Summit Hill plans anniversary
A double celebration is planned in Summit Hill next year.
The borough will noted the 100th anniversary of Ludlow Park and the 125th anniversary of the borough.
Last night, the Summit Hill Historical Society was granted permission to place pavers in Ludlow Park in the area of the pathways at the Civil War monument.
MaryAnn Szczecina, secretary of the Historical Society, said in a letter to the council that the group wants to enhance the beauty of Ludlow Park for the anniversary.
She added that besides the pavers, "We would also like to install concrete pads for the cement tables and benches, as well as repair them."
Szczecina said a meeting regarding the dual celebrations will be held at the Summit Hill Historical Museum at 7 p.m. on Aug. 21. She asked that the council have a representative attend the meeting.
Council member Bill O'Gurek said he will represent the borough at the meeting.
Ludlow Park is located along Ludlow Street across from the Summit Hill Fire Department.
Besides a Civil War monument, there also is a coal monument noting the discovery of coal in the borough in 1791.
In other matters, Mayor Paul McArdle announced that the next Crime Watch meeting in the borough will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 26, in the borough hall.
He said the Crime Watch meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month.
Anyone interested in participating in Crime Watch is urged to attend, he said.
