W
e all know that the story of George Balanchine’s
The Nutcracker™ is imagined in the dream of a lit-
tle girl. When the Pennsylvania Ballet’s 42nd pro-
duction opened on December 4th, a fantastic dream came
to life for another little girl on stage at the Academy of Music.
Annika Bergofin took her first formal ballet class last
February at Philadelphia Studio Ballet in Haverford. Within
a few months of starting she was moved to a higher level.
This was positive encouragement that boosted her confi-
dence—much needed because things weren’t going as well
in school. Annika has a learning disability – dyscalculia –
that is specific to math. Even though she had been talking
in full sentences since she was one year old and showed great
maturity and imagination for her age, first and second grade
math were not clicking for her, leading to frustration and
anxiety that affected almost everything in her life. Like many
other creative, intelligent children, Annika didn’t fit neatly
into a box, or on a bell curve for that matter. Her parents
hoped to find a school that would embrace her obvious
artistic strengths, restore her self-esteem, and help her learn
in a way that would work for her.
They found that in AIM—Academy In Manayunk.
There was great buzz about AIM. But, their biggest ques-
tion was about the math curriculum. Were the resources for
a math learning disability as strong as those for reading?
Would the teachers celebrate the fact that Annika was real-
ly good at coloring outside the lines, and liked to dance
down the hall between classes? Could they help her accom-
plish academic success with a different approach? Through
discussions with an educational psychologist and school
learning director, attending two AIM open houses, and meet-
ing with other AIM parents, Lisa and Bill Bergofin knew that
the Academy’s individualized arts-based and immersion
style of learning would be a great fit for their daughter.
So, in September, Annika became a happy third grader at
AIM, thriving in the creativity with which her teachers ap-
proach lessons. At ballet class her teacher, Ballet Mistress
R
eceiving rave reviews and being
featured in magazines is Leonard
Szymczak’s latest book, The
Roadmap Home (Booksurge –
Division of Amazon.com). This
insightful book masterfully
blends the author’s thirty-five years as a
therapist with his own personal challenges
faced in life, and results in an inspiring guide
that will steer readers through their own
spiritual awakening.
In his amazing book, the author has covered
the gamut from personal growth and spiri-
tuality to guidance for those needing help
in their quest for inner peace.
With the Holidays here, this
time of year can oftentimes
be difficult for individuals
who are lonely or are remind-
ed of better days with lost
loved ones. Whatever the
reason, Szymczak shows how
we can use our ever-present
GPS (‘Guiding Power of Spirit’)
to light up our road to love
and contentment.
The Roadmap Home has been
featured in the September
issue of Black Tie magazine
and reviewed in the Novem-
ber issue of Julien’s Journal,
as well as the subject of a per-
sonal appearance by the
author on Via Times television
show in Chicago, and numer-
ous radio interviews extend-
ing from California, Michigan,
Wisconsin, Montana, Minne-
sota and Arizona, where the
feedback from listeners has
been extremely positive.
Szymczak uses personal
stories and experiences, ex-
amples, exercises, and self-
mastery tools to transform
pain and problems into op-
portunities for personal
growth by answering ques-
tions of who we are and where
we are heading; showing how we get there
with the help of our ever-present GPS! All
aspects of these things guide readers to what
we each consider ‘home,’ that includes im-
proved health, relationships, finances, for-
giveness and love. Its powerfully compelling
messages of hope will help them learn how
to feel true joy, exercise free will, delight in
the senses, and recognize their talents—all
in order to fulfill their dreams and take them
to that ‘place’ that feels safe and secure.

Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Suzanne Roberts to
be Honored The WIN Awards 2010
On January 18, the Women’s Image Network (WIN) will pay tribute to
two-time Academy Award winning actress and activist, Dame Elizabeth
Taylor at The WIN Awards 2010 ceremony, at the Broad Stage in Santa
Monica, California. WIN will also present award-winning actress, pro-
ducer, television host and arts patron, Suzanne Fleisher Roberts with its
Lifetime Achievement award.
“According to Phyllis Stuart WIN founder, “Suzanne Roberts’ commit-
ment to philanthropy, leadership and the arts reflects our mission to
support artists who possess both passion and compassion and who use
their gifts to change the world. Suzanne is remarkable, inspiring and at
nearly 90 years old she’s still unstoppable. And one could not find a bet-
ter actress than Elizabeth Taylor to honor, nor could one locate a better
human being to celebrate. As most people know, Elizabeth Taylor was
among the very first public personalities to speak up and stand up for
those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. I am humbled to advance Dame Elizabeth
Taylor’s vital agenda by presenting her with The WIN Awards 2010 Living
Legend tribute.”
Since 1993, Women’s Image Network (WIN) has produced The WIN Awards
to celebrate men and women who promote gender parity through cre-
ativity and leadership and shape widespread, positive, public opinion
about the value of women and girls. The WIN Awards celebrate those who
create dimensional female portrayals in film, television, advertising and
interactive media. For information, visit: http://thewinawards.com or

