Cherry Hill Police Department mourns retired K-9 BozBoz.png
This week, the Cherry Hill Police Department lost a member of its family. Retired K-9 Boz, #K12, passed away on Monday, Jan. 27. K-9 Boz was born on March 11, 2000, in the Czech Republic, and joined the Cherry Hill Police Department in November 2001. After graduating from the Philadelphia Police Canine Academy, Boz became the first explosive-detection canine in the CHPD Canine Unit’s 20-year history, and was Cherry Hill’s first explosive-detection K-9 certified by the ATF. Boz faithfully served for nine years and one month, from Nov. 26, 2001, until Jan. 3, 2011. Please join me in sending our sincerest condolences to K-9 Boz’s handler, Police Officer Kevin Seta, his family, and the entire Cherry Hill Police Department during this time of loss.

Mayor, Council honor owners of Kaminski’s for community philanthropyKaminskis for briefing.jpg
This past Monday night, Council and I presented a special proclamation to Kaminski’s Sports Bar and Restaurant as a token of our appreciation for the restaurant’s years of giving back to this community. Since opening its doors in 1965, Kaminski’s has always been an asset to and friend of Cherry Hill. Its owners have supported a number of local initiatives, including Township holiday events, my Mayor’s Wellness Campaign, and our Welcome to Cherry Hill reception in 2013. Most notably, in the days following Hurricane Sandy in 2012 – when half of Cherry Hill remained without power – Kaminski’s donated hot food for countless residents in need of assistance. Their philanthropy can’t be summed up in just one paragraph – and for that reason alone, we were proud to honor their contributions to Cherry Hill throughout the years. Congratulations, and thank you!

CHFD to continue smoke alarm program this weekend
The Cherry Hill Fire Department will resume its smoke alarm campaign this weekend, going door-to-door in several neighborhoods offering free smoke alarm testing and installation.

Check back often to see when the CHFD will be in your neighborhood. If you are in need of a smoke alarm immediately, please call (856) 429-7441 to schedule an appointment.

Honoring Cherry Hill's longest-standing businesses: Lou & Ann's DeliLou and Ann.jpg
Lou & Ann Napolitano opened their delicatessen on Route 70 in 1959. Lou, who worked for Camden's Mighty Good Baking Company at the time, came up with the idea while working on his delivery route one day, and nearly 55 years later, it remains as one of Cherry Hill's oldest family-owned businesses. Today, the Deli is operated by Lou Napolitano, Jr., who has worked there since childhood! 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 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.
