at CMCC. A hearty thank you goes out to SGA for its support of numerous events this semester at CMCC.

April 21 was one of the more engaging days of the semester. Atlantic Cape students, 55 Middle Township Middle School students, and members of the community were treated to a live performance of the play A Comb & A Prayer Book, presented by the Stockton University players. Part of the Atlantic Cape-Stockton Holocaust Awareness Program, this performance chronicled the life of Hungarian-born Elizabeth Blum Goldstein, who, by the age of 19, had survived six concentration camps. Actors were primarily Stockton students, complemented by several Stockton alumni. After the play, audience members – 100 strong – were able to ask questions of the actors. From all accounts, it was a most moving and memorable experience. Continue reading

Keegan Parker Findeison

I would like everyone to meet my grandson, Keegan Parker Findeison, who is our miracle baby.  He was born in September, but was not home with the whole family until December, just before Christmas, and  is now six months old. Keegan has Holoprosencephaly- which happens to one in every 250 pregnancies; only 3 percent of those pregnancies survive until birth, and only 1 percent of that 3 percent survive passed 6 months! Just 1 percent! These babies are truly miracles and every day we get to have with them is a blessing and should be celebrated! He is my little warrior man. Continue reading
