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 e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or Like us on Facebook. 

Several road improvements slated for next week
Four roads are scheduled for paving work on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 6 and 7, as part of the 2011 Road Maintenance Program. Weather-permitting, paving is set for Monday on Webster Avenue, Bancroft Road and Russell Terrace. Work on Hedy Avenue is planned for Tuesday. The annual road maintenance schedule represents a more than $2 million investment in a critical piece of our municipal infrastructure. For questions about specific projects, please contact the Engineering Department at (856) 424-3203. 

Wrapping up another successful Music Under the Stars series
Thank you to everyone involved in this year's Music Under the Stars program. The series wrapped up this week with performances by opening act Top Cats - a jazz band whose members are Cherry Hill East students - and the South Jersey Wind Symphony, whose repertoire of Broadway tunes was a big hit. In all, several hundred people attended this year's three-week series. I would like to once again thank Short Hills Deli, which supplied free food each week as part of its partnership with the Mayor's Wellness Campaign; B101.1, which entertained the crowd before the show; and the Friends of Barclay Farmstead, who gave free tours of the Farmhouse. Music Under the Stars has been supported by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, TD Bank, Sam Ash Music and the Grand Lux Cafe.

Join Sustainable Cherry Hill for 'Wall-E' Aug. 9 at Croft Farm
The Township and Sustainable Cherry Hill will present a free screening of Pixar's animated film "Wall-E" at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Croft Farm Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public. "Wall-E" tells the story of a garbage-collecting robot who's left to clean up an Earth that has become so covered with trash it's been abandoned by mankind. For more information or to register online, visit www.SustainableCherryHill.org.

Congratulations to Erlton Swim Club, 2012 Cherry Bowl champions
Congratulations to the Erlton Swim Club Gators, who secured their first-ever Cherry Bowl Championship during last week's annual competition. By all accounts, this year's event, held at the Fox Hollow Swim Club, was a tremendous success once again.
On that same note, I'd like to wish all of our swim clubs the best of luck in this weekend's Tri-County Swimming Championships, which will take place tomorrow and Sunday on my own home turf - the Haddontowne Swim Club. The Tri-County Championship attracts thousands of swimmers from across South Jersey every year, and Cherry Hill's swimmers always emerge as the top of the field. I look forward to addressing the crowd in person tomorrow morning, but on behalf of everyone in Town Hall: have a great weekend!

Help keep county roadways clean and green

Mayor's Wellness: Routines help prioritize exercise
Exercising at the same time every day helps establish a habit. Many people prefer morning exercise because they can do it before other obligations might fill their schedule. Others prefer to exercise in the evening or afternoon, when they feel more awake. Find a time that works for you and stick with it. Enter your exercise into your daily calendar to remind yourself to stay active. To learn more more about the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign or take our pledge, click here.    

Energy Tip: Are you a DIYer?
Sealing and insulating the "envelope" or "shell" of your home — its outer walls, ceiling, windows, doors and floors — is often the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency and comfort. ENERGY STAR estimates that a knowledgeable homeowner or skilled contractor can save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs (or up to 10 percent on their total annual energy bill) by sealing and insulating. It will also make your home more comfortable and help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently.  If you like home improvement projects, you can do it yourself with help from ENERGY STAR’s DIY Guide to Sealing and Insulating with ENERGY STAR.
For more energy tips or to sign the It's In Our Power Pledge to increase your energy efficiency, visit http://www.ourpowercherryhill.org/ or contact my office at (856) 488-7878.
