Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

Town Hall closing early for Thanksgiving; no trash collection on Thursday
Township offices will close at 3 p.m. today for the Thanksgiving holiday and will be closed on Friday, Nov. 29. Our offices will reopen for normal business hours on Monday, Dec. 2.
There will be no trash, recycling or yard-waste collection on Thursday's holiday. Instead, Thursday and Friday routes will both be collected on Friday. Crews expect to complete all routes by the end of the day Friday; however, if collection is delayed, collection will resume on Saturday morning until all routes have been completed

Mayor, Council wish everyone a safe and happy holiday            
On behalf of Township Council and everyone in Town Hall, I'd like to wish all Cherry Hill residents a safe, happy and festive Thanksgiving - and Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate it. Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for all of life's gifts and blessings, and I sincerely hope everyone has a chance to relax and enjoy time with their friends and loved ones this weekend.

Help welcome, honor local veterans and troops on the Battleship New Jersey
Before you settle in to give thanks with your own families, I invite you to come out tomorrow morning to help offer homeless veterans and active-duty troops some holiday cheer, as well. The Battleship New Jersey, in partnership with the Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs, is hosting a special full-course turkey dinner on Thanksgiving, to be served by volunteers onboard the Battleship. Residents can join in the celebration and welcome attendees from the pier of the Battleship by 10:30 a.m. tomorrow. The Camden Parking Authority is offering free parking in Lot 2, diagonal from the Susquehanna Bank Center, for this special event. Our men and women in uniform have given so much to protect our country; let's show them our thanks for their sacrifices. Click here for more information.

Community celebrates the start of the holiday seasonHoliday Lighting 2013.jpg
On Monday, Council and I joined hundreds of local families and school groups to celebrate the start of the holiday season at the Township's annual holiday tree and menorah lighting ceremony. Singers from the Kid Academy Learning Center, Christ Our Light Church, and Cherry Hill High Schools East and West provided the evening's entertainment, delivering a lively assortment of seasonal tunes, and a special visit from Santa Claus himself completed the festivities. I'd like to thank all of our singers for their wonderful performances, as well as the residents who turned out for their support of this terrific and lively community event. Special thanks to the Cherry Hill Senior Advisory Board for decorating the Community Center and our Christmas tree, and to AristaCare for donating latkes for the event. And, as always, the evening would not have been possible without the support of the Recreation Department and our sponsors at Focal Point Custom Renovations, Kempo Family Fitness Center, The Goddard School, the New Jersey School of Music, and Sweet and Sassy. We'll see you next year!

Cherry Hill schools, businesses make large donation to the CH Food PantryFood Drive photo.jpg
I want to recognize the hard work and tremendous generosity displayed by the organizations who collected for this year's Thanksgiving Food Drive, organized by the Township Recreation Department. This year's donations went directly to the Cherry Hill Food Pantry, which serves hundreds of Cherry Hill families throughout the year. Food Pantry workers estimated that they received close to 30,000 pounds of food this year -- a remarkable display of generosity that represents exactly what makes Cherry Hill such a wonderful place to live. This year's collection sites were Horace Mann Elementary School, Beck Middle School, Russell Knight Elementary School, Sharp Elementary School, Bret Harte Elementary, the Barclay Early Childhood Center, the St. Thomas Hellenic School PTO, KinderCare, the Goddard School, Onyx Equities, American Collectors Insurance, the Seventh Day Adventist Church, and the Cherry Hill Public Library. Melitta Coffee donated turkeys to complement the other Thanksgiving trimmings. I am truly grateful to be the Mayor of such a selfless community - and proud to be a Cherry Hill resident.

Cherry Hill Township will host a Red Cross Blood Drive from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, in the Carman Tilelli Community Center, 820 Mercer St. Make your appointment now, and give blood to help save a life this holiday season.

Honoring Cherry Hill businesses: Bayard's Chocolates & Red Eagle TavernBayards for Briefing.jpg
As we continue to honor some of Cherry Hill's oldest businesses, I'd like to spotlight two businesses this week: Bayard's Chocolates, on Route 70, and the Red Eagle Tavern, on Route 38. Bayard's was opened in 1938 in the Collingswood home of James Kelly. Kelly displayed the sweet treats on his dining room table. The business moved to then-Delaware Township in 1956, and to its present location on Route 70 in the early 1970s. As a nod to tradition, the candy is still displayed on tables. 

The Red Eagle is a rare Red Eagle for Briefing.jpgfind in this day and age: A home-grown tavern that caters to the locals and offers a full menu of freshly cooked food. The family-owned bar was opened in 1950 by Kay Labricciosa and her husband, Tony. Labricciosa ran the business into her late 90s, and today, it's still operated by her daughter, Sissy - who fondly recalls its heyday as a favorite watering hole for jockeys and others who would filter in from the nearby Garden State Park racetrack. Each of these businesses 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. Read more about this project in the Courier-Post and the Cherry Hill Sun. 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.
