The Random Guardian, January 1965, Page 1

The Random Guardian was a mimeographed monthly paper publishing local news, birthdays, social, personal and club news, a religious column and advertisements for Clarenville and area. The guardian was started by Jean Balsom cira 1963, then Geneva Cholock took it over and then the last know publishers were Austin and Audrey Hynes who ran it until about 1970 or 71. The Packet which was established 1969 became the official community newspaper and the Guardian folded soon after the packet began.
