Paintings by Lorraine Robertson

Lorraine Robertson, a resident of Chester, is an award-winning artist who paints mainly in oil, but also in watercolor, pastel and acrylic. Of the fact that she seems to paint all subjects: figures, nudes, still lifes, seascapes cityscapes, animals, florals, and landscapes, she says, “That is because I see beauty everywhere and want to capture it on canvas. The best part is sharing my excitement and enthusiasm for that beauty with those who view my art.”
On exhibit through September 30th

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and as you may know, Bernardsville lost two very young children over the past year to cancer: Campbell Hoyt (8 yrs old) and Conner Crooks (3 yrs old).
The Team Campbell Foundation was established as a 501 (c) 3 this past January, to continue Campbell's mission of love, hope and caring for families impacted by childhood cancer. Our mission is to bring awareness, help fund research, and support families impacted by Childhood Cancer. All current board members also live in Bernardsville.
The Borough of Bernardsville supports us on our mission and is allowing us to Go Gold where we can for the month of September. Some of the businesses in the area that are also supporting TCM are: Prestige Auto, Rossi Management, Rebecca Collection, O-PA, and Plaza Salon.
We are preparing lawn signs and gold bows for resident's homes and some businesses as mentioned above.
We would love the support of as many area businesses as possible. We are preparing 8 1/2 X 11" versions of the lawn signs (Image attached) that we are hoping business will put up in their store front windows to help us spread awareness (signs supplied by us at no cost).
We would also love for Restaurants to give out little awareness stickers to their patrons when they give them their checks (image attached).
There is no cost to the business! What is most important to TCF, is building awareness!
We were hoping you could let the businesses know that a volunteer from Team Campbell Foundation would be stopping by to ask permission to put up the signs sometime next week. Of course if they would prefer we not stop by, just let me know and we will not as we want to ensure that we maintain the best relationship within our community!
If any businesses would like to support our September Childhood Cancer Awareness efforts in a bigger way, we do have several sponsorship opportunities available. TCF is sponsoring the Somerset Patriots GO GOLD Game on 9/12. We are looking for a Sponsor (or sponsors) for one of the Boxes so that we can invite children with cancer to the game for free and give them this special area. Because they are often weak and not feeling well it is hard for them to attend unless there is a safe place for them.
Or maybe local business can just have the flyers for tickets to the game (image attached and we can provide) in there store, for patrons who might be interested in purchasing tickets.
We have other ways businesses who are interested can help as well, like purchasing Large Lawn signs from TCF and putting them around their property! If any local business would like to speak with me about how they can help, they can call me directly at 908-499-7894.
Best regards,
Genene Sullivan
Vice President
Team Campbell Foundation
