Lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and current emergency workers were honred in a special ceremony Sunday.
Cinnaminson's 9/11 ceremony was held in Wood Park Sunday morning, honoring those lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and the current emergency workers here in Cinnaminson.

Cinnaminson resident Scott Lunn organizes the yearly event to honor those lost and those who continue to serve.
For the sixth year in a row, Cinnaminson resident Scott Lunn is inviting the community to a special 9/11 ceremony this weekend at Wood Park.

Republican candidates could run unopposed this November.
The deadline for those to file as independents in this year's municipal race has passed and according to the Burlington County Clerk's office, no one in Cinnaminson threw their hats in the ring. Last year, three independent candidates—Ken Gertie, Steve Fowles and Scott Lunn—ran against Republican incumbents Anthony Minniti and Ben Young. The incumbents retained their seats.

This Tuesday, you won’t see any Democrats names on the primary ballot running for Cinnaminson Township Committee this year. And if there’s no write-in campaign waged, there won’t be any on the ballot for the general election in November. After the primary, the chair and vice chair—Jim Bernard and Bill O’Connor, respectively—of the township’s Democratic party are stepping down. And O’Connor said he hasn’t even heard of a write-in campaign, something he has been involved in past years. “Somebody would have sent me an email,” said O’Connor. That email would have come from a township Democrat asking other party members to write in one or more names at the primary, he said. If a certain number of names were written in, they would be running in …
