Bear Update

I have nothing to report! I have not received any emails, updates or news for two days and have not seen bear chatter on social media. There were several garbage bins out overnight on Monday night and nothing that looked like bear damage on Tuesday morning. Hoping this means our friend ‘Willie the Bear’ (thank you Carrie for naming our neighbourhood bear) has found a better midnight buffet elsewhere.

Thank you to Linda Seyler, Janet Harris and Mary Lynn Hill for creating and posting the Bear posters throughout the neighbourhood.

Thank you to Anne Thornton for sharing this very good article. It’s not a long read and worth the time:

Play is casual and fun. We are far from professional, so all levels are welcome.

If you would like to learn more, you can give Anne a call on 238-1470, or just show up at the courts Monday or Wednesday. Please bring your own water.


Ticks and Lyme Disease

From Kate Brown:

Our dog, Molly just tested positive for Lyme disease. We just wanted to give everyone a heads up because our area is particularly bad for ticks. We learned that it would be wise to maintain medications for fleas and ticks year round plus we are requesting that our dog receive a Lyme disease vaccine as she will be prone to future infections.

We walk on the roads, stay on the paths, have not been to the Pinery and Molly is never off leash. All that said, we are certainly more cautious of our own protection as well. Take care everyone!
