Welcome to Cherry Hill Night set for Oct. 15

Mayor Chuck Cahn and township council invite residents to learn all about what makes Cherry Hill a great place to live, work and play at the second annual “Welcome to Cherry Hill” open house. It will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at the Cherry Hill Public Library.

Residents can mingle with their neighbors and meet the mayor, council members, county officials, and representatives from the Cherry Hill Public Library, Police and Fire Departments.

There will be prizes and giveaways, information on township activities, swim clubs, youth sports, civic associations, churches, and more. The Cherry Hill Police Department will have its popular Kid Card ID kiosk set up in the lower-level conference center.

“By bringing our residents together for a few hours, we hope to break down the boundaries of different neighborhoods and social circles and unite everyone as residents of Cherry Hill, with the heart of our town, the Cherry Hill Library, as the backdrop for the evening’s festivities,” Cahn said. “I hope everyone, particularly those who have recently moved into our community, will stop by, introduce themselves, enjoy some great food and a warm atmosphere, and learn about everything Cherry Hill has to offer.”

As a new addition to this year’s event, visitors will be able to take part in a community planning activity that invites them to share their vision for the township’s future by identifying community assets and areas of concern, and providing their constructive ideas and solutions to address those concerns.

Finally, guests will also enjoy a complimentary “Taste of Cherry Hill,” with delicious offerings from several local eateries, including The Bistro at Cherry Hill, The Capital Grille, Kaminski’s, Java City Coffee, ShopRite, Springdale Farm and Wegmans.

While Welcome to Cherry Hill is geared toward Cherry Hill’s newest residents, all are welcome. The event is free. Registration is preferred, but not required. For more information or to register, go to www.CherryHill-NJ.com, or contact Donna Dovey at (856) 488–7878 or ddovey@chtownship.com.
