The relatively cool summer, along with ample TLC from the CMCC grounds team, has left the grounds looking the best ever in the building’s nine-year history.

There is plenty going on in the upcoming weeks. Wendy Gray, advising, has arranged a workshop on Stockton’s teacher education program Sept. 29, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. in room 103. On Oct. 10, CMCC will host the countywide K-12 teacher in-service day, covering career exploration. The Open House is Oct. 13, followed by the transfer fair Oct. 16.

Chris Carrozza, the college’s Valic representative, will visit CMCC Oct. 22, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., in room 103. Chris will offer retirement planning information and a workshop for those interested in maximizing their Social Security benefit. For more information, contact Chris at

The Cape May County Chamber of Commerce is offering a series of workshops for its members at CMCC during October and November, covering pertinent topics ranging from social media and marketing to dealing with difficult customers. Questions? Contact Esther Gandica at

Circle K Club always welcomes new members. Meetings are generally held Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. in room 215. For more information, contact faculty advisor Donna Marie McElroy at Circle K is the collegiate arm of Kiwanis Club International.

We continue to host the Statewide Youth Advisory Board meeting every other Friday afternoon. This board of teens and young adults is convened by Rutgers’ School of Social Work in Camden.

Did you know that CMCC also has a water bottle refill station? The facilities team installed it in August, just in time for New Student Orientation. To date, nearly 700 plastic bottles have been kept out of the waste stream because of this station. It is located on the first floor classroom wing, near room 105. So, bring your reusable bottle and fill ‘er up!

If you need a flu shot, don’t forget about the Cape May County Health Department’s free, drive-through flu clinic Sunday, Oct. 5, 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Kindle Autoplaza, exit 9 of the Parkway. Download a consent form here  and bring with you. You can’t beat the price and convenience!
