Dr. Robert Rubino presented with Fay Matheson Award

Fay Matheson AwardKaren Zimmerman, Awards Committee Chair for the New Jersey Recreation & Parks Association (NJRPA) and Bill Foelsch, NJRPA President, salute former City of Summit Common Council Member Dr. Robert Rubino, who was named the recipient of the organization’s Fay Matheson Award for outstanding work by a volunteer to promote parks in New Jersey.

Rubino is a founding member of the Foundation to establish the Summit Park Line, which would be the first new park in Summit in more than 80 years. The project would establish a linear trail for pedestrians and bicyclists along the previously abandoned Raritan Valley Rail Line stretching from the Springfield border at Briant Park past Overlook Hospital to Broad Street in Summit.
