Community Gaming Area at Memorial Park Now Open

posted Jun 22, 2018, 5:54 AM by Nicole Hall


The Community Gaming Area located at Memorial Park is now open to the public! This area includes two pickleball courts, two checkers/chess boards, and corn hole boards. These games/courts are available to anyone to use on a first-come, first-play basis. For the time being, all users must bring their own gear (game pieces and rackets and balls). The future goal is to have gear available to borrow through Community Services Office.

Please note that this area may have times of closure due to ongoing work being completed, including installation of benches and safety netting to the pickleball courts, as well as development of the bocce court.

Now Accepting K-5 Summer Day Camp Waitlist Registration

posted May 15, 2018, 11:15 AM by Nicole Hall   [ updated May 15, 2018, 11:16 AM ]

As of May 15, 2018, our absolute maximum enrollment number have been reached for Grades K-5 camp, with the only exception being Week 2 (July 2-6), which only has 10 more spots available.

All aspects have been factored into figuring out our maximum headcount, including the space provided to us within Wentworth School, the number of qualified staff we have to supervise campers, the buses available to us for transportation to and from trips, and the capacity of the various venues we visit throughout the summer. As much as we would like enroll everyone who is interested in attending camp, it is just not feasible.

We are now accepting waitlist registrations for all K-5 summer camp options, with the idea that if someone drops from the entire program, from a single week, or from a Friday trip, we will have a backup list of interested individuals to call and fill the spot. Please give us a call at 207-730-4150 to be added to your chosen weeks. If we are able to accommodate your child, we will contact you by phone, add the program to your cart, and have you complete the payment online.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your continued support.

Changes in Online Credit Card Processing -- Effective June 30, 2018

posted Apr 10, 2018, 11:43 AM by Nicole Hall

The latest PCI compliance standards require that any site accepting credit card payments uses TLS 1.2 after June 30, 2018. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the

protocol that allows digital devices, such as computers and tablets, to communicate over the internet securely without the transmission being vulnerable to an outside audience.

The credit card gateway that connects to our registration software is moving towards requiring support of TLS 1.2 earlier than the June 30 deadline, so most likely it will happen sometime in May. At that time, registrations completed online will require customers to run their registrations and payments through an internet browser that supports TLS 1.2. If action is not taken by the customer to enable this new security protocol, credit card transactions WILL FAIL and registration will not be complete.

Please follow the steps provided in the TLS 1.2 Document to ensure a smooth transition. We will keep everyone apprised of the proposed date for the switch. Thank you!