t the December 8th Special Board of Commissioners
Meeting, an ordinance to create a Lower Merion Human
Relations Commission (LM-HRC) was unanimously approved.
Municipalities are authorized under the Pennsylvania Human

crimination based on sexual orientation and gender identi-
ty/expression.
Residents interested in serving on this newly established
Commission should forward a resume to Township Secretary
Eileen Trainer at either 75 E. Lancaster Avenue, Ardmore
19003 or e-mail etrainer@lowermerion.org by January 4,
2011. The Board of Commissioners will appoint seven mem-
bers to the Commission for overlapping terms of one to three
years. Members of the LMHRC may not hold office in any
political party.
Specifically, the LM-HRC will ensure that all persons, re-
gardless of race, color, religious creed, ancestry, age, sex,
national origin, handicap or disability, use of guide or sup-
port animals because of the blindness, deafness or physical
handicap of the user or because the user is a handler or
trainer of support or guide animals, or because of a person’s
sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression
enjoy the full benefits of citizenship and are afforded equal
opportunities for employment, housing, commercial prop-
erty, and the use of public accommodations in Lower Mer-
ion Township.

Manager Patricia Ryan at

leachers will be going up along Broad Street to make
this year’s Mummers Parade the most fan-friendly in its
110-year history. The unforgettable, only-in-Philadelphia
New Year’s Day celebration is a family-friendly affair, with
enough glamour, music and humor to entertain first-timers
to never-miss-a-year fans. This year, families are encouraged
to bring their kids to the parade’s six performance zones
along Broad Street for excellent views of the same animated
routines the judges see. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. at
Broad and Washington and proceeds to City Hall. There is
a ticketed competition for the Fancy Brigades at the Pennsyl-
vania Convention Center at noon and 5 p.m.
“The Mummers Parade is world renowned and a beloved
tradition for our City,” said Mayor Michael Nutter. “There
are 10,000 amateur performers—men, women and children
who march and there are thousands more who build the floats,
create the costumes and raise money all year long to make
this parade possible. This is a terrific showcase of Philadel-
phia’s rich history and the teamwork, and creativity of our
people.”
With bleachers, DJs, food and bathroom facilities, these
are some of the best spots to take in the parade. These are
free to the public and located at the following cross streets
along Broad: Shunk, Wolf, Washington, Spruce, and Sansom.
Families can warm up and enjoy extra entertainment at the
High School for Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) at
Broad and Washington and at the Kimmel Center at Broad
and Spruce. Perhaps the best view will be from the Grand
Stand entertainment zone, which will be positioned near City
Hall at 15th and Market Street. Tickets for these bleachers
will be sold for $19 for all ages to assist with the cost of the
performance zones.
Tickets are on sale now for the City Hall Grand Stand per-
formance zone at the Fairmount Park Welcome Center, 16th
and JFK Boulevard, 215-683-0246 or the Independence
Visitor Center on 6th and Market, 215-965-7676.

W
hat have Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Britney
Spears, and Mel Gibson all had in common besides
fame and fortune? A drug or alcohol problem. Unfortunately,
many of our children are following their examples and get-
ting involved with dangerous substances at increasingly
earlier ages. The average age of a child’s first alcoholic drink
is now 8 and a teenager’s first experiment with marijuana
is occurring at age 13.
In a 2008 survey of youth by the Partnership for a Drug-
Free America, 40% of American teens reported that they
believed prescription medications were safer to use than
illicit drugs. The Centers for Disease Control and Preven-
tion reported in 2007 that 45% of high school students, re-
gardless of gender, were drinking alcohol, many to the point
of regular bingeing.
So what is a parent, grandparent, or other caregiver to do?
Drug Free Pennsylvania, one of the Commonwealth’s pre-
mier non-profit organizations in educating adults about
substance abuse, will be holding a free seminar for parents
in partnership with the Montgomery County Intermediate
Unit #23 (MCIU) on Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 7 p.m.
The seminar will be held in Conference Rooms B3/B4, 2nd
Floor, at the Intermediate Unit, which is located at 1605 W.
Main Street, Norristown, PA. Not only will participants
learn about the kinds of substances now making their way
into schools, communities and homes, but those in atten-
dance will be taught strategies to help young people avoid
these substances. So whether parents have preschoolers
or new college students, there will be information for all.
The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency
is providing funding support for this effort.
There is a need to pre-register for this seminar as seating
is limited. Please register through Drug Free Pennsylvania’s
website at http://www.drugfreepa.org/seminar/mciu.asp.
For information, contact Dr. Glenn Zehner, Educational
Programs Director. Contact him at zehner@drugfreepa.org

