Outer Battery booklet available next week

Many of us had our thoughts recorded by Annie & Lisa last summer, or by Angie & Judy this Fall, for an Outer Battery booklet.  We are pleased to inform you that the book ‘Out to the Battery’, stories and pictures from current and former residents, will be available later this week or early next week.  150 copies are being printed for distribution and sale.
·  Every person interviewed will receive one free copy of the book.  
·  Any households not represented in the list of interviewees will also receive one free copy.
·  Board members will distribute copies to interviewees and households.
Remaining copies will be sold at $12.00 each. Proceeds go to the Outer Battery Neighbourhood Association. Please get your orders in fast because we expect these to sell like fish cakes.
Contact for copies:
Chris Brookes [] or at 576-0359
Angela Drake 722-0283; Joanne Butler 687-2046
Thanks to our two folklore students from Memorial University (Lisa Wilson and Annie McEwen), to all of you who did interviews and provided pictures, and Board members who did supplementary interviews, and assisted with editing, layout and printing logistics.
If you have any questions about distribution please address them to Chris or Ange.

Parking lot fill dumping

The construction crew has been dumping their fill onto Edgecombe's property to the East, covering part of the stone wall.  Concerns have been raised about whether they have permission, whether the City has given a permit for this, whether there has been any environmental check of the fill for contamination with PCBs etc, and whether there has been any planning for when the fill slumps further down with runoff, etc.  After some residents complained, they have stopped dumping there today.  City Works Dept has been asked about it.  The construction has also destroyed much of what was left of the shed.
