Rec Center HoursTBD
From Eric Czubaj, Trustee, Youth Recreation DirectorAfter a busy, hot summer the Splash Pad officially closed for the season on August 30th. In conjunction with the Cheektowaga-Sloan School District, 1812 free lunches and 1812 packaged breakfasts were served throughout July and August. This has been such a successful endeavor for our community and so beneficial for our youth. A special thank-you to Mary Brucz, Cafeteria Manager, for her initiative in recognizing the need in our district and working with NYS Education to fund the feeding program. Working with Erie County Legislator Timothy Meyers, the Village obtained a grant of $5,000 towards the construction of a new shelter in Griffith Park. It is a beautiful addition and will be available next year for residents to rent and use by the Sloan Arts Council for its Concert in Griffith Park series. The Board is reviewing the protocols of opening the Youth Recreation Center this fall, due to COVID19 requirements. Please check the website over the next several weeks for any updates, including the Halloween event on October 31st.
