Cherry Hill Township Council appoints Brian Bauerle to fill vacant seatBauerle for Briefing.jpg
Township resident Brian Bauerle was sworn in last night as the newest member of Cherry Hill's Township Council. His appointment came during a special meeting to fill the seat that became vacant with the passing of longtime Councilman N. John Amato in late September. Councilman Bauerle is a father of three and a Knollwood resident and is active throughout the community, as a volunteer youth soccer coach, a member of the Board of the Cherry Hill Soccer Club, and as a member of the Barclay Farm Swim Club. He and his wife are also actively involved in activities with their three daughters, who attend Kilmer Elementary School. Brian has been involved in our community in so many ways, and he embodies many of the characteristics that made his predecessor, Councilman Amato, so beloved in our community -- he shares our commitment to strong, vibrant neighborhoods and a fiscally responsible government, and I know he will serve the residents of Cherry Hill to the best of his ability. Please join me in congratulating Councilman Bauerle on his appointment. Click here to read more.

Thank you to our National Public Lands Day volunteersNPLD 2014.jpg
Last Saturday, more than a dozen Cherry Hill residents volunteered their time to help beautiful our local public lands as part of National Public Lands Day 2014. Led by the Cherry Hill Environmental Board and the Cherry Hill Trail Crew, our volunteers completed a number of projects in and around historic Croft Farm and on our various Township trails. Projects included clearing a red trail on the Bunker Hill Trail network, wood chipping on the Croft Farm Nature Trail, replacing trail markers, and mounting a display case at the Downs Farm Trail kiosk. The volunteers' willingness to come out to help beautify and preserve our local natural resources is an example for all of us, and a great example of why Cherry Hill is a great place to live, work and play. Thank you to CHEB, the Trail Crew and all of our volunteers for their hard work and dedication.

Thank you to our National Public Lands Day volunteers
Last Saturday, more than a dozen Cherry Hill residents volunteered their time to help beautiful our local public lands as part of National Public Lands Day 2014. Led by the Cherry Hill Environmental Board and the Cherry Hill Trail Crew, our volunteers completed a number of projects in and around historic Croft Farm and on our various Township trails. Projects included clearing a red trail on the Bunker Hill Trail network, wood chipping on the Croft Farm Nature Trail, replacing trail markers, and mounting a display case at the Downs Farm Trail kiosk. The volunteers' willingness to come out to help beautify and preserve our local natural resources is an example for all of us, and a great example of why Cherry Hill is a great place to live, work and play. Thank you to CHEB, the Trail Crew and all of our volunteers for their hard work and dedication.