S
alon Ziza is the hottest new up-
scale hair salon to open on the Main
Line. Poised to become a premier
destination for its top-of-the-line ser-
vices and array of exclusive profes-
sional products, Master Stylist Liz
Stelmach brings her signature con-
cepts of timeless elegance and sophis-
tication to the 1,000-square-foot serene
retreat. Liz Stelmach, formerly of
Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salon and
Spa, has over 25 years of salon ex-
perience. Stelmach specializes in the
unique ability to customize and
restructure hairpieces and wigs.
For months the Salon Ziza team
worked on the salon’s modern yet
simplistic interior décor. Liz and her
team left no detail unattended—
vibrant colors, and oversized red
leather shampoo chairs provides a
welcoming atmosphere for a full
pampering experience. The salon also
has a one-of-a-kind custom color bar,
which was imported from Italy; there
is no other salon in Pennsylvania that
has this feature.
When owner Liz Stelmach was
designing the salon it was her goal
to make a salon experience like no other. Her mission was
to make men and women feel at ease.
Liz also works with a lot of cancer patients who have
lost their hair and want to be fitted for wigs. Therefore,
she decided to build a private room
in the salon for men and women in
order to accommodate clients with
special hair needs. Most of these
clients don’t feel comfortable reveal-
ing their loss of hair in the public so
Liz schedules them in the private
room.
Consultations and services are
provided in private rooms away from
other customers and staff members.
This private styling room provides
men and women privacy to talk about
their their hair loss and hair replace-
ment needs. Men also have trouble
talking about their problems with
baldness or having their hair col-
ored in the public. When schedul-
ing your appointment at Salon Ziza
customers just need to ask for the
private room.
Salon Ziza is located at 6 Greenfield Avenue in Ardmore,
PA. To make an appointment check out www.salonziza.com
or call 610-642-5200.

Center of Philadelphia at Mind-Body Services,
located in Havertown in the Vernon Medical Building
(Suite 102), invites the community to mindfully begin the
New Year, celebrate and connect during this symbolic time
of transformation and reflection through a heart-centered
yoga practice. This workshop will be held on January 1
from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. The cost is $40 in advance, $45 at
the door and pre-registration is requested.
The workshop will be led by Kashi, owner/director of the
Devi Yoga Center in Sebastapol, California. She is a senior
level teacher of TriYoga International, is on the TriYoga
teacher training staff and has studied with Kali Ray, the
founder of TriYoga since 1991. Kashi is very excited to return
to Philadelphia, her hometown, where she was the first to
introduce TriYoga to the area.
TriYoga is a complete hatha yoga method in which the
TriYoga Flows unite breath and focus with flowing and sus-
tained postures in systematized sequences. TriYoga’s unique
spinal wavelike movements promote the health of the cen-
tral nervous system and core muscles of the body. TriYoga
is ideally suited for reducing stress and promoting relax-
ation and calm states of mind.

violence and parents who constantly
pointed the finger of blame, taught
Leonard Szymczak that sometimes the
greatest gifts come out of our deepest
wounds. He believes the gift he re-
ceived as a young boy was a quest to
find ‘home’ – and his journey showed
him that ‘home’ is within each of us –
we just have to learn how to get there!
Hopefully, anyone who feels sadness
about the Holidays will read his book
and allow his guide to help them find
their own way home.
Leonard Szymczak is a licensed
clinical social worker who conducts
successful seminars and workshops,
as well as maintaining a therapy
practice in southern California.

