Mayor, Council honor singers, musicians from Cherry Hill WestWest music proc for Briefing.jpg
On Monday night, Council and I honored students from Cherry Hill High School West's vocal and instrumental music ensembles, who traveled to Virginia Beach in May for the 2014 North American Music Festivals competition. Each of the ensembles excelled in their respective categories. In the vocal competition: Fermata and Men of Note earned "Superior" ratings in the women's and men's choir categories; the Chamber Singers earned a "Superior" rating in the madrigal choir division; the Symphonic Choirs and the West Singers earned "Superior" ratings in the mixed-choir division; and the West Singers won the award for Best Overall Choral Ensemble. Among the instrumental groups: The String Orchestra earned an "Excellent" rating; the Jazz Ensemble was the highest-scoring ensemble of all the instrumental groups; and the Wind Ensemble won 1st Place in the Open Division and was named Best Overall Band. We also recognized three individual musicians for their own personal achivements: Tom Michel, principal bassist for the All-South Jersey Orchestra and 5th chair for the New Jersey All-State Orchestra; R.C. Rossell, who was named Outstanding Guitar Soloist in the state and was one of just six musicians nationwide accepted to the Jazz Guitar Studio at the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music; and Carmelo Villegas, who was named Outstanding Trumpet Soloist in the state. Congratulations to all of these young men and women on their achievements!

           
Springdale Road improvement project scheduled to begin next week
Camden County is preparing to begin a three-month long road improvement project on Springdale Road between Kresson Road and Wilderness Drive. The $1.1 million project includes road resurfacing and a number of pedestrian improvements along the heavily traveled roadway, including the installation of sidewalks, curbing and bicycle lanes. Contractors will begin preliminary work on the road this Monday, June 16, with construction to begin on Monday, June 23. Weather-permitting, work will continue from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for approximately 90 days. Road crews expect to maintain one lane of traffic in each direction for the duration of the project; however, delays are possible. Motorists should plan their routes accordingly and use caution when traveling through the work zone.

Road maintenance, utility work continues next week around town
The Township Engineering Department will continue working on several local roads next week as part of the 2013 Road Maintenance Program. Crews will be completing work on Monmouth Road and Jefferson Avenue early next week, before beginning concrete work on Forrest Road (from Chapel to Sheffield) and on Sharrowvale Road (from Wayland to Sawmill) on Wednesday. Additionally, New Jersey American Water will be continuing water service installation on Fireside Lane on Monday, June 16, and water main installation on Split Rail Drive on Tuesday, June 17.

Mayor, Council honor Brad Molotsky for community service, philanthropy Molotsky for Briefing.jpg
This past Monday, the members of Council and I had the pleasure of honoring Brad Molotsky, a lifelong Cherry Hill resident who has done amazing things to give back to the community and help those in need. It's amazing to watch Brad in action: balancing a demanding career and a family, while giving his time and talents to various causes around our region. His accomplishments and contributions are too numerous to outline, but for those of you who don't know Brad, I'd like to share some examples. For years, Brad has served actively on the board of the Jewish Federation of South Jersey and other nonprofit organizations; he's raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity; he's worked closely with the Township, the County and area schools to help us become greener and more sustainable; he's helped to educate the public about how to create a greener, healthier future; he's helped to organize recycling events that have diverted thousands of pounds of recyclables out of our landfills; and he's currently leading local discussions about the need for special-needs housing in our area. And somehow, Brad still finds time for a career and his family, making events like his son's basketball games a top priority. Brad is a remarkable man and a great friend to Cherry Hill and South Jersey. His recognition is long overdue, but we're proud to finally, publicly thank him for his role in helping to make Cherry Hill a better place to live.

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.

Sponsored by the Children's Regional Hospital at Cooper, the space allows children to dress up as healthcare workers and learn the concepts related to caring for patients, and is meant to help ease the anxiety children might have when visiting the doctor or hospital. Highlights of the new exhibit include an ambulance, x-ray body puzzle, stitching station, and the crowd-favorite newborn nursery.

Street sweeping continues across Cherry Hill

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.

Discovery Museum reopens renovated Cooper Hospital Exhibit


On Friday morning, Township Council members Jim Bannar and Melinda Kane attended the grand reopening of the Garden State Discovery Museum's Cooper Hospital Exhibit, which was recently renovated to make it a more dynamic and engaging space for even the smallest children to explore. Sponsored by the Children's Regional Hospital at Cooper, the space allows children to dress up as healthcare workers and learn the concepts related to caring for patients, and is meant to help ease the anxiety children might have when visiting the doctor or hospital. Highlights of the new exhibit include an ambulance, x-ray body puzzle, stitching station, and the crowd-favorite newborn nursery. For more information on the Discovery Museum or its exhibits, call (856) 424-1233 or visit www.discoverymuseum.com [http://www.discoverymuseum.com/] .
