On Wednesday night, the members of Council and I welcomed more than 100 new and newer Cherry Hill residents to our second annual Welcome to Cherry Hill open house and reception, at the Cherry Hill Public Library. Over the course of two hours, guests mingled with myself and the members of Council, county and state representatives, various Township Departments, and representatives from a wide array of community organizations and resources. I'd like to thank all who attended for making our event a tremendous success - with special thanks to the vendors who supported this year's event, including our "Taste of Cherry Hill" participants: The Bistro at Cherry Hill, The Capital Grille, Java City Coffee, Kaminski's, ShopRite, Springdale Farms, and Wegmans.

Leaf collection begins Monday; free leaf bags now available Leaf Collection 2014.jpg
Curbside leaf collection begins next week in neighborhoods across Cherry Hill, an effort that will yield more than 90,000 cubic yards of leaves over the next eight weeks. To help expedite the leaf-collection process and make it more convenient for residents, the Township will once again offer free, 30-gallon leaf bags to all our residents. Leaf bags can be picked up in the Municipal Clerk’s Office (Room 107) at Town Hall, or at the Department of Public Works, 1 Perina Blvd. Bagged leaves can be placed at the curb on your scheduled trash collection day, giving you more flexibility as to when leaves can be cleaned up. If you opt to rake leaves to the curb, click here to find the scheduled collection date for your neighborhood. Dates will be posted in each neighborhood approximately a week in advance.

Mayor, Council honor resident Ted Kail for his volunteer work Ted Kail Proc.jpg
During Tuesday night's Township Council meeting, the members of Council and I had the pleasure of honoring a wonderful Township resident and a longtime volunteer, Ted Kail. Ted, son of our Ombudsman for the Disabled, Jill Kail, has grown up surrounded by Township programs and events, and since childhood, has donated his time to help our programs thrive. In recent years, he's been a huge supporter of our Morning Fun summer camp program, and along with Jill, has taken the lead in organizing our Teen Scene and Out on the Town programs for special needs teens and adults. At just 24 years of age, Teddy has already done so much to make Cherry Hill a better, stronger and more inclusive place to live, and we were proud to recognize his work. Congratulations, Ted!

Mayor's Wellness, Cherry Hill Schools come together for Walk with the Mayor
I would like to extend special thanks to Cherry Hill Schools Superintendent Dr. Maureen Reusche and School Board President Kathy Judge for joining us on Friday morning for a special Walk with the Mayor at Cherry Hill Mall. More than a dozen residents came out and took the 2-mile walk with us around the inside of the Mall, during the first of two Walk with the Mayor events we’ll host this year. It was a beautiful, brisk fall morning – and the Walk was a perfect way to start the day! Walk with the Mayor is sponsored by the Cherry Hill Mayor’s Wellness Campaign.
