Barwick planning Canada Day activities

Canada Day celebrations will be held in Barwick this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The mini parade will begin at noon Saturday starting from the municipal office and winding up at the ball park area. Co-ordinators ask you to register at 10:30 a.m. for judging.
Doug Giles from Rainy River will be on hand with his sound system and lead the parade.
Gary Judson is in charge of the parade while Heather Oltsher will make sure other Canada Day activities run smoothly.
“[It’s] a wonderful way to spend the weekend,” noted Oltsher.
“There will be a full slate of teams at the fastpitch [tournament],” she added, including local teams from the Rainy River District Fastball League as well as Dryden and Steinbach.
The final will go Sunday around 6 p.m.
Slo-pitch action also is planned but Oltsher was not quite sure of their schedule.
In other news, although the Northwest Ontario Recycle Association no longer is doing curbside pickup of recyclables as of July 1, it is still encouraged.
Chapple residents are being requested to be put recyclables in clear garbage bags for disposal by the local dump. If you are using coloured garbage bags for recycling, please clearly mark the bag.
KGS has hired David Hyatt as a summer student. He will be interviewing people with wells, inspecting wells using a standard checklist, and compiling the results.
He also will assist in hydrogeological investigations as required.
Watch for upcoming info on this year’s Chapple Days planned for Aug. 9-10. There will be something at the Both farm, the annual canoe race, fish fry, pontoon boat rides, and other events at the waterfront.
