Mayor Cahn addresses international audience at Rotary conferenceRotary for Briefing.jpg
On Friday morning, I had the pleasure of welcoming more than 500 members of Rotary International to the Crowne Plaza for the annual Rotary International Zone Institute, a weekend-long leadership training seminar. This year's attendees included Rotarians from around the globe -- from parts of the Northeastern United States, Canada, France, Bermuda, and even Russia. Rotary is one of the world's oldest and largest community service organizations, and for more than 100 years, Rotarians have helped to foster peace, unity and tremendous advancements in the eradication of polio, among other noteworthy accomplishments. Cherry Hill is proud to be the home of their 2013 Zone Institute, and grateful for all that Rotary International does for our world.
                                   
Thank you to Springdale Farm for a successful Mayor's Wellness Day! Wellness Day 1.jpg
Last Sunday, I was pleased to partner with the staff at Springdale Farms to present the first-ever Mayor's Wellness Day at Springdale Farms.

A wonderful time was had by all, and I am grateful to our friends at Springdale Farm – and all the Wellness Partners who participated in Sunday’s event – for their continued support of the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign. We are just getting started for fall, so be sure to check out the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign website and Facebook page for more exciting and affordable events and activities in the coming months.

CHFD to begin Township-wide fire hydrant testing next weekhydrant2.jpg
The Cherry Hill Fire Department will begin its annual Township-wide fire hydrant testing this week, and will continue testing hydrants across town through the end of November. Testing requires that the CHFD flush every hydrant in the Township for a few minutes, in order to clear away sediment that may build up over time. Flushing may cause a temporary decrease in water pressure and temporary water discoloration. Residents who are customers of the Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission should note that the MPWC will be conducting its own hydrant flushing from 7 to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday nights from Sept. 22 to Oct. 3. Fire Department testing in these areas will begin on Oct. 15. MPWC customers with questions about their hydrant flushing should call (856) 663-0043.

September is National Preparedness Month: Do you have a plan?
If disaster struck, what would your family do? Where would you go? How would you get there? And if you became separated, how would you find one another? These are all questions that need to be answered before an emergency occurs. September is National Preparedness Month, and I would like to take this opportunity to remind all Cherry Hill residents of the importance of having a plan to stay informed and stick together in case of emergencies. FEMA and Ready.gov have made it simple to Make a Plan and and protect yourselves and your loved ones when disaster strikes. Click here [http://www.ready.gov/] for more information.
