National Trails Day Volunteer Cleanup
Over thirty volunteers participated in the National Trails Day volunteer cleanup on Saturday, June 9th. The goal of National Trails Day, the only nationwide celebration of trails, is to introduce people to the many joys and benefits of trails. Trails give you the opportunity to get your heart pumping, lungs expanding, and muscles working at various levels of difficulty, thereby improving your physical and mental well-being.

Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Tips For Choosing A Snack
When choosing a snack, pick foods from two different food groups, such as fruits and protein. Choosing to have fruits and vegetables as a snack will help you eat more fiber, consume less calories and provide you with nutrient dense foods. The good rule of thumb is to keep your snacks under 200 calories. Examples of healthy snacks include Pretzels, Low-Fat Popcorn, Peanut Butter and Celery, Grapes and Whole Grain Crackers, Low-Fat Yogurt and Apple Slices, Piece of Fruit (i.e. Apple, Pear, Banana or Grapes), English Muffin with Jelly, Apple Slices with Peanut Butter, Mini Sandwich on Whole Grain Roll with One (1) Slice of Deli Turkey Meat and One (1) Slice of Low-Fat Cheese, One (1) Ounce of Nuts (i.e. Almonds, Pistachios or Walnuts), Vegetable Sticks (i.e. Carrots, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peppers, Sugar Snap Peas, etc.) with Two (2) tablespoons Low-Fat Ranch Dipping Sauce, One (1) 6-inch Tortilla with 1/4 cup Black Beans and Two (2) tablespoons of Salsa or One (1) cups of Cereal with 1/2 cup of Low-Fat Milk. You can learn more about the Mayor's Wellness Campaign and take the pledge to join by clicking here.

Weekly Energy Tip: No Peeking

Resist the urge to open the oven door while baking. Every time you peek, the temperature drops 25° F and requires additional energy to bring the temperature back up. This might be welcome in the Winter when you're baking in your sweater, but during the Summer all of that energy leaks into your home and forces your air conditioner to work harder. Those spikes in AC workload can cost you $$$ each month. For more information or to take the It's In Our Power Pledge to increase your energy efficiency, please visit: http://www.ourpowercherryhill.org/ or contact Nancy Axelrod at naxelrod@chtownship.com.
