Park, a student at Brookville Area High School who will soon begin her senior year, is extremely active in school.

She is the secretary for the BAHS Class of 2018 and a member of the National Honor Society. She’s a member of the school’s band and choir and also participates in various musicals.

In addition, she is the president of the school’s Ecology Club.

Park was the alternate junior council representative a year ago.

Additionally, Park serves as the student representative for the Brookville Area School District Board.

Dalynn is the daughter of Matt and Christa Park.

Laurel Festival Reorganizing

Council also heard from Dick Boozer of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He is spearheading the effort to reorganize the Laurel Festival.

Boozer said Western Pa. Laurel Festival board chairperson Joyce Toven recently resigned and a steering committee has met to talk about plans for 2018.

Toven suffered a major heart attack at the end of May and nearly died before undergoing quadruple bypass surgery and a heart valve replacement.

Boozer reported that both the Brookville and Pine Creek Volunteer Fire Departments have been working together with the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

Some of the ideas for what Boozer said will be a week-long festival include a home run derby, fishing derby, soap box derby, dunking booth, battle of barrel firefighter’s competition, parade, bands, lawn mower races, lumber jack festival, chainsaw carving, wing night, scavenger hunt, senior night, veteran’s appreciation day and others.

The committee will meet again at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Brookville Fire Hall.

Other Business

In other business, council approved a bid from HRI to finish paving in the borough. Its bid was $48,690 and will allow for paving four streets and an alley.

Council also approved the Second Annual Tour de Brookville bike race, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, October 14.

Council will meet again at 7 p.m., Tuesday, September 5.
