Wednesday, July 76, THE LETHMID6E HfRALB 3 John Wolfe, Frances Hougen show the way in OFY plan equipment, repainting and re- pairing the shelter, erecting a new sign and keeping the grass in trim. In conjunction with the Royal Canadian Legion, the young- sters, have done a fine job of maintaining the Cenotaph at the north end of Centre St. They have been painting, re- pairing fences and keeping the grass cut. The golf volves some club project in- major work FOREMOST (Special) Op-1 enthusiatic group were active portunities for Youth meaas in repainting the playground John Wolfe and Frances Hou- gtn. They pioneered. Now seven girls and six boys are taking part. Their latest effort is the com- pletion of a "Welcome to Fore- most" sign built in rocks on the north bank of the dam at Foremost Reservoir. The giant letters, painted white, catch the visitor's attention immedi- ately on entering the village from the west. In the opinion of most Fore- most people, this particular group earns every penny of the OFY funds allotted here. The first major project was the Lions Swimming Pool. It had to be prepared for the summer season. This included draining, cleaning, sanding and repainting the pool and work on the surrounding area. The changing rooms were re- painted, outdoor equipment erected and everything made ready. The Lions club is res- ponsible for supplying all mat- erials needed, with the govern- ment paying the wages. A further Lions project was the children's playground. The sanding and repainting the old clubhouse and a general clean- up. Work around the resei-voir, of which the welcome sign was the latest endeavor, has been exlensive. Tree planting, grass cutting and general mainlain- ence would be enough. How- ever, plans also tentatively in- clude tlie installation of a play- ground, building a bridge and path across the ditch, raking and clean up around the camp kitchen area and shore clean up. The plans for the curling rink included repainting of the inter- ior and repainting the boards in the skating rink. Numerous miscellaneous pro- jects are also receiving atten- tion. The Foremost Cemetery, which underwent a landscap- ing job recently, Is being wat- ered and cut by the group. The ball park Is being main- tained in playing condition at all times, signs are being re- painted in various parts of the community. Bleachers have been repainted, benches In the streets are receiving similar paint jobs and boulevards are being planted with trees as necessary, and maintained. The project tinishes at lha end of August but already Fore- most is reaping enormous bene- fits from the well directed in- dustry of this group of people. A spokesman for the group Indicated that many of tha projects have now been com- pleted apart from routine main- tenance. When the end of Aug- ust comes, a detailed report of the group's activities will be sent to the government, and a final report must be sent in at the end of the year.
