Rec Commission begins planning Summit Hill festival
Tonight, the Summit Hill Recreation Commission will begin its planning of the annual Stay-At-Home Festival, held each Memorial Day weekend at the Ginder Field.
Monica A. Marshall, an officer with the commission, said the site of the meeting was changed to the borough's new Community Center, which is adjacent to the fire company along West Ludlow Street. The meeting originally was scheduled for the Municipal Building.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and is open to anyone interested in serving on the commission or assisting with the festival.
Also to be discussed will be the borough's Easter on the Hill event.
Earlier this year, the commission was in jeopardy with only two active members on the roster. Six more members were appointed this month by Summit Hill Borough Council.
They are Suzanne Milkowich, who was re-appointed; Russell "Rusty" Marshall, Walter "Bud" Lausterer, Delores "Jodi" McAndrew, Joseph Pelcheck Jr., and Margaret Pelcheck.
Marshall noted that a meeting scheduled tomorrow by the Community Center Committee, which is under the auspices of the Recreation Commission, has been changed to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24 at the Community Center. The committee is comprised of members from the Recreation Commission, Summit Hill Fire Department, and Summit Hill Community Improvement Organization.
The purpose of this committee will be to organize and schedule events at the new Community Center. Marshall will be in charge of the meeting.
