The Stillwater Area Community Center is looking for individuals over the age of 18 to coach our Biddy Ball Program. We also accept youth between the ages of 14-17 as assistant coaches for this program. Our Biddy Ball Program is for children in Pre-K to 2nd grade. The children are divided into 4 groups based on age/skill level. They are rotated through four different stations that teach fundamental basketball skills. During the last session, there are scrimmages. Prospective coaches will be asked to fill out a coach’s registration form and will undergo a background check. If interested, please contact Shay at firstname.lastname@example.org or 664-2515 x10.

Terry Simmons has been a Stillwater resident for 20 years after meeting her Village resident husband, Wayne. They have four grown children who are Warrior grads, all of whom enjoyed SACC activities through Boy Scouts and other events as they grew up. Prior to arriving in Stillwater, Terry’s volunteer experience includes Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Schenectady Light Opera, and Schenectady Civic Playhouse. Terry and Wayne are active members of the Town of Stillwater Emergency Management committee and the Boy Scouts’ Order of the Arrow Ceremonies Team. Terry is employed in the healthcare arena and offers more than 35 years of business experience that includes administration/management, insurance, human resources, and information technology.
I grew up in the area and have lived in Stillwater for `13 years. Over the past 3 years as Treasurer of SACC, we have made instrumental progress regarding the centers financial position. We have implemented and passed an annual outside audit 3 years in a row, we’ve implemented several cost and accounting controls to track SACC’s cash payments and we’ve submitted and adhered too a balanced budget for 3 years. Additionally, we’ve hired a bookkeeper, paid down our long term energy loan, purchased a new eldercare van and maintained a significant cash balance to pay towards our daily operations and community programs. This has all resulted in a win for SACC as well as the community as we have the ability to offer more programs for children and seniors alike as well as maintain and improve the infrastructure of the SACC building. I have the experience and knowledge over my career managing millions of revenue dollars across US Hospitals and bring 3 years of transparency and fiscally responsible behavior in regards to SACC’s finances. I love this community and have volunteered my time as soccer, T-ball and Battle football coach. I would appreciate your vote this November to continue to build our center, enhance our programs and maintain our positive financial position for the future of our community. My boys also said vote for their dad, or else J ! Thank you
Recently, I retired from my position of Business Manager for the NYS Theatre Institute. I have been volunteering at special events at the Stillwater Area Community Center as well as assisting Judy Wood-Shaw with the Senior Time luncheons. I have been a volunteer with Angel Names for the past six years and just joined the backpack program at the elementary school.
I would like to contribute more of my time to the community of Stillwater and to that end I am hoping to become a member of the Stillwater Area Community Center Board of Directors.
I have lived in Stillwater for the past 40+ years. My son Paul is an instructor at SACC’s Pentjak Karate program and my grandson has recently become one of its newest members. I believe the community center is a vital entity of Stillwater and would like to become an integral part of its continuation.

My name is Mary Beth and I am fairly new to Stillwater, however I grew up in a neighboring small town. I have two small children in the Stillwater schools who participate in numerous SACC programs. Growing up in a small town, I know how important it is to have facility like the community center available for local events and programs. The community center is a wonderful resource for the entire Stillwater area. I would like to have the opportunity to contribute to the furtherance of the many programs and services provided by the community center.
I currently work as an attorney for a non-profit organization, however prior to becoming an attorney I was a registered dietitian who worked in public health providing health related programs to both children and senior citizens. I feel that my background, knowledge and experience are strong qualifications for becoming a board member. I look forward to volunteering and giving back to the community where my children and family live and play.
I am entering my fourth year on the Board of Directors, and have served as the President for the past year. This past year has been incredibly rewarding in terms of working with our new Executive Director and a cohesive Board of Directors. Working together, the Community Center has become financially viable and an increasingly inviting and welcoming place for our residents to enjoy sports, the arts and a wide assortment recreational activities and programs. I have a strong desire to continue to work in concert with all involved, including our wonderful volunteers, to enhance program offerings and to improve the physical beauty and functionality of the Center. I have a complete understanding of the expectations of a member of the Board, including how important it is to be committed to serving actively and to devoting the necessary time required to make a difference.
I am a lifelong Stillwater resident and can say that I attended “middle school” at the Community Center. I have always enjoyed serving and working with the public, having worked for Saratoga County for twenty four years in Social Services as a Director. I am currently a consultant and enjoy working with families in obtaining long term care assistance for their loved ones. I also work for the Town of Stillwater in the Planning and Zoning Department. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Management and a Masters Degree in Public Service and Health Services Administration, both from Russell Sage College. I have recently been appointed to serve on the New York State Children and Family Services Advisory Board, upon the recommendation of Senator Kathleen Marchione.
Most importantly, I am the proud mother of one adult son who also graduated from Stillwater. I have a wonderful daughter-in-law and three beautiful granddaughters. They currently live in Maryland.
I consider it a privilege to serve on the Board of Directors and take my commitment to the Center’s future very seriously.
The Board of Director’s election will be held on November 14 from 6-8pm during The Stillwater Area Community Center’s Open house! There are 4 three year term seats and 1 one year term seat. Below are the names of the candidates running.
