Thousands turn out for the fourth annual Art Blooms Earth FestivalEF briefing 2.jpg
Last Saturday, Cherry Hill Township and Sustainable welcomed thousands of visitors to Croft Farm for our fourth annual Earth Festival, a daylong celebration of sustainability, art and culture that kicked off this year's Art Blooms festivities. The weather was beautiful, which set the stage for a host of special events and activities, including musical performances Earth Fest 1.jpgfrom a variety of school groups and other acts; "green" crafters and vendors; delicious local food; and even a visit from the Phillie Phanatic, who was there with the Phillies' "Red Goes Green" campaign, which was new to Earth Festival for 2013. All in all, it was a wonderful day! I would like to publicly thank the members of Sustainable Cherry Hill for their time and vision in making this year's event our best yet! I'm already looking forward to next year's festival!

Important information about second-quarter property tax bills
Many homeowners have inquired about the status of their Homestead Benefit Credit for this year. In March, the State of New Jersey notified local municipalities that qualified homeowners will receive this year's benefit as a credit on their third-quarter tax bills, due Aug. 1. In years past, the Homestead Benefit was credited to second-quarter bills. Residents who qualify for the benefit will receive an updated notice from the Tax Collector's Office once the state provides the Township with this year's credit amounts. Second-quarter taxes were due on May 1; the grace period for payments runs through May 10. For more information on the Homestead Benefit, call the Division of Taxation at (877) 658-2972.

Tour historic Barclay Farmstead from noon to 4 p.m. this SundayBarclay for briefing.jpg
It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend in Cherry Hill, so come out and get your hands on history with free tours of historic Barclay Farmstead this Sunday! From noon to 4 p.m., enjoy guided tours of the 19th century Quaker farmhouse. As an added bonus, this month's visitors will learn all about archaeology! Using artifacts found at the site, a trained archaeologist will discuss what we can learn about inhabitants of the Farmstead.  From 1 to 3 p.m., children will have an opportunity to “dig” for their own artifacts. Visitors will also enjoy walking around the 32-acres of park land that includes farm outbuildings, herb garden, playground and nature trails. Can't make it this weekend? The farmhouse is open for public tours the first Sunday of every month through November. For more information, call (856) 795-6225, or e-mail info@barclayfarmstead.org.

Friendship Grove is blooming at the Cherry Hill Public LibraryFriendship Grove for 4-26 briefing.jpeg
When the Cherry Hill Library dedicated its Friendship Grove on a brisk day back in December, Library staff and visitors could only dream of spring! But now that spring has finally arrived, the cherry trees are in bloom and the warm weather invites people to walk the Grove’s path, or sit on a bench to read or relax. 
The Friends of the Library made the initial contribution to establish Friendship Grove; but it's not too late to contribute to this wonderful cause. A great way to donate is by purchasing a brick, which will have a permanent home in the Grove. Bricks are $75 each and make great gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduations or to remember someone special. Click here to order your brick online, or call Katie Hardesty at (856) 903-1207 to receive an order form. Trees and benches are also available for naming. The next time you visit the Library, be sure to take a walk through Friendship Grove. It’s a beautiful place to “Relax, Reflect and Restore.”
