for your support - Garnish Lions
Club has opened a trust fund account in support of Gary Warren
/ Patricia Legge at the Bank of Nova Scotia, Marystown.
Early in April, Gary is to travel to Halifax for a kidney transplant
with his cousin, Patricia Legge, daughter of Bert and Dora
Cluett, being the donor. The ordeal is very expensive due to
transportation and extensive stay close to hospital for Gary. Anyone
wishing to make a donation can do so at any branch of the Bank
of Nova Scotia or to any member of the Garnish Lions Club.
Tickets are on sale for two sets of fabulous prizes
donated by local businesses and indivuals. Tickets are
$5 each and are available from Dora and Bert Cluett and for purchase
at Marystown Mall. Draw Date is April 12 on CHCM Radio.
Your support is much appreciated. Many thanks to those who
donated the items for the

Advisory - The Provincial 911 System is now active. Every
residence in Garnish has a street address. Your street number
should be displayed where it can bee seen on the house, or at the
end of the driveway. In an
emergency where minutes can mean the difference between life and
death, that number might save a life, possibly your own.
Council Advisory - Respect signage
- Council has placed signage around the Town's water
supply area to protect it for all residents. Some snowmobilers
and ATVers have been ignoring the signs and driving across the ice
on the pond. In a worse case, this could lead to problems that
would affect us all. Anyone using the trail to Long Pond is
expected to stay on the trail. Please respect the signage you
see in the area. You could be saving the town a lot of trouble

October 8 - Council Advisory - This notice to dog owners -
Council has received numerous complaints related
to dog owners leaving poop behind as they walk their animals around
town. Some users of the Dog Park are guilty of the same offence.
We are asking all dog owners to be considerate of other walkers by
picking up after your pet. And it is not the
responsibility of Council Staff to pick up the poop left behind in
the dog park. If dog owners fail to comply, once the area
becomes a health hazard, Council will have no choice but to close
down the park to all users. Your cooperation is expected and
Oct. 8 - Council Advisory -
Council has received no indication that the piece of land across
from the parking lot near the bridge across the Garnish River on the
right side of Water Line Road is owned by anyone.
The land is at the intersection of Waterline Road and the Long Run
Trail that goes to Sunset Drive, on the right.
Council intends to use that property to expand the parking lot for
use by trail users coming into town and for users of the Water Park. The
land to be cleared is the piece immediately before the Long
Run Trail. Anyone who has object to this project are
asked to contact Ruth at the Town Hall at 826.2330 ASAP.
You will be asked to put your object in writing.
