Please see the message below from Sanford/Springvale Basketball Association.

Coach Paul and the admin team of SSBA have not made any final decisions to date. We are meeting once again next week. We are not affected by the closure of parks and facilities run by the City of Sanford. We are a private non-profit organization. However, we do recognize whatever decisions we make may impact the community in which we live in and love. Please stay healthy in the meantime. Wear a mask, wash your hands, stay your distance and do not gather in large groups. We all need to do our part.

#WeMakeEvents – Now at Red Alert!

The Live Events Industry is on Red Alert for its very survival and is creating congressional pressure to act now.

#BeAnArtsHero, a grassroots coalition of arts and cultural workers, reports:

“The Arts & Culture sector employs 5.1 million people and provides $877 billion value added to the U.S. economy. It adds more value to the economy than transportation, agriculture, or tourism. The Arts & Culture sector is a cornerstone of the larger U.S. economy, making up 4.5% of GDP. Despite their out-sized cultural and economic contribution, the Arts & Culture sector of the U.S. economy is in grave danger.

Due to Covid-19, 62% of Arts Workers report that they are fully unemployed. 94% of Arts workers report income loss; to date, the average Arts worker reports $23,500 in lost revenue this year. Due to Covid, 66% of Arts workers report they are unable to access the spaces, staff, resources, or supplies needed to perform their work.

According to the Brookings Institute economic report Lost Art: Measuring COVID-19’s Devastating Impact on America’s Creative Economy, they estimate a loss of “ 2.7 million jobs and more than $150 billion in sales of goods and services for creative industries nationwide, representing nearly a third of all jobs in those industries and 9% of annual sales. The fine and performing arts industries will be hit hardest, suffering estimated losses of almost 1.4 million jobs and $42.5 billion in sales. These estimated losses represent 50% of all jobs in those industries and more than a quarter of all lost sales nationwide.”

As theatres, concert tours, festivals, opera houses, trade shows, and other live events as well as film and television production remain closed, or open on a very limited basis, the entire industry is impacted, from designers, technicians, programmers, and stagehands to rental shops, manufacturers, and distributors of entertainment technology. The first industry to close last March, Live Events could be the last sector to re-open due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Please visit: https://wemakeevents.org to help the Arts!

#WeMakeEvents #RedAlertRESTART #ExtendPUA

On September 1st, 2020, #WeMakeEvents, a coalition of trade bodies, businesses, unions, and live events workers, will light up their venues, homes, and cities red in over 1,500 locations across North America to raise public and media awareness in support of the live events sector. Will you join us?

It’s Graduation Day for the Sanford High School Class of 2020! Although they will not have a traditional graduation, we as a community can still support them. There will be a parade beginning at the HS and they will make their way to Springvale. This begins at 7pm. Be on the north bound side of traffic to cheer them on! Tune into The Legends 104.3 as the official parade channel! Congratulations to you all!

06/01/2020

First, we would like to start off by saying WE MISS YOU. Our building has been lonely without the dribbles of basketball, pings of a pickleball, applause from a theatre show and just the every day chatter.

Our building is slowly starting to open. There are limited sports options taking place in our building. There are service organizations returning. And our learning center numbers are increasing weekly.

With that said, please be patient with us. Our doors remain closed to the general public as we need to keep count of our numbers and we do not have a full time staff to man the door. If you plan to visit, please make an appointment via email at [email protected] or call 207-324-5657.

If you are looking for childcare, please contact All Friends Learning Center at 207-324-0666.

04/29/2020

We are currently pouring through the information that was released from Governor Mills yesterday and evaluating what that means for the community center. Please stay tuned for further announcements but for now we remain closed. Please continue to do your part in staying safe not only for yourself but for others. We miss you!

If anything, let this time show us how dependent we are on one another and how interconnected we are. We need each other. We are much stronger and more courageous together. What we can do together is immeasurable and limitless. Community is what keeps us alive.
We miss all our community members and hope you are all staying safe and healthy.

03/25/2020

With the Governor’s executive order today, we will remain closed to the public until at least April 8th. This excludes our early learning center however. If you have questions or concerns regarding your event, rental, billing etc. please email the office at [email protected]. Let’s all do our part. Stay healthy and we can’t wait to see everyone again!

Many of you have reached out and asked how you can help us. We can’t thank you enough. Small businesses and non profits are in need all across this country. As many know, we survive off donations, grants, rentals and events in both our gym and theatre, reoccurring meetings to service organizations such as Kiwanis Club of Sanford Maine and Rotary Club of Sanford-Springvale, Maine and our Early Learning Center. This week has been an emotional roller coaster and so tough on us as we’ve closed our doors so we can help do our part in flattening the curve not only in our beloved community but everywhere.
So what do we need from you?
Please do your part and make social distancing trendy. Stay home as much as you can.
Check on your neighbors and the most vulnerable via phone, email, social media or note left on their door.
Support your children at home with their new normal during this unsettled time.
Keep us in mind for your next rental, sporting event, theatre offering once we open our doors again. We will need it. Keep us busy!
And lastly if you are able to, donate to our network for good account using the following link: https://www.networkforgood.org/donation/ExpressDonation.aspx?ORGID2=74-3029645
Wish miss you all,

Dear Members of the Community,

It is with an abundance of caution and care for our community that we have chosen to close the community center for a 2 week period of time. This will mirror our school system. Governor Mills has also declared a State of Civil Emergency. All events, activities and rentals are canceled or postponed at this time.

Our Early Learning Center on site will remain open for the time being to help families. While that area of the building remains open, it will look a little different in the coming days. We will also do our upmost diligence to sanitize these areas. Please consult with the Early Learning Center Director for more details.

Limited staff will be available for questions via our Facebook, email or telephone. Please be patience as we all experience these new unchartered waters together.

You, our community and all who walk in our doors are like family and we make this choice with all of you in mind. Continue to follow CDC recommendations for handwashing, social distancing and other ways to protect yourself and others from this virus. We will update you regularly and wish you all well.

Stay safe and healthy,
Emily Sheffield
Executive Director

Marilla is not pleased with the orphanage's mix-up, but agrees to keep the little girl for one month with the hope that she will be able to civilize Anne before sending her back. But will the imaginative and mischievous girl win over the hearts of her reluctant parents?

We are looking forward to performing at the Nasson Community Center and Little Theatre on Friday night (10/25) at 7:30! We hope you'll call to reserve your tickets and join us for a fun night of bluegrass, old country, folk and French Canadian fiddle music!!
can you get great white to play at the theater?
They should shut you down for canceling "Oh Susanna". Children will learn nothing from cowards.
Bates college has a group that plays traditional Indonesian music, it'd be a great way to spice up things.
Our fair is actually called the "Family Fun Fair at Nasson". Join us on Saturday, June 10th from 9:00-2:00!