T
he Academy of Notre Dame’s Parents’
Association held its annual Christmas
Luncheon and Fashion Show at Springfield
Country Club on Saturday, December 4, 2010.
Over 500 mothers, daughters and guests gath-
ered on a snowy afternoon to browse twenty
Christmas Boutiques featuring jewelry, fashions,
skin care products, handbags, personalized sta-
tionery and more. Once the tables closed for
lunch, guests made their way into the grand
ballroom, which was transformed into a festive
winter wonderland. A delicious lunch was served
as models took the runway to showcase fash-
ions from Sorella Boutique in Media and Just
Girls and Elizabeth Maar from Newtown Square and Haverford.
Chairing the annual event were Rosemary Davis of Drexel Hill, Susan Schultz of West Chester and Rhonda Mordy of
Villanova. The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur is located at 560 Sproul Road in Villanova, Pa.
J
anuary is fast approaching and that means it’s time to
apply for college financial aid for the upcoming school
year. High school seniors across the country can use down-
time during the holiday break to take the first step toward
financing their education.
Students who plan to attend college during the 2011-2012
school year can apply online through the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) website as early as possible
starting January 1, 2011. To save time, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education recommends students first:
• Gather the documents they need.
• Print a FAFSA on the Web Worksheet.
• Apply for a PIN (personal identification number).
• Check their eligibility for federal student aid.
• Note important deadlines.
Federal financial aid is available for students attending
two- or four-year public or
private colleges, as well as
career or trade schools. The
aid is intended to cover school
expenses such as tuition, room
and board, books, other sup-
plies, and transportation.
Most students receive aid
based upon their financial
need. Individual colleges and
universities award financial
aid for their students on a
first come, first served basis.
Students can also receive financial aid in the form of grants,
loans or work study. Grants include Pell Grants and Federal
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. Loans in-
clude Federal Stafford Loans (made to students) and PLUS
loans (made to parents).
There are also direct loans, Perkins Loans, and the Federal
Family Education Loan. Work-study programs provide jobs,
usually on campus, so students can help pay for educa-
tional expenses.
To find out about federal financial aid programs and your
rights and responsibilities under these programs, read “Fund-
ing Education Beyond High School: The Guide to Federal
Student Aid” from the Department of Education. You also
can request a free paper copy by contacting the U.S. De-
partment of Education at 1-800-4-FED-AID. The guide is
available in English and Spanish. The FAFSA website is
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/index.htm.

Thanks for Reading CITY SUBURBAN NEWS Every Week!
M
ain Line residents, workers and shoppers can do a good deed – and help close the
urban-suburban education gap – by donating children’s books at any of six public
drop-off points from now through January 17, Martin Luther King Day of Service.
The seasonal book drive is being held in support of PHILADELPHIA READS, a nonprofit
agency that works to strengthen children’s literacy and assist underserved schools in
Philadelphia.
PHILADELPHIA READS is seeking new and gently used books, Pre-K through Young Adult
levels, to stock its citywide Children’s Book Bank. Through the book bank, teachers from
public and charter schools, day-care centers and other education sites are provided with
tens of thousands of donated books, free to charge to them, to bolster their classroom
libraries and reading corners.
The public drop-off sites on the Main Line for donated books are:
• National Penn Bank, 367-A West Lancaster Ave., Strafford Shopping Center.
• National Penn Bank, 333 E. Lancaster Ave., Wynnewood.
• Children’s Book World, 17 Haverford Station Rd., Haverford (ongoing).
• Har Zion Temple, 1500 Hagys Ford Rd., Penn Valley.
• Milkboy Coffee, 2 E. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore.
• Milkboy Coffee, 824 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr.
“We are so grateful to our community partners for being collection points for this
important cause,” said PHILADELPHIA READS Executive Director Dr. Adrienne Jacoby.
“Teachers are taking about 3,000 books every week from our Children’s Book Bank, so
there is a constant need for more donations to replenish the shelves.”
“Sadly, many city children and their schools lack the independent-reading books that
reinforce literacy skills—and instill a lifelong love of reading,” she said. “Through these
book drives, the public is making a crucial difference in our children’s futures!”

Suzanne Slenn, selected her to audition for
the Pennsylvania Ballet’s production of The
Nutcracker. The audition included five hours
of waiting, dancing, and waiting some more with no parents allowed. The results were amazing. She landed two roles.
She’s an angel in the sugar plum fairy scene—that particular dance involves complicated patterns across the floor and
tricky timing in terms of counting the music; a true test of Annika’s newfound math skills. Her bigger part is that of the
youngest grandchild party girl—it’s a prestigious role for the younger girls and she’s by far the youngest. The dance is
very advanced and requires a lot of ballet experience, poise, and intense memorization for an eight year old!
When asked what they would want other parents of children like Annika to know, Lisa
and Bill Bergofin simply reply, “Every child should have an opportunity to learn. It’s kid’s
differences that make them special and lead to new thinking. And some of the greatest
minds and accomplishments throughout history belong to those who learned differently.
It’s probably where the term ‘off the charts’ comes from.” Lisa adds that her daughter
loves a particular sign on the wall back at her ballet studio that reads, “Dance as if nobody
is watching.” At AIM, Annika’s self-consciousness and worry have been replaced by con-
fidence, excitement, and discovery so now she can learn and dance as the world watches.
AIM—Academy In Manayunk is the Philadelphia region’s research-based, 1-12 college
preparatory school for children with learning disabilities/differences. It is the only school
of its kind in this region that
has grown in enrollment over
the past two years. To learn

