The Summit Police Athletic League has two of their most popular events scheduled for March. All events are free to Summit residents.
The Annual Ping Pong Tourney is scheduled for Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 10:00 AM at the Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Avenue.
This single elimination tournament is open to all Summit residents in grades 5 through 8. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. There will be a grand prize drawing for a Ping Pong Table at the end of the event. There will be refreshments and raffle prizes are also provided by the Summit PAL. Summit Police Officers will be on hand to meet the participants and perhaps challenge them to a match or two. All the equipment you need is provided. This program is co-sponsored by the City of Summit Department of Community Programs. There is a practice date set for Friday, March 19, 2010 at the Community Center from 4:00 - 6:00 PM for those that want to refine their game. You never know which of Summit's celebrities will show up for this annual event.
Parents should mark their calendar for the premiere Summit event of the spring season. The Annual PAL Egg Hunt is scheduled for Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 10:00 AM at the Summit Family Aquatic Center located at 100 Ashwood Avenue. Rain Date for the event will be Saturday, April 3, 2010. There is a Rain Date Hotline for inclement weather. Parents can call 908-277-2932 Ext. 12. Parents are urged to bring their cameras to take a picture with the Easter Bunny. Children's entertainment will also be available this year. There will be two actual hunts based on age categories. The Summit Family Aquatic Center's campus makes for a fun hunt as you have to search the beautiful woods surrounding the pools. The younger children will hunt in the sand volleyball court, weather permitting. The ground can be a bit wet this time of year, so dress accordingly. This event is co-sponsored by the Summit Department of Community Programs.
