Cherry Hill Police talk about fireworks safety

The month of June, through July 4th, is Fireworks Safety Month.
These tips may help ensure your safety:
- The best way to enjoy fireworks is to visit public fireworks displays put on by professionals.
- Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
- Always have a bucket of water and/or a fire extinguisher nearby. Know how to operate the fire extinguisher properly.
- Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks.
- Stand several feet away from lit fireworks.
- If a device does not go off, do not stand over it to investigate it. Put it out with water and dispose of it.
- Always read the directions and warning labels on fireworks. If it is not marked with the contents, directions and a warning label, do not light it.
- Supervise children around fireworks at all times

Rosa International History Day

Councilman Bauerle and Councilwoman Roskoph with the Rosa International Middle School National History Team

Council Recognizes Rosa National History Day Students for award-winning documentary 

The members of Council welcomed Rosa International Middle School teacher Christy Marrella and members of the school's National History Day team to Monday's Council meeting, in recognition of their impressive showing at this year's National History Day competition. The team produced a documentary that included a culmination of images, videos, and music that brought to life the strife of oppressed wartime “comfort women”.

Please join me in congratulating Ava Klinger, Youjin Park, Connor Reilly, Esther Tian, Darren Zhou and Ms. Marella, the driving force behind Rosa's National History Day program, for an incredible and very meaningful project. 

Councilman Attends Cherry Hill National Athletic League Closing Ceremony

Last Saturday, Councilman Bauerle attended the Cherry Hill National Athletic League’s closing ceremony to recognize Dr. Stephen Saft for his commitment to the league and to applaud the league for a great year. 

Dr. Stephen Saft, President of the Cherry Hill National Athletic League, was honored for his twenty-five years of unwavering devotion and service. Steve brought recognition to Cherry Hill by hosting the 1999 State Finals. He organized committees and raised nearly $40,000 to make the event a huge success. Steve is stepping down as President, but his impact on Cherry Hill Athletic  League will remain for decades to come. Thank you, Steve!
