Tuesday, March 16, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - 3 Community hall repairs needed CARMANGA Y - The first year of the Carmangay district recreation area has seen progress. A survey was taken early in 1970 to determine what the people in different age groups would like to do in the line of sports, hobbies and other areas. The lack of a good community hall has been of great concern to the district. The community use of the school or major repairs to the existing facilities has been discussed with the county school committee, the teachers, janitor, and clubs of the community many times this year. The outcome of these talks will determine the use of the capital grant for the recreation area and further study of this topic will continue into 1971. Card parties or family nights were held. The children and young people were shown films or played games while the adults enjoyed card games. A hobby day was held in March. The community hall was filled to capacity with displays of handiwork. to raise money for the first year's operation a walkathon was held in April. This was a most successful community undertaking. One of the main objectives was to provide swimming facilities for the community. Citizens were very disappointed when the department of public health would not al- low a portable swimming pool for the district. As a result the citizens purchased a used school bus and the child.'in were taken to the Champion pool for the summer months. Due to the interest of the Hobby Day, it was decided to hold a fair in the fall. The recreation board set up a sub-committee to oversee this until the agricultural society was formed. The number and quality o� the exhibits was far beyond the organizers' hopes. Credit goes to the great interest taken by the committee that set this up. At the same time the Village of Carmangay celebrated its 60th anniversary. A civic luncheon, sponsored Sanitation ruling sought by board CRANBROOK (Special)-East Kootenay Union board of health chairman, Alderman Grace Brock of Fernie, on behalf of her board, has requested within 60 days a ruling from the Provincial Pollution Control Board chairman on boat sanitation and mechanical operation discharges for both Kootenays.

Ferry service continuous half - hour shuttle of car - passenger ferries on arterial route across Kootenay Lake between Balfour and Queen's Bay.

Most small lakes outside main channel lakes which include the imminent Libby Pondage and Kootenay Lake, drain into the Kootenay at some point, and the pooled pollutants continue down the Columbia River from Castlegar.
