  • At a public meeting in the Garnish Community Center held Tuesday, July 21, a committee was struck to modernize the town's playground.  Over the next few days, every household will receive a letter introducing the committee and outlining their objectives.  The committee will be asking for support, financially and otherwise, over the next year or so.  Council has pledged support and ask that the general public, including businesses, do the same.  Let's do it for the kids.

  • Property Owner Advisory -  If you claim to own land within town limits, and it is not registered with the town for Tax purposes, you should do so  immediately.   Any properties that are not registered, presently not being taxed, and which has not been occupied or improved in anyway since 1994 is about to become the subject of a Crown Land Application by the town.


  • Fred Dodge on "How Garnish Got its Name".  It will make you smile.  See it here.


  • Council 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.
