Recreation Department

From Eric Czubaj, Trustee, Youth Recreation Director

Last week, we held interviews for our seasonal, recreation attendants for employment at the Griffith Park Splashpad this summer. I want to welcome back Michele, Mackenzie, Carissa, Jenna and Aspen. Congratulations to our new hires Angelo, Joseph, Jada, Evannie, and Catherine. Our Sloan Fire Chief Alan Wieberg and 2nd Assistant Chief Paul Zogaria will be training the department in both CPR and First Aid. Griffith Park Splashpad is scheduled to open on Monday, June 27th. Hours of operation will be 11:30am to 7:00pm, Monday through Saturday. Sunday hours will be 11:30am to 4:30pm. Village ID cards will be issued at the park shelter when open. Two current forms of residency will be required (Driver’s license, utility bill, report card etc.) and a small 1”x1” picture of each child must be provided. There is no cost for ID cards and they will be valid for two years. Through the Ralph Wilson Foundation, Victory Sports has provided free sports equipment in Griffith Park. The bin is already in place and is available for everyone’s use. Our partnership with the Cheektowaga-Sloan School District to provide nutritious lunches to the community youth will begin on July 5th and conclude on August 12th. Any person under the age of 18, regardless of residency, is eligible for a free lunch but it must be consumed on-site. We are continuing to accept orders for Memorial Walkway engraved bricks, which will be placed along a new concrete path in Griffith Park. Order forms can be found on Page 4 of the Summer edition of The Sloan Connection or print here
