Meridian – In the first regular meeting of the Meridian Parks and Recreation Commission, Commissioner Dom Gelsomino was recognized for his service as Commission President for the 2020 year.

Here is what the Commissioner had to say regarding the recognition, “Tonight, I had the humbling privilege of being recognized for my service as President of the Meridian Parks and Recreation Commission for the 2020 year. I once again extend my sincerest appreciation for the trust my fellow commissioners placed in me to preside over the Commission. The Chair and Vice -Chairmanship of the commission are for the duration of 1 year, which provides a great opportunity for every member at some point to hold a leadership position and the opportunity later down the road to hold that position again!

Despite 2020’s affect on our goals agenda last year, our amazing team at the Parks Department, on the commission, in cooperation with volunteers and other members of our local government managed to quickly and successfully reorganize and accommodate for the challenges we faced last year resulting in a still solidly successful year for Parks and Recreation. With hopes that 2021 will be a better year, I’m looking forward to all we will accomplish in the coming months!”
