White Oak's Recreation Board is looking for new members to help with borough activities.
“The rec board is trying to expand itself with programs for younger adults,” White Oak Councilman Kenneth Robb said. “We have programs for senior citizens and we have programs for children.”
He said the eight members who make up the recreation board have been there for numerous years.
“They do a wonderful job and there's just the eight of them,” Robb said. “They are trying to expand the program. They are looking for volunteers who are willing to come onto the rec board and help them plan these programs.”
Some of the activities the board plans include an Easter egg hunt, Halloween parade, Evening with Santa, Family Nights at the Heritage Hill Pool, middle school dances, craft shows, Valentine's dance for adults, adult pickup softball games and Community Day.
“We'd like to be more active with adults,” White Oak Recreation Board chairman George Pambacas said.
He said White Oak residents should sign up if they want to “contribute to White Oak and give back to the community to provide activities for youngsters and adults.”
The White Oak Recreation Board meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. in borough council chambers.
Any White Oak resident interested in becoming a recreation board member should call the borough office at 412-672-9727, or attend the monthly meeting.
