Bayview Springs Forward

Not waiting around for good things to happen in the jobs market, Bayview Water & Sewer District is donating land for a community garden. Residents are urged to donate seeds, plants for setting out later, and above all, your labor. Seeds and plants can be dropped off at the Bayview Mercantile. Write your name on the donations which will then make you eligible to share in the product grown. Questions can be directed to Linda Williams, Secretary at the Water & Sewer Department at her home number. 683-4020. Knife River donated the top soil and equipment donated by H & E Equipment Rental. Step up, folks.

The Bayview Community Council has collected in excess of $500 dollars recently for the Athol, Bayview, Careywood Food Bank. Last fall, 1200 pounds of food was donated, along with $200 cash. This time of year is tough on the food banks, since most people think about giving around the holidays, then stop thinking about it. With unemployment at a level not seen for decades, if not our entire lifetimes,more people are going to need our help than ever before.

The return of Liz & Larry Justus returning from Wellton, Arizona, marks the reopening of Lakeland RV Park, adjacent to the Bayview Post Office. Many eople come back every year, so if a reservation is needed, act quickly. With the Boileau's RV park turning into a parking lot and the old Bayview Trailer Park being closed, RV parking is almost extinct. Lakeland R.V. can be reached at:683-4108.
