The Random Guardian, May 1967, 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 Mrs. Geneva Cholock in August 1962 with 250 copies available in Clarenville only, then Jean Balsom 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.
I would like to Thank Melissa Smith of Clarenville who found her grandmothers "Olive Vardy" copies of The Random Guardian and was willing to share this great find with me so that I could include them on this our website so that all could see. If you have copies of the The Random Guardian around your house please contact me if you would like them added to this website. Remember we have to keep our history alive!!
