New Member – Tim Jordan resigned his position with the Recreation Committee. Greg will attend the next Selectmen’s meeting and request one of our alternates be appointed regular membership. It was discussed that Jason was the likely candidate.

Soccer Programs – Registration will take place at the Lamoine School (behind the school) on Wednesday, August 12th from 5-7. Tim put in a request (prior to resigning) for use of the soccer field on Wednesdays from 5-7 and Saturday, for games, from 9-1. We will follow up with Betty. There was a discussion of what the fee would be. Vote in favor of the Rec Soccer Program to charge a fee of $30.00 was 5-0. Liz confirmed she would like to coach U6, Amanda Frost - U8, and Brandon Joy - U11. In terms of a Rec Soccer Program Director, Liz stated she will ask Stephanie Joy.


Becky will work on a flyer and will contact Ellsworth American to put the information regarding registration for week of 7/30. Liz pointed out the Participant Form does not include “Pre-K” on the grades. Becky will email Stu and request it be added. Liz will contact Berg Active Wear to give them a heads up that we will be ordering t-shirts for the Rec Soccer Team. Vote in favor of having t-shirts black with yellow lettering was 5-0.

Greg reported the Lamoine School Board will pay for the paint if we arranged for having the field lined. Becky said her husband Nate, who will be the school’s new soccer coach, will arrange to have the fields lined and set up. Liz discussed what would be needed for this season: first-aid kits for each coach, pump, and soccer balls. Becky will talk to Tim about the remaining soccer balls from last season and borrowing goals. Greg will look at Sam’s Club for first-aid kits. Liz will ask Lamoine General Store about donation for Rec Soccer Program. There was a discussion about having a “basic” concessions at Rec Soccer games: Waters, Gatorades, candy, granola bars. Liz suggested we have a parent volunteer sign-up sheet for each game.

Open Gym Basketball and Sunday Softball Programs – Jason reported there was a pretty good turn-out for the Adult Pick-Up Basketball on Saturdays. We will look to begin the program the fall. Greg reported there was little interest in the Family Fun Day Softball on Sundays, therefore, the program is done.

Next Meeting – The committee agreed to meet again on September 12, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. at the Lamoine Town Hall.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 7:18 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted,
