LETTER: A question of civic pride

Ponoka News reader unhappy with lawn upkeep in the Town of Ponoka.

Dear Editor,

Where is your sense of civic pride?

Sunday, May 28 The Lions Club sponsored a day in the park with dog walking and they brought in search and rescue dogs and had the Ponoka Fire Department volunteers there for a barbecue. The state of the park was a disgrace.

The grass was not cut; the town flag was hanging almost on the ground and was in terrible shape; the flag poles were rusty; The bathrooms were not open until 2 p.m. and then only one.

If we cannot afford to do better than this then we had better put all building plans on hold until we can get our act together.

Come on Ponoka, we can do better than this.

Vern Dick
