OPP Constable Dave Mowbray addressed community safety and how to keep your home safe when you are away. He suggested that we all lock our vehicles and homes. When away, have a friend or neighbour pick-up your newspapers and plow your driveway. You should put your lights on timers to make your home look occupied. He also spoke on the 4 Wheeler by-law and what it contained. He noted that all riders MUST have a valid drivers license, vehicle license, ownership and insurance. They are allowed on Loyalist Parkway ONLY between October 1st and May 1st during sun-up and sun-down. They cannot have any passengers and must drive at a maximum of 50kph in an 80kph zone.
Councilor Peggy Burris addressed the current rumour of our post office closing as false. She asked that attendees sign a petition from some unknown group to keep our current electoral boundaries intact.
Bill Kemp, on behalf of himself and wife Juanita, thanked CARA on behalf of its membership for nominating their Dixie Lee Chicken & Seafood Restaurant and Country Farm Market for a Quinte Business Achievement Award. With nearly 75 potential candidates, they won New Business of the Year 2009.
Many new members signed up and a great number in attendance left comments about what they would like to see CARA do in the coming year. A big thankyou to the Masons and all who attended.

Beautiful new Village of Consecon signs erected.
Well it has been awhile since we were tasked with erecting new signs along Loyalist Parkway to let everyone know where Consecon was, but I am pleased to announce the wait is over. There are two beautiful new signs along the highway announcing our presence. As good as they look during the day, vehicles cruising along the road will see us glowing in the night.
The signs were paid for by the members of the Consecon and Area Ratepayers Association and they would like to thank the following for their participation;
