Recreation Department Update
3/31/20 from Ben Vail, Parks and Recreation Director
Ballfield Update: The Little League infield at the Big Ballfield has been raked out. It is still soft, so we recommend that you stay off it for now. Prior to the rain, the outfield was largely firm enough to get out on. As you practice social distancing, the outfield is available for use.
PLEASE stay off the infield of the big diamond. It is the wettest part of the facility.
My next project is to prepare the infield on the Landing Field.
2. Tennis courts - as in the past, the courts will be opened in mid-April when weather allows.
Collins Park in Port Clyde - the new swings have been installed at the playground. We want to get off to a good start with this facility this year and we thank you in advance for your respectful use of the equipment there.

Update from the Broadband Committee The Connect St. George Committee is asking the St. George community to participate in Maine Broadband Coalition's Speed Tes t . The goal of the “Get Up To Speed” initiative is to gather data from across the state to generate the most comprehensive map of both the presence and quality of internet in Maine to date. How does this help the Connect St. George initiative? The new speed testing initiative is the crucial next step in ensuring the delivery of broadband throughout the state and will help local, regional, and state leaders develop projects and steer investments to the places that need it most. The test takes less than 1 minute (depending on your internet) and will help us move our project forward.
As we enter March and the anniversary of COVID-19 uprooting our usual routines around the library, we want to take a few moments and share some of the joys we’ve experienced while serving you, our patrons and community. Our Tool Library facilitated a bathroom and closet remodel, and allowed several homes to have wood split for the winter. Craft kits kept a group of patrons in a celebratory mood on New Year’s Eve, and some St. George students masked in style. We’ve provided momentary human and familiar contact to many patrons during curbside pick ups. Documents were printed, jobs were applied for, and vaccines signed up for because of our WiFi, computers, and printers. We are honored to be your library. Our building is in use by our St. George Youth for more than 15 hours a week, and due to capacity limits, we cannot be open to the public during those times. We look forward to offering more in person access to our community once capacity limits are lifted, but for now, we are expand
