Recreation Commission

The Recreation Commission, in cooperation with the Mayor and Council, strives to provide a safe, accessible athletic environment for all residents of Emerson.  The Commission, made up solely of volunteers, oversees the administration of all youth and adult recreation sports programs and coordination of the annual town picnic.  The principles of wellness and the spirit of athletic competition guide the practices of the Commission.
