The Lanark Village Golf Club had a great yard sale. Thank you all who donated, vvolunteered and bought! We could not have done it without you. Some of our supporters come several times a day, everyday, to shop and it is fun to visit with them. All proceeds go to the maintenance and upkeep of the course and medical heliport. Without support, the course could become a forest; the curb appeal and the medical heliport will be lost. The club would love to see more people enjoying the course for golf and becoming members.
Lanark has a very important day coming up. Veteran’s Day! American Legion Post 82 Camp Gordon Johnston, Lanark Village will be hosting a special Veteran’s Day ceremony and celebration on Friday, Nov. 11 with the ceremony starting at 4 p.m. They are combining their hamburger night, at 5 p.m. with this special event. Free burger dinner for all Veterans! The public is invited to share in this opportunity to honor our veterans and say Thank You for Your Service.
The Lanark Village Golf Club will be having their monthly meeting on Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. in Chillas Hall. We will be sharing the hall (find us behind the curtain doors) or come to Thirsty Thursday and we can have a dinner meeting.
Thirsty Thursday is every week starting at 5 and is just as much fun as Wine Down Wednesday, which has been replaced with Bingo (every week opening their doors at 6 p.m.). Both events are open to the public.
Lanark Village Association monthly meeting will be delayed until Nov. 14. Please attend, become a member and learn what we are all about. We will also be discussing board appointments and important issues in our community. Please come to the meetings to find out about the association, it is the best way to get correct information. As members, you will receive an email of the minutes of our members’ meeting.
Last week I reported that the St. James/Lanark Village Volunteer Fire Department was having a meeting on Nov. 8 for those interested. The notice from the county commissioners did not reflect that this meeting would be Only for those interested in firefighting/training. By now, you will have already heard information on this meeting,
however, maybe I will be able to let those of you who haven’t heard know next week. Questions can be directed to Robert Amick, St. James/Lanark Village fire department coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The trash can ordinance for Lanark Village (the apartments only) was not put on the agenda for the county commissioners’ meeting on Nov. 1. The next meeting is Nov. 15. I suppose that again I will have to check in the middle of the night to see if I will be going to that meeting. I want to say thank you to those residents who have shown pride in removing their cans from the street in a timely manner.
The bear sightings are getting more frequent in the village. BE BEAR WISE, Get Help, Report Conflicts, Know the Laws, 850-265-3676 and www.myfwc.com/bear. They are out there. Short-term rental owners, please advise your guests to secure garbage and you be sure to supply a secure place for garbage. We don’t want it spread all over Lanark. Thank You.
