Page 10 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • April 29, 2009 Emmanuel asks... Can You Help? Emmanuel Cancer Foundation thanks the following: Girl Scout Troop #207 of Oakland for the contribution of Girl Scout Cookies, and Curves of Wyckoff for the recent food collection. With the weather starting to warm up and nature reviving, we would like to suggest that you think ahead to Mother’s Day. This year we are asking our readers to participate in honoring the ECF mothers who have children with cancer. Motherhood is a demanding job in normal circumstances, but with a child in a chronically sick and life threatening condition, life can become unmanageable and out of control. We strive to ease the burden for these moms with a package of support, but in order to provide our services we need your help. You can participate 4-29-09 karen/janinein three different ways: make a contribution in honor of Mother, and we will send a card EmmanuelHelp2x.75(4-29-09) Day Tea packet from noting your gift; ask for a Mother’s our office 3 x .75 and learn how you can hold a tea party with friends anytime in the next month (not necessarily on Mother’s Day); or privately raise a cup in your own home to honor ECF moms. We will even supply the teabags! Tea parties can be as elaborate or as simple as you would like. Some folks are holding an English tea complete with scones, finger foods, and a selection of teas. We urge you to participate in one of these celebrations. You can also read a letter from one of ECF’s moms on our blog at: http://www.emmanuelcancer.blogspot. com/. Suzie begins, “My name is Suzie and I am the mother of a child with cancer. My son, Jake, was diagnosed at age six with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Our family could not have gotten through this difficult journey without the support we received from the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation.” Please take a moment to read her full story. To help in any way: Call us at (201) 612-8118 before you stop by. Please do not leave items at center without checking with us first. Our storage space is limited. Our current hours are Monday 10 to 1; Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10 to 5; Thursdays 10 to 2; and Saturdays, 10 to 1. Our address is 174 Paterson Avenue, Midland Park, NJ 07432.

Partnership blossoms Professor Susan Gruben and students from Bergen Community College who are learning about plant propagation recently visited Rohsler’s Allendale Nursery & Florist to gain a better understanding of greenhouse structures used to grow plants commercially. Nursery co-owner Bruce Rohsler, a member of the Bergen Community College & Horticulture Advisory Committee, gave the students a firsthand look at the nursery’s different types of greenhouses and the various aspects of greenhouse plant production and management. Rohsler’s Allendale Nursery has had a longstanding relationship with BCC and has employed, and currently employs, many of its horticulture students.
