Update Friday, June 3: Janie Graham of the Bala in Bloom committee is pleased to report that the committee’s canoe that went missing was returned, anonymously, today.

The Bala in Bloom committee placed and old cedar strip canoe for planting in front of the Bala Community Centre on Tuesday, May 24. An hour later it was gone. Volunteers with Bala in Bloom say it went missing about 1 pm that day.
Now they want it back, no questions asked. They ask the community to share this call for help and request that whomever took the canoe simply place it back in front of the Community Centre.
The canoe was donated by Bala resident Eva Moore.
