John Hunt

BEST Event*


Timely, Riveting

HCC BEST 9348.jpg

Room 301 was filled to capacity at Kramer Hall Thursday morning February 7th as John Hunt, AtlantiCare Corporate Director of Security and Emergency Management, gave a passionate presentation on a subject that has become too common - mass shootings. His experience throughout the world in research of the mindset of the perpetrator and the victims' reactions was a revelation to all in attendance. A discussion followed in which Mr. Hunt detailed the most appropriate life saving tactics to be utilized, so that the potential victims will not only survive, but "win" the day.

*BEST (Business Education Series Today) Events are scheduled throughout the year - subject matter is current and productive, not only in an economic sense, but for well-being of owners, management and employees of local businesses.


Thanks to all who attended our Holiday Mixer at the Annata Wine Bar on Wednesday December 5th

It was an outstanding evening with good people, good food and good cheer. Add more thanks to Casciano Coffee Bar & Sweetery for the coffee station and Mannino's Cannoli Express for the delicious dessert tray. As usual, the Annata food was exceptional.


Dress was business casual at our Holiday Mixer, but we are not sure in what category we can put (L) VP Ben Ott’s Festive Jacket! He’s chatting with trustee Dave Damiano.

Great food, Great music by Nicky G and Stealing Savanah (the band was rewarded with leftover 20 cannoli during their break), the Cruisin’ Classics Car Show, along with almost 100 crafters and food

 vendors, plus Kiddie Rides and the Kiwanis Breakfast, made for a record-breaking (unofficial) day.

"Take the Cannoli!"

We honored the BERRY, as the commercial said, but this year’s festival had a Cannoli undertone. It was hot and muggy, but nobody seemed to care, as they enjoyed the bounty of Hammonton’s special crop. Special guest, Competitive Eater Carmen Cincotti, challenged three local celebrities; Deputy Mayor Tom Gribbin, Board of Education President Sam Mento and Hammonton Police Lt. Kevn Friel to an “eat-off.” He would eat more mini-blueberry cannoli (supplied by Mannino's Cannoli Express) than the three of them COMBINED, in a 6-minute span. The results – Gribbin 9, Mento 9, Friel 16. So Carmen had to down more than 34. Is 64 more than 34? Rhetorical question. Carmen demolished them and established a very unofficial world’s record.
