The Haddonfield Dreams initiative is brought to you by the Haddonfield Foundation. So many things around us that we now take for granted were once someone’s crazy idea. Crows Woods, for example, was once a trash dump. That is what the Haddonfield Foundation is all about — challenging people to dream wild dreams, and then working together to make those dreams a reality.
A call to the community:
Go to www.haddonfieldfoundation.org/dreams to see the list of “Dreams” we’ve collected from the community so far. Please be sure to add your own ‘Dream” to the list.
