Walk with the Mayor and the CHPD on April 16 at Cherry Hill Mall

Please join me at 8 a.m. this Wednesday, April 16, as I team up with the Cherry Hill Police Department for a very special Walk with the Mayor at Cherry Hill Mall. Chief Bud Monaghan and representatives from each of the Department’s units will join us for this 2-mile walk as an early celebration of National Police Week. Don’t miss out on special giveaways, and a chance to meet the Chief, Department staff officers, and representatives from Community Relations, Traffic Safety, Patrol, the K-9 unit, the Investigative unit, and the Office of Emergency Management in a relaxed and more informal setting. All attendees will be entered into a raffle to win a $25 gift card to Kuzina by Sofia. Come out, meet the Mayor and some of Cherry Hill’s finest, and see why the New Jersey Healthcare Quality Institute has designated Cherry Hill as one of just 16 “Healthy Towns” in New Jersey for our Mayor’s Wellness Campaign! Participants should meet at the Guest Services desk in the Mall’s Grand Court, using the entrance between Bobby’s Burger Palace and Seasons 52.

Kingston Elementary students celebrate Autism Awareness Month

In celebration of Autism Awareness Month, nearly 500 students, faculty and staff from Kingston Elementary School came together Wednesday afternoon to form a giant puzzle-piece ribbon, the symbol for autism awareness. The CDC estimates that 1 in every 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. Wednesday's event was one of several activities scheduled during the day aimed at educating students about the theme of "How to be a Friend to Someone with Autism." The day included school-wide read-ins of "My Brother Charlie" and "Understanding Sam," discussions about Autism Spectrum Disorder, special art projects, and a school assembly. I want to thank the students and staff of Kingston Elementary for helping to promote autism awareness.

CHYAA Little League kicks off its 2014 season with Mayor Cahn, Council

Last Sunday morning, Council members Susan Shin Angulo and Jim Bannar joined me in helping to celebrate the start of Cherry Hill Youth Athletic Association’s 2014 Little League season. It was a beautiful morning for the league's annual parade of players, and I had the honor of throwing out one of the season's ceremonial first pitches. Little League seasons are kicking off across the Township, and I want to wish everyone involved, across each of Cherry Hill’s Little Leagues -- the players, coaches, parents and league leadership -- a fun and successful 2014 season!

Mayor, Council honor gymnast Susannah Balderstone

At Monday night’s Township Council meeting, Council and I honored 12-year-old Cherry Hill resident Susannah Balderstone for her gymnastic achievements. Susannah, a sixth-grader at Rosa International Middle School, is a Level 8 gymnast who broke state records in both All-Around and Floor competitions in early March. Two weeks later, Susannah placed 6th overall at regionals in Doylestown, Pa., and is now ranked 25th in the country at her Level.

Bob's Discount Furniture donates $30,000 to the Special Olympics

On Monday, I joined representatives from Bob’s Discount Furniture as they presented a $30,000 donation to the Special Olympics, part of the chain’s nationwide charitable outreach efforts. The funds were collected entirely from patrons at Bob’s stores across the country, as part of their Café Collections for a Cause campaign. In the Café of each Bob’s store, customers are invited to leave donations that are collected each quarter and then given to a designated non-profit organization. Bob’s opened in Cherry Hill earlier this year, and already they are making a difference! I want to thank all those who contributed for their overwhelming generosity, and recognize the management and staff at Bob’s for their commitment to supporting worthwhile causes in the communities they serve.

NuEar Hearing Center opens on Cooper Landing Road

This week, I helped to celebrate the grand opening of the NuEar Hearing Center, a family-owned hearing health-care office owned by Cherry Hill resident Heather Loveland.

Councilwoman Kane honors 12-year-old Cherry Hill author

Last weekend, Councilwoman Melinda Kane helped pay tribute to a remarkable young man, Cherry Hill resident Kyle Dixon. At just 12 years old, Kyle is already a self-published author of the children's book "Jay Bubblebee: The Bee Who Started it All." "Jay Bubblebee" is the story of a young bee who, in his father's absence, is tasked with running his family's business in order to save their home. The moral of the story is one that should be shared often with our young people: that children possess an incredible amount of strength and potential, even in the face of adversity. Kyle's ability to relay this important message to his peers at such a young age is truly inspirational, and we are proud to recognize his accomplishments. Please join me in congratulating Kyle on all he has already achieved, and in wishing him all the best in the future!

Take Camden County’s Superstorm Sandy Health & Wellness Survey

Camden County wants to hear from local residents to make sure the health and well-being needs of individuals impacted by Superstorm Sandy are addressed. To assist in this effort, the County has issued a survey that will assess the effectiveness of the original outreach for Superstorm Sandy. Although Camden County was less affected than other areas in the state, there were several dozen residents in Cherry Hill that registered for assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). There may be other residents in the County who did not seek assistance for property damage because they were unaware, encountered barriers to assistance, or were overwhelmed by the event and continue to have unmet needs. Click here to read more and to take the survey [] .
