With a Little Photographic Help — The Friendship Club of Carleton Place



Today it’s a peaceful park behind town hall, with a fountain, benches and a few plaques. In the 1980’s, this building hugged Town Hall tightly and housed the Senior Citizen’s Friendship Club and before that Carleton Place Public Utility Commission. There is a binder full of photos from The Friendship Club at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. If you would like to see it lease contact the museum and they will be happy to show it to you.



The majority of the Carleton Place & District Youth Centre on Mill Street was demolished in early October. The building is also remembered as the old Fire Hall. “The remainder (was) renovated into a delightful building housing public washrooms,” LeBlanc stated, “and when completed, this new public gathering place will feature floral displays, seating and chess and checkers, all under sails for shade.”-NEWS JAN 23, 2014
