Applications can be found at the Canadian Tire website.

Programs will be offered twice weekly and will run for approximately 10 weeks (weather permitting). Please note that if the school is closed due to weather the arena will also be closed and programming will not go ahead. The answering system will be updated daily at the arena, 457-2999.
The cost of registration is $60.00 for the first child/youth in the family and $40.00 for every other child or youth or program attended thereafter. Registration will be on December 18th & 19th, 2013 at the arena; from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm. Fees must be paid in full prior on the first day of practice. Programming will start in the New Year. All parents will be notified of the start date for the programs. If you have any question or need more information, please call Joan Caines @ 709-457-2774 or Della Demoss @ 709-457-2097.

Residents of Bide Arm struggle daily due to the lack of Broadband (High-Speed) Internet. Using the computer to find information and services to improve their health, education, and employment opportunities and to stay connected with family and friends is essential. Unfortunately, residents of Bide Arm do not have access to high-speed internet services. Let’s join together and help Bide Arm get high-speed internet.

Everyone is encouraged to voice their support by contacting Mark Duggan, Bell Aliant Corporate Affairs 709-687-3136 or by email at mark.duggan@bellaliant.ca and Great Northern Wireless of Deer Lake, providers high speed services (709) 636-1020. It’s important that we express the need for our entire community of Roddickton-Bide Arm to have high-speed internet and get our concerns on the radar for the upcoming Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) where over $6M in funds will be invested to improve internet services across the province.

“Coming together is the beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is success.”
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Town of Roddickton-Bide Arm.
