During a recent Lower Providence Board of Supervisors meeting, the township officially recognized the Parks and Recreation Department Director Karl A. Lukens. Lukens was the recipient of the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society’s Distinguished Member award. Lukens’ award was granted for his years of hard work in the township.
“I want to say ‘thank you’ on behalf of the board,” said Supervisor Patrick Duffy, who presented the award to Lukens in a short ceremony preceding the April supervisors’ meeting. “He has continued to do an outstanding job here, and is being recognized for a job well done.”
Duffy said that Lukens has often taken the old and made it new again while working with the Parks and Recreation Department’s many programs for the community.
“He has recycled old programs, come up with new, very successful classes,” said Duffy, referencing the latest Girls’ Night Out, which offered cupcake decorating for women of the township. The event was very full, according to Duffy.
Lukens also played a major role in the township’s new “Community Pass,” an online registration site allowing members of the community to register for camps, courses and events seamlessly via the web.
The Lower Providence Parks and Recreation Department officially oversees the 12 area parks maintained by the township. It also provides educational resources, summer camps and trips for the community. From discounted movie and amusement park passes, to egg hunts and fire works, the department strives to create interesting and fun events for its residents.
