This is Louis Antonakos, our mayor of Carleton Place! He is extending a personal invitation to come visit us in Carleton Place, Ontario! This may be an essay about our upcoming summer events, but our town is open all year round!
There are nothing but friendly people in our town! Say hello to Jayne Henry and Shyla Williams!
Here is Liz Likuski and Lana Kokaua from the Carleton Place Soccer Club. They are looking for kids to kick the ball around! And hey, they would love to see some coaches come and volunteer too!
Of course you know our very own Jennifer Fenwick Irwin from the Carleton Place and Beckwith Museum. If you don’t recognize her, you best be taking the Missus and family down to the Museum for a visit! Tell her I said Hi! I bet you don’t know Debby Lytle from our very own Labyrinth! It is right behind the Museum. Now there is a two for one special for you!
This is our local hot tomatoe! His name is Ray Elgersma and is all about local produce. He helps out with the Neighbour Hood Tomato Community Gardens at St. Gregory’s Next Door. Talk to him about the Great Veggie Grow-Off! Who will grow the most fresh produce this year for the Lanark County Food Bank? Carleton Place or Mississippi Mills?
This is Leanne Campbell. My hand was shaking when I took this picture as Lanark Autism Support Group means a lot to me. My eldest nephew is autistic. Because of my late sister’s stance on mainstreaming her oldest child in the 80’s, other kids in the Belleville area thrive. If you think I am stubborn and outspoken, I have nothing over my sister Robin Knight Nutbrown. She fought against the powers to be so kids with autism were not dumped somewhere. She made sure they were treated just like everyone else. She was a trail blazer! God rest her soul, and Leanne– thank you!
