Cherry Hill receives $164K grant for recycling efforts Recycling Truck.png
This week, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection announced that Cherry Hill has been awarded a $164,279 grant for our community-wide recycling efforts. The grant, which was based on our town’s recycling tonnage for 2012, is the 10th-highest in New Jersey and the largest award given in the Camden-Burlington-Gloucester region. We’re one of just two towns in all of South Jersey to place in the Top 10 in the state. This is wonderful news for our entire community – because it reflects the tremendous efforts of both our residents and our commercial entities. Recycling helps the environment and saves taxpayer dollars, and now it’s helping to generate revenue for Cherry Hill, as well. On the heels of our recent designation as a “Sustainability Champion” for 2014, this announcement reaffirms that all of our community’s stakeholders are committed to building a greener, cleaner future.

Mayor Cahn honors Resurrection School's longtime secretary Mrs Naddeo Day.jpg
On Friday morning, with Councilwoman Susan Shin Angulo and I visited Resurrection Catholic School to help honor Mrs. Patricia Naddeo, who is preparing to retire after 33 years of service to the school. Mrs. Naddeo began working in the Learning Center at Resurrection (then known as St. Peter Celestine School) in 1981, and eventually moved into the Main Office, where she works today. For more than 3 decades, she has been a constant presence in the school, helping to welcome new pastors, principals, teachers, students and parents over the years – including a number of students who have grown up and rejoined the community as parents themselves! Mrs. Naddeo knows the answer to almost any question, and has played a key role in educating generations of Cherry Hill children. I was proud to pay tribute to her years of service, presenting a special proclamation declaring Dec. 19 as “Patricia Naddeo Day” in the Township of Cherry Hill. Please join me in thanking Mrs. Naddeo for her service to our school children, and in wishing her all the best as she begins a new chapter in life!

The Cherry Hill Police PBA #176 visited the Cherry Hill Food Pantry last Sunday morning to deliver a donation of more than $2,000 and 70 bags of nonperishable food items that will help make this holiday season a little brighter for needy families in our community. The food collected filled the police van used to transport the donations to the Food Pantry, and will serve an untold number of families, all from Cherry Hil
PBA Food Drop 2.jpgl. The collection drive was a tremendous undertak
ing, but underscores our police officers’ commitment to serving our community – and it demonstrates exactly why I say that Cherry Hill’s Police Department is one of the best in New Jersey. Please join me in thanking
 all those who donated to this year’s collection drive, and commending our Cherry Hill Police and the PBA for helping to make Cherry Hill a happier, brighter place to live this holiday season.
