Art Blooms Week concludes tomorrow evening with a special coffee house event, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Croft Farm Arts Center. Come out and enjoy gourmet coffee, teas and specialty desserts while you listen to poetry readings and live music! Admission is $5 per person. Croft Farm is located at 100 Borton's Mill Road.

Thank you to the various sponsors, staff and volunteers who made all our events possible. I'm already looking forward to 2014!

Walk for preeclampsia awareness tomorrow at Challenge Grovepromise walk 2.jpg
Join me and hundreds of men, women and children at Challenge Grove Park tomorrow morning as we kick off the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, a three-mile walk to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of preeclampsia, a common and extremely serious complication of pregnancy. According to the Preeclampsia Foundation, which has sponsored the walk nationwide for the last eight years, as many as 320,000 cases of preeclampsia are diagnosed in America every year - and thousands of those cases carry severe and even life-threatening consequences for both the woman and her baby. Prenatal education and increased awareness of the symptoms of preeclampsia (which include high blood pressure, sudden swelling of face and hands, abdominal pain, blurred vision, headaches and labored breathing) and HELLP syndrom are needed to help reduce maternal and infant illness and even death. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.; opening ceremonies start at 9:45. For more information, click here.

Council members celebrate launch of Melitta single-serve coffee Melitta for briefing.jpg
On Wednesday afternoon, Councilwomen Susan Shin-Angulo and Melinda Kane visited Melitta Coffee's Berlin Road roasting plant to celebrate the launch of the brand's new single-serve coffee line. Using customized UpShot™ Solution equipment, Melitta USA is now equipped to produce its own single-cup coffee pods, as well as provide manufacturing options to third party brands looking to enter the single-serve market. This was a tremendous step forward in Melitta's evolution as a premier coffee manufacturer worldwide, and we were proud to help celebrate. The announcement comes on the heels of a $10 million upgrade to the Berlin Road facility -- which houses all of the company's North American roasting operations -- in 2011. Melitta will celebrate its 50th year in Cherry Hill next month.

View Cherry Hill's history from 'Below the Surface' May 14
Next week, Cherry Hill will welcome the Archaeological Society of New Jersey to town with two special events that are free and open to the public.
At 7 p.m. May 14, Dr. Ilene Grossman-Bailey, a Cherry Hill native and president of the Archaeological Society, will take visitors to the Cherry Hill Library on a trip back into the past from an archaeological perspective. What lies beneath can give us a greater understanding of our heritage - from the Native Americans who inhabited this area for thousands of years, to the farmers and others who lived here before our suburban development. Then, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 18, the Archaeological Society will host its May meeting inside the Kay Evans Farmhouse at historic Croft Farm. The day will feature several sessions, including a prehistoric look at early Camden County, and a special presentation on the archaeology of Croft. History buffs and novices alike are certain to find this special event fascinating, and we're grateful to the Archaeological Society for choosing Cherry Hill for its May meeting. For more information on either event, click here, or contact the Cherry Hill Historical Commission at (856) 488-7886, or e-mail CHHC@chtownship.com.

Register now for the Jeremy Kane Benefit Run on June 9
Registration is now open for the fourth annual Jeremy Kane Benefit Run, sponsored by Rutgers-Camden, in cooperation with Cherry Hill Township. This year's run is set to begin at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, June 9, at Cherry Hill High School East, 1750 Kresson Road. Registration begins at 7 a.m.; a brief ceremony will take place immediately before the run.
This year's event includes a 5K run, as well as a 1-mile walk. The annual event funds a scholarship at Rutgers-Camden in honor of Marine Lance Cpl.

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.”
