Recreation Directors, goodbye to Ned and welcome Craig!!

 

Ned Bangs

Every day we make difficult decisions, one door closes and another opens. I would like to express my gratitude to the town of Marshfield for taking a chance on me. I have been fortunate to be able to work here; I feel that I have had one of the best jobs around. My college professor informed us that we should be prepared for a career which includes nights, weekends and holidays. Truer words were never spoken.

 

We have witnessed many changes, from typewriters and pagers to seasonal community brochures, online registrations, cell phones, email and texting. Our office grew from a small 3 x 6 space with one window and no heat to our site at Coast Guard Hill, with a/c, ballfields, gardens, green house, sledding hill, sand vb courts and the best view around from the top of Coast Guard Hill.  

 

Parks and Recreation has the capacity to touch every person, whether a small child or aging adult, whether a new resident or lifelong community member. This has not been a job, but rather a way of life for me. Our profession has the unique opportunity to influence the lives of an entire community, this is what excites me.

 

Working together, we established a variety of community programs and traditions, I will cherish these memories and the many co-workers, volunteers and families we worked with. My last day in the office will be Friday, October 21.
