Activities planned at Chestnuthill parks

On Tuesday night Chestnuthill Supervisors received some positive news about the township returning to what was once normal.

The park has been pretty busy the past few weeks, according to Bernie Kozen, the parks and recreation director.

“We had 23 dogs and about 70 people at the dog training session. It was so well-accepted I’m going to do it again very shortly,” he said.

A craft fair is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 17, and we have over 30 vendors signed up for the craft fair, Kozen said.

Other events on the schedule are a West End Regional Park cleanup starting at 8:30 a.m. April 24 and a Red Cross blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 26.

“There is a change in the annual 5K this year. It will be on May 30. We moved it from the fall, when we usually have it, to the spring,” he said.

Kozen was pleased to announce the StoryWalks would begin this Saturday again at the Regional Park and the Chestnuthill Park.

“We have a partnership with the library, and they are going to set up the pictures around the park trail, and hopefully, we will get enough kids walking around and reading the book as they walk the trail,” he said.

On one final note, Kozen reported the Fleetwood Scholarship has only two applicants. If anyone knows a high school senior, please encourage them to apply for the $2,000 scholarship.
