Currently , Carol is the president of the Friends of the Aston Public Library Board of Directors and treasurer of the Aston Township Historical Society.

Both Dennis and Carol were involved in the Aston Middletown Little League when their children were young and they are frequent attendees at Aston Commissioners meetings.
