  • Mondays - 7:30  - Chase the Ace is coming to Garnish - Mondays, 7:30 to 8:30 at the Garnish Community Center - All procceds in aid of the Garnish Playground and Recreation Committee.


  • Garnish Volunteer Fire Dept now has Grand in the Hand tickets for sale.
    Tickets: $10 each
    Draw date: June 30, 2016
    To purchase tickets contact please contact Bonnie Intveld or any of our fireman. There are 350 tickets printed. Good luck to all who purchase and thank you for your ongoing support. We are getting closer to our goal.
    This is a licensed lottery.


  • Posted  May 6 - Notice to Members of Garnish - Point Rosie Trail Association - Anyone who has lobster tickets unsold and do not intend to buy should return them to Denise or Tracey, ASAP.  We have buyers. Please return tickets or payment ASAP.  If you not return them we, we expect payment in full. 


  •  May 4, 2016   - Anyone who is over 55 and is interested in staying in Garnish after they  downsize from their present family home, are encouraged to return the Senior Retirement Accommodation Form to Council Office ASAP.  This is a process to collect information to determine is if there is a need for such accommodation in Garnish.  The information collected will be presented to investors who will, hopefully, be  convinced that there is a market, and be persuaded to come here and develop residential units.  Council's involvement will be no more than to expedite the development process, perhaps going as far as to donate land already owned by the Town to  the investor.  The Town owns land on Sunset Drive near the Lions Center and on Pardy's Point Road. This process has absolutely nothing to do with any member presently sitting on Council.  This might be our last best chance to create opportunities for Garnishers to stay in town well after we are too old to shovel snow or mow grass.  If  this might be you, now, or ten years from now, please consider returning the form to Ruth without delay.

  • Council Advisory - Mayor and Council are very concerned at the news below.  If Garnish is to have a public library closer than Marystown after next year, Council will have to find the funds to keep open the one now in our Council Building. This will mean taking funds away from some other project or service that needs it, or a raise in taxes.   We encourage residents to state their opposition to the closure by contacting the Provincial Government as stated below. 

 

  • Garnish Library Slated for Closure:  Here is your chance to make your opinion known - In case you have not heard, the Provincial Government plans to close the Garnish Library next year.    Two comments below posted from Facebook might encourage you to state your objection.

Carlson Stella Grandy I am amazed at how Mr. Kirby is trying to convince us that closing our library in Garnish and having us go to Marystown to avail of the library there is a positive story. Meanwhile, him and his government will add close to twenty cents on a liter of gasoline which will negatively impact the amount of driving that we will do. It would be much better if they had taken the pot of money that was left for public libraries and reduced the hours that they were open. At least we still would have the service in OUR community. I am not buying what Mr. Kirby is trying to sell us regarding library services. I am calling on our MHA to come and meet with the people of this community so that she can take our concerns back to Dale Kirby, Dwight Ball, and Cathy Bennett. To do nothing will indicate your commitment to the people of this community

And

Elroy Grandy Everyone who enjoys reading should follow Carlson's lead. We can contact our MHA at carolannehaley@gov.nl.ca and the Minister of Education at dalekirby@gov.nl.ca
