Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events, and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign-up to receive email updates, follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook. 

Cherry Hill Celebrates the 4th of July
Thousands flocked to Cherry Hill High School West for the Township's annual 4th of July Celebration and Fireworks. Members of Cherry Hill East High School's female a cappella group, "The Key of She" began the event singing the National Anthem and they were followed by Al's Choral performing a variety of hits from yesterday and today. We would like to thank the Cherry Hill Board of Education, Fire, Police, Public Works and Recreation departments for their help with this special event. We would also like to thank Cherry Hill Mall and our additional event sponsors including TD Bank, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, Republic Services, Inc. and Hampshire Self Storage.You can view more photos from the evening by clicking here.

Intergenerational Gardening at Spring Hills Senior Living
Fourteen and fifteen year old “counselors in training” from the Katz JCC camp in Medford learned first-hand why New Jersey is called “The Garden State” by helping senior residents establish a new organic community garden right along Route 70 at the Spring Hills Senior Community. This intergenerational collaboration will connect South Jersey teens with several residents who grew up on nearby family farms that planted, picked and processed fresh veggies that were sold to the nearby Campbell’s Soup Company. You can view more photos from the gardening by clicking here.

Music Under the Stars Series Begins
Bring a chair, blanket and even a picnic dinner, just don’t forget your appetite for great music! Our Music Under the Stars series is about to begin at the historic Barclay Farmstead. Our series opens  on July 17 beginning at 6:30 pm at the Barclay Farmstead (209 Barclay Lane). New this summer are opening acts. Guests can hear an ‘up-and-coming’ musical act each night before the featured band starting with No Commitment on July 17. Music Under the Stars is supported by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Beating the Heat
During periods of extreme heat, it is essential to err on the side of caution and common sense. Whenever temperatures rise above 95 degrees, the following is recommended:

  1. Turn on the air conditioning to cool the air. Many people often try to save money by using fans instead of air conditioning. But, fans only move the air around – they do not cool it. When temperatures rise above 95 degrees, fans can actually heat a room by circulating the hot air. 
  2. Drink plenty of cool, non-alcoholic beverages, especially those without sugar or caffeine, like ice water! 
  3. Spend as little time as possible in the sun.

Weekly Energy Tip: Programming Power
A programmable thermostat is ideal if you are away from home during set periods of time throughout the week. Setting your summer thermostat to 79° while you are gone will reduce your electricity bill by 8%. For every degree you raise the temperature, you decrease your bill by 8%. Through proper use of pre-programmed settings, a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in energy costs. For more energy tips or to sign the It's In Our Power Pledge to increase your energy efficiency, visit www.ourpowercherryhill.org or contact Energy Outreach Coordinator Nancy Axelrod at naxelrod@chtownship.com.
