What Cow Doctors Do
Find Out What Cow Doctors Do
Presented by Charlie Gardner
Join us for a talk with Charlie Gardner, retired dairy veterinarian, as he discusses his extensive experience in the industry and the stories that came from it. He will also discuss his new memoir, The Blessed Life of a Cow Doctor.
"Growing up next to his uncle’s dairy farm, Dr. Charles E. Gardner was curious about the world of dairy farming from an early age. After deciding to become a bovine veterinarian, Gardner enjoyed a lengthy career as a cow doctor – one that allowed him to work with dairy farmers on a daily basis, positively impacted his family, taught him unforgettable life lessons and helped spark his adventurous spirit."

Join us to learn about victory gardens and their role during wartime.
The world is at war. Food is scarce. Everything is rationed. How can you help? Plant a victory garden! Dig for Victory!
Bernard Sypniewski was born some time ago and shortly thereafter he began gardening. His first crop was radishes. After school, his legal practice, and teaching at Rowan University (computer science), Bernard started building raised beds. He now has 3. Bernard especially likes tomatoes and peppers of all sorts, including wild ones. He has a fascination with anything old; hence the topic of the current talk.

Join us for an outdoor art show featuring the works of Dressler Smith, local artist.
Dressler Smith is a painter, author, pastel colorist, and stained window designer who favors tranquil landscapes which invoke both awe and reverence. Her work is designed to touch the human spirit.
Many of her works focus on landscapes of sunrises, morning light and morning skies, which, for her, symbolize new beginnings. She has chosen pastel as her primary medium because of its vibrancy. The clean, rich colors of pure pigment, combined with her affinity for nature and all things spiritual, result in landscapes filled with peace and tranquility, and a place to start anew. Dressler's art has been received by Oprah Winfrey, former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, and the late Coretta Scott King.
In addition to her work as a painter, Dressler has developed recognition for designing stained glass windows. She has designed windows for St. John Baptist Church in East Camden, NJ, First Nazarene Baptist Church in Camden, NJ, and the Asbury United Methodist Church in Woodlynne, NJ.
