Page 8 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • March 25, 2009 Glen Rock Borough offers summer camp, commuter bus by John Koster The Glen Rock Borough Council will sponsor two bargains for residents this year: a commuter bus service that takes passengers from their own corners to the train for $75 a year, and a summer camp program that gives kids seven weeks of recreation and fun for $75 for the summer. Introduced recently and scheduled for public hearing and probable adoption on March 25, the ordinance entitled “fees” allows Glen Rock youngsters to take part in the seven-week program at Wilde Park and the municipal pool facility for $75 per child, or $175 maximum for members of the same family. The program, intended for children of elementary school age, features the availability of the Glen Rock municipal pool complex, with refurbished facilities that have earned the pool many favorable comments. Glen Rock’s commuter shuttle also offers a $75 bargain: one year of rides to the main bus stop and the railroad station for residents who walk to the route used by the bus. Paul Herrlett, who has run the commuter bus since its inception, said the service has 80 paying commuters who take the bus to the train or the main bus line on a regular basis. During off hours, the bus is used to take senior citizens and handicapped residents to medical appointments and to senior centers. Donated to Glen Rock by New Jersey Transit when Richard Hahn was mayor and Bertrand Kendall was borough administrator, the bus came with a financial package that subsidized the first three years of operation. The popularity with seniors convinced the council to retain the bus service when the financial package ended, and enough commuters were willing to pay the annual fee to rate the bus as a success in attempts to take pressure off local roads and parking. School Theatre Festival a hit The Glen Rock High School Spring Theatre Festival ‘09 was performed, recently. Productions at the festival are student written, acted, and directed. Twelve different plays were staged under the direction of Mr. Kevern Cameron, Theatre Company advisor and English/ Drama teacher at Glen Rock High School.Top picture: Futuristic players in ‘The Center’ Dan Flaherty, Hayley Rivlin and Abby Beerman.
