Township officials welcome home Maj. Harvey GaberGaber.jpg
Last Sunday, Council President David Fleisher, Councilwoman Melinda Kane and I joined more than 200 family, friends, neighbors, state and county officials to welcome home Air Force Major Harvey Gaber as he returned from his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. Gaber, a 1985 graduate of Cherry Hill East, joined the National Guard as a student at Stockton State College, and has served in the Air Force for the last 12 years. He has received a number of awards and commendations, including the Air Force Commendation Medal and the Air Force Achievement Medal. I was proud to be in attendance last Sunday, to thank Harvey for his continued service to our nation. Please join me in thanking him once again, and in wishing him well in the future.

Register now for Girls on the Run spring sessionGOTR (2).png
Girls in grades 3 through 5 are invited to register now for the second installment of “Girls on the Run,” a program offered by the Katz JCC in cooperation with the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign that teaches life skills and important lessons through conversation and running. Through a series of sessions with their coaches, girls learn about emotional and physical wellness, build friendships and learn teamwork, all while having fun. The first session, held last fall, was extremely successful – so much so that the program has been expanded for this year. Several spots are still available; however, registration ends this week. For details, click here.
