Community Day could make return to South Fayette
South Fayette is likely to revive its Community Day after a 10-year hiatus.
The township is seeking volunteers for an organizing committee, Parks and Recreation Director Paula Simmons said.
“We need a variety of people with different ideas that will provide insight on a range of areas to make Community Day fun for all,” Simmons said.
The committee would be responsible for fundraising, promotion, securing vendors and arranging activities and entertainment.
Community Development Director Andrea Iglar said identity is important in South Fayette — a township with eight ZIP codes within its borders but no central business district.
“A business could think it's in Bridgeville, because the address says Bridgeville, but they're really located in South Fayette, or people could live in McDonald and not realize they live in South Fayette. ... It's kind of confusing,” Iglar said.
Neither Simmons nor Iglar knew why Community Day hasn't been held in a decade, but Iglar said its return is a welcome one.
“You can get a sense of who all is part of our community,” she said.
The Parks and Recreation Board asks that people interested in volunteering submit applications by Jan. 20.
Membership applications and guidelines are available at www.SouthFayettePA.com/CommunityDay.
The committee's first meeting could be by the end of January.
