October 1, 3-5 PM The Town-Wide Decades Birthday Party will be held on the Town Common!
The Recreation Committee is pleased to be a co-sponsor with the Council on Aging of this brand-new community event honoring all Shutesbury residents who begin a new decade of their lives in 2023. Individuals turning 80, 70, 60, 50 … all the way down to new babies born this year will be celebrated. Any person over 80 is also a special guest.
Everyone in town, of any age, is invited to this gathering to share cupcakes and cider, cheer the honorees as they parade around the common, and maybe make some new friends.
2nd Annual Family Field Day!
The cool weather and threat of rain did nothing to dampen spirits! If success is measured by laughter and excitement, then Family Field Day was off the charts!
First, a huge thank you to Mr. Steven Carra who led the events with tremendous enthusiasm and energy,
Second, a big thank you to all the kids and their families who came! The Recreation Committee is thrilled to sponsor this event and looks forward to many more years!
The Recreation Committee purpose:
The Recreation Committee develops recreational activities designed to build community and enrich the quality of life in Shutesbury. The Committee sponsors and supports recreational experiences and related educational programming for all age groups.
Are you interested in becoming a member of the Recreation Committee?
The Recreation Committee is looking for new members, and would especially benefit from members interested in bringing new ideas and energy to three areas:
First, supporting and adding to programs for children and their families - such as our annual Family Field Day.
Second, working on the Community Garden, which has approval to be sited near the new library. In addition to helping establish the garden, this work will include developing workshops on practices, such as sustainable farming techniques, that people can use as they plan their gardens.
Finally, a group of pickleball enthusiasts have been playing twice a week at the Elementary school and the committee is looking for ways to support their efforts to expand access.
