So what’s the difference with the sign? Yes, The original sign was hand painted, this one has vinyl stickers on top of blue paint. But what else is different?


Gal MacDonald asked:
Should we restore our very own Olympia Restaurant sign as it is part of downtown Carleton Place history? Do we ever stop trying to save memories?


Should The Olympia sign be restored in Carleton Place? How far should we go to keep history alive?

  • In the Carleton Place Restaurant Review.. someone said that they were not in favour of using tax payers dollars to restore the Olympia sign as it had been closed since 2001. I agree.. and this is what I said..
  • I have never been behind anyone using any tax payers money to do something like this. Anyone that knows me knows I always do things from the heart– and assume others do in some respects too. I am going to post a story tonight that is going to blow your socks off. I am just a firm believer that we have so much to offer in this town.. and so much MORE than the history of Roy Brown but (let’s not take away from what this man did)— BUT if you have been following my stories on The Tales of Carleton Place every night– I have only touched the edge of what we have to offer tourists here in Carleton Place. But having places papered up for years does not make the Main Street look good or help the finances of the town. Of course neither does shopping or supporting restaurants in Kanata. It’s all about bringing folks to CP for me. I have people all around the world reading about CP- Would love to exchange that into dollars of tourism for the town.
