The Sloan Youth Recreation Ctr, located upstairs at the Community Ctr at 140 Halstead, is open for the season. Hours of operation are Tuesday thru Friday 3:30-7:30pm, Sat 12:00 to 6:00pm. All Village youth residents ages 8 and up are welcome to join; 7 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult and Village ID is required. If you need a Village ID card, please bring a small photo of yourself and two current proofs of Village address (such as utility bills) and we will make it for you at no charge. The Rec Dept is looking for one or two more employees to work at the Youth Center. Applicants must be a Village resident, minimum 16 years of age. Applications are available at Village Hall, 425 Reiman Street. There is an adult workout room upstairs, open the same hours as listed above. There are free weights, inversion table, exercise bikes, treadmill and elliptical machines for your use. You must be 18 years of age to use the equipment and is free for all residents. As Trustee, I want to thank my Youth Recreation employees for their hard work this past summer. They kept the pool running smoothly in its last season and most have transitioned to the Rec Center for the winter. New this year was the Summer Lunch Program which provided free lunches five days a week to all children under the age of 18. This would not have been possible without the efforts of Mary Brucz Cheektowaga-Sloan School District Food Service Manager and her staff. Through her efforts, the NYS Education Department approved this initiative which provided an opportunity for families to enjoy Griffith Park while eating a nutritious meal. We look forward to working collaboratively with the school next summer! Lastly, we are looking for a ping pong table. If anyone knows of one to donate or sell, please contact Village Hall at 897-1560.
