Council members celebrate Greek Independence Day 
Greek Independence 2015 (1).jpgYesterday, Council President Dave Fleisher, Councilman Brian Bauerle and Councilwoman Carole Roskoph joined St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church to celebrate Greek Independence Day at Town Hall. Joined by Father Emmanuel Pratsinakis, members of the Parish Council, and students from the Hellenic School, Council President Fleisher presented the school with a special proclamation honoring the holiday, followed by a ceremonial raising of the Greek flag outside of the Municipal Building. Greece will officially celebrate its 194th Independence Day on Wednesday, March 25. Thank you to the St. Thomas community for once again including the Township in this wonderful celebration!

Public Works crews work to combat potholes on local roads Pothole patrol.jpg
Winter's continuous cycle of freezing and thawing has led to a significant increase in the number of potholes affecting local roadways. In response, the Township's Department of Public Works has assigned designated crews to identify and repair potholes on local roads as quickly as possible. However, with 260 miles of municipal roads under Cherry Hill's jurisdiction, residents often serve as our first line of defense in identifying areas that have been particularly hard-hit by the elements. If you spot a pothole, please report it online, 24/7, by clicking here, or by calling Public Works directly, Monday through Friday, at (856) 424-4422. Several area roads are maintained by either Camden County or the New Jersey Department of Transportation, but don't worry: If you report a pothole on a non-Township road, we will relay the information for you. Drive safely, and thank you for helping us to address this seasonal epidemic! Click here to learn more.

Mayor Cahn, Council host Cherry Hill Citizens Cabinet meeting Cit Cab March 2015.jpg
On Tuesday morning, Council members Brian Bauerle and Melinda Kane and members of my administration joined me for the latest meeting of the Cherry Hill Citizens Cabinet. For about 90 minutes, I shared news and other important information with these ambassadors within our community, and answered questions about topics that ranged from potholes, to traffic concerns, to ongoing economic development projects and upcoming events. The Citizens Cabinet and Business Council meet with me every other month, and were created as a way for me and my administration stay in touch with the residents of Cherry Hill. As always, Tuesday's meeting was a lively one, and I want to thank the members for their continued engagement. For more information about either of these groups, contact my office at (856) 488-7878, or e-mail DDovey@chtownship.com. 

Cherry Hill ShopRite employees featured on Cheerios boxes
ShopRite Cheerios unveiling.jpg
Last week, I joined employees at ShopRite of the Garden State Pavilions to celebrate the unveiling of special-edition boxes of Cheerios featuring store employees Mikael Lacey and Charlie Thress. The store is among the winners of this year's ShopRite Partners in Caring Cheerios Contest, which raised $1.27 million to support regional food banks. Lacey and Thress will be featured on 125,000 special-edition cereal boxes over the next several months. The ShopRite Partners in Caring program has provided hope to the hungry in our communities for more than 15 years, and I was proud to celebrate the unveiling of these special boxes, which showcase some of the dedicated store associates who have helped make the program a success.
