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'll join us at these events, sign up to receive e-mail updates, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Mayor Cahn, Council to honor the fallen at 11 a.m. Monday, May 25 Memorial Day 2.jpg
While many of us are looking forward to a long weekend and relaxation with family and friends, it is important that we remember the real reason we observe Memorial Day each year: to honor and remember the more than 1.3 million men and women who have given their lives in service to the United States throughout our nation's history. 
This Monday, please join me and the members of Council as we pay tribute to our nation's heroes at the Township's annual Memorial Day ceremony, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Municipal Complex on Mercer St. This year's ceremony will include Keynote Speaker Brig. Gen. Steven Ferrari, Deputy Commanding General - Support, 42nd Infantry Division, Army National Guard, and a a musical tribute to our Armed Forces by the Pine Barons Chorus. A barbecue lunch will also be served. Click here for more information about the ceremony, which is sponsored by American Legion Post 372 and Jewish War Veterans Post 126. 

Town Hall closed Monday for Memorial Day; trash pickup delayed
The Cherry Hill Township Municipal Building will close at 3 p.m. today (Friday) for the Memorial Day weekend. Our offices will reopen for normal business hours on Tuesday, May 26.

Mayor Cahn celebrates Cherry Hill's Green Schools contest winners Green Schools winners 2015.jpg
On Tuesday afternoon, I joined officials from RecycleBank and Cherry Hill Public Schools to celebrate the winners of this year's RecycleBank Green Schools contest. An unprecedented six local schools secured more than $15,000 in grants through the contest - money that will help fund waste-reduction initiatives and other environmental education projects at each of the six schools. Congratulations to all six of our winning schools - Barton, Bret Harte, Cooper and Kilmer elementary schools, Beck Middle School and Cherry Hill High School East - on their winning entries! In addition to the grant money, Beck will also receive 40 cartons of paper from contest sponsor Domtar, as the winning proposal in this year's Art & Sculpture category. Finally, I want to thank the countless Cherry Hill residents who donated their unused RecycleBank points to support these schools and help push them over the top.

CHPD takes impaired-driver program to Cherry Hill East CHPD Drunk Driving Program for Briefing.jpg
This week, the Cherry Hill Police Department's Traffic Safety Unit gave seniors at Cherry Hill High School East a hands-on lesson about the dangers of distracted and impaired driving. As part of the department's Impaired Driver Simulated Program, officers from the CHPD Traffic Safety Unit organized a series of interactive demonstrations meant to show new drivers how texting or driving under the influence of alcohol affects things like decision-making, depth perception and reaction time behind the wheel. Several students were given the chance to drive the department's low-speed simulation vehicle through a coned-off obstacle course, while others took part in activities such as games of skill to test depth perception and coordination. This is just one of many education and outreach initiatives organized by the CHPD throughout the year.
