THE SPITFIRE GRILL

A feisty parolee follows her dreams to a small town, based on a page from an old travel book, and finds a place for herself working at Hannah’s Spitfire Grill. It is for sale but there are no takers for the only eatery in the depressed town, so newcomer Percy suggests to Hannah that she raffle it off. Entry fees are one hundred dollars and the best essay on why you want the grill wins. Soon, mail is arriving by the wheelbarrow full and things are definitely cookin’ at the Spitfire Grill. Filled with an abundance of warmth, spirit, and some of the most infectious melodies to hit the stage in decades!

Museum’s duck decoy collection moves to Hammonton, for now

HAMMONTON, N.J. - Some 300 ducks are nesting in the third-floor storage room of Hammonton’s Town Hall.

The ducks — decoys from the collection of Fred Noyes — are among about 3,000 items from the Noyes Museum collection that were recently unpacked by volunteers as the museum continues its transition under Stockton University.

“It took a week and a half just to get it all here,” museum director Michael Cagno told The Press of Atlantic City. He helped move the collection at the end of December.

The original Noyes Museum on Lily Lake Road in Galloway Township closed to the public in January 2016 after building repairs and problems with the HVAC system made the site too costly to remain.

In August, Stockton officially took over as owner of the museum and its art collection as part of an agreement with the Mr. and Mrs. Fred Winslow Noyes Foundation and the Noyes Museum board.

The foundation owns the Galloway lakefront building, which is up for sale. Paul Striefsky, an agent with Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach in Northfield, said the site, which was listed last summer for $895,000, has generated interest but as yet no buyer. The site is zoned residential but had a variance for use as a museum, so it would also need a variance for any commercial use. Striefsky said proposals have included a restaurant and student housing for Stockton.

The museum has shifted its primary exhibit and programming efforts to the Arts Garage in Atlantic City and Kramer Hall in Hammonton, both operated by Stockton. Works also are exhibited at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club, Shore Medical Center and AtlantiCare.
