CLARK – Clark Recreation has a new bocce court, thanks to a donation from the Keith W. Dolan Memorial Fund Committee. It was built and installed free of charge by Clark resident Steve Paterno and his son Steven.
Dolan was the part time recreation director for a short time. Current Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo took over after Dolan’s sudden death. Bernardo said, “Keith would be happy to see the recreation department expanding its programs more and more each year.”
The Dolan Fund Committee raise money for various youth programs and organizations each spring through a golf outing in Keith’s name.
