Rec center is bustling

R ecreation director Dan Welch reported that his first Friday movie night drew about 25 youths to the rec center and added that he plans to continue to hold similar events.

“That’s a really good turnout for the first time,” said Welch who is also arranging plans for a dance at the center.

Welch said he will likely be changing the center’s hours, moving them an hour earlier to 3 to 7 p.m. “We just don’t have anyone there after seven. The kids have all gone home.”

The Town Board voted to take the savings from Welch’s decision to take a lower salary and put them in the rec center’s general account. Welch, a retired Glens Falls police officer, cannot take the full salary because of retirement regulations and is making $9,999 annually, instead of the higher, original salary.

Trustee Richard LaChapelle made the motion, saying he felt strongly that the money ought to go to Welch’s efforts to improve and expand the offerings at the center.
