Last week I announced the Lanark Village Clean-Up on April 1; it is for real, no April Fools Day here. This is a very important event for the Village when Lanark and the county pitch in to clean up in the Village those areas that need cleaning up and to help those who are unable to take care of it themselves. Lanark Village is greatly made up of older residents, who don’t have the ways or means to manage themselves.
We will gather at 8:30 a.m. at Chillas Hall to receive gloves and bags from the county. Some of us walk, dragging our bags behind and others drive around with their trucks and trailers to pick-up the bigger items. Please, please join us in this effect. Thank you!
On Monday, April 3, the Lanark Village Golf Club will hold their monthly “blow out” sale across from Chillas Hall. Times are from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.-ish. They have great stuff and are willing to deal. Please come out to support the club who maintains the course (Lanark Village’s front yard). Donations will be gladly accepted at this time. Thank you for your support.
Also on Monday the monthly meeting of the Lanark Village Association will be at Chillas Hall, starting at 7 p.m. The agenda has not yet been set.
For those of you who may have noticed the work being done on the property on the corner of Oak and Warren, this property belongs to the Lanark Village Association. The property is being prepared for short-time storage. After going through the cost of the repairing of Chillas Hall from a sewage flood and COVID-19, the Association feels that we may be able to move forward with this project. This will be a benefit that will hopefully help the Village’s ongoing parking problems. The building is to be another project. One step at a time. It all takes money and memberS who care. More on that as it progresses.
Soon two of our beloved “snowbirds” will be leaving to return to the North. Janis Rinehart and Pat Bott have served the community well through the years that most of us were not here. Thank you sweet ladies and we will be looking for you to come back next season.
Have a blessed Good Friday!
We Still Need Firefighting Volunteers: Any questions should be directed to Robert Amick, [email protected] Lanark Area Is Still Under A Burn Ban. Again, it has nothing to do with the weather. It has to do with not having a functioning fire department.
Please contain your garbage, the bears are still very active and those of you who are not taking care of your garbage are feeding the bears. Those of you who leave your cans on the right-of-way welcome others to throw their garbage in unprotected, the bears get them and your neighbors have to pick up the mess. It is only a matter of consideration for your neighbor. Thank you.
