MAYOR’S MESSAGE – COME HOME YEAR 2016
The Town Council of Woody Point would like to express their most sincere appreciation to the organizing committee of the Come Home Year Festivities.
They have gone beyond the call of duty to make this event most memorable for everyone. Although many people have contributed to its success, it is necessary to highlight the outstanding effort of all concerned:
Crystal Blanchard for her leadership and the organization of the Meet and Greet.
Ida Noel for the wonderful Variety Show…wasn’t the talent incredible?
Debbie Humphrey for the Memory Tree and Board for passed loved ones.
Sharon Howell Tatchell and Glenda Wilton for the Kitchen Party and the Meet and Greet.
Wavey Osmond who was involved in all of the above.
Elton Howell and Perry Burden for the Grand Finale on Saturday. I’m sure the reunion of “Uncle Harry’s Bar Band” will be remembered for years to come. It must be noted that these two gentlemen seemed to be everywhere, especially if physical labour was required.
Jack Parsons for emceeing the Meet and Greet.
Jenny Parsons for emceeing the Variety Show.
Tony Berger for the Yaffle of Bonne Bay storied and songs.
The Pentecostal Church (Lisa Frampton) for the Singspiration.
The GBS Recreation Committee for the Jiggs Dinner.
The Funtastics 55+ Club (Marina Boone) for a delicious breakfast.
The Parsons Family for the Musical tribute.
Alison Normore and Barb Daniel and their many “Beautifiers” for the flowers, painting and clean-up. The Town looks very nice.
The Town Staff also played a major role in the preparation for this event, Jacqueline, Roger, Cyril, Bill and Bailey, your efforts are greatly appreciated and to anyone else who may have helped in any way I thank you so much. Your help was very much appreciated.
Of course the Come Home Year 2016 would not have happened without the continued support of our sponsors. Thank you all.
As I stated during the Meet and Greet, our town always was, and remains to be, a wonderful place to live. We all hope you had a wonderful time visiting with family and many long, lost friends. Have a safe trip home and come back to see us real soon.
Fred MacLean
Mayor
Town of Woody Point

ATTENTION PARENTS OF WOODY POINT AND GBS:

Please, Please tell your children to not climb the water tower in Woody Point. Youth were observed Friday night (we have pictures of the youth) climbing the tower and standing on the top)

It is not safe to do so, the ladder support system is failing, the roof is not supported by anything inside…should the ladder fail or the roof collapse, your child is dead…I can’t put it any other way…it is not safe to be there….Please tell your children to stay away from the tower!!!!

We will be putting something in place to prevent further access as well.

Attention residents of Woody Point, Winterhouse Brook and Curzon Village

Please remember to cover your garbage or place it in a garbage box or can. We have plenty of crows and sea gulls flying around this year who are more than happy to tear your garbage apart looking for food.

The garbage contractor is not responsible for picking up any garbage strewn about by the birds.

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

________________________________________________________

REMINDER TO THE RESIDENTS OF WOODY POINT, CURZON VILLAGE AND WINTERHOUSE BROOK

If you are doing renovations to the outside of your home, shed, or business please remember that you have to apply for a permit to do so. Failure to do so can result in a stop work order being issued.

You can visit the Municipal Documents tab  for a full list of what activities require a permit. You can also call or visit the office for further information.

________________________________________________________

Attention residents:

Now that we have had our clean-up day and much garbage was removed from the town (Thank you for helping to keep our towns clean) we ask that you refrain from putting large items out with your household garbage until after Labour Day.

The reason for this request is due to the large amount of regular garbage that will be produced over the summer with all the businesses around town open and more summer homes being open. Last summer a second truck had to be used on several occasions due to the large amount of garbage. We are hoping to avoid the use of second trucks this year as this would help to keep the garbage costs down for everyone.

I thank you in advance for your consideration of this matter and would like to advise that there will be a fall clean-up day after Labour Day.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the town office.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the reminder! I had meant to post this earlier…hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know.

      Jacqueline Blanchard
      Town Manager

  2. Dave Stromberg says:

    Great news about the recycling program!

  3. L Dolmage says:

    CONGRATS Jacqueline. My hope is that the town will be cleaned-up. The garbage
    left in fields consisting of disabled vehicles and other things is not very attractive in
    such a beautiful area. The hills and water are so relaxing and inviting . It would be
    much more appealing to the tourists and the local residence. I am a former resident
    and visit yearly. Wishing you all a great year and much success. L Dolmage

  4. Woody Point says:

    Thank you for your kind words about Woody Point. Clean-up around town is an ongoing issue that the council is addressing on a daily basis. We are actively promoting a cleaner and tidier town to all our residents. It is a beautiful area and we want to enhance on that beauty.

    Regards,
    Jacqueline

  5. Bill Roberts says:

    What time are the council meetings. I do not see it on the calendar.
    Thank you.
