As a resident of Summit for over 10 years, and having coached youth sports during that time, joining the Summit PAL was an opportunity to give back to the community and to work alongside the men and women of the Summit Police Department.
Growing up, the PAL was prominent wherever I lived. It went beyond maintaining a positive relationship between kids and local law enforcement. Through sports and other activities, it fostered a sense of community and civic pride. I’d like to help do the same for our kids and local law enforcement.
I joined the PAL as I felt it was a great opportunity to get more formally involved in the community. I have coached girl’s lacrosse in town for 10 years but was looking for ways to expand upon that role and hopefully have a positive impact on more Summit residents.
I joined the PAL to volunteer and give back to the community I’ve lived in since 2003. I have seen first hand the many contributions the PAL has made to our Summit community. Being a member gives me the opportunity to play an active role in helping the PAL continue to make a positive impact for all who live in our town.
I’ve lived in Summit for over 10 years and this is my second year on the PAL. I joined the board after I learned about the many great contributions they make to the community.
Growing up in Summit the PAL has always been an important part of the community and being able to serve on the board is a way for me to be involved and give back.
The Summit PAL has a rich history of enabling great community programs that create and foster pride and spirit in the town of Summit. I joined the Summit PAL to ensure that these programs and events continue for years to come and that we also continue our efforts with both D.A.R.E and Summit High School scholarships.
When I moved to Summit 16 years ago, it was apparent the police department's engagement with the community was unique and something that made our town so special. Being a member of the Summit PAL allows me to support events that enhance our community while highlighting our excellent police department.
I joined the PAL because I love to give back to the community by volunteering.
I joined the PAL because I believe strongly that without the help of volunteers in my community growing up, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am from a long line of law enforcement officers from the NYPD and feel that serving the Summit PAL is a way of honoring their service to others. Also, the schwag.
