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. 

Free leaf bags still available at Town Hall, DPW
Leaf bags are now available in the Mayor’s Office at 820 Mercer St., or the Department of Public Works on Perina Boulevard. The bags are provided as a courtesy to residents for free, thanks to a partnership with Subaru of America. The 30-gallon, biodegradable bags are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They are ideal for use during the upcoming leaf-collection season, which starts Oct. 22. For more information, please call my office at (856) 488-7878, or DPW AT (856) 424-4422.


Thank you for your support of our Wellness programs!
I’d like to take a moment to say thank you to those of you who have come mwclogo2.jpgout to support our Mayor’s Wellness events to date. This week was the first installment of our “Walk with the Mayor” program at the Cherry Hill Mall. More than a dozen residents joined me and members of my staff as we took the two-mile walk around the mall’s interior, then enjoyed free, healthy refreshments. I hope you’ll join us for our other walks, scheduled for 8 a.m. on the third Wednesday of every month through April. Additionally, our free cooking classes in partnership with Wegmans and ShopRite have all been filled. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to see such strong support of these valuable programs. For an updated list of programs and events, more information on the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, or to take our pledge, click here.

Municipal offices to close Wednesday for Yom Kippur
Township offices will be closed on Wednesday, Sept. 26, in observance of Yom Kippur. Residents should note that trash, recycling and yard waste will be collected as regularly scheduled. Town Hall will reopen for normal business hours on Thursday.

Help celebrate National Public Lands Day Sept. 29 at Croft Farm
Members of the public are invited to help Cherry Hill Township and the Cherry Hill NPLD for briefing.jpgEnvironmental Board as we mark National Public Lands Day, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 29, at Croft Farm. The morning will include several activities aimed at improving open space surrounding the historic site. Interested groups and individuals are welcome and encouraged to attend; however, residents are welcome to organize their own events throughout the community, as well. If you or your group would like to get involved, contact Environmental Board Liaison Earle Seneres at eseneres@chtownship.com or (856) 424-3203. For more information on our program, click here. For more on National Public Lands Day, visit http://www.publiclandsday.org/

CHPD to auction items online beginning Monday

At 9 a.m. Monday, Sept. 24, the Cherry Hill Police Department will begin a one-week auction of property it has received through asset forfeiture and unclaimed found property, on the website www.govdeals.com. In the last year, the use of online auctions has enabled the CHPD to reach a broader audience and maximize the dollar amounts received on the items being auctioned. The upcoming auction will include listings for five vehicles, two fur coats, and a set of golf clubs. Contact information and details on each item are included in individual listings. For more information, visit www.govdeals.com.

Protect yourself from mosquito bites, potential illness
The Camden County Mosquito Commission sprayed several areas in Cherry Hill this week in response to concerns about the pests and the potential for West Nile Virus. The Commission continues responding to residents’ requests, and has been cycling through Camden County towns throughout the summer. They can be reached directly at (856) 566-2945 or skeeters@camdencounty.com. In addition to these efforts, there are several steps you can take to safeguard yourselves and your families, including eliminating standing water from your property, using mosquito repellent, limiting your outdoor exposure at dawn and dusk, and using screens in your doors and windows. More information is available through Camden County by clicking here, and through the State of New Jersey by clicking here.

Celebrating National Fall Prevention Day, MSAA’s new rooftop solar array
The past week saw several celebrations around town. On Tuesday, I visited the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America at its national headquarters on Haddonfield Road to celebrate the launch of its 109kWh rooftop solar array. The solar panels will sMSAA.jpgignificantly reduce the nonprofits utility costs, resulting in a savings of more than $140,000 in the next several years – money that will instead be directly to the tens of thousands of clients the MSAA serves nationally every year. This is truly wonderful news! Congratulations to MSAA CEO Doug Franklin, Independent Solar CEO Sean Barr, and the entire MSAA family on their accomplishment.
On Wednesday, I was pleased to help kick off Fall Prevention Day at Fox Rehabilitation Headquarters on Carnegie Plaza. The well-attended event gave our senior residents access to a wealth of information and resources that can aid in the prevention of devastating falls that can change lives forever in just the blink of an eye. Falls are one of the leading causes of injury for senior citizens, and in a town like Cherry Hill, where thousands of seniors live, awareness is the key to staying healthy and strong.

Mayor's Wellness: Control your portions!mwclogo2.jpg
Sometimes it’s difficult to know the right portion size. Use these everyday items to help you approximate a serving:
- Deck of cards = 3 ounce serving of meat
- Checkbook = 3 ounce serving of fish
- 4 dice = 1 ounce of cheese
- Baseball = 1 serving of fruits or vegetables
- Golf ball = 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
- ½ of a tennis ball = ½ cup of rice or pasta
- Medium fist = 1 cup of cereal
