A New Look!

February 4, 2014 Uncategorized Comments Off on A New Look!

We have a new look! Recently we had the opportunity to upgrade the website and consolidate some information. We know with change finding the information you need may be a little different at first. So here are a few helpful hints:

  • The menu has changed a bit, so please take some time to search through it.
  • If you need a quick find of information, use the “Search” widget on the right side. Type in the word you are looking for and a list of pages will come up. CLICK on the title to open the page.
  • We have our hours listed on both the right side widget and in the menu.
  • And last, but not least, our donate button is easily visible.

Our new masthead is a compilation of local art. The Haddon Fire Company lent us one of their historical drawings, the text is a local vintage wedding license and we wrap it up with a pencil drawing of Greenfield Hall and Mickle House.

We hope you like the new look. Look around and let us know.
