Students learn about the water cycle; recycling in a fun way
Evesham Township’s Clean Communities Program, a division of the Department of Public Works, recently educated elementary school students on the topics of litter abatement and recycling with a performance by The Grand Falloons.
The Grand Falloons are experienced entertainers who provide educational programs on an elementary school level that correspond with Evesham schools earth science curriculum. The program is fast paced, interesting, funny and entertaining, with skits, magic and music. It also covers important topics including limited resources, the water cycle, and landfill capacity, in addition to litter abatement and recycling.
“The Grand Falloons’ program exceeded my expectations,” Debbie Pease, Evesham’s Clean Communities Coordinator said. “Important information was presented in a manner that the children could relate to, and in a fun way that makes it memorable to them.”
The program was sponsored by both Burlington County and Evesham’s Clean Communities programs. Education is an important goal of the statewide program. There is a big advantage to educating our young children as it instills practical lifelong lessons; they are our future.
“We all need to realize that our landfills will run out of space; we need to find ways to keep our waterways clean and free of trash and litter, and understand that recycling saves our limited natural resources,” Pease said.
Public Works is responsible for safe travel along 320 lane miles of roads throughout Evesham.

Mayor Randy Brown: we do not stand for drunk driving
Each year, countless lives are lost due to the poor-decision making of reckless drivers. We do not stand for such behavior in Evesham Township.
Driving drunk doesn’t just make you a danger to yourself, but the entire community.
This community has already lost too many young lives since 2007, when I became mayor. There’s no need to lose another life.
With that in mind, the Evesham Township Police Department will be doubling its efforts to curb drinking and driving with more DUI checkpoints throughout the township, through grants.
Our officers will be placed in undisclosed locations to ensure drunk drivers are removed from roadways.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2010, 10,228 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly 31 percent of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.
As they rise across the county, they have dropped in Evesham Township.
Last year, Evesham had zero vehicular deaths, according to Police Chief Christopher Chew, and we intend to keep it that way.
With the use of the Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS), our police department has been able to track and curb crime in a revolutionary way.
According to the department’s website, DDACTS integrates location-based crime and traffic data to establish effective and efficient methods for deploying law enforcement and other resources.
The goal of DDACTS is to reduce the number of crimes, crashes, and traffic violations in Evesham Township.
This includes drunk driving.
This issue not only affects the community, as alcohol abuse has personally affected me and my family.
My grandfather was an alcoholic. He died at a young age and I saw how the continual abuse of alcohol had a profane effect on his life.
We wish to promote safety and having a clear mind to make good choices.
I recently attended D.A.R.E. graduations at four elementary schools, where our children had finished a course on learning the dangers of alcohol and drugs. This includes what happens when adults choose to drink and drive.
We must practice what we preach and set a good example for our youth so they can make good choices as well.
Residents, please make the best decisions while consuming alcohol. If you cannot drive, call a cab, a friend or family member. Never get behind the wheel after drinking.
Stay safe, Evesham Township.
Mayor Randy Brown
Evesham Township Police Department to increase DUI checkpoints
Chief Christopher Chew and the Evesham Police Department recently announced the intention to use the full effects of roadside checkpoints these winter/spring seasons in the enforcement of intoxicated and impaired drivers.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is a serious violation of state law and is taken very seriously by the entire Evesham Police Department.
Police officers from this agency will utilize appropriate traffic control devices to facilitate roadside checks in accordance with departmental policy and law.
Motorists traveling on the selected roadways will be asked to slow down and even stop during the course of a checkpoint. Police will make every effort to limit traffic delays. Motorists are asked to be patient and cooperate with such proactive measures in a “police-public partnership” on making our roadways safer for everyone. Our goal is to prevent motorists from driving while intoxicated.
Drunk Driving Enforcement Funds (DDEF) collected by the court system will be used to fund these DWI enforcement efforts.
The aforementioned checkpoints may be operational during the period of Feb. 26 to April 1. The exact locations, dates, and times will not be revealed at this time. However, potential areas of operation will be major roadways will be state, county and municipal thoroughfares that pass through the city.
More specifically, roadways such as Route 73, Route 70, Maple Avenue, Greentree Road, Evesboro-Medford Road, and/or Marlton Parkway will be utilized. All checkpoints will be highly visible at the time of execution.
A letter of request and justification specifically indicating the exact locations, dates, and times will be on file with the Chief of Police.
Concerned citizens are always encouraged to report erratic and/or DWI driving to local authorities.
