Summit Hill community center mgr. says she'll keep serving
She hasn't officially been given the title of Community Center Manager in Summit Hill, but her duties dictate that this is what Monica Marshall is.
Since the Community Center opened, she has been the volunteer who has booked events, helped the borough council create rules for usage, and even has been cleaning the facility - all without financial reimbursement.
Two months ago, she tendered her resignation to council but agreed to continue the duties until a replacement is found.
No new volunteer for the duties has come forward.
Marshall told the borough council, "It's been 60 days since I decided to step aside," then gave them an offer they couldn't refuse.
She said she will operate the center for a small fee of $25 per month. This includes maintaining it and cleaning it.
The council voted unanimously to take her up on the offer.
It was noted that the center, located next to the Diligence Fire Company along West Ludlow Street, is booked every weekend through the end of October.
Marshall is also chairman of the Summit Hill Recreation Commission. This, too, is a volunteer position.
She informed the borough council that new rides have arrived for the Ginder Playground, but haven't been installed yet.
She said they are presently in storage and that a local company has offered to donate equipment to help with the installation.
In other recreation news, she said Kid's Weekend will be held at the Ginder Field from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27.
The council accepted the resignation of Heather Schleicher from the Recreation Commission.
There were four new appointments to the commission.
Jennilee Kosciolek, who will serve as treasurer, was appointed to a term which expires Dec. 31, 2012.
Appointed to terms which expire Dec. 31 of this year are Barry Walck, Jamie Shelton, and Dean Founds Jr.
