Councilman DeLucia Lauded For Recreation Service

Lewisboro Deputy Supervisor Peter DeLucia has been named the recipient of the 2011 Westchester Recreation and Parks Society's public service award.

DeLucia was presented with the award at the group’s 54th Award and Scholarship Luncheon in Rye on Friday. The occasion marked the 29th time the award has been handed out since 1971.

DeLucia is also a member of the town’s Recreation Advisory Council and is a liaison to the Parks and Rec Department.

DeLucia received the award for his dedication and service to the town’s recreation programs over the years, including obtaining private donations for the annual fireworks show, revamping the youth leagues’ policies, his work with the town pool, and being a true supporter of recreation and looking for ways to improve the quality of life in Lewisboro.

“It was very humbling,” DeLucia said. “It was awesome. You don’t realize how long you’ve been doing it until you hear it out loud. It’s a tremendous honor.”

Lewisboro Supervisor Charles Duffy was on hand to read a proclamation from the town honoring the fact that DeLucia won the award.

DeLucia said his love for recreation goes back several decades.

“I’ve always been involved,” he said. “I was coaching women’s softball for my wife’s team 20 years ago. I also coached my kids’ teams and was involved with the pool. One of the issues I started with was when I found out that there was no concession stand or press box at the Little League field in the town park and worked to fix that.”

DeLucia also lauded the Westchester Recreation and Park’s Society, calling it a “fantastic organization.”

“They make sure there’s a wide variety of recreation available to Westchester County and that it’s safe and fun,” DeLucia said. “They are a great way to get info out to a large group of people. They make us (town government) look good.”
