Earth Festival returns to Croft Farm next Saturday, April 27Art-Blooms-Earth-Day-Color-TEXT12-300x158.jpg
It's almost time for the 2013 Art Blooms Earth Festival, presented by Cherry Hill Township and Sustainable Cherry Hill. This free, daylong event celebrates our commitment to educating and engaging the public on sustainability, health and wellness, and much more. Events include a family-fun bike ride (registration begins at 8 a.m.), free e-waste recycling, local entertainment, green vendors and crafters, delicious food, nature walks, and a very special appearance by the Phillie Phanatic! The festival itself runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, on the grounds of Croft Farm, 100 Borton's Mill Road, and is the kick-off to Art Blooms 2013. For more information, visit Sustainable Cherry Hill's website by clicking here.

Celebrate the Cherry Blossoms this Sunday at Cherry Hill WestCherry Blossoms.jpg
This Sunday at 1 p.m., members of Council and I will join local resident Joe Zanghi to celebrate the completion of a 40-year project to plant beautiful cherry trees along a two-mile stretch of Chapel Avenue. The project, conceived by Mr. Zanghi in 1973 to unite residents and promote Cherry Hill, was completed just last weekend, with the help of several generous donors and members of the Cherry Hill Fire Department. The cherry blossom project was featured on Action News this week, and we will hold a brief dedication ceremony at 1 p.m. Sunday in the front parking lot at Cherry Hill High School West. The timing of the ceremony couldn't be better; the trees' beautiful pink blooms just began to pop today, and I'm hopeful they'll be even more vibrant come Sunday. We hope to see you there!

Mayor, Council help kick-off the 2013 Little League seasonCHYAA 8.jpg

Two additional Opening Day celebrations are slated for this weekend:
Cherry Hi
ll Atlantic: 11:30 a.m. Saturday at CHALL's fields at Evesham and Cropwell Roads.
