WINTERPORT – The town has a new recreation director.
Greg Dasilva has held the position for the last several years but he is stepping aside to have more time with his family.
Winterport resident Casey Ashey is taking over.
Ashey said he is working with the town to offer more recreation activities.
“Hunter safety courses in the town. ATV and snowmobile safety courses and stuff like that to try to get the recreation. I think Maine has a big hunting and fishing tradition and it’s something I’m passionate about and I want to kind of transition that in for our youth,” he said.
Ashey said he is very excited about starting basketball and all of the other traditional sports already established in the recreation department.
