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.
