Carmanville Habitat Committee Beach Cleanup


On Saturday, June 4, 2016, the Carmanville Habitat Committee (CHC) sponsored its first beach cleanup, in recognition of World Oceans Day. This day is celebrated annually, on June 8th. The idea is to create awareness of ocean pollution. This year's theme was "Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planet" with the focus on reducing plastic pollution, which harms many aquatic species. More than a dozen volunteers, including several committee members and the mayor, Keith Howell, met at the government wharf Saturday morning.


Volunteers spent three hours picking up garbage and debris along the north side of Carmanville Harbour. In this short time period, over 60 bags of garbage were collected, along with numerous larger items such as chairs, artificial Christmas trees, TV's, etc. 


The Carmanville Harbour Authority provided refreshments to the volunteers following the cleanup. In addition DFO supplied the CHC with work gloves, reusable shopping bags, back packs and pencils to distribute to the volunteers in appreciation for their efforts. 


The CHC would like to thank all those who volunteered in any way to make this beach cleanup a success. We look forward to sponsoring additional beach cleanups in the future. By keeping our beaches free of plastics and other debris, we can ensure a healthier ocean and a healthier planet.

The 50/50 Escalating Ticket Draw that was previously held at Davis Clover Farm on behalf of the Carmanville Habitat Committee will now be sold at G & M Services. Ticket Lottery License # is 14-10032600LT.


All persons who previously purchased a ticket will keep the same number you were originally assigned. Your ticket stubs have been kept in the box and your name is assigned to the corresponding number. If you have lost/misplaced your ticket stub and don’t know your number, you can call the town office at 534-2814.


Any new person who purchases a ticket will be entered into the current weekly draw. You will receive a ticket stub with your number on it and the ticket part with your name and corresponding number will be placed in the box for the weekly draws. Your name will be recorded next to that number in the binder and as you pay the $2.00 weekly the ticket sale will be recorded in this book.


If your number is drawn and you paid for the week of the draw, you will receive 50% of the ticket sales for that particular week or 50 % of the total escalated amount. If your number is drawn and you did not pay for the week of the draw, the money is not paid out and will escalate weekly until a number is drawn that has paid for the week of the draw.
