What better way to celebrate the dreary end of winter and warm weather and beautiful flowers than to organize on a pizza party? That is exactly what the Activities Department recently did for many of Pitman Manor’s Healthcare residents.
“Our residents don’t get an opportunity to have pizza very often so this was a special treat for them. They got to enjoy one of their favorite foods as well as each other’s company. On the morning of the pizza party we learned that students from the PRISM School of Nursing would be doing their clinicals at the Manor that day and decided to invite them to join in the fun as well,” said Carrol Stella, Pitman Manor’s Director of Activities.
Here students from the PRISM School of Nursing take time to pose for photos with Pitman Manor residents during the recent Healthcare Residence pizza party.
Join us this Thursday April 25th at 7:00 p.m. in the Pitman High School auditorium for the third annual “Pitman’s Got Talent” to raise money for the PHS Drama Program.
Come check out Pitman’s talented musicians,artists, singers, dancers and rappers! Tickets are only $5.00 at the door!
Ryan Pierson has been awarded the professional designation of “Chief Fire Officer” (CFO). The Commission on Professional Credentialing (CPC) met on March 5, 2013 to officially confer the designation upon Chief Pierson. He is one of less than only 900 CFO’s worldwide and one of twelve CFO’s in New Jersey.
The Commission awards the CFO designation only after an individual meets the organization’s stringent criteria. The process includes an assessment of the applicant’s education, experience, professional development, technical competencies, contributions to the profession, and community involvement. In addition, all applicants are required to identify a future professional development plan. The CFO program uses a comprehensive peer review model to evaluate candidates seeking this credential.
Currently he manages the Fire Prevention Bureau for the Borough of Pitman. In this position he oversees inspections, housing code compliance, fire investigations, and public education programs. He has served with the Highland Chemical Engine Company in Pitman for 16 years and held the positions of Assistant Fire Chief and Municipal Fire Chief.
Chief Pierson has a rich knowledge of the emergency services profession and has far surpassed critical core competencies for personnel serving in senior fire officer positions. Chief Pierson is the first member of the Pitman Fire Department to earn this distinguished designation.
The Commission on Professional Credentialing, an entity of the Center for Public Safety Excellence, Inc., (CPSE) administers the CFO Designation Program. The CPC consists of individuals from academia, federal and local government, and the fire and emergency medical services profession.

HEAD COACH: STEVE SKINNER
Coach Skinner started working at Lake Kandle in the summer of 2000 and
served 12 seasons as our manager. He understands our commitment to our
members and that everything we do here is about providing a fun,
family oriented atmosphere.
Steve Skinner is also a very experienced and talented coach. For the
last 12 years, he has been head coach of Clearview Regional High
School’s Swim Team. During that span, Clearview has grown into one of
South Jersey’s top teams, making the playoffs 12 years in a row. Under
his tutelage, his swimmers have broken the majority of school records
and two of his swimmers have become state champions.
Assistant Head Coaches:
All absences are excused if accompanied by a note from the parent. Summer is about fun, and we understand that families have other obligations and take vacations. If you are away on vacation for the week, but will be able to make the meet, make sure you inform Coach Skinner after Friday’s practice that your child will be able to swim.
If something comes up before the meet and you are unable to attend, please get ahold of Coach Skinner immediately, so that he can adjust his swim meet roster. There would be nothing worse than to tell 3 other kids that they can’t swim in the relay because your child was a no-show.
