PROUD DAY FOR LOCAL BUSINESS OWNER

Local owner of Home Hardware, Rod Larson, was the proud recipient of the “Golden Hammer” award on October 15, 2020 which was given to him by the Retail Sales & Operations Manager for Southern Alberta, Sharmagne Ray. Rod has been in the business for 54 years so not only did he receive the Golden Hammer for 50 years but he also received the “Golden Wrench” for 54 years and he also received a special clock from the National Headquarters of Home Hardware.

Sharmagne pointed out that the Larson Family is the only family that has received three of the Golden Hammers for 150 years of commitment. Rod’s Grandfather and Father both received the award as well. Sharmagne also mentioned that the Larson family played an integral part in getting Home Hardware in Alberta.

Congratulations Rod and thank you for all you have done for the Town of Provost.

POLICY FOR BLOWN OVER CARTS

Policy for blown over carts is still the same as an overfilled bin, we will not be picking the bins up as we would not finish, the bin placement is up to the resident, so the residents are to ensure the bins remain upright in order to be collected.
