espite the fact that
the weather did not
seem to want to co-operate this year, Minnedosa
held another successful
Fun Fest on the weekend
of July 8th to 10th.
Held annually since
1963, the festival brings a
large influx of people into
the community and offers
up a weekend of enjoyable
activities for those who attend.
“I moved here in
1979, so I’ve been here for
a while,” said Greg Lawson of Minnedosa. “I’m
impressed with it (the
street market). I was kind
of wondering how many
vendors would be here in
the rain, but there’s lots
of people here and lots
of vendors here. I think
they’ve made a good attempt to revive what was
an old idea and it seems to
be coming back. And the
vendor idea for the last
two years has been really
good. I’m impressed.”
Despite the rain,
people took part in all of
the events that had been
organized. Highlights included the parade which
included 50 registered
fl oats and approximately
20 classic vehicles, a street
market littered with vendors, a carnival and a so-

cial, as well as a variety of
activities organized for the
whole family, no matter
what their age.
Nancy Cohen, who
operated a Steeped Tea
vendor at the market, said
it was her second year
coming out to the event
from Winnipeg and plans
to come back again next
year.

“I participated in this
event last year as well and
it was a great event,” said
Cohen. “I love the town
and we stayed at a great
little bed and breakfast
in the area, so we made it
into a weekend. We were
really looking forward to
coming back this year. I
just think it’s wonderful.
I think anytime you or-

ganize events like these
that bring communities
together and creates some
summer time fun, it’s all
good.”
The variety of events
and activities organized
over the course of the
weekend ensures that
there is something for everyone. The highlight for
Sally Labelle is the parade,

Baloun First Canadian To Receive Prestigious Award
By RYAN THORPE

O

n June 25th, Ray Baloun of Minnedosa
was presented with the
prestigious T.W. Anderson award in honour of
his volunteer and charity
work. He is the first ever
Canadian recipient of the
award.
The T.W. Anderson
award has been presented
annually to a member of
the Evangelical Covenant
Church since 1985, in
recognition of the impact
they have in people’s lives
through the philanthropy.
“I was very surprised,”
said Baloun. “It was a
great feeling, but I was
more surprised than anything I guess. In Canada
there are only 30 churches
and in the states there are

850 of them, so there are
so many people to choose
from.”
Baloun was notified
he would be this year’s recipient of the award a few
days before taking a trip to
Vancouver Island with his
wife. They were in B.C. to
attend a wedding and following it and afterwards
drove down to Washington. From there, the Evangelical Covenant Church
flew them out to Phoenix,
Arizona, so that Baloun
could accept the award in
person.
During the presentation a representative of
the Evangelical Covenant
Church described Baloun
as: “A man of service, ingenuity and profound
compassion.”
Cited as reasons for

his nomination were the
charity he created called
Kernels of Hope, his work
as a volunteer Handi-Van
driver and the time he
dedicates to going around
Manitoba classrooms to
teach children about agriculture.
Kernels of Hope connects people willing to
pay for crops with farmers
willing to set aside the soil
and time to grow them.
When the crops are sold,
the federal government
then matches the yield
at a ratio of four to one.
This means for every crop
someone purchases, the
yield is five.
The money produced
from the crops is then
turned into tools, seeds
and training to help impoverished communities

around the world, with
the ultimate goal being to
help them towards selfsustainability.
Over the past ten
years Kernels of Hope has
raised over three million
dollars, which has gone
on to have a tangible impact on communities in
Liberia, South Sudan and
the Democratic Republic
of Congo.
“Everybody in life gets
different talents,” said Baloun. “They’re all so different. If you compare them
to oars or paddles in a
canoe, then everyone has
different sized ones and
everyone uses them differently. But when you all
start pulling together, then
you really can make a difference.”

Local Projects Benefit From Community Places Funding
SUBMITTED

T

he Community Places
program is marking
30 years of supporting recreational and cultural facilities across Manitoba by
providing nearly $3.6 million in grants to projects
championed by non-profit
and community-led organizations.
“Over the last three
decades, Community Places has helped thousands of

community groups make
their projects a reality,”
said Indigenous and Municipal Relations Minister Eileen Clarke. “These
projects have enriched the
lives of countless Manitobans and our new government is honoured to be
part of this milestone year.”
Riding Mountain MLA
Greg Nesbitt, said he was
pleased that a number of
very important projects
were funded in his constit-

uency. “I know the great
work organizations do for
the betterment of their
communities, and I know
these funds will go a long
way in making their projects become a reality.”
The
Community
Places program provides
funding and planning assistance to build, upgrade,
expand or acquire facilities focused on culture,
recreation and wellness.
This year, 214 community
groups will receive a grant.

