The following neighborhoods are scheduled for collection this week; a second collection is tentatively set for the week of Dec. 16: Kingston, Northwoods, Cherry Downs, Surrey Place East, Short Hills, Springbrook. Please avoid parking cars in the street on scheduled leaf-collection dates, and be sure to remove branches, twigs and other debris from leaf piles to ensure they can be collected.

Honoring some of Cherry Hill’s longest-standing businessesMerchantville CC.jpg
This week, I visited some of Cherry Hill's longest-standing businesses to recognize the contributions they have made to our community through the years. With the help of the Cherry Hill Historical Commission, we have identified many businesses that are 50 years or older, and I will be visiting each of them in the near future to recognize their longevity. Over the next several issues of the Weekly Briefing, I want to highlight each of these businesses individually, starting with our first visit: the Merchantville Country Club. Despite its name, Merchantville Country Club – founded in October 1892 – is perhaps the oldest business in Cherry Hill. The 9-hole, private course today boasts more than 350 members and in addition to golf, hosts a weekly bocce league, as well as special events. It is the 10th-oldest golf course in the United States. On Wednesday, I presented the club’s president, Tom Huder, and Manager Karen Wright with a plaque commemorating the club’s 100+ years of existence. Each of the businesses I visited this week – and those that I will honor in the future – has become a living piece of Cherry Hill’s history, and I’m honored to be able to recognize their longstanding investment and presence in our community. Click here to read about this project in the Courier-Post; if you know of a business that has been around for 50 years or more, please let us know by calling (856) 488-7878, or e-mailing me at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.
