Main Street Maple Shade is undergoing a renaissance to bring back the old town feel of yesteryear. As the large chain stores are closing their mall locations, small towns all across America are being given a second chance. Our Main Street is beginning to see more foot traffic. With the addition of a local Art Gallery and the pending opening of Urban Promise Thrift Shop we expect to see more activity in and out of all of our stores. It’s great to shop where they know your name and your likes.

Annual Water Quality Report

Annual Water Quality Report, water testing performed in 2015.

We are proud to present once again our annual water quality report covering all testing performed between January 1 and December 31, 2015. Most notably, last year marked the 41th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). This rule was created to protect public health by regulating the nation’s drinking water supply. We continue to manage our water system with a mission to deliver the best-quality drinking water. By striving to meet the requirements of the SDWA, we are ensuring a future of healthy, clean drinking water for years to come.

Please let us know if you ever have any questions or concerns about your water.

You are invited to participate in our public meetings and voice your concerns. The township council meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the second and last Thursdays of the month

The Congressional Award

 

Dear friends,

I’m writing to inform you of an exciting opportunity for high school and college students across

South Jersey to get involved in their community and get recognized for their contributions.

The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. The program is non-partisan, voluntary, non-competitive, and is open to all 14 to 23-year-olds. Students may register when they turn 13-and-a half-years old and must complete their activities before their 24th birthday.

Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates as well as Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration.

Students may earn their reward independently or with friends doing something they already enjoy, or by taking on a new challenge. Students work at their own pace. There’s no minimum grade point average requirement necessary.

This opportunity not only helps students make a difference in the community. Most importantly, the program gives students a sense of pride and accomplishment of having made a contribution to society.

One proud participant and recipient of the awards is Andrew Geldreich, one of my constituents. I’m proud of Andrew’s hard work and dedication. I’m also proud to say Andrew serves as an intern at my District Office in Cherry Hill.

Students may learn more about the Congressional Award by clicking here. Interested students may register for the Award by clicking here.

Sincerely,

Donald Norcross

Member of Congress (NJ-01)