As people lined the sidewalks and streets with rain
beginning to fall, the Labelle’s drove their zero-turn
lawnmowers through the streets with their two sons in
tow.
“I like the parade,” said Labelle. “It’s fun being in it.
I enjoy making the people laugh. I drive my lawnmower
really silly and make people laugh and my boys are in
the parade too. Fun fest is a really fun gathering for the
community, it’s good exposure for all the vendors, it’s
good exposure for local businesses, really for everyone
on the whole.”

Changes In Staff At Local Detachment
By DARRYL HOLYK

T

own Council met for
its regular meeting on
Tuesday, July 5th in Council Chambers. Mayor Orr
presided with councillors
Wedgewood, Saler, Skatch,
MacDowall and Luker in
attendance.
Councillor
Taylor was absent.
After some required
updates to the Fire Protection and Emergency Services bylaw for The Town,
council gave second and
third reading to the updated bylaw.
Approval was also given to the updated Municipal Emergency Measures
Operating Plan, as submitted for 2016.
With the development
of the new Ag Society/
rodeo grounds over the
past few years, a new road
has been developed over
what was previously a private driveway. As a result
of this, council gave first
reading to Bylaw #2551 to
open a municipal road.
Second and third reading
will be given at a future
council meeting.
Councillors
Luker,
Taylor and CAO Jenkins
were authorized to attend
the Watershed Tour being
hosted by the Little Saskatchewan River Conservation District later this
month.
Mayor Orr reported
on his attendance at the
recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM)
annual convention in Winnipeg. While there, he attended and/or picked up
information from Prime
Minister Trudeau’s presentation, a seminar on
Main Street and the Digital

Age and Asset Management. While at a seminar
focussed on the Building
Canada Fund, Mayor Orr
raised concerns that phase
one of the program was
for funding for existing facilities only. The Town had
applied for a new ice plant
for the current Minnedosa
Arena but was unsuccessful in being approved
funding. He explained the
MREC project and encouraged the government to
consider opening phase
two of the Building Canada
Fund to new construction
projects. The Mayor also
feels it would be valuable
to send a member of council to the FCM every year.
Council reviewed a
request from a resident
who had previously purchased a cemetery plot at
the former rate of $100.
This resident has recently
upgraded and purchased a
space in the Towns columbarium and requested The
Town buy back the unused
cemetery plot for $100. The
current cemetery policy
does not allow for such a
buy-back but following a
discussion, Council agreed
to buy the plot back as the
resident had upgraded to a
columbarium space at the
Minnedosa Cemetery. It
was also decided to review
the policy in the future.
Councillor
Wedgewood reported on a recent
Westview Estates meeting.
Of the fifteen homes available, the majority of them
are occupied and being
rented. Only two of the
homes are currently vacant. There have also been
a number of warranty issues on the brand new appliances being dealt with.

CAO Jenkins reported
on a recent meeting with
Corporal Taggart of the
Minnedosa RCMP detachment. A number of changes
in positions will be taking
place at the local detachment in the coming weeks.
Taggart has accepted a

transfer to Neepawa and
Minnedosa will be getting
a new Corporal. The local
detachment is also expecting to get a new female offi cer who is transferring
here from Virden. Jenkins
also reported that a new
RCMP Superintendent for

this area will be commencing duties in Dauphin.
A number of repairs
are underway at the arena
in order to keep it maintained until such time as
construction can proceed
on a new facility. So far,
this year, issues with the

16074gm7

arena toilets have been repaired with some needed
electrical work completed.
New entrance doors are on
order and roof patching
and repairs/patching to
walls is being considered.

Demolition Street Closures…

The countdown is on for the demolition of the stone
building at the corner of Main Street and 2nd Avenue S.E.
Heritage Co-op has entrusted the job to the expertise of
Saler’s Backhoe. Removal of the building is expected to
begin early next week, possibly Monday, July 18th. During the building demolition, a number of street closures
will be in eff ect in and around the property. The north
bound lane of Main Street will be closed in the immediate demolition area as will both lanes of 2nd Avenue S.E.
just north of the building, between the Pearson Block
and the Taylor Building. Heritage Co-op will try their best
to keep streets open whenever possible but in order to
keep the public safe, the area will be closed off during key
times of the demolition process.

