The Community Building Project Exhibit

Location: The Baird
5 Mead St, South Orange, NJ
When: February 5, 2012
Time: 12:00 pm–4:00 pm

The Community Building Project was an architecture class that was offered to the SOMa district elementary students last autumn.  The response to the class was overwhelming and the results were a huge success!  The students made an incredible effort and produced great work.  
Students in grades 3-5 who participated in the after-school enrichment class were introduced to urban planning, scale, and building types.  Each school was given a portion of a map (of Maplewood and South Orange) to develop into their own "town".  Students at each school collaborated to plan zones for their towns.  Then, each student designed and constructed their own building from reused chipboard boxes.  Taught by parent architects and designers, the program was a collaborative effort and was conceived to unify the students within the district's elementary schools.  An exhibit with all five schools' towns will be presented together for one day. 
The Community Building Project invites you to join us at the exhibit.  Sunday, February 5th from noon to 4:00 p.m. at the Baird, 5 Mead Street in South Orange.
The Architects and Designers are:
Jung Lee Masters, Clinton
Paul Westhelle, Jefferson
Devyani Guha, Seth Boyden
Maia Gilman, South Mountain
Cami Zelevansky and Monika Parkitna, Tuscan

Meet “President Lincoln” on his official birthday Sunday February 12th !

Location: Macculloch Hall Historical Museum
45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ
When: February 12, 2012
Time: 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

On Sunday February 12th celebrate Lincoln’s birthday by visiting Macculloch Hall Historical Museum to meet “President Lincoln,” portrayed by Civil War reenactor Bob Costello. Mr. Costello has a unique way of making you feel that you are actually in the presence of the 16th U.S. President!  “President Lincoln” will be available between 1pm and 4pm to meet museum guests, answer questions and even have his picture taken with visitors to the “Gone for a Soldier:” Jerseymen in the Civil War exhibit.  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum in collaboration with the New Jersey Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee (NJCW150) presents this major exhibit which commemorates the participation and heroism of Jerseymen in a major turning point in U.S. history.  Until now, many of the stories of the major contributions of Jerseymen to the Civil War effort have remained untold. “Gone for a Soldier:” Jerseymen in the Civil War makes a major contribution toward telling these stories. The exhibit brings together for the first time nearly two hundred objects from the Civil War from over thirty museums, historical societies, and private collections.

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum has its own connections to Civil War history. Lindley Hoffman Miller, son of U.S. Senator Jacob Miller and grandson of George and Louisa Macculloch, led the First Regiment of Arkansas Volunteers of African Descent.  Commissioned as a captain in 1863, Miller shared his war experience through letters to his family, which are on special display at the museum this February. 

The museum also holds the largest single collection of Thomas Nast original works in the United States. Among this collection are many of Nast’s drawings of Civil War subjects such as A Gallant Color-Bearer (Harper’s Weekly, September 20, 1862) and The Drummer Boy of Our Regiment in Action (Harper’s Weekly, December 19, 1863), which were generally thought to influence the course of the war.

A Civil War Lecture Series in conjunction with the exhibit will be held monthly starting on February 22nd at 7pm when Joe Bilby will present “Freedom to All,” NJ Black Troops in the Civil War.  Full details about the lectures, other book signings, and family-friendly events can be viewed on the museum’s website and Facebook events page.

The New Jersey Sesquicentennial Committee, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, a volunteer organization working for increased awareness and recognition of New Jersey’s important role in the Civil war, has been recognized by the New Jersey Governor and both houses of the New Jersey legislature.

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum preserves the history of the Macculloch-Miller families, the Morris area community, and the legacy of its founder W. Parsons Todd through its historic site, collections, exhibits, and educational and cultural programs. The Museum is open to tour the house and view exhibits on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. General Admission: Adults $8; Seniors & Students $6; Children 6 – 12 $4.

Five Keys to a Successful Interview

Diana Gáler, Ph.D., ACC

Monday February 6, 10 am – 12 noon

Maplewood/South Orange Professionals In Transition

Maplewood Public Library, 51 Baker St. ~ Maplewood, NJ 07040

In this workshop Dr. Diana Gáler will share her tips for gaining the confidence and assurance necessary for a successful interview.

A successful interview requires three things, Preparation, Preparation and Preparation. However, many job seekers do not prepare in a way that helps them showcase their talents, skills and prior experience to be most attractive to employers. In this workshop you will learn how to feel more comfortable and confident whether the interview is on the phone or in-person. Also, you will learn how to create and practice your responses in a way that answers the employers’ questions effectively and helps you stay on message. And you will also craft the questions that will help you determine if the employer provides an environment where you can succeed. You will be prepared for the dreaded “Do you have any questions?”

Dr. Diana Gáler helps mid-career professionals find their groove again. She has been coaching scientists and managers, mainly from the pharmaceutical industry like herself, who are contemplating or in the midst of major career transitions. Clients and participants in her six-part workshop, Career Happiness, say that her help was invaluable in their career transformations plans and that they could not have done it otherwise.

In addition to her coaching practice, Dr. Gáler is a volunteer with the Metro Chapter of the Healthcare Business Women’s Association (HBA) where she has been a mentor and executive coach since 2011.

Dr. Gáler is a scientist by education and experience and a coach by vocation. She founded Gáler Coaching for Excellence in 2009. Originally from Argentina, she is fluent in Spanish and is available to coach in both English and Spanish. She has been a resident of Maplewood since February 2011 and is excited to be able to offer this free workshop to the Professionals in Transition Group.

For information on her Career Transformation newsletter, coaching practice or an upcoming Career Happiness workshop series, please contact Gáler Coaching for Excellence at info@theteamdoc.com
