From Trustee Eric Czubaj
Our third summer with the Splash Pad has drawn to a close and has again been enjoyed by so many of our youth- both Sloan families and from the surrounding community. As the Town of Cheektowaga only operated one of its three pools, we experienced a rise in usage by non-residents. Based on this expected increase, the Board made the decision in June to not issue annual passes and limit the number of non-resident day-use passes, which allowed unrestricted access for Sloan youth while generating revenue for the Village. Our new Recreation Supervisor, Michele, continued the Saturday craft events while the free breakfast/lunch program, provided in conjunction with the Cheektowaga Sloan school district, served over 1500 free meals in July and August to children in our community. The Sloan Arts Council, after a year hiatus, provided its 19th Annual Concert Series in the Park. The summer went out with a flourish on August 19th as we honored our Veterans and celebrated the 125th Anniversary of the Village of Sloan. The event was organized by my fellow Trustee, Paula Bruscani, and resident Greg Szarpa. They led a committee who organized a large group of volunteers and vendors; providing Veterans services, food, music, entertainment and fireworks. Thank you to everyone who made this event such a huge success!