Station offer…

Minnedosa Heritage Inc. (Save Our Station) met recently to discuss its next move regarding the CP station.
Previously, PC had offered a reimbursement of $75,000,
which the local committee responded to with a counter
offer of $110,000. This off er was rejected by CP and the local group submitted another offer to CP. At this point, the
reimbursement figure is not being made public due to a
confi dentiality agreement from CP. However, the local
station committee has confirmed that CP has accepted
their counter offer and that they have a “tentative agreement” with CP regarding reimbursement for their work
on the historic station. Stay tuned…

Next week’s Flyers…

Included in today’s
Tribune are three sale flyers – two
of these were scheduled to run next week but as there
will be no Tribune published on July 22nd, they are being
distributed in today’s edition. The smaller booklet style
Home Hardware fl yer is the sale flyer for this coming
week – the bottom of it states the savings are available until July 23rd. The larger Home Hardware fl yer is for a sale
that runs the following week until July 30th. Also, please
note the I.D.A. Pharmacy flyer is for a sale that runs from
July 22nd to August 4th.

EDO, Minnedosa & Area CDC

E

very rural community across the country has
its own distinct characteristics which are either
charming or annoying. I certainly found a few of each
when I arrived here in Minnedosa a year ago. How did
this come to be? Why hasn’t someone looked at this?
Who can I go to with this question? Sadly, not every
question will get answered, and over time, we lose
sight of it under the day to day function of life, resigning ourselves to the standing acknowledgement that
“that’s just how it is?”
After the initial curiosity, failing to fi nd answers
that make any rational sense, or simply nobody knows
the details that have contributed to the situation, we
may simply move on. We don’t think about it again
until we’re conversing with someone who also migrated to Minnedosa and you compare notes about
how your transition was and the things that you found
different or unique about the community. Then these
questions start to come up again and guess what? You
see their eyes light up as they remember that they had
the same curiosity upon their arrival in town and have
often wondered why that hasn’t been addressed.
You might be asking, why does this matter? Quite
simply, as we settle into out “that’s just how it is” mindset here, we forget what it’s like for a newcomer or a
visitor to the community. While we have adapted, it
might be quite disorienting and inconvenient for a
visitor to discover that they can’t pay with their debit
card at every business in town. It could be quite frustrating to try to find an open restaurant after 7:00 p.m.
on many nights of the week. They might feel that they
have entered some kind of time warp where recycling bins are not a standard fixture in public settings,
paired with garbage cans, and not as sparsely scattered, stand-alone receptacles.
Those unique discoveries, both good and bad, are
what will be shared with that visitor’s social network
when people ask about their trip to Minnedosa. Are we
confident that those findings will speak to our Valley Paradise charm, or will they dissuade visitors for coming?
It’s time for us to ask those questions again. If you

have moved to Minnedosa after living elsewhere, what
are the positives and negatives that stand out to you
within the community? If you grew up here and then
ventured out into the world for your adult life and are
freshly returning, what are you re-discovering for the
first time that changes your view of the town? Let’s ask
these questions, make a focused effort on getting answers, and see what can be done about addressing
those issues in advance of future visitors, entrepreneurs
and new residents facing the same learning curve that
we have experienced here.
But this isn’t just an exercise for new Minnedosans.
I would also like to hear from people who have lived in
and around the community for their whole lives. What
is the one circumstance that exists locally that you’ve
always felt should be addressed? If we can correct and
improve the problems and challenges that we self-identify, we’re not only addressing the needs of visitors, but
also improving our neighbourhoods for our own friends
and neighbours.
If you’ve asked the question once, let’s open the
door to ask it again, with an intention to see it answered
and, if the response is not what we need it to be, to set
the wheels in motion for a suitable remedy.

Letters to
the Editor

Dear Editor,

I

t only took my husband, Ted, sister-in-law Marilyn,
and I a few short hours to fall in love with the town
of Minnedosa. We had a great breakfast at Maushies,
ran a few errands, went to the “caboose” in a park and
received information, talked to some of the friendliest,
nicest folks we’ve ever met and visited Bison Park. All
were such pleasant and memorable experiences for
two Tennessee hillbillies and a sweet lady from Pennsylvania.
Thanks to your friendly town for the wonderful
memories on our journey to the Canadian Rockies.
Your warmth and kindness makes us hope to return to
Minnedosa in the future.
Keep up the good work and we’ll continue to “embrace our journey.”

