Get ‘Fit for Fashion’ with Cherry Hill Mall and the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign
This Saturday, visitors to the Cherry Hill Mall have the chance to get “Fit for Fashion.” At 9:30 a.m., visitors can participate in the “Fit for Fashion” Mall Walk – a nearly 2-mile trek that will take visitors around the mall’s interior – followed by a 2 p.m. fashion show. Participants will also be able to learn about the new Mayor’s Wellness Campaign and take the pledge to get healthy in conjunction with the Township. This is just the first of many events coming up this fall in partnership with the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign.

Congratulations to Congressional Gold Medal recipient Arthur CarmichIMG_3891.JPGael
On Monday, I was proud to represent Cherry Hill in honoring Arthur Carmichael, a Cherry Hill resident who has been awarded a Congressional Gold Medal as part of the Montford Point Marines, a trailblazing group of African-American Marine Corps recruits who trained in a segregated facility from 1942-49. The Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor and was awarded this year to the Montford Point Marines as a whole. Mr. Carmichael and his fellow Montford Point Marines helped break through the color barrier in our Armed Forces while bravely answering the call to serve our nation. On behalf of everyone in Cherry Hill, I would like to publicly thank him for his service. To read local news coverage of Monday’s ceremony, click here or here.

Township, Camden County honor Cherry Hill Atlantic Little LeagueCHALL FOR BRIEFING.jpg

The 2012 season was quite a year for Cherry Hill Atlantic Little League. Almost every CHALL team secured a divisional or sectional title – by far, the most successful season in its rich 42-year history. On Tuesday night, I joined Camden County Freeholder Scot McCray to honor the players, coaches and parents who worked so hard to make this season a success. Additionally, Freeholder McCray made a special announcement, presenting the league with a $25,000 grant to enhance the lighting fixtures at the league’s home field.

Camden County to host veterans outreach event in Cherry Hill

The Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs is going on the road to bring services directly to Cherry Hill residents in a special outreach day this Wednesday, Aug. 29, at American Legion Post 372. Veterans and their families are invited to the Legion Post (on Martin Avenue behind Cherry Hill West and adjacent to Kennedy Hospital) from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. to access a one-stop shop of resources. Case workers from the U.S. Veterans Administration will be on hand, as will representatives from state and federal legislative offices. For more information, click here or call (856) 374-5801.

Mayor’s Wellness Campaign supports Girls on the Run program

In September, the Katz Jewish Community Center will launch a new program aimed at helping to boost the confidence and self-image of young girls in our area. The program, called “Girls on the Run,” will focus on building confidence, friendship, life skills and an appreciation for health and wellness among girls ages 8 to 11. The program culminates in a 5K run in mid-November, but the lessons learned will surely last a lifetime. I am tremendously proud to partner with the JCC on this effort as part of the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, and I encourage anyone with young daughters or other family members to find more information on the initiative by clicking here. Look for more information in the weeks to come.

Mayor's Wellness: Environmental health as important as physical fitness
Recycling is the practice of “environmental wellness,” and being more environmentally aware connects in many ways directly to our own physical well-being. Recycling paper, for example, goes a long way toward saving trees. Those same trees filter out dust, carbon monoxide and other pollutants, giving us cleaner air to breathe. Unfortunately, many Americans throw away paper instead of recycling. Think about how much paper you use at home or at work; fewer trees will be used to produce the paper that was thrown away, rather than recycled, if you do your part. To learn more more about the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign or take our pledge, click here.    

Energy tip: Keep the good air in by properly sealing your home
In a typical house, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections, placing an unnecessary strain on heating and cooling equipment. This in turn decreases their efficiency and raises your energy bills. Make sure the connections at vents and registers are well-sealed with duct sealant (also called duct mastic) where they meet the floors, walls and ceiling. These are common locations to find leaks and disconnected ductwork. Keep all vents clear of furniture and rugs to improve air flow and comfort. If your home has radiators, place heat-resistant reflectors between radiators and walls; in the winter, this will help heat the room instead of the wall. Additionally, insulating ducts that run through spaces that get hot in summer or cold in winter (like attics, garages, or crawlspaces) can save significant energy.  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.
