Pokemon Go Carleton Place Update– I Heard it Through the Grapevine





Last night our wonderful Joyce Murray, from Murray’s Furniture & Flea Market, texted me to say she had been driving around Carleton Place with her daughter playing Pokemon Go— The local Pokemon seems to be hiding out near all our local Carleton Place landmarks with plaques.

That includes: our local churches, Carleton Place Farmers Market, the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum etc. What is amusing is that one of our local residents was allegedly seen out and about their home very perplexed as to why there were so many people congregating near their home with bikes and cars late at night.

Maybe that Manitoulin Chocolate Works 9-5 business would look good right about now? Just saying..:)

Here is an example of local participation and how things seem to work these days. It has to be different– it has to be catchy– and people will come out. Yesterday, throngs of people were seen out and about the museum and the library.. this is all it takes.. something new.. and something exciting.–Participate in your town- embrace your town.

Go pay a visit to Murray’s Furniture & Flea Market and say Hi to Joyce.. A true Carleton Place icon..
