From the Director’s Desk,
“SPRING HAS SPRUNG”
It’s a great day in Morgan County Recreation!!! I know this spring has been very hectic around the William Wood Park for the past couple of months. We have been juggling Soccer games and Baseball/Fastpitch/Softball practices trying to make it all work. As many of you may know by now, the recent construction at the fields next to the Recreation Department Gym has been part of our problem. We have lost use of two possibly three fields this spring because of renovations at that specific park now owned by the Board of Education, and when that is completed it will be a great facility for Morgan County. At this point we have sixty (60) Baseball/Fastpitch/Softball teams we are scheduling to practice and play at William Wood Park. We have thirteen teams sharing two fields and the other forty seven teams sharing three fields, so to say the least it is a scheduling nightmare especially when you are playing soccer with thirty four teams, practicing baseball/fastpitch/Softball with sixty teams and scheduling games for all teams. The jam up comes because we play soccer in the outfields of our ball fields and you just can’t practice baseball with a soccer game in progress. Needless to say we have out grown our facilities. We do apologize for the inconvenience and appearance of disorganization at times but we have our hands full in scheduling recreation in Morgan County. We are doing long range planning for future facilities with the Board of Commissioners for Morgan County Recreation at this time and I wished we could snap our fingers and it happen, but as you know it takes time. Please continue to bear with us through these times as we grow, we have a great program with great community participation and we very much appreciate you.
Have a Great Spring Break!!!
Lance Alexander, Director

The Morgan County Recreation Department is going to be working on a Promotional Video over the next few months. We will have Georgia Civil using a drone to capture some video during our games, programs, and special events. Don’t be alarmed if you see an odd craft flying around your activity, just give us a wave and a smile! We hope to get some fly-overs and if possible, some in-game action. Thank you!!
We are excited to offer a Spring Break Camp for April 20-24, 2015!! Kids age Pre-k to seventh grade are invited to come and enjoy a week of fun, field trips, and activities.
