Local teens represent Cherry Hill at the 2013 Maccabi gamesMaccabi for briefing.jpg
Congratulations are in order for the 59 young athletes and almost a dozen coaches and organizers who represented Cherry Hill at the 2013 JCC Maccabi games, held Aug. 4-9 in Orange County, California. These remarkable young men and women were among more than 2,000 teens who took part in the week of events, and truly made our community proud. This annual event helps foster in our youth a sense of mutual respect and good sportsmanship, while allowing the teens to have fun and build friendships. The games will be held in Cherry Hill in 2014. Township Council and I will honor the athletes and coaches with a special proclamation at the start of this Monday's meeting.

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.

Erial crowned 10-11 State Little League Champions during finals at CHALLCHALL.jpg
I would like to congratulate Cherry Hill American Little League on successfully hosting the 2013 10-11 Little League State Championship last weekend at its complex on Oakdale Avenue. Over the course of five days, the state's four best teams (out of 364 that competed during the regular season) vied for the state title. Ultimately, the Little League team from Erial was crowned chamion. The entire CHALL organization worked diligently for months to prepare their complex to host these elite young athletes, and everyone involved should be proud. Council members Jim Bannar, Susan Shin-Angulo and Council Vice President Sara Lipsett joined me in helping to throw out the first pitch before games on Friday, Sunday and Monday, and we were honored to be a part of the celebration.
