Motorists heading north on Highway 6 in Arthur (Wellington North) will see the Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW) road sign for five more years.
The sign, erected in partnership with Arthur Lions and Arthur Optimist clubs, was installed two years ago. The clubs decided they wanted to extend their support of the sign partnership with $2,500 for a five-year term.
CSGW Treasurer Bonnie Facklam and Board member Rick Beazley thanked the Lions and Optimist representatives, stating support from community groups helps ensure the success of the program. In this instance, the sign bears the toll free number 1-800-222-TIPS and the program website csgw.tips where the public can provide information about crime safely and confidentially 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
