Local developer is new owner of Caruso’s
The new owner of Caruso’s Market is John Capoferri, an area developer, who assured customers that, though there will be improvements and changes, the store would remain a “full-service grocery store.”

PCCH Pre-Kindergarten to exhibit at Woodmere
Artwork by 96 students in the Pre Kindergarten School at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill will be on display at the Woodmere Art Museum, starting Sunday, April 27.
The exhibit, titled “Shades of Imagination,” will be in the Helen Millard Children’s Gallery at Woodmere. While the gallery has had art displays from other schools before, PCCH Pre-Kindergarten is unique because it is the only school with such young children invited to exhibit. The children, who range in age from 2 to 5, will display individual and group work.
The project began a year ago when Woodmere’s educational director invited PCCH Pre-Kindergarten to exhibit its artwork. This will be the second time the school has collaborated with Woodmere, and School Director Margot Cohn said she was “thrilled” to have the opportunity.
“I think we were invited because our teachers have imaginative and challenging ideas for art projects, enthusiastically present the basic ideas to the children and then encourage the children to freely express themselves through their art work, allowing them to work independently,” Cohn said. “The resulting art work is astonishing.”
Between now and the end of May, in celebration of the 38th anniversary of Earth Day, volunteers from the CHCA will be marking storm drains in Chestnut Hill with medallions that read “Yo! No Dumping! Drains to River.”
