Asa C. Adams Elementary

Riot Athletic Complex Endeavor 

May 20, 2015 Informational Meeting


Orono Middle School Gymnasium

R.A.C.E. is a commitment to the future of Orono and to the community of Orono. The athletic facilities for the Orono community are very aged, have drainage issues, are difficult to access and cannot be used for track competition.

The School Board committed to R.A.C.E. in 2014, kicking off the work by installing three new tennis courts in the summer and fall of 2014.

R.A.C.E has three committees: Engineering, Marketing and Funding.  Each committee is comprised of Orono stakeholders who care deeply about Orono, especially our youth.  We urge you to get involved!