Lyn Wofford-Beightol

Making A Better Manitoba
A

fter the first sevenweek sitting of our first
legislative session, our new
government is well on its
way to making Manitoba
the most improved province in Canada.
Our Th rone Speech on
May 16th made clear our
Progressive Conservative
government’s vision for the
initial steps we would take
to deliver a stronger economy, better services and a
brighter future for all Manitobans. Th e speech laid
out initiatives for, in part,
improving education and
health care, rediscovering
economic innovation and
restoring responsible fiscal
management.
Our Budget 2016, introduced on May 31st,
takes strong steps to correct the course of the previous NDP administration
and its reckless waste, debt
and broken trust. Moving
our province back toward
fi scal balance, our new
government has reduced
the core defi cit by $122
million while avoiding tax
increases and relieving the
burden on families by indexing income tax brackets to the rate of inflation.

The budget has also maintained the school tax rebate for seniors, reduced
ambulance fees and boosted infrastructure spending and funding in several
departments,
including
Families and Education
and Training.
With the aim of
strengthening Manitoba’s
economy, our government,
under Premier Brian Pallister’s leadership, is joining the New West Partnership to increase trade with
Saskatchewan,
Alberta
and British Columbia. The
agreement will help create jobs in Manitoba while
helping businesses expand
and reach more customers
across Western Canada. As
well, we are pushing for
greater international trade
for Manitoba by calling on
the federal government
to ratify the Trans-Pacific
Partnership.
For businesses and
their employees, our PC
government has introduced important legislation that would ensure
democracy in union certifi cation decisions. Th
e
proposed amendments to
the Labour Relations Act

would make secret-ballot
votes among workers mandatory before unions could
be certifi ed to represent
them.
Other important bills
we’ve introduced are designed to better protect
vulnerable Manitobans.
Th e proposed Protecting
Children Act calls for Child
and Family Services, police agencies and schools
to improve their sharing of
critical information when
it’s in the best interests
of a child at risk. As well,
changes to the Mental
Health Act will allow qualified people other than police officers to remain with
individuals waiting for involuntary medical examinations or psychiatric assessments, allowing police
resources to be used more
effectively.
Our government is,

in addition, guaranteeing
services to francophones
with legislation that makes
the French language a
larger part of the province’s governance. The
Francophone Community
Enhancement and Support Act better respects the
French-speaking roots of
many Manitobans.
We’re taking on these
initiatives in partnership
with Manitobans, and with
inclusion, caring, integrity,
common sense and teamwork. We’re making Manitoba better together.

Local Team Confirmed For Dragonboat Festival
SUBMITTED

T

he Minnedosa Rotary
Club has confirmed
participation as the first
local team to be entered
in the Minnedosa Dragonboat Festival hosted here
on September 17th.
The Festival, which is
being arranged by the Westman Dragonboat Association through members of
one of the teams that uses
Minnedosa Lake for weekly
practices during the pad-

dling season, has attracted
interest from a wide territory.  Teams from across the
Province are expressing interest and there have even
been some inquiries from
squads in Fort Frances, ON
and Regina, SK to participate in the event.
Minnedosa’s
widely
known reputation as the
home of western Canada’s
finest rowing and paddling
conditions is evidenced by
the early enthusiasm and
expression of interest from

Dr. Greg Perkins
Dr. Derek Papegnies

some national brands to
have representation at lakeside for the festival.
Locally, while there
have been some inquiries,
there is currently only one
local team registered for
the festival – comprised of
members of the local Rotary Club.  Rotary has been
very active this year, renewing their commitments for
Fun Fest weekend – where
they host the 400 Club Dinner, and participation at
Rockin’ the Fields.  Th ey
were also on site to volunteer with the festivities
on Canada Day with the
recreation office and are
co-ordinators for the jointly promoted Valley Fun

Colour Run next month.
“Th is sounds like a
great event that showcases
one of the community’s
best features, and we’re
excited to be a part of it,”
says Rotarian Vern May. “It
would be great to see more
local teams participating,
maybe the local Lions or
another Rotary organization are up for the challenge.  Maybe through this
event, we can foster greater
interest in the sport and
have more events like this
in the future.”

