Sardinia youth board given access to town facility by town board
On Aug. 9, the town board voted unanimously to allow the youth board to use the town facility for its Friday night recreation program. The program is for children ages 6 15 and will begin some time during October and run through the spring.
I just want to have a place [for kids] to be able to go in the winter, Chris Warner said, before the town board. I just wanted a place where the kids could run around and be with friends.
It has been some time since the program was offered to children, according to Town Clerk Betsy Marsh.
The event is run by volunteers and uses the recreation director as a contact person to oversee the program, which will run the length of the 201213 school year.
