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.

Mayor, Council look to revitalize Cherry Hill's gateways 
Township Council has taken the first step toward revitalizing several dilapidated sites along Routes 70 and 38, directing the Planning Board on Wednesday to study four separate areas to determine whether they qualify as "areas in need of redevelopment" under New Jersey's redevelopment laws. For years, these areas have been home to low-end motels and vacant industrial buildings, and I believe it's time we take steps to rejuvenate these gateways to Cherry Hill, and transform them into more dynamic places to live and work.

Mayor, Council mark Veterans Day at events around town AristaCare Veterans Day 2014.jpg
While Tuesday was the day our nation officially set aside as Veterans Day, the Cherry Hill area was home to several special events this week aimed at honoring and thanking the men and women of our Armed Forces. I was fortunate, along with the members of Council, to attend ceremonies on Sunday at Cooper River Park and American Legion Post 372 in Cherry Hill, and on Monday at AristaCare on Chapel Avenue. During the County's ceremony at Cooper River Park, our Cherry Hill Councilwoman and Gold Star Mother Melinda Kane was presented with a medal in special recognition of the sacrifice of her son, Jeremy.Legion Veterans Day 2014.jpg The Veterans Day service at the Legion featured a special flag-retirement ceremony using a flag-burning pit built this year by local Eagle Scouts. And the ceremony at AristaCare highlighted the service of our aging veterans, and included remarks for active-duty members of the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines. It was a truly moving and emotional week for all involved, but I could not be prouder to witness such fitting tributes to those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom. On behalf of the entire Cherry Hill community, thank you to all our veterans, past, present and future, for everything you do to protect us, and our way of life. We will never forget your service and sacrifice.

Cherry Hill residents honored for their good work in our community Pober proclamation 11.14.14.jpg
At this week's Township Council meeting, Council and I were honored to recognize two Cherry Hill residents who have made an impact in our world in a very special way. 
The first of these individuals is Jay Pober, a Woodcrest resident who served in the United States Navy from 2003-2011 in the Office of Naval Intelligence. In addition to his selfless service to our nation, Jay currently works for Capital One and helps to recruit fellow veterans into employment opportunities through the "Hiring Our Heroes" program. A former volunteer firefighter and father of two, Jay has spent the majority of his life in service to others - and we were proud to declare a day in his honor this week.ketterer proclamation.jpg
The second resident is 16-year-old Amanda Ketterer, a junior at Cherry Hill East who sets a shining example for her peers. For the last 8 years, Amanda has helped to support the Jane Goodall Institute and the work of famed researcher Jane Goodall through her "Chimpaide Cafe," and to date, has raised more than $15,000. Her efforts have earned Amanda a position in the Institute's National Youth Leadership Council - and in September, she traveled to New York for the United Nations' Peace Day. Amanda is a remarkable young woman who feels her calling in life is to help make our world a better place. She is an inspiration to all and one of our community's brightest young stars. It was a pleasure to meet her and an honor to recognize her efforts!  

Holiday Food Drive collects 30,000 lbs. for the Cherry Hill Food Pantry Rec Food Drive 2014.jpg

JFCS 'Take the Wheel' program helps veterans access needed service Take the Wheel for Briefing.jpg
This Wednesday, I joined with dozens of elected officials and community members to celebrate the launch of the Samost Jewish Family and Children's Services "Take the Wheel" veterans transportation program. Take the Wheel is a transportation service that links volunteer veterans with fellow veterans who need help getting to and from their appointments. This is a wonderful new program for the thousands of veterans in our area, and one that helps address a serious existing need. On the heels of Veterans Day, it's wonderful to see an organization doing more than simply thanking our veterans for their service. Take the Wheel is translating our gratitude into action, and helping our veterans get where they need to go. Congratulations and thanks to JCFS for its work to get this program off the ground! 

Mayor Cahn celebrates Gambino's Italian Eatery on Route 38 Gambino.jpg
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Opening of Gambino's Italian Eatery on Route 38. This is the second eatery for owner Giovanni (John) Gambino, who for years operated Camden's Penn Pizza Palace. Gambino's features pizza and other typical pizzeria fare, as well as several specialty entrees and a warm, friendly atmosphere. The Gambino's staff could not have been more welcoming, and it was a great day to celebrate one of Cherry Hill's newest eateries.

I was fortunate, along with the members of Council, to attend ceremonies on Sunday at Cooper River Park and American Legion Post 372 in Cherry Hill, and on Monday at AristaCare on Chapel Avenue.

Cherry Hill PBA hosts food drive for the Cherry Hill Food Pantry

Throughout the month of November, the Cherry Hill PBA will be collecting non-perishable food items and household goods to support the Cherry Hill Food Pantry. Collection bins are located in the Cherry Hill Municipal Building and inside Police Headquarters, both located at 820 Mercer St. Additionally, a number of our Township Police Officers will also be volunteering their time at the food pantry this month, in support of a great organization that helps hundreds of local families in need each month. Please join me in thanking our officers and the PBA for their support of this very worthwhile cause, especially as we enter the holiday season! For more information, please contact Ed Williams, ewilliams@cherryhillpolice.com, or Chris Wernig, cwernig@cherryhillpolice.com.
