Newark Life Spring 2017 issue

Certainly one of the best things about producing a magazine that shines a spotlight on Newark is meeting people like University of Delaware physical therapy professor Cole Galloway, who is providing new hope to traumatic brain injury survivors everywhere with his groundbreaking research and innovative techniques to help those with mobility issues. We update readers about the GoBabyGo program. As our writers and photographers were working on this issue, we also got to meet Linda Majewski, who brings experience and a smile to her new role as the executive director of the Newark Arts Alliance. Speaking of art, in this issue we profile Peter Saenger, who has been creating tableware and artworks that people love since the 1970s. We also look at the efforts to complete Preston's Playground, which launched last year through a collaboration between Fusion Fitness, Preston's March for Energy, the City of Newark and hundreds of contributors. The goal of the project is to build an inclusive, 8,400-square-foot playground where able-bodied children will be able to play side by side with children with disabilities. We celebrate Newark's history with a story about the Thomas Cooch House, which is just a stone's throw from Cooch's Bridge Battlefield. We also have a story about Vision A Cappella, which is the University of Delaware’s Christian a cappella group. We hope you enjoy the stories in this issue of Newark Life!
