My fellow Supervisors and I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some recent activities and comments.
This January we’ll begin our seventh year with the Junior Supervisor Program. You may remember Rebecca Kinzly, who served last year. This will be our first repeat Junior Supervisor. Rebecca did a great job and we look forward to working with her again. The students from Rustin keep us informed on all the activities at the High School. This program has proven to be rewarding for the students, the residents, and certainly to us on the Board of Supervisors.
Our EAC has been hard at work reestablishing a perimeter trail around Barrett’s Meadow. There has been a permanent parking area added to allow for more convenient access. Although the trails are still in the process of being established, an abundance of wildlife flourishes. I encourage you to stop and take a stroll to enjoy the bevy of flora and fauna the meadow has to offer.
Recently we have made some upgrades to our parking area at Thornbury Park. Because of the popularity of the park and all of the Township events, it was necessary to increase the parking. Our staff did a decent amount of the work ourselves, so we were able to keep the cost down and they did a great job coordinating the entire project. We also made some improvements to the Pavilion as well. Visit the park and see the enhancements for yourself.
If you have an idea for something that we could do at our parks to bring residents together, please share them with us or attend a Park and Recreation meeting. That board does a great job with our events and they always welcome ideas from residents.
If you are interested in serving on one of our boards or commissions please contact me, JP, Sheri, or a member of our staff. Just send a letter or email and let us know what interests you may have. Our Township is blessed with dedicated volunteers, not only the ones who serve on the boards and commissions, but the ones who help at all our events. Join our family of volunteers; it will be a rewarding experience. To stay informed on what’s going on around town, register your email address with Sue Howat. Sue will send you weekly updates and reminders vial email (Sue@thornbury.org).
