Walk with the Mayor this Wednesday at Cherry Hill Mallmwclogo2.jpg
Join me, members of my staff and employees from Farmers Insurance for our next Walk with the Mayor, 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15, at Cherry Hill Mall. We'll start our day off on the right foot with a brisk, 2-mile walk around the inside of the Mall. I want to extend a special welcome and thanks to Farmers Insurance, a member of the Cherry Hill Township Business Council, for agreeing to participate in this month's walk. For 2014, we have invited all the members of our Business Council to bring their employees out to promote their businesses, the Mayor's Wellness Campaign, and wellness in the workplace. We were joined in December by dozens of managers and staff from the Holiday Inn. Walkers should meet by the guest services desk, and enter the mall through the entrance next to Bobby's Burger Palace, off of Route 38. If you can't make it next week, don't worry: We walk on the first Wednesday of every month through April. For more information, call my office at (856) 488-7878, or email DDovey@chtownship.com. I hope to see you there!

Township offers Christmas tree drop-off locations
Cherry Hill Township offers residents two locations to drop off their old Christmas trees for recycling. Residents can bring discarded trees to the rear of the Municipal Building (deposit in the outfield of the softball field off of Weld Avenue) and in the cul-de-sac at the Department of Public Works, 1 Perina Blvd. Both locations are accessible 24 hours a day through Jan. 17. Trees that are left curbside will be handled as yard waste and will be picked up for recycling on your regular trash day. However, trees that are wrapped in plastic will not be collected. For more information, please call the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.

Celebrating a milestone for a Township employeeMin Qian.jpg
On Friday, I was proud to join with staff members in Town Hall to celebrate a wonderful day for one of our longtime staff members. Min Qian, a payroll specialist in the Township Controller's Office, officially became a United States citizen on Jan. 6. Min, who has worked for the Township since 1998, is a native of Beijing, and has been working toward citizenship since 1999. Min is a true asset to the Township, and I know that she will take seriously the honor, privilege and responsibilities associated with being a United States citizen. I was happy to join Min's friends, husband and daughters in today's celebration. Please join me in extending your warmest congratulations to Min and her family!                      

Cherry Hill Fire Department launches smoke alarm campaign
Beginning this Saturday, Jan. 11, firefighters will go door-to-door across the Township offering free smoke alarm testing and installation to help keep Cherry Hill residents safe. Firefighters will be in different neighborhoods each weekend. The list of locations will be posted each week on the Department’s website and Facebook page. Watch for firefighters in Brandywoods and Apple Hill on Jan. 11, and in Brandywoods, Brookmeade, Apple Hill and Barclay Farm on Jan. 12. Check back often to see when the CHFD will be in your neighborhood. This campaign aims to increase awareness of the lifesaving role these alarms play when fire strikes, and it will save lives. Letting firefighters install these alarms inside your house will ensure that they are functional, and you can count on them to do their job when the unthinkable happens. Again, this service is FREE and available to all Cherry Hill residents.  Please note the Fire Department cannot service or replace hardwired alarms. If you are in need of a smoke alarm immediately, please call (856) 429-7441 to schedule an appointment.

Honoring Cherry Hill's oldest businesses: Atlas WallpaperAtlas.jpg
Atlas Interior Home Fashions was founded as Atlas Wallpaper in Philadelphia in 1925, and moved to its current location on Route 70 in 1961. The business, which now has showrooms in both Marlton and Cherry Hill, remains in the family today, and is operated by Grandfather Spivak's grandchildren. Each of the businesses we've highlighted in the past few weeks 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.
