This week's notes:
Good morning, St. George! Here we go in the first week of June!
1. A big thank you to Morgan Hilliard, Jake Ward and Bryan Morse for donating the time to repair and reshingle the dugout roof at the big ballfield!
We are blessed to have great people in this community who will give of their time and expertise. These three guys are just the latest examples - thanks again!
2. Speaking of volunteers... if there are any parents or other interested people that might be interested in joining the Rec Committee, please contact me in the next week or so. The commitment is one meeting a month and a willingness to help out with Mussel Ridge weekend and during our St. George Days activities. We have a good group, but we are always open to new ideas and new energy.
3. Batting Practice and or fielding 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. In addition, if anyone wants to take catch a few fly balls or ground balls, I am happy to hit some. My fungo bat travels with me now!
- 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
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.
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
