Pay tribute to a Cherry Hill hero at Sunday's Jeremy Kane Benefit Run
Join us this Sunday as we honor one of Cherry Hill’s heroes at the fourth annual Jeremy Kane 5K Benefit Run and 1-mile walk, sponsored by Rutgers-Camden in cooperation with Cherry Hill Township. The run, which honors Marine Lance Cpl. Jeremy Kane, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2010, starts at 8:30 a.m. at Cherry Hill High School East, 1750 Kresson Road. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with a brief ceremony at 8, followed immediately by the run. Proceeds help fund a veterans' scholarship at Rutgers-Camden in Jeremy’s name. To date, the race has raised nearly $60,000 for the scholarship. For more information or to register for the run, click here. This is an easy run for a great cause – and Sunday’s weather should be beautiful. We hope to see you there!

Remembering U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg
This week, New Jersey said goodbye to Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who passed away this past Monday at age 89. Sen. Lautenberg was a World War II veteran and dedicated public servant who will be forever remembered for his willingness to fight for the causes in which he believed. There is no doubt that his advocacy throughout the years, particularly with regard to public health and transportation improvements, has left a lasting impression on our society, and made New Jersey – and the United States – a better place to live. Our thoughts are with Sen. Lautenberg’s family, friends, and all those who knew and loved him. Sen. Lautenberg touched the lives of countless people, and his legacy will not be forgotten.

Mayor, Council thank the members of Cherry Hill Township’s volunteer boardsVolunteer event for briefing.jpg
On Wednesday, Council members David Fleisher, Susan Shin Angulo, Melinda Kane and Sara Lipsett joined me to thank dozens of members of Cherry Hill’s volunteer boards at a special appreciation dinner at the Croft Farm Arts Center. Volunteers were treated to hot hors d’oeuvres, beverages and other light refreshments courtesy of Wegman’s and Andreotti’s Viennese Café, as a way to say “thank you” for their countless hours of work on behalf of Cherry Hill’s residents. Volunteer board members help plan and promote events and activities, and, in some instances advise various Township departments on issues of importance to their constituencies. Their contributions make a lasting impact on the quality of life in our Township, and the work they do is greatly appreciated. For more information on Boards and Commissions, click here.

New Jersey honors 19 veterans with distinguished service medalsNJMAVA event for briefing.jpg
On Tuesday, I was proud to join other elected officials and representatives from New Jersey’s Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to honor 19 area veterans as they received the state’s Distinguished Service Medal and a number of other awards during a ceremony at the Cherry Hill Mall. Among the 19 veterans honored were four Vietnam veterans from Cherry Hill – as well as several who had served in Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom. Honorees were awarded some combination of five medals from the State of New Jersey: the New Jersey Distinguished Service Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and the POW-MIA Medal. Each of the 19 men recognized this week served their country with courage and honor, and it was my honor to pay tribute to them. For photos of Tuesday’s event, click here.

“Hey, Guys: Was Your Last Doctor a Pediatrician?” At 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 11, the Cherry Hill Public Library is teaming up with Kennedy Health System to bring a free program focused on men’s health. “I don’t need to see a doctor!” “I’m FINE!” Sound familiar?
