Over the weekend of March 17, teams from St. George, Rockland, Thomaston, Camden and Cushing participated in the 22nd annual Mussel Ridge Hoops Tournament. This year’s event was a huge success as usual and would not have been possible without the collective efforts of many, many individuals and businesses. I would like to thank the following for their selfless contributions that allowed over 80 3rd and 4th graders to experience first-rate competition and hospitality, while raising over $4,000 for the St. George Recreation Boosters, who support recreational offerings for the young people of St. George.
Thank you: St. George Town Office staff, particularly Patty St. Clair and Beth Smith; St. George School staff, particularly Jan Letourneau, Randy Elwell, Cheryl Worthing, Darci Morris-Chickering and Janet Harjula; St. George Recreation Committee and Boosters—Raymie Upham, Meghan Benner, Craig Gauthier, Joanna Montgomery, Gary Minery, Missy Gill, Ann Hoppe, Summer Ward and Cassie Kilbride; community members Cindy Hall, Davin Putansu, Dan Miller, Tracy Leavitt, Peter Henderson, Tim Hoppe, Michael Cushman; and innumerable people who donated food or their time to help.