of his life as he was born
there on the family farm
in October 1896 and kept
it in the Taylor family into
the 1960s. Since that time,
the Taylor stone house
has been home to the
Wishart and Hall families
and currently operates as
Stone View Natural Bed
and Breakfast.
Stories and written
accounts passed down
through generations of
the Taylor family tell of
the stones T.D. used for
his masonry jobs coming from southern Manitoba and being hauled to
Minnedosa by oxen. Some
of these stones, squared
off and put in place by
T.D. Taylor during the
construction of the Pearson Block in 1893 will be
salvaged and reused in
various aspects, including a project planned at
the Minnedosa Museum
and Heritage Village.
Edna also hopes to save at
least one stone from the
old building in memory
of her grandfather.
T.D. Taylor was more
than just a family man,
farmer and stone mason.
He was heavily involved
in his community. He
served on Town Council
for a number of years and
was Minnedosa’s 13th
Mayor, elected in 1909.
T.D. raised prize winning
shorthorn cattle and won
the championship cup at
the Minnedosa Fair three
years in a row. His cattle
are pictured in the well
known local photograph
of the 1912 Minnedosa
Summer Fair which is
one of the only known
photographs to show the
historic Octagon Display
building in its original
condition at the local
fairgrounds. This photo
was used extensively during the restoration of the
octagon building at the
Heritage Village. T.D.
served as President of
the Minnedosa Agricultural Society from 1913 to
1916. He was also heavily involved in his church
and devoted a great deal
of time to the Minnedosa
Methodist/Presbyterian
and eventually United

Church Sunday School.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Ed Taylor
not only took over operation of the family farm but
was also greatly involved
in his community serving
as Mayor of Minnedosa
from 1962 to 1967. Some
of Ed’s other community
work included serving on
the Willow Grove School
Board, Minnedosa Parks
Board, Hugh Dyer Legion #138 and Minnedosa
Curling Club. He was also
a popular local hockey
coach and life member
of the Liberal Party. Ed
was also a strong supporter of the Co-operative movement. He joined
Minnedosa Consumers
Co-op in 1940, served on
the board for 20 years beginning in 1943 and held
the position of Minnedosa Co-op Chairman for
five years beginning in
1955.
The Taylor family is
one of Minnedosa pioneer
families and numerous
descendants continue to
reside in our community
today. T.D. Taylor came
to Minnedosa in its early
days and witnessed the
early growth and “boom”
of our community. He left
his mark on that growth in
numerous ways including
his own personal touch
as a stone mason. As the
town began to grow and

the earliest wood frame
structures were replaced
with larger, majestic stone
edifices, T.D.’s hands were
involved in carving and
placing stones in numerous Minnedosa buildings.
While some have admired his work on such
buildings as the old Pearson Block, many others
have taken it for granted,
simply walking past “just
another old stone building” without giving much
thought to who carved
those stones, how were
they put in place and who
designed the unique exterior appearance of the
building. The Pearson
Block has stood proudly at
the corner of Main Street
and 2nd Avenue S.E. for
over 120 years. Now, as
the building faces its final hours, take some time
to admire the stonework
of T.D. Taylor up close
for a final time. Once it’s
gone, it will be gone forever, thus closing another
chapter in Minnedosa’s
rich history of old historic
buildings. Following the
loss of the Pearson Block,
a new chapter of community progress will begin
as Heritage Co-op builds
a brand new administration building which will
update and modernize
Main Street Minnedosa.

wo community needs
came together to create an innovative solution
in Minnedosa this summer, and visitors to the
community will reap the
benefi t.  Last week, the
community opened a visitor information centre in
Tanner’s Crossing Park,
bringing the iconic Canadian Pacific locomotive
and caboose back to life in
the process.
The valley community
of 2,500 sees a rush of activity throughout the summer, both from the slate of
events hosted by the community as well as showcase amenities including
the popular Minnedosa
Beach.  However, without
a centralized visitor information centre, it has been
felt that fi rst time guests
may be missing out on
some of the community’s
hidden gems.  Discussions began last year at
the Tourism committee to
re-introduce a seasonal
resource for this purpose. 
The challenge was identi-

fying a location that would
best serve the purpose. 
When last operated, the
visitor information booth
was located at the rest stop
northwest of town until Council discontinued
funding for that role.
At the same time, the
community has been exploring options for an exterior renewal of the Tanner’s
Crossing train, particularly the caboose, which
has been showing signs of
wear in recent years.  Th e
park, and the train itself,
are popular attractions for
both residents and visitors
and have become central
to a community theme
that has been expanded
throughout the town.  In
recent weeks fresh paint
and replacement of win-

