On Friday, September 28, 2001 approximately 40 people gathered to witness the dedication ceremony for Einarson Park. After O’Canada was played by the Langruth School Band (led by Doris Sigurdson) greetings and words of congratulation were brought by Glen Cummings (MLA for Ste. Rose), Isaac Wiebe (Reeve for R.M. of Lakeview), Philip Thordarson (Councilor), and Claude Thorsteinson (Icelandic National League).
Mrs. Gudrun Einarson and her daughters Doreen, Joan and Verna spoke to the crowd about the history of the block that contains Einarson Park and unveiled the new park sign. The Langruth School Band then played “Community Spirit.”
The ceremony was followed with a lunch prepared by the women of Grace Lutheran Church at the Community Hall.

Hollywood Beach Rocks!
Have you ever wondered what to do with those big rocks on your land? The Hollywood Beach Citizens Committee(H.B.C.C.) has the solution for you as we want the large rocks that you don’t want.
The H.B.C.C. is composed of the members: Lois Wilson, Susan Wilson, Marlene Craik, Holly Kelemen, Marie Leclerc, Wendy Olson and Phyllis Thordarson. Our purpose is to ensure the preservation and restoration of Hollywood Beach.
The first project the H.B.C.C. wants to address is the control problem of vehicles driving on the grassed recreation and sand beach areas.
The H.B.C.C. presented its case and has received permission from our municipal council to go ahead with a rock control project this fall. This is an after harvest project which will organize the collection and placement of rocks in a line barrier to ensure the safety of the public on the beach’s recreation areas. The project will be done in stages. This fall we hope to rock the north end of the beach.
As you look at your land this fall please remember the H.B.C.C. wants your rocks. Contact Phyllis at 445-2323 for more information. The H.B.C.C. welcomes new members to its committee.
