Learn about Cherry Hill's history from 'Below the Surface' tomorrow
History buffs will enjoy attending free presentations by the Archaeological Society of New Jersey, from 11 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. tomorrow in the Croft Farm Arts Center. The day will feature several sessions, including a prehistoric look at early Camden County, and a special presentation on the archaeology of our historic Croft Farm. 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 this special event.
More than 100 people turned out for a lecture by the Society's president, Cherry Hill native Dr. Ilene Grossman-Bailey this past Tuesday night. 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. For more information, including a full list of tomorrow's sessions, click here.

Cherry Hill celebrates Temple Emanuel as 'No Place for Hate'No Place for Hate.jpg
Earlier this month, Council President Dave Fleisher and Councilwoman Susan Shin Angulo helped the Temple Emanuel community celebrate its designation as the first congregation in the tri-county area to be named "No Place for Hate" by the Anti-Defamation League. This is something Rabbi David and his congregation have worked on for more than a year, and we are proud of the example Temple Emanuel has set. There is absolutely no place for bullying and bigotry here in Cherry Hill; all people, no matter who they are, how they look, or what they believe, deserve the same love, kindness and respect that we all want to be shown.

Mayor, Council kick off Promise Walk for Preeclampsia
More than 100 men, women and children turned out at Challenge Grove Park last Saturday to raise awareness about preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome, severe and often life-threatening complications of pregnancy that are frighteningly common. Council President Dave Fleisher and Councilwoman Susan Shin Angulo joined me to deliver a special proclamation at the beginning of the walk. The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, which has taken place nationally for the last eight years, aims to educate the public about the symptoms of these conditions, and raise money for research, to help save the lives of future generations of women and their babies. Prenatal education and awareness of the symptoms (which include high blood pressure, sudden swelling of face and hands, abdominal pain, blurred vision, headaches and labored breathing) are needed to help reduce maternal and infant illness and even death. Thank you to all those who organized and participated in this year's Walk, which raised nearly $30,000 for the Preeclampsia Foundation.