dows have contributed to
a refreshed look on the exterior that has generated
a great deal of curiosity to
see what’s inside.
Marrying the need for
a visitor information site
with the interest for some
renewal of the community
attraction set the stage for
a visitor information centre to be located in the
train caboose.  The centre
offi cially opened in time
for the Minnedosa Fun
Fest weekend, welcoming
dozens of visitors on opening day last Friday.  Th e
centre is open seven days a
week from 9:30 a.m to 6:00
p.m. and hosts a wealth of
local and regional resources on site, as well as some
great free Minnedosa souvenirs as well.

and went on to repeat their
victory.
Having made the team
for the second straight year,
Morris hopes to come back
home with some hardware
at the end of August. She
was selected to the team
in May, following a tryout
process that involves a series of practices and exhibition games.
Morris took lessons
out of Portage throughout
the winter to help hone her
skills and recently played
in an exhibition tournament with Team Manitoba.
Due to the fact that no other girls teams exist in the
province, the team plays
against boys.
Morris’ mother Janine,
who is on Baseball Mani-

toba’s Girl Committee, says
that the competition level
at nationals is very impressive and is evidence against
the notion that girls cannot play baseball. “We’re
really trying to promote
girls playing baseball,” said
Simpson. “In a lot of areas,
and in Brandon actually,
when girls sign up they automatically get put in girls
ball or softball or whatever.
There is still a lot of attitude
around that girls can’t play
baseball and that’s simply
not true. Manitoba is producing some good female
ball players, so we’re really
trying to promote it and
encourage all the leagues
in Manitoba to keep the
girls playing.”

timely hitting was a
recipe for success this past
weekend in St. Lazare as
the Neepawa Midgets went
undefeated to advance
to the AA Midget Provincial Championship which
starts today (July 15th) to
Sunday in Oak River and
Hamiota.
The team is made up

of a mixture of boys from
Neepawa and Minnedosa
who fi nished in first place
during league play. At the
Regional tournament they
defeated Gladstone 6-5,
Binscarth 3-2, Oak River
12-11 in the round robin
and then went on to beat
Oak River 6-2 in the finals.
If you would like to
make the short trip to this

round robin during the following times: Friday at 8:30
a.m. vs Bonivital White Sox
(in Oak River), Friday 1:30

p.m. vs Dauphin (in Hamiota)
Congratulations to the
players, coaches and manager. Good luck this weekend!

ver the years, it is becoming more
and more diffi cult to blend small
communities together. At one time, it
was much simpler, as transportation
wasn`t so readily available, small towns
offered all the amenities needed, so that
people did not have to travel distances
to acquire their household needs, etc.
and people did not have to travel to
neighbouring communities to find employment.
Also, there were churches, clubs,
organizations and activities to keep
people active and interested within the
confines of their community.
As the years went by, things
changed, women got into the workforce, and along with their partners had
to travel out of town to fi nd jobs and
start careers. Not only that but they
were raising families as well, which gave
them little time to join organized activities.
Let`s add to the mix, television,
computers, smart phones, etc. which
give people a wide choice of activities
within their own homes. And let`s not
forget all the motorized vehicles that are
now used as a source of entertainment
which takes away from the community
centres and halls, so that people are not
getting together to participate in activities offered by these facilities.

So, what do you do to congregate
people into an area, you offer various activities to get people out of their homes
and involved. One way, the Rapid City
Community Chamber unwittingly did
this, was to have a Community Market
for a couple of months during the summer. Along with that, the Firefighters
were on hand to serve up hamburgers,
hot dogs, drinks and chips, so it was
like a late afternoon out. It also gave
new residents an opportunity to set up
a table and let people in the community
know that they have a product or business to off er and to make themselves
known.
The Community Market had become a great meeting place, not only
were you able to buy fresh veggies,
home baking and crafts, but you got a
chance to meet and greet old friends
and new, to try your luck at Trivia, enjoy
a quick meal and to just have an enjoyable time.
Needless to say, the Chamber is
once again sponsoring the Community
Market, which will start on July 14th and
run weekly into September. Along with
the firefi ghters, there will be different
organizations running the canteen during this period, which will mean more
people coming out and participating.
Plan to come out and see what the Market has to off er. We would love to see
you there.
