The good news is merry Christmas, happy holidays and peace on earth, good will to all!
On Monday, Dec. 5, the Lanark Village Association had its last meeting of the year. It was election night and the hall filled with members and some who were not members. It was good to see so many show up, for whatever the reason.
We had our voting. The votes were counted by Tony Johnson, and overseen by Capt. Brad Segree and our new District 2 County Commissioner Cheryl Sanders. The results for the two open governors’ spots were Mike Salyer, the LVA’s boat storage manager, and Bobbi Trinkett, chairwoman of the ways and means committee. Both were excellent choices, and were already volunteering for the organization. Congratulations to them and us.
The meeting also produced some offers from the membership to help with some of our organizational needs for the coming year. The more people step up to help, they will get to understand the true purpose of the Lanark Village Association. We will be calling on you.
On Saturday, Dec. 3 there was a training meeting for Firefighters ONLY. All who came were suited up. We now have several persons from the community going through the training. They cleaned the building and the equipment, cranked the trucks (and put them away in the garages) and were trained. Thank you to all for stepping up in this capacity to bring our Lanark-St. James Volunteer Fire Department back to us. If you are in the area and want to make a difference, please sign up to fight fires, please come to the next published training, or contact Mr. Robert Amick, St. James/Lanark Village Fire Department coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The American Legion Post #82, at 2316 Oak Street in Lanark Village, will be having a Holiday Ugly Sweater Karaoke Party on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m. There will be snacks, drink$ and prize$ and a whole lot of fun! The public is welcome!
