Dear Members & Friends of the Rec:

The summer has come to a close, the island roads have quieted a bit, and the Rec is active as ever!  With programming for younger folks, older folks, and everyone in between, the Rec is looking forward to spending these cooler, calmer fall days with our Chebeague community.

Read on for an overview of our October programming, as well as a reminder of our weekly offerings.  Is there something we're missing?  Reach out to share your program ideas with us ([email protected]). We're listening!

In appreciation,

Steve Auffant, Executive Director

Jenny Hackel, President
