Mayor Cahn completes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge MC Ice Bucket photo for Briefing.jpg
Last Wednesday, I completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and donated to the ALS Association in support of this very important cause. I was originally challenged by Evesham Mayor Randy Brown, and in turn, I passed it along to Council President David Fleisher and Cherry Hill Police Chief Bud Monaghan. Other Township officials, including Councilwoman Carole Roskoph, Councilman Jim Bannar, and a number of our Township staff, have taken the challenge, as well. As you probably know, the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised significant awareness - and, most importantly, tens of millions of dollars - for ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. For a link to my Ice Bucket Challenge video, click

Mayor Cahn, Councilwoman Roskoph celebrate end of summer at CHPL Library Carnival for Briefing.jpg          
On Thursday, Councilwoman Carole Roskoph and I helped to celebrate the end of another fun-filled summer with thousands of families from our area at the Cherry Hill Public Library's End-of-Summer Carnival. This annual event featured a pie-eating contest, carnival games, face painting, a moon bounce and other activities - including a special visit from Queen Elsa of Disney's "Frozen"! This year's event was one of the most heavily attended Carnivals in recent years, and I was thrilled to be a part of the festivities. Thank you to the Library staff and countless volunteers who helped to make it a reality for our residents. View pictures of the event on the
CHPL Facebook page. See below for other free upcoming events and activities at the Library!
