As we reported yesterday, there’s now a vacancy on the Parks Committee following Mary Swift’s resignation on July 17, 2019.

Peninsula Township is accepting letters of interest for an immediate opening for a two-year position on the Parks Committee, which meets the second Wednesday of each month.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

Additional meetings and study sessions might be scheduled, as well. Also, applicants must be qualified electors of the township.

The Peninsula Township Parks Committee is composed of seven members that are appointed by the Township Board. Current members include Mike Skurski (chair), Beth Karczewski, Don Atkinson, Pete Dahl, Eric Dreier and Dave Murphy.

While the committee is still in the process of defining their role with the management of the parks, they work with the Township Board and staff for the development and operation of all the township parks.

If you are interested in applying for the open position, submit a letter of interest and/or resume to Township Clerk Becky Chown, [email protected], or by mail to 13235 Center Road, Traverse City, MI 49686, by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
