Cherry Hill Township
Welcome to the latest installment of the Mayor's Weekly Briefing, which contains a recap of Township news, special events and community activities. I hope you'll join us at these events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Mayor Cahn visits with Wexford, Church Road civic associations Church Road Civic 6-5-15
This week, members of Council and I visited with the Wexford and Church Road Civic Associations at their respective meetings to answer questions, discuss neighborhood concerns, and update residents on news and events from Town Hall, as well as various initiatives my administration and I have undertaken throughout the last three years. Both were lively, well-attended events, and it was a pleasure to meet with so many enthusiastic and engaged residents. I want to thank each organization for inviting us to meet with them; I look forward to sitting down with other groups in Cherry Hill in the weeks and months to come! Remember, my door is always open, and I welcome your questions and feedback. To reach me or a member of my staff, call us at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail me directly at MayorCahn@chtownship.com.

Cherry Hill honors fallen Marine at annual memorial run Jeremy Kane Run 2015
Hundreds of residents from across South Jersey came out last Sunday morning for the 6th annual Jeremy Kane Memorial Run at Cherry Hill High School East. Each year, the run honors Lance Cpl. Kane, the son of Cherry Hill Councilwoman Melinda Kane, who was a Marine Reservist and Cherry Hill resident enrolled at Rutgers-Camden when he was killed in live action in Afghanistan on Jan. 23, 2010. For the last six years, the South Jersey community has gathered each spring for a 5K run/walk to honor Jeremy’s service and sacrifice, and raise funds that will benefit other student veterans at Rutgers. To date, the run has raised more than $83,000 in scholarship money for those veterans, and has become a very fitting tribute to one of our community’s heroes.

Barclay Herb Garden dedication honors longtime Barclay gardeners Barclay Garden Dedication 6-5-15
On Thursday evening, I joined the members of the Barclay Garden Club to dedicate Barclay Farmstead’s educational herb garden in honor of two Cherry Hill residents and longtime gardeners who have lovingly maintained the plot for decades. Helen Zmijewski and Jeannette Zerbe have served as Herb Garden Committee Leaders and on the Friends of Barclay Farmstead Board of Directors for a number of years. Under their care and guidance, the herb garden has become a valuable teaching tool as part of the award-winning Barclay School Tour program open to Cherry Hill fifth graders. Every spring, roughly 50 varieties of herbs are grown in the garden – and they provide a hands-on lesson in our living history to hundreds of Cherry Hill school students. Cherry Hill Township deeply appreciates every minute that Helen and Jeannette have devoted to the care of this space, and it was my honor to dedicate the garden in their honor.

Mayor Cahn speaks to the Cherry Hill Chamber of Commerce Chamber Speech 6-5-15
On Tuesday afternoon, I joined the Cherry Hill Chamber of Commerce for an annual "State of the Township" update during a special luncheon at Caffe Aldo Lamberti on Route 70. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet and interact with local business leaders, and to discuss what's happening in Cherry Hill. We covered topics ranging from the municipal budget, to recent economic development news, to road improvements and much more. Thank you to the Cherry Hill Chamber and the Camden County Regional Chamber of Commerce for organizing the event, and thank you to Lamberti's for hosting! 

Councilwoman Kane marks 80th N.J. American Legion statewide service Locustwood Melinda Kane 6-5-15
Last weekend, Councilwoman Melinda Kane joined American Legion Post 372 and members of the New Jersey American Legion for the organization's 80th annual Statewide Memorial Service at Locustwood Cemetery. The event has been an annual tradition since shortly after Locustwood Cemetery deeded 400 free grave sites to the Legion, for use by Legionnaires and their spouses. As part of the transfer of grave sites, the Legion agreed to build a memorial in the cemetery, and to host an annual service on the first Sunday after Memorial Day. Each year, the Township is honored to join with the American Legion, S.A.L. Officers, Auxiliary Officers, Gold Star families and others to pay tribute to all those interred in Locustwood who have served our nation.

Cherry Hill Police, Fire hold annual mock crash at Cherry Hill West Mock Crash 2015
This week, the Cherry Hill Police and Fire Departments took part in Cherry Hill West’s “Operation Prom: Mock Crash,” giving students a realistic look at what can happen when driving under the influence.

One student is killed, the driver is arrested, and the two backseat passengers need to be extricated by the Fire Department. The presentation includes a discussion of the costs of the decision, both emotionally and financially, that affect the students’ families, friends, victims and community at large.
