“As we enter the holiday season, Cherry Hill Township offers a variety of events for residents of all ages and faiths. In particular, our annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony is a great opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate the start of Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa,” Cahn said. “Local choirs and musicians will bring in the joyous sounds of the season and we will celebrate all we have to be thankful for.”
