Verona Parks and Recreation Board needs a new member and volunteers for future committees.

Applications to fill a vacancy on the board will be accepted through the end of the month.

Vice chairperson Trish Hredzak-Showalter said she hopes a new member will be appointed in September to fill the unexpired term of Brian Duncan.

Duncan, who had three years remaining on a five-year term, recently resigned to spend more time with his family and the Riverview Athletic Association.

Applicants must be borough residents and at least 18 years old. Letters of interest can be emailed to Janet LoAlbo at or sent to the borough office at 736 E. Railroad Ave.

Experience in grant writing, programs with youth and/or the elderly and a love of the outdoors is preferred, Hredzak-Showalter said.

The recreation board was established last year. Subcommittees will be formed this year to help with event planning and other projects.

Questions about the board and its committees can be emailed to

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
