Woodcrest auction ends, but our commitment to preserving the property continues
As you may know by now, the Woodcrest Country Club was bought at auction on May 20 by the First Montgomery Group, a real estate developer based in Marlton. Together with Camden County, we put our best effort toward acquiring the property ourselves, but unfortunately, we simply could not match the developer's $10.1 million bid -- which was nearly $4 million above the property's appraised value. Although the developer has stated that it plans to reopen the country club as a semi-private golf course, I want to make clear to the residents of Cherry Hill that Council and I intend to continue our efforts to ensure this property is forever protected and preserved. A letter re-stating our position was sent Thursday to residents in Woodcrest and adjacent neighborhoods this week. Read the full letter by clicking here. Please share your thoughts by calling my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me directly at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.

Please join Township Council and I for Cherry Hill's annual Memorial Day ceremony, 11 a.m. Monday, May 27, at the Municipal Complex. In addition to our traditional tribute, this year’s event will include the rededication of the Township’s War Memorial, to include the names of three Cherry Hill natives killed in combat in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan: Lt. Col. John Spahr, Capt. Gregory Dalessio, and Lance Cpl. Jeremy Kane. The event will feature remarks by Fort Dix commander Col. Jeffrey Doll, as well as a musical tribute to our Armed Forces by the Cherry Hill Pine Barons Chorus. Afterwards, please join us for a free barbecue lunch provided by ShopRite Supermarkets of Cherry Hill and provided by the John and Deborah Giacoboni Veterans Car Show Team. We are proud to partner with American Legion Post 372 and Jewish War Veterans Furer-Barag-Wolf Post 126 to present this day of remembrance. For more information, please contact the Cherry Hill Recreation Department at (856) 488-7868.

The Cherry Hill Police Department reminds drivers and passengers to buckle their seatbelts whenever they’re in the car this summer, and all year long. Now through June 2, local police will take part in the 2013  “Click it or Ticket” enforcement campaign, aimed at promoting seatbelt use. Seatbelts save thousands of lives every year across America – and enforcement efforts like this one help promote their use among both drivers and their passengers. Please abide by the law and buckle up next time you’re behind the wheel, and remind your loved ones to do the same. For more information on the “Click it or Ticket” campaign, click here.

Council members Angulo, Bannar honor the Cherry Hill Library's volunteersLibrary breakfast for briefing.jpg
This past Thursday, Council members Susan Shin Angulo and Jim Bannar were proud to help honor the Friends of the Cherry Hill Library and countless other men and women who support the Cherry Hill Public Library, at the library's annual volunteer appreciation breakfast. Dozens of volunteers donate their own time and talents to help enhance the services, programs and other special events offered at the Library throughout the year - and helping to truly make it the heart of our Township. Their time, talents and assistance are truly invaluable, and Council and I were proud to honor our volunteers again this year.
