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.            

Memorial Day ceremony honors those who gave all for our country Memorial Day 2014 for Briefing 2.jpg
On Monday, hundreds of area residents came together to honor and remember those who have given their lives in service to the United States at the Township's annual Memorial Day observance, held at the Municipal Complex on Mercer Street. The ceremony was a beautiful tribute to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and was made particularly special by the words of Brig. Gen. James Grant, who delivered a beautiful and moving keynote speech. I wantMemorial Day 2014 for Briefing.jpg to thank all those who made this year's event possible, including the Cherry Hill Police and Fire Honor Guard, American Legion Post 372, Jewish War Veterans Post 126, and John Giacoboni, Jerry Salvucci and the volunteers who helped to cook and serve lunch for the veterans and other guests in attendance. While Memorial Day has passed, let us always remember and be grateful for the brave servicemen and women who are no longer with us, and the families who share in their sacrifice.

Mayor, Council honor the Cherry Hill Alternative High School Alternative HS proc for Briefing.jpg
On Monday night, Council and I honored students and staff from the Cherry Hill Alternative High School, which was recently named a National School of Character by the Character Education Partnership. Schools of Character undergo a rigorous screening process, and are ultimately selected because they have integrated character education into their daily lives, in an effort to produce young men and women who are responsible, respectful and engaged citizens. The School of Character designation is a prestigious one, awarded to just 41 schools throughout the United States this year. The Alternative School has worked hard to reach this point, and we couldn't be more proud. Please join me in congratulating Principal Jim Riordan, Teacher Dianne O'Brien, and all of the students and staff on this wonderful achievement!

Cherry Hill honors Recycling and Safety Coordinator Chris Higgins Chris Higgins for Briefing.jpg
This week, Cherry Hill said goodbye to Chris Higgins, who retires this week after nearly 21 years as the Public Works Department's Safety and Recycling Coordinator. Since June 1993, Chris has worked hard to improve safety for our Public Works personnel, increase the Township's recycling tonnage, and set the trash and recycling routes that we follow today. And although many residents may not know who Chris is, one of his most important jobs has been to work closely with my office to address issues and concerns from residents. In recognition of his contributions to Cherry Hill through the years, I presented him with a special proclamation declaring a day in his name. Chris has been a professional and a pleasure to work with, and he will be missed. Please join me in thanking Chris for everything he's done for Cherry Hill, and in wishing him a happy and relaxing retirement!

Street sweeping continues across Cherry Hill street sweeping.jpg
The Township's annual street sweeping program began in mid-March, and will continue in neighborhoods across town over the next several weeks, with three sweepers deployed to remove sand, salt and other debris from 260 miles of municipal roads. Because of weather and other factors -- including a larger volume of debris than in most years, due to the historic winter we've faced -- a detailed sweeping schedule is not available. Rest assured if you have not yet seen a sweeper, it will be coming your way in the coming weeks. Weather-permitting, each street will be swept twice. Residents with questions or concerns about the 2014 street sweeping program, contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422.

The event, which focused on addressing various needs within our community, was attended by a host of community leaders and local business owners. The ministry hopes to form partnerships with other agencies who share in its mission to offer life-changing programs and events for people in our area. Founded by Senior Pastors Ray and Tracey Bernard, Impacting Your World positions itself as "a real church for real life, with real solutions." Two weekly services are held at the ministry's Cherry Hill campus, 2901 W. Chapel Ave., at 10 a.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. Thursday.
