A big thank you for your support for the 2017 Fuel Supper - it was a success and ran very smoothly due to Centreville Good Neighbour Club organization and the much-needed help from our neighbours with peeling and cooking, parking directors and clean up to name just a few of the many jobs that go into a success supper.
As I made phone calls asking for donations, I heard, “Yes, yes, I’ll do that, I always do,” but I hear some residences were asked, “What’s a fuel supper?”
Susan Wood tells me the first supper was planned at a club meeting at Doris Foley’s home on Oct. 19, 1972 to raise funds to buy fuel for the Centreville Hall, hence the name “Fuel Supper.” Charlotte Legge reported the first supper was on Nov. 8, 1972. Pauline Harris missed working at the supper for the first time this year; that is a wonderful example of community spirit. This support for the last 45 years by both club and community members has made possible so much here in Centreville. I wonder how many more have a similar surprising record, when we stop to count?
The CDCDA has been busy having the Centreville signs repaired.
Watch the speed limit signs in Centreville - there are new speed limit signs and new speed zones of 50.
On Nov. 5, The Harvest Concert was hosted by the Centreville Baptist Church the proceeds went to the Canning and Area Inter-Church Council Emergency Fund. Performances were given by twelve groups: St. John Anglican, the Pereaux, Arlington, the Centreville, Billtown, Halls Harbour and First Cornwallis Baptists churches, the St. Lawrence Catholic Church, Union Church of Scotts Bay and the Canard Community Church groups. They each had their own style and swept the audience up with their musical contributions.
Sweat Equity is being done by some very dedicated park association members as they clear away the cut brushes in the new parking area during the last two weeks. There were dumpsters at the park and I saw Margaret, Suzanne, George and others working hard to fill them, but this weekend the bins were not available, so the brush was gathered to burn at a future date. The tree stumps will be removed next.
The next meeting of the Centreville District Park Association will be Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Centreville Hall. With support, the much needed 2018 project will start at the park: a 75-foot BMX Bicycle Horseshoe Track, with three- and four-foot mounds. This project will provide a safer area for the riders, instead in ditches near traffic. There is much to do. Please contact George Graves, if you can help.
