Hats Off Carleton Place! — A Hard Wood Makeover-Before and After

Standard

Linda is known for her complaining and whining- but she does it when she feels things could be better in Carleton Place. A touch of insanity? Maybe- but no one is perfect. So, on July 31st  Linda complained about a few things again.

While I know sometimes the call of nature comes when you least expect it– there surely should have been another place to put the porta potty on the most photographed tree in Carleton Place on Lake Ave West.

Maybe it is not a huge deal to some– but honestly, if you are trying to sell the town to tourists– this is not a “good look”!

Thanks go to Joanne Henderson, Manager of Recreation and Culture who came to the rescue– and today the porta potty was moved.

Sometimes words (and apps) are not enough to express how grateful you are. The tree would like to thank Joanne Henderson with a funky tune by Sly and the Family Stone. Thanks also goes out to Nicole Guthrie!

“I want to thank you for lettin’ me
Be myself again..
Thank you!”

Now if you really need somewhere to go down by the docks.. it’s across the road.
