Weekly Column: Celebrating Cherry Hill's Community Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community, lending their time and skills for the benefit of others. As we finish Volunteer Awareness Month, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank our many volunteers for their hard work and dedication to our community. At the same time, I want to invite our residents that are not already involved to participate in and take advantage of the many great volunteer opportunities and make a difference in our town.

Volunteering in Cherry Hill can be an extremely rewarding and enjoyable experience for both the volunteers and the Township as a whole. Our volunteers bring their specialized skills and knowledge, along with new ideas and fresh perspectives, to enhance existing programs and events. The Township has numerous boards, commissions, and advisory committees that allow citizens to utilize their interests and experiences to participate directly in the Township’s daily business.

Working with the Cherry Hill Arts Board (CHAB), volunteers spotlight and present the work of dedicated artists and performers of all ages, while bringing quality arts programming to Cherry Hill residents. The board seeks to offer opportunities for residents of Cherry Hill to experience the arts and to encourage their participation in exhibitions and performances.

Through the work of its volunteers, Cherry Hill Environmental Advisory Committee (CHEAC) protects and improves the natural environment for all Cherry Hill residents by offering input on issues impacting our environment, overseeing the Township’s many great trails, and providing education and outreach to our residents. The Senior Citizen Advisory Board and its volunteers meet regularly and are dedicated to promoting the welfare of our seniors throughout Cherry Hill. Volunteer board members plan the Senior Services open house held in the Fall and promote senior events being held throughout the Township.

Volunteers interested in preserving the past can participate in the Cherry Hill Historical Commission, which is dedicated to preserving the history of our wonderful Township. This volunteer Commission collects, preserves, and maintains archives and memorabilia and assists in identifying historical resources in Cherry Hill. The Commission also sponsors an annual lecture series through the Department of Parks, Recreation & Community Services. Along the same lines, the Township’s Planning, Zoning and Rent Review Boards oversee, approve and regulate development throughout our community.

The Cherry Hill Alliance on Alcohol and Drug Abuse is comprised of municipal officials, educators, police officers, and community members pooling their expertise. They sponsor educational programs, drug free activities, community awareness, and substance prevention programs.
This is just a sample of the boards and commissions that provide chances to get involved in our town. In addition to our Township volunteer opportunities, the Township also partners with certain outside organizations that seek volunteers to lend their time and efforts for the benefit of others. On a regular basis, the Township coordinates with the Friends of the Library, Friends of Barclay Farmstead and Sustainable Cherry Hill to further initiatives and present collaborative programming such as the Greening Your Bottom Line business breakfast and the Township’s Earth Festival.
Whether it is our Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts participating in volunteer cleanups, or members of the Horticulture Society planting flowers, or volunteers cleaning trails at Croft Farms, people of all ages are involved in making our community better. We have volunteers who work with local hospitals, civic associations, athletic leagues and community organizations throughout town making an impact on the daily lives of our residents.

I encourage everyone to get more involved in our community, to meet your neighbors and share your knowledge. I look forward to working with and continuing to celebrate our volunteers at future events around Cherry Hill. If you would like to get involved, visit our website and look for boards and commissions. Whatever you do to make a difference in the lives of our residents, from all of us at Town Hall, thank you!
