Cherry Hill honors our fallen heroes at special Memorial Day ceremonyMemorial Day 1.jpg
This past Monday, hundreds of community members, elected officials and veterans turned out to remember the men and women who have died in service to the United States at a very special Memorial Day ceremony at Town Hall. In addition to several patriotic musical selections and a moving speech by Fort Dix Commander Col. Jeffrey Doll, Council and I were honored to pay tribute to three Cherry Hill natives who, tragically, were killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Township re-dedicated the Township’s War Memorial, which sits outside of the Municipal Complex facing Mercer St., to include the names of Lt. Col. John C. Spahr, 42, who was killed in Iraq in 2005; Capt. Gregory T. Dalessio, who died in Iraq in 2008, at age 30; and Lance CMemorial Day 2.jpgpl. Jeremy Kane, son of Councilwoman Melinda Kane, who died in Afghanistan in 2010, when he was just 22 years old. These men made the ultimate sacrifice to safeguard our life, liberty and security – and we will never forget them. Thank you to all who supported this year’s event, including Jewish War Veterans Post 126, American Legion Post 372, the John and Deborah Giacoboni Veterans Car Show Team and ShopRite. And thank you, most of all, to the men and women of the United States military, particularly those who have given their lives in service throughout history, and the families who share in their sacrifices. We will never forget you.

Howard Road resurfacing, utility work on Bortons Mill scheduled for next week
New Jersey American Water will be completing underground work along Borton's Mill Road near Pearlcroft during the day on Monday, June 3, and Tuesday, June 4. The work will have some effect on traffic flow, and drivers are asked to avoid the area if possible, to avoid delays.
Separately, on Wednesday, June 5, the Township Engineering Department will be completing road work on Howard Road in the Kingston neighborhood, from Chelten Parkway to Kingston Drive. The work includes roadway resurfacing and isolated concrete repairs. For more information on either project, please call the Department of Engineering at (856) 424-3203.
