pring is just around the corner! This time of year is such a wonderful time as the ﬂowers and trees start to bloom it revitalizes my energy. As much as I enjoy all of the seasons the transition from winter to spring is the most exciting. With each passing day, the weather gets warmer and all of nature comes alive. The Recreation and Parks Department is still in a state of limbo as of January 19th 2012. Our ofﬁces remain at the Godnick Adult Center facility where we continue to offer as much programming as we can in that facility. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we navigate through this transition period. Although we have all felt a little squeezed by the space constraints, it has been a joy to have our ofﬁces at Godnick. Experiencing all of the energy surrounding the folks that frequent the Godnick Center on a regular basis has been refreshing. This spring our department will have its hands full in many ways. The parks and maintenance division will be focusing most of its energy bringing the ball ﬁelds on line as soon as possible. With respect to Monsignor Connor Park and Giorgetti Park, due to tropical storm Irene we will have to wait and see. The grounds crew will be aggressively working at both sites to continue to restore the turf damage, but we won’t know for sure if the ﬁelds will be available this year. Our priority will be focused on the long term use for those facilities. Therefore, if we have to sacriﬁce time this year we will do so. However, due to these circumstances our program staff is diligently looking for alternative solutions to still provide the same level of programs we offer in the spring and summer. I am hopeful that after this year most things will be back to normal again. The Giorgetti ice rink will remain open through March 4th. I hope you all have had an opportunity to enjoy the different possibilities it offers from ice skating to playing hockey, broomball or curling. The rink is open to the public many different times during each week with increased hours of operation during the school vacation week. Please visit our website at rutlandrec. com to see the rink schedule and make sure you come down and enjoy the arena. From March 5th through March 9th we’re busy removing the ice and putting down the indoor turf to prepare for a 7 week season of soccer, ﬁeld hockey, lacrosse and even ﬂag football. Make sure you sign up for one of these opportunities. The turf is awesome and provides for one of the best indoor experiences in New England. Thank you to the Rutland Herald and to the businesses that choose to support our department by advertising in this publication. Don’t forget to look for weekly updates every Wednesday in the Herald and visit our website at rutlandrec.com for news on ongoing and upcoming programs and events. Rejuvenate your mind, body and soul, come out and get active this spring with the Rutland Recreation and Parks Department. Sincerely,
EJay Bishop, Superintendent
