Though there were many hurdles to get over in 2020, we were able to successfully clear those obstacles and offer new and traditional programs. I am proud of the proactive response of the Sheridan Recreation District and our ability to safely continue programs and park operations. In addition to program offerings and park maintenance, the Sheridan Recreation District has been busy planning for the future. We completed a five year strategic plan and a parks inventory and needs assessment. This planning will help the Sheridan Recreation District update park facilities and expand program offerings though a creative and thought out process. I am proud of the work accomplished in 2020, and am geared up to continue the momentum through 2021. This spring the ball fields at John Oatts Fields will get a face lift. The infield grass will be removed and replaced with an all dirt surface that will allow for consistent ball play. This project will create fields that can be used for a competitive level of play for both baseball and softball. John Oatts Fields are an incredible community gathering place, and I am excited to preserve the space for continued future use. Community partnerships are important to the success of the Sheridan Recreation District, and we look forward to expanding those relationships this year. One organization I would like to highlight is the Antelope Butte Foundation. I am looking forward to expanding the youth outdoor education summer camps that we have offered at the recreation area. Activities at those camps include rock climbing, science activities, hiking, and historic site visits. Additionally, the Sheridan Recreation District would like to expand sponsor donation opportunities. Sponsor donations support new equipment purchases for youth programs, and help us update facilities to ensure safe places to play. We support sponsor donors through marketing opportunities on our website, social media, and at facilities. If this is an opportunity you might be interested in, please let me know. Women’s basketball, co-ed basketball, and co-ed volleyball are adult programs with start dates on the horizon. These leagues are fun, and a great way to stay active during the Wyoming cold months. Also, keep an eye out for the youth baseball and softball clinics hosted in the indoor facility in Thorne-Rider Park. Though I’m not terribly saddened to put 2020 in the rear view mirror, I think it is important to reflect on the successes and failures of the last year. We did a lot of good things at the Sheridan Recreation District, and we look forward to continuing that good work through 2021.
