As a very early sign of spring I am sorry to announce that our outdoor rink is now closed for the season.  Hopefully a great many of you enjoyed this amenity.  

Keep in mind that the Hall and Kitchen facilities at the Community Grounds is available for rental to host your meetings, family reunions, birthday parties, etc. For info call Barb Jowett @ 613-878-1566.  This is your community hall, make use of it.

Summer will come.  Did you know that there is a lawn bowling club which is closely associated with the Galetta Community Association.  Did you know that the sport of lawn bowls is suitable for all levels of fitness as a great way to be active, is very sociable, is inexpensive and the rules are simple.  So, whether you are eight or eighty-eight why not come and give lawn bowls a try.  At the very least the sunshine and fresh air will do you good.  For more information about the Galetta Lawn Bowls Club feel free to contact the president, Russell Oatman at 613-623-9641.  

The Galetta Community Association is known for its FALL RUMMAGE/FLEA MARKET/GARAGE sale held each October.  First and foremost we want to thank everyone who worked long hours to ensure we were ready for the event.  And thanks to all who came and shopped ‘til they dropped.  We appreciate every effort made.  Thanks to this event we were able to contribute to the West Carleton Food Bank, Grove Building Fund and the Tornado Relief Fund.  These funds also help us to keep our buildings and grounds in good shape.  Now for the BUT.  Our worker numbers are diminishing and aging out so that we all move slower.  In order to keep going to the standard we have been accustomed to we need more manpower.  If you can give us some of your time and effort, we will be able to continue.  We would appreciate you contacting us at galettaca@yahoo.com if you are willing to pitch in to keep this popular event happening.  Let us know what you can offer and when you would be willing to help and how we can contact you. This can be a fun event to stage if many hands make light work.
