On May 18, after receiving a request letter from Christine Brant, 106 Dyers Stone Drive, Eighty Four, the Nottingham Township Board of Supervisors formally approved her appointment to the Nottingham Township Recreation Board. Brandt had been serving as an alternate member. She will complete the remainder of a term ending January, 2018.
Brant is among a number of individuals to have demonstrated or achieved notability, as determined by the editors of Notable Today, a prestigious community service recognition website. Recognition on a 'Notables' list highlights individuals who have become worthy of attention or notice in their local communities though either "career success, demonstration of a high level of personal integrity, worthwhile volunteer contributions or other considerations."
The Nottingham Township Recreation Board is comprised of eight other members besides Brandt: Chairman Ed Nemec; Vice Chairman Dave Resanovich; Corresponding Secretary Mary Taylor Jubic; Chris Winter-Ramsey; David Zanardelli; William Fogle; Luann Carnahan; and Mike Taylor (Alternate).
The Recreation Board is sponsoring their Annual Car Show on Saturday, June 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Nottingham Township Municipal Complex, 909 Sugar Run Road. All cars and motorcycles are welcome to display. There is a donation requested for entries. There will be trophies and prizes awarded, an on-site DJ, a 50/50 raffle as well as food and beverages. Also, there will be a special "Touch a Truck" event held for children.
In other business, the Nottingham Board of Supervisors:
• Approved a home occupation/conditional use application for Regina Shuback, 238 Ginger Hill Road. She will operate a small beauty salon in her home, and she told the board she has been a beautician for 28 years.
• Approved the hiring of college student Nick Maciejewski as a part-time temporary unskilled laborer for the summer months at a rate of $10 per hour. Supervisor/Public Works Director Doug King said that the young man was having a difficult time finding a job for the summer. He will mow grass and work at the municipal complex.
• Received notification from Tri-County Engineering, LLC, Hunker, PA, for a permit indicating their intent to construct a minor road crossing for the purpose of natural gas exploration, processing and transmission in the township.
