Barrington wants to know about your interests


To the editor:

To the people of Barrington: I would like to take a few minutes to introduce myself.

I have been on the job as your new director of recreation and leisure services for five weeks. It has been a very exciting time for me.

Barrington is a wonderfully vibrant community. It has a long tradition of providing successful recreation programs and leisure activities. I am honored to be given the opportunity to work with parents, the schools, the businesses and organizations to build on the popular sports and recreation programs currently in place that have enriched the lives of the residents of Barrington.

My focus as director of recreation and leisure services is to build greater community in Barrington. I am working closely with Peter DeAngelis, the town manager, and the park and recreation commission, to bring a new expanded direction to the department. To do that, we need input from everyone and the involvement of the community. We want to hear from the parents of children in Barrington, people who have participated in adult recreation or arts and cultural programs and students. We also want to hear from organizations and businesses that run programs or would like to sponsor or be involved in programs. We want to know what we can do to meet your interests.

My door is open. I invite you to stop by and talk with me. You can also reach me at 247-1925 or e-mail me at [email protected]

In addition, I have created a short survey . Let me know what programs are working and which are not; what you like the most and what you feel is missing from the programs currently being offered.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the near future at town events.  And I am delighted to work with you in creating recreation and leisure programs in Barrington.

I wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season filled with joy, peace and prosperity.

Michele Geremia
