Mayor Nicholas Sacco and Park & Public Property Commissioner Hugo Cabrera once again hosted North Bergen’s annual dinner honoring participants in the township’s summer tennis, volleyball, and swim programs. The event was held on Monday, July 31 at the Recreation Center.
About 25 kids in grades 6 to 8 participated in the volleyball program this year, while nearly 70 kids ages 9 through 14 participated in the tennis camp. The instructional programs included lessons in how to play as well as recreational games throughout the summer. Volleyball has been offered in North Bergen for about five years, while the tennis program is about 10 years old and continues to grow.
More than 100 kids ages 5 through 18 participated this year in the popular swimming program. The program offered instruction, recreational swimming, and even some competitive meets.
Attendees at the annual event were treated to a meal, and everyone received a medal for participating in their chosen sport.
