The summer parks program for 2017 in Spring Garden Township has been canceled, according to a notice from the township.

Christine Hartle, who has been recreation director for the township for the past 12 years, announced her resignation effective May 31, the notice reads. Hartle intends to pursue other career paths.

Because of the timing and lack of a replacement for Hartle's position, the program was canceled for the year. Anyone who paid the registration fee can get a full refund from the township by calling the recreation department, according to the notice.

Future recreation programs are on hold until the board of commissioners and the township recreation commission can plan the future of recreation in Spring Garden Township, the notice states.
