Arthur Lions & Arthur Optimist Renew Road Sign Contract

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. 

Members of the Arthur Lions and Arthur Optimist clubs attended the Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW) road sign at the Highway 6 north entrance to the village to mark a new five-year partnership with CSGW. The clubs are key to the increased awareness of CSGW within the community and want to continue to remind motors that they can safely report crime by calling 1-800-222-TIPS or going to Those marking the new five-year partnership include, from left, Arthur Optimist President Nick Hanson, Arthur Lion Wayne Horton, Arthur Optimist Vice-President and Treasurer Cody Rundle, Arthur Lion President Glen Cheyne, CSGW Treasurer Bonnie Facklam and CSGW Board member Rick Beazley.

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 where the public can provide information about crime safely and confidentially 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
