Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of events and news happening around town, upcoming events and community activities. I hope you will join us at these community events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.   

Cherry Hill dedicates the Library's Joyce Alexander Walker Multicultural Room Joyce Walker Dedication 1.jpg
Last Saturday, about 100 members of the Cherry Hill community came together to honor the late Joyce Alexander Walker, our beloved friend and former Councilwoman who passed away last December, and to dedicate the Cherry Hill Public Library's Multicultural Room in her memory. Joyce, who served on the governing body from 1997-2005, was Cherry Hill's first African-American Council member, and a truly selfless community servant. I was proud to stand alongside Joyce's husband Felton, her family, and friends including former Mayor Susan Bass Levin, former Councilman Dr. Stephen Barbell, Council President Dave Fleisher, and members of the Cherry Hill African-American Civic Association, to officially rename the Joyce Alexander Walker Multicultural Room. It is a fitting tribute to a wonderful woman who truly made Cherry Hill a better place to live, and whom we deeply miss. Click here to read more.

Mayor, Council celebrate accessibility upgrades at Barclay Farmstead Barclay ADA for Briefing.jpg
On Sunday afternoon, Council and I joined the Friends of Barclay Farmstead to celebrate recent upgrades to historic Barclay Farmstead that have made the 19th-century Quaker farmhouse more accessible to residents of all abilities. We proudly unveiled a new, handicap-accessible walkway that open the house's front entrance to those with mobility issues, and new virtual tours that have opened up the house's second floor - and the entire property - to all visitors. The virtual tour was very generously designed and donated by HAAG 3D Forensics in Mount Laurel, and can be viewed on special laptop computers located on the Farmhouse's first floor. These exciting upgrades will allow a greater number of residents than ever before to experience our community's living history - and bring us closer to our ultimate goal of making all our events and activities inclusive of all residents. For more information on events and activites at Barclay Farmstead, call (856) 795-6225, or email info@barclayfarmstead.org. Be sure to follow @HistoricBarclay on Twitter, and the Barclay Farmstead Museum on Facebook for information on events and activities throughout the year.

In a fit of inspiration, JB believes they can find a cricket bowler in India, and teach him to be a baseball pitcher. To pay for the scheme, businessman Chang creates a reality show titled "Million Dollar Arm" to find fresh talent. At first the going is rough, but they find a pair of promising prospects. The duo travel to the U.S. where they’re tutored by a baseball coach. The two are given a tryout in front of scouts from pro teams, as well as global media. (Rated PG; 124 minutes; 2014)
