Hi everyone. First, my apologies for being very slow to update the site in the last six months. I’ve been away a lot, although that shouldn’t be an excuse.
Here is a picture of a flower to make up for it.Â
The flower and the flowerbed below are at the top of the Spryfield end of Long Lake. Yesterday, councillor Stephen Adams and MLA Brendan Maguire organized a planting party to put those flowerbeds in. There has been a question for several years now about who should maintain the little strip of lawn at the end of Dentith road and the access to the lake from that side. I hear from Steve Adams that the province has now agreed to cut the grass. There are a few places to park along Old Sambro Road and keeping the grass cut and the flowerbeds maintained might make it easier to get down to the water. If you have a canoe or a kayak there is a place you could put in fairly easily.Â
In other news… Thursday, July 15 there will be a free reading with local author Darren Greer, who will read from “Just Beneath My Skin.” A story about three generations of men trying to get out of a dead-end town. Published by Cormorant Books, you can read the full synopsis here. http://www.cormorantbooks.com/9781770862555/
