LourdesCare at Cherry Hill awarded NJBIA New Good Neighbor Award NJBIA for Briefing.jpg
LourdesCare at Cherry Hill has been awarded the New Jersey Business and Industry Association's New Good Neighbor Award for 2014. This annual award recognizes the best and most exciting commercial and industrial development projects in the state. The Lourdes project was selected base on its economic benefit and job creation, architectural design, and community involvement. We're proud that this project has become not just a beautiful landmark in our town, but a powerful engine of the economic revitalization that is going on in Cherry Hill. It has transformed the intersection of Brace Road and Route 70, and has helped to spur additional redevelopment in that area that includes the total renovation of the Ellisburg Circle Shopping Center, anchored by a Whole Foods opening later this month. Congratulations to the entire Lourdes team and everyone involved in the project. We're proud to call you our neighbors! Click here to read more about the award.

Commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day
Today marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, when more than 160,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, in an attempt to liberate Europe from Nazi occupation. More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft invaded the heavily fortified coastline, with the first wave of troops arriving to a devastating assault by German forces. The loss of life was staggering, with more than 9,000 killed or wounded, but their sacrifice enabled the surviving troops to gain a foothold in Europe, and was a crucial first step in breaking the Nazis' grip on the continent. Today, we remember the sacrifice of those who were killed, and we honor the bravery displayed by all those who took part in the invasion. As part of a series on New Jersey veterans who were present for D-Day, the Star-Ledger recently featured Cherry Hill resident Arthur Seltzer, a WWII Veteran who has helped plan the Township's Memorial Day ceremony for the last several years.

The CHPD has participated in the Torch Run for nearly 20 years, and our officers support a variety of other charitable causes throughout the year. Since 2001, the Department has donated more than $25,000 to various charities through events like the Torch Run and an ongoing snack sale inside police headquarters. Our men and women in uniform work every day to make our Township a better place to live, when they're on and off duty.

Cherry Hill Police, Fire departments host crash simulation at Cherry Hill WestMock Crash 2.jpg
The Cherry Hill Police and Fire Departments delivered an important message to seniors at Cherry Hill West this week: Drinking and driving can have devastating and life-altering consequences. The "Operation Prom" mock crash presented students with a realistic look at a crash involving four classmates who had been drinking at an after-prom party. While driving home, the students' car spun out of control, hitting a telephone pole and ejecting one passenger and trapping two others. Police and Fire quickly arrived at the scene, where they pronounced one student dead, arrested the driver, and worked to Mock Crash 3.jpgextricate the other two victims. As the students looked on, a narrator explained the physical, emotional and financial impacts of these students' decisions on the victims, their families, their friends and the community at large. Afterward, students took part in a discussion with the four "crash victims" from their graduating class. The valuable program, presented annually to seniors at both Cherry Hill High Schools, puts decision-making at the forefront of students' minds during the week of their proms - an important reminder as these young men and women begin driving and prepare for adulthood.

The Katz JCC invites Cherry
Hill Township to take part in the JCC
Maccabi Games from August 10-15. This is the largest annual gathering of Jewish athletes in the world, and this summer the JCC will welcome over 1,000 visiting athletes from across the
United States, Mexico, Great Britain and Israel, as well as over 200 local athletes
and their coaches, families and friends. Over 2,500 local volunteers
and 400 host families are needed to execute this huge and exciting undertaking, which will showcase our region to more than 10,000 spectators. Whether you have a few hours, a
day or several days to volunteer, anyone who wants to be involved can play a
meaningful role in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Jewish families are also being sought to house athletes who are arriving from
outside our community. To learn more about how you
can get involved this summer with the JCC Maccabi Games, visit www.katzjccmaccabi.org [http://www.katzjccmaccabi.org/] .
