THOMASTON — The Thomaston Select Board approved a cornhole tournament outside the Municipal Building Oct. 24. The board approved this fundraiser at their Sept. 13 meeting.

Recreation Director Rene Dorr and Public Works Director Brandon Allen will organize the tournament.

Cornhole is a game where small bags, traditionally filled with dried corn, are thrown at a target consisting of a slanted wooden board with a hole in the elevated end.

The funds from the tournament will be used to create a scholarship for children who are residents of Thomaston to attend the YMCA day camp in the summer.

This summer, the town paired with the YMCA to hold nine weeks of the day camp on town property. Dorr said it was a successful pairing, with 25 to 30 children each week, and 41 children enrolled total.

Board member Sandy Moore said she thought the tournament was a fantastic idea.

Board Chair Diane Giese offered the Thomaston Library’s cornhole set for the tournament.

In other business, the town will hold a workshop Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. to develop a fee schedule for rental rates of town-owned property.

At the workshop, the town will determine fees and charges for using town-owned properties like the Thomaston Green, Watts Hall and the multipurpose room at the Municipal Building.

The board signed a letter of support for a grant application for $52,250 to expand the town’s bike trails.

Pollution Control Superintendent John Fancy and Sidecountry Trails are applying for the grant.

Fancy said Sidecountry Trails spent a significant amount of time and energy this summer maintaining the bike trails already.

The board approved the renewal application of Saybell Corp., doing business as Thomaston Café, for beer, wine and liquor at the restaurant.

The board rescheduled the Oct. 11 meeting to Wednesday, Oct. 13, due to the holiday.

The next board meeting is Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. Meeting can also be viewed remotely on townhallstreams.com.
