GUILFORD -- For much of summer vacation, SAD 4-area students in grades 1-6 have had the opportunity to keep busy and active playing a number of games, go on field trips and more through the Guilford Summer Rec program.

Guilford Summer Rec Director Joe Gallant, who was headed the program for the last decade, said the children come to the Piscataquis Community High School gym five days a week for eight weeks to take part in activities all morning long. “It starts the Monday after school goes out,” Gallant said on Aug. 5 during the next to last week of the 2015 program before the participants began to arrive for the morning.
