Cherry Hill welcomes Little League players from Newtown, Connecticutnewtown.jpg
This past weekend, Cherry Hill had the honor of hosting a group of Little League players from Newtown, Connecticut, who were in the area for the weekend to go to a Phillies game. On both Saturday and Sunday, the Newtown players faced off in a goodwill exhibition game against players from National Little League's 11/12-year-old tournament team, at National's sports complex on Cooper Landing Road. Council President David Fleisher, Council Vice President Sara Lipsett, and Councilwoman Susan Shin-Angulo greeted the players, and along with Camden County Freeholder-Director Lou Cappelli, presented the team and its coaches with special proclamations declaring "Newtown, Connecticut Baseball Day" in the Township.

Construction underway on DeCou/Rotary multi-use trail
Construction is underway on a 3,000-foot multi-use trail that will connect residents of our Short Hills neighborhood to the Rotary/DeCou sports complex off of Evesham and Cropwell Roads. This project will increase safety and accessibility and greatly enhancing the recreational opportunities available to residents in that area. Funded entirely by a Camden County grant, work on the trail is expected to be completed in mid-July. While I do not anticipate any disruption to nearby homes, residents are reminded to stay away from any heavy construction equipment along the work site -- and to avoid crossing fenced construction areas for any reason. If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please call my office at (856) 488-7878.

Council members help dedicate Camden County's Boundless Field for special-needs athletes
Boundless Field.jpgLast Saturday, several Council members joined the Camden County Freeholders and dozens of local residents to help dedicate a new handicapped-accessible athletic facility for special needs children. The beautiful new Boundless Field, at Challenge Grove Park, will allow children with disabilities to play baseball and other organized sports on a playing surface that can accommodate their special needs. Boundless Field is located next to Jake's Place Playground at Challenge Grove Park, at the corner of Brace and Borton's Mill roads. It was a joyous occasion for everyone involved, and we're proud to host such a unique and wonderful facility right here in Cherry Hill!

Enjoy 'Music Under the Stars' this July at Barclay Farmstead
If you love live music, join us every week in July for the return of the "Music Under the Stars" series at historic Barclay Farmstead. Starting at 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday, the whole family will enjoy free music on the farmstead's front lawn. Bring a chair, a blanket, and even a picnic dinner, just don't forget your appetite for great music! Each show starts with a performance by an up-and-coming local band, and the historic Farmhouse is open for tours. The fun starts July 9; concerts are cancelled in the event of rain. Music Under the Stars is presented by Cherry Hill Township, with support from Concentra and Metro PCS. For more information, click

Charleston Swim Club raises awareness at 'Breaststroke for Hope' swim meetbreaststrokes.jpg
Councilwoman Susan Shin-Angulo helped raise awareness of an important health issue last Sunday, when she kicked off the first-ever "Breaststroke for Hope" swim meet and fundraiser at Charleston Swim Club. Councilwoman Angulo, a longtime member of the club, presented the event's organizers with a special proclamation recognizing the importance of breast cancer research, awareness, and early prevention -- and congratulating the swim club members for recognizing such an important cause. Proceeds from the event will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Philadelphia. The swim club is already looking forward to the fundraiser's second year, in 2014. For more information, click
