Crossing 'The Bridge' to the holidays
The Bridge at Cherry Hillâ€™s annual Fall Festival featured everything from lipstick and make-up to homemade jewelry and artificial floral arrangements. The event was held on Saturday, Nov. 17.
â€śWe try,â€ť said Gayle Raposa, the activities director at The Bridge at Cherry Hill. â€śThis is for our residents and shoppers; we try to make it special.â€ť
Raposa and The Bridge at Cherry Hill succeeded on two counts, as the Fall Festival lead to a large collection of non-perishable food items that were then given to the Johnston Senior Center as part of its annual food shelf restocking and Thanksgiving Baskets.
Denise Salisburyâ€™s unique M.I.N.E. display, though, was the highlight of the six-hour event.
â€śM.I.N.E. translates into Made in New England,â€ť said Salisbury, who lives in Providence. â€śThey call me a Jill of all trades; I do photography, interior design, childrenâ€™s clothes and accessories, special order wedding and prom gowns.â€ť
As an added highlight, volunteers and staffers donated pizza strips, hot dogs and potato chips, donuts and a variety of pastries that made up the Festivalâ€™s Food Court.