T
he Episcopal Academy’s community service program
encourages members of the school community, includ-
ing students, parents, faculty, and staff to get involved in
their community. Approximately 93% of the student body
participates in Episcopal’s community service program which
is voluntary. The “Days of Service” for the fall were over-
whelmingly successful! Parents and students (11th, 12th,
and 6th grade) made an enormous impact at SHARE, Cradles
to Crayons, Christ Church, Northern Home for Children,
Willistown Conservation Trust, Broad Street Ministry, Cosa-
cosa Art-at-Large, Fairmount Park, Philabundance, Emerald
Street Urban Farm, The Philadelphia Zoo, Neighbors in Action,
West Philadelphia Alliance for Children, Riverbend Environ-
mental Education Center, and MANNA. Students cleaned
up neighborhoods, parks, and nature trails; planted trees,
bushes, and native plants; sorted donations of clothing and
toys; packed food boxes for hundreds of people; helped out
in classrooms across West Philadelphia; and more. They
also served dinners to the hungry, helped students with
homework, taught guitar lessons, and collected thousands
of dollars for UNICEF. It was a very productive fall. Visit
www.episcopalacademy.org for information.

Railroad Ties.” It offered a unique blend of antique railroad
memorabilia and a memorable walk-through history of the
Pennsylvania Railroad illustrating how the suburban towns
sprang up along the railroad’s “Main Line.” Thirty distinguished
East Coast dealers offered for purchase a wide selection of
fine 18th, 19th and 20th century antiques and art – ceramics,
textiles, pewter, porcelain, silver, estate jewelry, glass, furni-
ture, decorative arts, prints and more. Honorary co-chair-
men were Mrs. S. Matthews V. Hamilton, Jr. of Bryn Mawr
and Mrs. J. Maxwell Moran of Paoli. The show chairman was
Nicholas Vandekar. The show was held November 20 & 21, 2010.
The Main Line Antiques Show is a major fundraising event
for Surrey Services for Seniors. Proceeds from the show sup-
port the work of Surrey Services for Seniors in providing home
health care, transportation, meals, special programs and more
to older neighbors in need, regardless of ability to pay.
Small Miracles Award Dinner

phia at Penn’s Landing, 201 South Columbus Boulevard. The

ment Award. Governor Edward G. Rendell received the Small

ment Award in appreciation of her years of service and com-
mitment to individuals with autism and their families. Robert

T
he Nelly Ber-
man School
of Music (NBS)
will hold a mem-
orial concert in
memory of gifted
violin student,
Chanlan Lee, on
January 23, 2009
at 7 p.m. Chanlan
Lee, age 8, pass-
ed away on Dec-
ember 19 due to
a severe case of
viral encephali-
tis. He was the
youngest schol-
arship student
at the Nelly Ber-
man School of
Music and quite
an accomplished
violinist for his
young age.
Chanlan had a
deep passion for
music that was transparent and vibrant. He was involved
in not only solo performances, but chamber groups and
intensive summer camps. His hard work paid off when he
was the youngest soloist chosen to perform on the stage
at the Kimmel Center as a platinum winner of the NBS Golden
Key Competition. In addition to his heart for playing, he was
also dedicated to the scholarship program that supplement-
ed his lesson fees. To show his appreciation, he took initia-
tive to raise funds, over $300 to be exact, by playing in his
parents’ restaurant in the Chinatown section of Philadelphia.
The January 23 concert will be held at Centennial Hall at
The Haverford School, 450 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford,
from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. The event, showcasing students and
professional musicians, will commemorate Chanlan’s love
and passion for music and life. A donation of $15 per adu
and $10 per child is suggested. All proceeds will benefi
the Chanlan Lee Scholarship Program, which will provid
a scholarship to a gifted violin student, from around th
ion with adequate lessons to foster their talent.
