Bob Zoldos is no longer the mayor in Lovettsville, but his service will to the town will be memorialized in Town Square, or rather Zoldos Square.
The Town Council on Thursday voted unanimously to declare June 30 as Zoldos Day and to rename the square in honor of the three-term mayor, who did not seek reelection in May. Under the action, the town’s square traffic circle—long known as the “squirkle”—should now be referred to as the “Zquirkle.”
“I was so humbled and honored by the kind words … but was truly speechless when the council unanimously approved the resolution,” Zoldos said. “I have never received such an honor and cannot think of the words to express my thanks.”
The council recognized Zoldos for his 20 years serving on the Town Council, his founding of Movies on the Green, the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony and the Berserkle on the Squirkle community event, in addition to his overall leadership in helping the town to grow its commercial sector.
