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. 

FEMA to help residents seek disaster assistance following storm
Representatives from FEMA are currently in Cherry Hill helping residents affected by Hurricane Sandy apply for disaster assistance. FEMA teams will be going door-to-door in affected areas in the next few weeks, in coordination with the Township’s Office of Emergency Management. Representatives carry a FEMA ID badge and wear clearly labeled uniforms. These teams will not need to enter your home, and generally only walk through neighborhoods during daylight hours, from roughly 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., although they may work as late as 7 p.m. 
If you sustained losses or damage from Hurricane Sandy, you may be eligible for disaster aid.
For more information, or to apply, go to www.DisasterAssistance.gov, or call (800) 621-FEMA (3362). TTY users may call (800) 462-7585. For 711 or Video Relay Service, call (800) 621-FEMA (3362). You may also apply through your smartphone at m.fema.gov.
When you apply for assistance, please have available: Social Security Number (including your spouse’s); private insurance information, if available; address and zip code of the damaged property; directions to the damaged home or property; a daytime telephone number; a telephone number where you can be reached; an address where you can get mail;  and a bank account type, account number, and routing number, if you want funds sent directly to your bank.

Town Hall closed Monday for Veterans Day
The Cherry Hill Township Municipal Building will be closed on Monday, Nov. 12, in observance of Veterans Day. However, trash, recycling, and yard-waste collection will continue as scheduled. As we mark the holiday, let us remember and give thanks for the countless men and women who have selflessly served our country as members of the Armed Forces. It is because of their courage and sacrifice that we, as Americans, can continue to enjoy the rights and freedoms we so often take for granted. These men and women have given so much of themselves throughout our nation’s history, and too many have paid the ultimate price. So, this weekend, please join me in saying “thank you” to the men and women of the United States military. You are our nation’s truest patriots and heroes. Thank you for all that you have done, and all that you continue to do for our country. Your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Township offers guidelines for storm-debris clean-up
Remember that yard-waste cleaned up following Hurricane Sandy can be collected as part of your regular curbside trash pickup each week. Branches and other debris must be cut into pieces less than four feet in length and under 50 pounds. The bundling requirement that is typically enforced has been relaxed for post-storm cleanup. If your yard waste has been placed curbside but does not fit these requirements, please call the  Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422 to make arrangements for pickup. You may also discard of yard waste at the Ecology Center on Kresson Road, between Hartwood and Springdale. Contact DPW before dropping yard-waste at the Ecology Center.

Township to host food drive for Hurricane victims
Cherry Hill Township is organizing a food-donation drive starting next week, to benefit New Jerseyans affected by Hurricane Sandy, as well local families in need during the holiday season. Beginning Tuesday, non-perishable food items will be collected in the lobby of the Municipal Building, at 820 Mercer St., as well as several other locations around town. All food will be delivered to the Food Bank of South Jersey, which has earmarked items specifically for storm-relief. A portion of the collected food items will also benefit local families in need as part of our annual holiday food drive. More information about our collection drive, including a full list of collection sites and requested items, will be posted on our website at www.CherryHill-NJ.com. For more information, call my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.

Cherry Hill Arts Board welcomes ‘Cabaret with Colleen Daly’ Sunday at Croft Farm
The Cherry Hill Arts Board once again welcomes singer Colleen Daly, an Academy of Vocal Arts-trained Soprano, for a special performance at 3 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Croft Farm Arts Center. Daly has been hailed by The Washington Post as a “dramatically powerful” singer emerging in the operatic arena. The Croft Farm Arts Center is a unique and intimate 200-seat venue in the heart of Cherry Hill. Tickets are $15 ($12 with a Gold Card), and are available online at www.CherryHill-NJ.com. For more great events from the Cherry Hill Arts Board, visit the blog.

Celebrate the troops at a special Thanksgiving Day event in Cherry Hill
This Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, the Jewish War Veterans Post 126 will host the 9th annual Jeremy Kane Feed the Troops Thanksgiving Celebration at the Palace of Asia Ballroom (adjacent to the America’s Best Inn) on Route 70 West. At 11 a.m., 300 troops currently training at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst will arrive to a well-deserved, patriotic, surprise greeting from local veterans, residents, school children and special guests gathered outside the ballroom. The troops’ training schedule prohibits them from traveling home to visit family during the holidays. I attended last year’s celebration, and it was incredible. These men and women do so much for our country every day of the year; the least we can do is give them warmth and a few comforts of home as we enter the holiday season. I hope you’ll all join us. For more information, click here.

The sale is open during the Library’s regular business hours. On Saturday, visitors can pay $5 for a bag of books. There’s nothing better than curling up in a warm blanket with a good book during the colder fall and winter days, so stock up now!
