Don't miss Harvest Festival, this Sunday at historic Croft FarmHF for Briefing.jpg
Celebrate fall this weekend with me and members of Township Council, as the annual Harvest Festival returns to historic Croft Farm from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Residents of all ages will enjoy this free, family-friendly day of crafts, entertainment and fall-themed activities. Special activities include a pumpkin patch, hayrides and a farmer's market, courtesy of Springdale Farms; other returning favorites include pony rides, a petting zoo, a moon bounce, face painting, and the Halloween costume parade. This year, we ask that visitors remember to bring canned goods or another nonperishable food donation for the Food Bank of South Jersey. While you're there, be sure to check out the Fire Department's Fire & Life Safety Day activities, and parents can register their children for a Kid Card ID through the Cherry Hill Police Department. This weekend's forecast looks beautiful - so don't miss out on this fantastic event. I hope to see you there!

Road word scheduled next week on Brace, Old Orchard Roads
The New Jersey Department of Transportation continues its work on Brace Road on Monday of next week. From 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. (overnight), drivers should watch for lane shifts between Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Route 561) and Kresson Road, as DOT crews work to complete sidewalk repairs ahead of road reconstruction that is expected to take place this fall.
Additionally, the Township's Engineering Department will be continuing curb repairs and related work along Old Orchard Road between Route 70 and Highgate Lane between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Residents 'Walk with the Mayor' at the Cherry Hill MallWalk with Mayor October 13.jpg
I would like to take a minute to thank the dozen or so residents who turns out as we kicked off the Township's monthly "Walk with the Mayor" this past Wednesday at the Cherry Hill Mall. It was a lively and energetic crowd, especially on a morning that was rather damp and chilly. Couldn't make it this week? Don't worry: Walk with the Mayor is scheduled on the third Wednesday of every month from October through April. For more information, contact my office at (856) 488-7878, e-mail me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com, or visit the Mayor's Wellness Campaign online and on Facebook.

Explore South Jersey's 'Hidden History' Oct. 23 at the LibraryHidden History.jpg
South Jersey is perhaps best known for its beachside boardwalks, glitzy Atlantic City hotels, and blueberry farms - but behind these iconic symbols are the overlooked tales that are unique to New Jersey. While much of Harriet Tubman's life is well-known, her time in Cape May is usually overlooked by biographers. Few know that the classic American drive-in movie theater was born in South Jersey. Often overshadowed by its more urban northern counterpart, South Jersey has an incredible hidden past. Join author Gordon Bond as he leads a discussion of these tales and more, in a special free event in honor of National Humanities Month, "Hidden History of South Jersey: From the Capital to the Shore," at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Cherry Hill Public Library. For more information, call (856) 488-7886, or e-mail CHHHC@chtownship.com.
