Mayor, Council celebrate 50 years of Ponzio's in Cherry HillPonzios 50th.jpg
On Wednesday night, I joined hundreds of area residents to celebrate 50 years of Ponzio's Diner during the Cooper Foundation's 2014 Jim Fifis Lung Cancer Research Fund event, held inside the landmark eatery. Ponzio's opened at the intersection of Route 70 and Kings Highway in 1964 and stands today as Cherry Hill's oldest restaurant. Along with Councilwomen Melinda Kane and Carole Roskoph, I presented a special proclamation to members of the Fifis family, which has owned the restaurant since its inception. Wednesday's event raised an estimated $130,000 for the lung cancer fund and its work through the Cooper Foundation. Please join me in congratulating the Fifis family and the extended Ponzio's family on reaching this milestone, and in wishing them many, many years of continued success.

Council members, community celebrate grand reopening of Old Orchard ParkOld Orchard Park.jpg
Last Saturday, members of Cherry Hill Township Council and the Cherry Hill Environmental Board joined residents of Old Orchard and families from Sharp Elementary School for the grand reopening of the newly renovated Old Orchard Park, followed by a free outdoor screening of The Muppet Movie. The heavily utilized park, located off of Thornhill Road behind the elementary school, received a significant facelift this spring, including new playground equipment funded in part by a $25,000 grant from the Camden County Board of Freeholders. Visitors also joined the Cherry Hill Environmental Board to tour the half-mile Old Orchard Trail to view recently completed improvements that include a new informational kiosk, a bag station to help visitors curb their dogs, and the installation of a handicap-accessible portion of trail that is being constructed in several phases. All trail improvements have been facilitated by Boy Scouts from Cherry Hill's Troop 166, in cooperation with the Township's Environmental Board. Council President Dave Fleisher, Vice President Sara Lipsett, and Councilwomen Susan Shin Angulo and Carole Roskoph joined in the celebration and ribbon-cutting, to kick off what was a beautiful night for a movie under the stars.
