July is National Park and Recreation Month, and on Monday afternoon, several Township staffers and Council members joined in a special outdoor aerobics class to celebrate our new status as a New Jersey Healthy Town, and to usher in a month of events and activities aimed at getting residents moving outdoors.

Township honors young resident who raises funds for CHOP Spencer Levy.jpg
On Monday night, Council and I had the pleasure of honoring Township resident Spencer Levy, who for the last 7 years, has organized a cookie fundraiser to benefit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Spencer, who just completed seventh grade at Beck Middle School, began his Cookies for Kids campaign when he was just 6 years old. Each year, Spencer and his mom, Julie, bake thousands of cookies that are sold to raise money for Family Life and other important programs at the pediatric hospital. This year, Spencer's campaign yielded roughly 2,000 cookies and raised nearly $2,000. To date, Cookies for Kids has donated more than $6,500 to CHOP. Spencer is an inspirational young man, and an example for all of us. Please join me in applauding Spencer's work, and thanking him for his continued efforts to benefit those in need.

           
                       
Camden County road updates: Springdale Road, Woodcrest Road
Beginning tomorrow, June 28, Camden County will reduce the posted speed limit to 25mph and restricting the lane width in both directions on the Woodcrest Road bridge over the PATCO high-speed line in Cherry Hill. These changes will reduce the amount of weight placed on the bridge's exterior girders, which require structural repairs. Please plan your trip accordingly and allow for extra time when traveling in the area.
Additionally, work began this week to resurface Springdale Road between Kresson Road and Wilderness Drive. The project will last approximately 3 months and includes road resurfacing and a number of pedestrian improvements along the heavily traveled roadway, including the installation of sidewalks, curbing and bicycle lanes. Weather-permitting, work is scheduled from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The road will remain open throughout the project, but delays are possible. Motorists should plan their commutes accordingly.

Mayor, Council welcome Whole Foods Market to Cherry Hill Whole Foods for Briefing.jpg
Last week, several members of Council and I joined officials at Whole Foods Market and Federal Realty Investment Trust to celebrate the long-awaited grand opening of the grocer's Cherry Hill location at the Ellisburg Shopping Center. It was a festive morning that began with a ceremonial bread-breaking in front of hundreds of store employees, local officials, neighbors and eager shoppers. The 45,000-square-foot store is a welcome addition to the former Ellisburg Circle, and along with LourdesCare  at Cherry Hill, has been a powerful engine for economic development and revitalization in our community. The store is Whole Foods' 12th location in New jersey and one of more than 380 stores internationally. Since the day the project was announced, Whole Foods has injected new life and energy into the Ellisburg area, and I was proud to help celebrate its opening along with Council members Dave Fleisher, Jim Bannar, Susan Shin Angulo and Melinda Kane and Camden County Freeholder Jeff Nash.

Street sweeping continues across Cherry Hill street sweeping.jpg
The Township's annual street sweeping program is continuing in neighborhoods across town, in the wake of a historically snowy winter that left a significant amount of sand and other debris on local roads. Three sweepers are currently making their way through 260 miles of municipal roads. The volume of debris on the roads has slowed this year's sweeping program significantly, and unfortunately, sweepers cannot pick up sand and debris that has been swept into a pile. Residents with questions or concerns about the 2014 street sweeping program, contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Katz JCC, Girls on the Run celebrate another successful season

Congratulations to the young women who successfully participated in the latest installment of the Katz JCC's Girls on the Run program, which culminated in a celebratory 5K race a few weeks ago. Girls on the Run, a partnership between the JCC and the Cherry Hill Mayor's Wellness Campaign, looks to help boost the confidence and self-image of girls in South Jersey ages 8 to 11. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the curriculum inspires participants to build friendships while offering discussion points that include emotional health, nutrition, positive attitude and personal values through coach-led discussion and running games. For more information on Girls on the Run, contact Jayne Miller Morgan at the JCC at jmorgan@jfedsnj.org [mailto:jmorgan@jfedsnj.org] or (856) 424-4444, ext. 1140.

Street sweeping continues across Cherry Hill

The Township's annual street sweeping program is continuing in neighborhoods across town, in the wake of a historically snowy winter that left a significant amount of sand and other debris on local roads. Three sweepers are currently making their way through 260 miles of municipal roads. The volume of debris on the roads has slowed this year's sweeping program significantly, and unfortunately, sweepers cannot pick up sand and debris that has been swept into a pile. Residents with questions or concerns about the 2014 street sweeping program, contact the Department of Public Works at (856) 424-4422. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
