Hi my name is Mark Jurilla and I am a volunteer Board Member for Newton Community Pride. I’ve been involved in community banking and lending since moving to Newton in 2006. I wanted to connect with my community both professionally and personally in a more significant way and volunteering with NCP was the right fit. I served on the NCP Board once before from 2007-2012 and can appreciate how much NCP has grown this past year. It’s an exciting time to be part of NCP as it expands its non profit mission into public art, as well as continue it’s support for community arts and culture programming, beautification and service.
As a young father of three, my wife Jillian and I appreciated & enjoyed the last few months of events that NCP financially supported like the Linda Plaut Festival of the Arts, the July 4th celebration and the summer concerts in Newton Centre. In appreciation for the smiles on my kid’s faces and NCP’s year round programming, my wife and I subscribe to a monthly donation program that works well for our philanthropic giving and shows in a small way our Newton community pride.
