  • March 17, 2021-Recreation Department Message to Our Community
    One year into the COVID-19 pandemic and we begin to signs of progress in returning to a new normal in the world of Recreation.  Last week Governor Mills announced that the state will be moving into the “Moving Maine Forward” Plan later in March with new guidelines being implement throughout the spring in anticipation for the upcoming summer and tourism season. Our department continues to operate under the State of Maine DECD recommendations for Community Sports, Public Buildings, Gyms and Fitness Centers, and the State of Maine Executive Order 16 FY 20/21 requiring face coverings in all public spaces.
    We thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work through the state recommendations for “return to play”, receive guidance and updates from other local athletic organizers, and thoughtfully evaluate and prepare plans that can be executed when appropriate, to provide safe sport opportunities, social interaction, and participant enjoyment, in a smaller setting that strongly urges safe practices, and social distancing where the program experience allows. We will continue to evaluate future opportunities to offer your program favorites as recommendations change or COVID-19 conditions improve.   For the most current program information or wait lists for future programs please refer to the department website at www.hampdenrecreation.com.
    Gathering size limits are expected to rise later this spring.  Our department will work to schedule events and programs that comfortably adhere to these limits and encourages social distancing amongst different household units at all locations.  Our department will continue to provide any program specific directions and safety information as needed in advance each program commencing. Your family’s support, understanding and adherence to the operational procedures the department has put in place is much appreciated.
    We thank you for your confidence in our decisions as it pertains to providing opportunities to people of all ages in the community. Hampden Recreation respects your decisions for participation and return to play. We look forward to seeing you and your family for some fun very soon!
