This week, I traveled to Atlantic City to accept Cherry Hill's award a a Sustainability Champion for 2014, one of the biggest awards given to towns every year by Sustainable Jersey. The Sustainable Champion Award recognizes the municipalities that have scored the most points in the Sustainable Jersey certification program for the year, in each of three population categories. With 410 points, Cherry Hill was the top scorer among towns with a population of 40,000 or more. This award reflects Cherry Hill's commitment to build a greener and more sustainable future - and is a tremendous accomplishment not just for the Township, but for our schools, businesses, community organizations and, of course, our residents.

I’m pleased to share news that we received this week from Joe Zanghi, who for more than 40 years has helped to cultivate the beautiful 2-mile stretch of Cherry Blossoms along Chapel Avenue.

The Cherry Blossoms were selected from more than 350 entries, and will be featured by the Horticultural Society in an upcoming publication.
