Comcast Cares Day Aboard the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey  | Camden | New Jersey | United States
 Employees from Comcast offices in the Philadelphia area will spend Friday, April 20 at the Battleship — not to take a tour, but rather to volunteer to paint, chip, clean, landscape, and more on and around the ship.
 Last year, several hundred Comcast employees helped the Battleship with several projects, including moving the mooring lines off the pier.
 The board, staff and volunteers of the Battleship salutes and thanks all Comcast employees for volunteering to help the Big J!

Little Lights by the Edison Foundation @ Battleship New Jersey
Did you know that Thomas Edison was awarded a Navy Distinguished Service Medal? In the inaugural Little Lights by the Edison Foundation, we are learning about the electric telegraph.
Our latest exhibit, USS New Jersey: Past, Present and Future, will be our focus for this 90 minute program where we will look at how the original USS New Jersey, BB16 from 1906 – 1920 communicated. This program is designed for preschoolers and their families, and includes a tour of the new exhibit and a hands on activity of how to use a telegraph.
The activity will take place in the Officers’ Wardroom beginning at 10am on Jan. 11.  Free with ticketed admission. Pre-Registration highly suggested, space is limited: L.Jones@BattleshipNewJersey.org
