Council members cheer hundreds of swimmers at Cherry Bowl 2013Cherry Bowl 13.jpg
Last week, Council President Dave Fleisher and Council members Susan Shin Angulo and JIm Bannar helped kick off the year's biggest swimming event, Cherry Bowl 2013, at the Wexford Leas Swim Club! This year's event, in it's 54th year, featured dozens of swimmers from each of our local clubs. In the end, the swimmers from Covered Bridge emerged victorious. Nevertheless, it was a great day for all involved. Congratulations to Covered Bridge on its big win, and congratulations to Wexford Leas' members, executive board and the Cherry Bowl planning committee on carrying out a wonderful event!

County sprays for mosquitoes in Cherry Hill this summerMosquito.png
The Camden County Mosquito Commission is spraying for mosquitoes throughout the summer in Cherry Hill. This week, the commission sprayed in Ashland, Barclay, Erlton North, Kingston, Kings Croft, Windsor Park and Woodcrest. The spray is not harmful to humans and pets, but those who are sensitive to irritants or have respiratory concerns should avoid direct contact. The Commission sprays in neighborhoods and open spaces, but will not spray on private property. Residents can curb the growth of mosquito populations by checking their properties for sources of standing water, such as swimming pools, trash can lids and other containers. Click here for more information on the sprayings and mosquito prevention. For further information or to report a problem, contact the Mosquito Commission at (856) 566-2945 or skeeters@camdencounty.com.
