Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

Trash collection in some areas may be delayed until Saturday
Residents whose trash is typically collected on Thursday and Friday may be subject to delays in light of the Independence Day holiday. Friday served as a double-collection day along Thursday and Friday routes, and crews were working to complete their trash, recycling and yard-waste pickups before the end of the day Friday. With that said, it is very likely that trash in some areas will not be collected until Saturday. In light of this, if your trash was not collected by the end of the business day on Friday, please leave it at the curb, and it will be collected on Saturday. The Township’s waste-hauler, Republic Services of New Jersey, will have customer service representatives on hand from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday to handle any calls related to this matter. They can be reached at (856) 234-4000. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.

Cherry Hill celebrates Independence Day in patriotic fashionFireworks 2013 1.jpg
Despite an uncertain forecast for much of the day, hundreds of Cherry Hill residents joined Council President Dave Fleisher and Council members Susan Shin-Angulo and Jim Bannar to help celebrate our nation’s Independence with a stunning fireworks display this past Wednesday night at Cherry Hill High School West. Headlining band No Commitment entertained the audience with a fantastic and family-friendly show that featuFireworks 2013 2.jpgred a playlist to which everyone could sing and dance along. Finally, around 9:30 p.m., the packed crowd at Jonas Morris Stadium enjoyed a 20-minute fireworks display, set to a patriotic soundtrack. The evening would not have been possible if not for the generous support of our sponsors, the Cherry Hill Mall and Sun National Bank. Their continued support of Cherry Hill, our residents, and our community programming, has helped make Cherry Hill a better place to live and play for many years. We’ll see you next year!

Council members celebrate July 4 with neighbors in Erlton SouthErlton Parade 2013.jpg
Before Wednesday’s fireworks celebration, Council President Dave Fleisher and Council members John Amato, Jim Bannar and Susan Shin-Angulo helped kick off Independence Day at the Erlton South Civic Association’s annual Fourth of July parade. The Council members and some of their family members rode along Jefferson in classic cars, along with several other community groups – including representatives from the 2012 Cherry Bowl Champion Erlton Swim Club, neighborhood residents, bike riders, and the Quaker City String Band! Following the parade, residents gathered in Erlton park for a performance by the String Band and magician/comedian Brian Richards. My Gym provided a moon bounce, and neighborhood kids were treated to some food and face-painting until the fireworks! It was a fun-filled evening, and the Council members were proud to take part in the celebration.
