Beverly Friend gives a presentation on the Lenni Lenape Indians May 9

“South Jersey’s Lenni Lenape Indians” will be the topic of a talk by Native American Beverly Friend at Haddonfield United Methodist Church on Saturday night, May 9 following a potluck supper starting at 6:30 p.m.

Ms. Friend, of Cherokee heritage, but an expert on numerous Indian tribes, will bring with her a wide variety of Lenni Lenape artifacts that will be on display for audience members to view up close.

This program, but not the potluck supper, is free and open to the public and is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Those wishing to attend the potluck supper prior to Ms. Friend’s talk are asked to bring a dish to share, plus $7 to help cover costs. Everyone is welcome, but should contact Mary Fedele at (856) 988–2086 or so the church knows how many places to set for supper. Ms. Friend will begin her presentation around 7:30 p.m.

This event is being sponsored by the church’s Saturday nighters social group, which has been going strong for over 60 years. Newcomers are always welcome. The event will be held in the lower-level social hall of the church at 29 Warwick Road, Haddonfield. Parking is at the rear of the church and entrance that evening will be through the rear double doors.
