Neighbors, Friends, Family and Officials Celebrate
Jack McCluskey Rainbow Park
Pembroke Pines, FL… June 29, 2017….Neighbors, friends, family and city officials celebrated the decades’ long years of service of Jack McCluskey to the City of Pembroke Pines during a Ribbon Cutting and Park Dedication of the “Jack McCluskey Rainbow Park” located at 9201 N.W. 19th Street in the Rainbow Lakes section of Pembroke Pines. The park features eight lighted outdoor racquetball courts, a shaded walking/jogging/bike path, and a covered tot lot/playground
At the June 28, 2017 ceremony, Jack McCluskey, a 48-year resident of Pembroke Pines, was recognized for his lifelong involvement and commitment to the City of Pembroke Pines, where he raised his family, served as a City Commissioner and three times as Vice Mayor. McCluskey’s service to Pembroke Pines began in 1969, when he served as a Charter Member and President of the Lakes Homeowners’ Association. In the ensuing 40 years, McCluskey has held positions on dozens of City boards and committees. In addition to serving three terms on the Commission, he served on the boards of the South Broward Drainage District and the Broward League of Cities.
Among those attending the ceremony to honor Jack McCluskey were his wife of 59 years Gloria, their three sons and longtime friends and neighbors who moved into the Pasadena Lakes section of Pembroke Pines in the late 1960’s. The park dedication took on considerably more significance when friends attending mentioned how many years they had been friends with Jack, 300 years and counting.
“Today we recognize Jack for his past dedication and years of service to the City of Pembroke Pines. Jack has been involved at the highest level in our community and now he continues to serve as the City of Pembroke Pines Historian,” said Mayor Frank C. Ortis.
Those attending the Ribbon Cutting and Dedication ceremony enjoyed light refreshments, fellowship and stories about the good old days.
