Chapple is preparing to hold a flea market on Saturday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Barwick Hall.
To book a table(s), call Jackie (487-1222) or the municipal office (487-2354). The cost is $10 for the first table and $5 for additional ones.
In other news, the fitness centre will be open two nights during the summer for anyone wanting to have a look at the facility and try out the equipment.
Kelly Olson also will be on hand to give advice.
Dates for the above will be posted, or call Heather Oltsher (487-2253) for more details.
You’re also invited to join in a two-week activity challenge June 4 and June 18. You can sign up for activities, with forms available at the municipal office or Roseberry Runway.
Return your forms to be eligible for prizes. The sponsors are Chapple Rec, the Roseberry Runway, and Healthy Communities Coalition.
If your water is supplied by the Barwick water treatment plant, then you can contact this office for a free quarterly report of its water testing results.
Also remember to use water wisely. The more water consumed increases the cost of operation at the plant, which will increase your monthly rate.
A reminder the Chapple museum is now open for the season. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday only until the end of June, then extended to Tuesday through Saturday in July and August.
New exhibits are on display, including the history of logging in Chapple, items donated by Melynchuk Store, and display of photographs in “Homestead Alley.”
Call Bill/Emily Clink (487-2221) or Rilla Race (487-2655) regarding the museum. Viewing of St. Paul’s Heritage Place also can be made by calling the above.
Chapple Day is planned for Sunday, Aug. 12 this year. It once again will feature the popular Chapple Canoe Race, as well as activities at the Steve Both farm and events at Riverfront Park, including a fish fry.
The museum also will be open that day.
Canada Day celebrations will be held in Barwick on Saturday, June 30 starting at noon with the parade from the municipal office. Saturday and Sunday will see fastball and slo-pitch tournaments.
Chapple Rec is looking for new members, who are required to keep this committee active. Call the municipal office if you want to help out.
Finally, Reeve Cecil Wilson, councillors, and office staff extend a big thank you to David Olgivie’s grade four/five classes for the wonderful job in cleaning up the village.
Also the same big thanks to the local Boy Scouts for cleaning up the R.V. park.
