The city of Newcastle is looking for a few good volunteers to serve on the Community Activities Commission.

Two seats are available after the terms of longtime Commissioner Angela Ursino and Commissioner Vicki Hupf expired, and they elected to no longer continue on with the board.

Seven Newcastle residents serve on the commission, facilitating events and programs in the city. The city is looking for enthusiastic candidates, ready to enhance the quality of life in Newcastle.

“Commissioners are an important part of making Newcastle unique due to their involvement in projects that improve the city’s extensive trail system, create awareness of Newcastle’s historical and cultural heritage and provide opportunities for people to volunteer,” city staff wrote in a press release. “The work of this Commission directly contributes to the distinguishing characteristics of this city that lead Money magazine to name Newcastle one of the best small towns in America.” Read more
