Parks & Recreation News - batting practice Wednesdays 2 to 4, Collins Park
Good morning, St. George!
I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to all who served and continue to serve our country!
Collins Park Developments - the merry go round has been taken out for repairs and will be returned when it has been repaired and reinforced. We have had some young people come forward and express remorse for the damage caused and they will be working with me on a community service project to bring something positive to the community. While it is regrettable that the damage happened to begin with, the acceptance of personal responsibility for a mistake is a a powerful lesson for a young person and one that I hope will inform their lives going forward. We all have done things that we regret, but owning what's yours helps all to move forward.
On another note, the vines and undergrowth around the trees has been cut back, hopefully making the area look better. Thanks to Gerry Cushman for removing the cuttings.
Batting Practice anyone? I will be at the batting cage at the big ballfield Wednesday from 2-4 to throw batting practice to anyone who wants to hit.
- Social distancing is mandatory
- hitters enter the cage alone and when done hitting exit.
- use your own bats if possible
- there will be bats there and will be wiped down after each use
- open to both baseball and softball
Thanks to Davin Putansu for this batting practice idea!
Stay safe and stay positive. We will get through this! Take care!

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.
