Mayor, Council welcome hundreds to the 2013 Harvest Festival at Croft FarmHarvest Fest 1.jpg
Last Sunday, hundreds of local residents and their families came out to historic Croft Farm for an afternoon of fall-themed festivities at the Township's annual Harvest Festival and Fire & Life Safety Day. From noon to four, people of all ages strolled around the historic property and took part in the fall fun -- including a special pumpkin patch, petting zoo, tractor rides and much more! Council President Dave Fleisher, Council members Susan Shin Angulo, Jim Bannar, Sara Lipsett and John Amato, and Assemblywoman Pam Lampitt welcomed festivalgoers, and congratulated about a dozen chiHarvest Fest 2.jpgldren who participated in a special Halloween costume parade. In all, it was a wonderful way to kick off the fall and celebrate the local art, culture and camaraderie that help make Cherry Hill such a special place to live. I want to thank the Cherry Hill Police and Fire Departments for their continued partnership, and this year's sponsors for supporting this wonderful event, especially Kennedy Health System, Springdale Farm, Concentra, My Gym, the International Sports & Skating Centre, MetroPCS and Melitta. We'll see you next year!

As in past years, the CHPD recommends that children trick-or-treat between the hours of 3 and 7 p.m. on Thursday, and an 8 p.m. curfew is recommended for children who are not accompanied by an adult.

Celebrating Cherry Hill's first same-sex marriagesWedding.jpg
If you followed the news this week, you most likely saw coverage of the first same-sex marriages in the state of New Jersey, which became legal at 12:01 a.m. Monday. I was proud to preside over Cherry Hill's first four same-sex marriages in a very moving and truly special ceremony on Monday evening. It was one of my life's greatest honors, to be asked to legally marry these four wonderful couples - and I was humbled to be a part of a ceremony filled with so much love and joy. I want to thank Wegman's, for donating a beautiful wedding cake that provided the finishing touch to make the event even more memorable. But most importantly, I want to thank the four couples - Rose and Renai, Ed and Dennis, Megan and Leigh and Manish and Jeff - and their friends and families, for allowing me to be a part of their long-awaited special day. I wish all of you a lifetime of love and happiness! Read all about this wonderful event and view related videos and photos at the Courier-Post Online, Cherry Hill Patch, Philadelphia Inquirer, and CBS3.
