Greetings from the Cape May County Campus–April 10, 2015

By Lisa Apel-Gendron

April has turned into event month at CMCC!

The Women’s History Month art exhibit, sponsored by S.G.A. and CMCC Student Services, wrapped up March 30 with a “meet the artist” reception in the dining room. A group of students from Middle Township Middle School attended as well, and it looks as though everyone had a fine time!

What has become an annual tradition at CMCC, the Model Passover Seder, sponsored by S.G.A. and CMCC Student Services, took place April 9 in the dining room, with students from Neil Brandt’s World Religions class playing the lead parts. Students could sample traditional Passover fare while learning about history and culture during the lunch hour.
