Griffin Bugg Needs Your Help!

riffi n Bugg needs the


communityshelp.
Th e eight-year-old boy,
from Minnedosa, and his
family need a new specialized van to accommodate
his wheelchair. Up until
now, his parents, Sondra
and Michael Bugg, have
been moving Griffin from
his nearly 60 pound wheelchair into his car seat in
their current van. Griffi n currently weighs 49.5
pounds, and with Sondras
bad back, is getting harder
to transfer.
Griffi n also has seizures. In the summertime,
while sitting in his car seat
in the van that the family currently owns, Griffi n had a seizure, and his
leg jarred the back of the
drivers seat and it broke
his femur. According to his
mother, Sondra, his leg is
still healing. This incident
is what prompted the family to seek help from their
community. Prior to Griffins broken leg, his parents
had planned on getting a
van that is more suited to
safe and easy transport, but
since the incident, there
has been more pressure
because this kind of thing
could happen again at any
time.
Th e new van, which
will likely have a side door,
will allow Sondra and Michael to roll Griffins wheelchair directly into the van.
Aside from the benefit this
will allow from a weight
perspective, this will also
allow Griffin more comfort
and safety while being in
the vehicle. According to
Sondra, hes getting heavier, and if he gets a seizure
during a transfer its dangerous to him and for the
person doing the transfer.

Michael also noted that one
of the benefi ts of the new
van, and being able to roll
Griffin into it in his wheelchair, is that when Griffin
is having a bad day, where
he has had many seizures,
the seat he has in the van
is a special seat, but the
way that its designed, he
cant lean back far enough
because its rigid so he
hangs. Unless hes got a
harness, if he doesnt have
the strength to hold his
head up or if hes sleeping,
he just hangs and the nice
thing about the wheelchair
is we can tilt it back.
Currently, the family
has a hard time going out
all together. Either Sondra

or Michael will either stay


in the van with Griffin when
they have multiple stops to
make, or one of them will
stay home with him. The
new van will allow the family of four to go out more
easily. It will allow Griffin
the chance to experience
more of the world, and see
his brother in some of his
activities.
Sondra and Michael
have already made many
additions to their home
to make it a safe and comfortable place for their son.
They had a large deck built
when Griffi n was still able
to manoever a walker, they
put in a pool because one
of Griffins doctors sug-

gested this for water therapy, which allows Griffin


to exercise without putting
weight on his muscles. On
top of this, the family had to
heat the pool because Griffin is sensitive to temperature change, and the cold
water can cause seizures.
They have also put a wheelchair lift in front of their
home. Griffi n has a track
that runs from his bed to
the washroom, and his bed
can be raised and lowered.
In addition, due to his
many medical appointments outside of the community, the family is often
travelling to Winnipeg,
which means money for
gas, the occasional hotel

stay, and money for food.


With Griffi ns health,
one of his parents needs
to be available in case of
an emergency at all times.
Sondra has given up full
time employment so that
she can be available to her
son. Because the family
has only one income coming in, they are finding it
difficult to aff ord the new
wheelchair van. The family does receive assistance
from a variety of organizations in the health industry, however the van is
one thing that they are still
struggling to afford.

Students Scare Hunger Jamboree Funds Dispersed


By HILLARY CAMPBELL

his year, students at


Minnedosa Collegiate
and Tanners Crossing Elementary Schools did their
part in the war against
hunger.
Together with
volunteers from the local
Food Bank, students at TCS
competed against other
classes to donate the heaviest weight of food. Students
from MCI went trick-ortreating for non-perishable
food items to donate.
Students at TCS had
a week to bring food from
home to put towards the
worthy cause. The school
turned it into a competition between classes, and
volunteers from the Food
Bank came to the schools
on Friday, October 28th,
equipped with their scales,
and weighed the food given
by each class. There was
also a number of student
volunteers from the LS!N
(Lets Stop It Now) We
Scare Hunger group.
In fi
rst place was Mrs.
Parrotts grade 3-4 class,
with 143.2 pounds. In second place was Mrs. Konsoradas grade 1-2 class,
with 129.36 pounds. In thid
place was Mrs. Kingdons
grade 5-6 class, with 103.84

pounds. It was noted, however, that all classes were


extremely helpful with their
donations, and each classs
eff orts were greatly appreciated. The grand total that
was raised by TCS, to be
donated to the food bank,
is 1,113.64 pounds, which
is more than was raised by
the event last year.
There were seven students from MCI who got
dressed up on Halloween
and trick-or-treated for
non-perishables.
These
committed students, who
braved the cold and rain
in order to do some good,
were able to collect 219
non-perishable items this
year. The event for MCI students was organized by Tanis Barrett. Krista Storozynsky, a teacher at MCI, said
that this was the first year
after a multiple year break
that the students have done
this. She also said that,
considering it was raining, I think it was very successful. Storozynsky noted
that although both the TCS
and the MCI food collection events are both named
We Scare Hunger, and that
food collected all goes to
the same cause, that the
two programs are not connected.

When asked why she


thought it was an important event for the kids,
Storozynsky said that, I
think the kids feel a sense
of accomplishment, they
feel very proud that they
are able to collect the food.
Not everybody has food
and they know that, and I
think they like being able to
help. She hopes that next
year, even more kids will
be willing to trick-or-treat
for non-perishables, and
noted that the kids had fun
getting dressed up and going out. She added that the
students were not able to
get to all of the houses, so
if there is anyone who has
food that they would like to
donate, they can bring it to
the school, or directly to the
Minnedosa and Area Food
Bank.
With one of every nine
people in the world suffering from hunger, donating to the food bank is a
very worthy cause. Debbie
Gaiser, chairperson of the
Minnedosa and Area Food
Bank, commented that
they serve between 90 and
100 families in the community each month. She
said that, we appreciate
the school helping us out,
and the parents behind it,
its wonderful and we really
appreciate it, and our clients will appreciate it.

Fall Information Fair


By HILLARY CAMPBELL

n Thursday, October 20th, there were


22 caring members of
the community who gave
their time at the 50+ Centre. The fall information
fair hosted 22 vendors this
year. This was the fourth
year for the fall information fair and, according
to Services to Seniors Coordinator, Maxine Woodcock, there were more
vendors this year than
when they first started
holding the fair.
Many of the vendors
are from government
agencies, and there are
some that come to town
from Brandon. There are
many support groups for

seniors who come to the


fair because, as Woodcock
mentions, it is to get the
information out, because
not everyone can go online and not everyone can
travel to the city to learn
whats out there.
Th e fair is very important to provide awareness of what resources
are available to people.
Woodcock relayed the
story of one attendee from
last years fair who, after
speaking with one of the
vendors about her symptoms, decided she needed
to check in with her doctor, and as a result was
able to address a health
concern. This situation,

and it is likely that there


are others similar to this,
is exactly why it is important to hold these fairs.
The vendors consisted
of a variety of different
support groups.
There
were vendors who attended to provide information
on healthy hearing, diabetes, aphasia, cancer, the
food bank, dental hygiene,
strokes, and many others.
The various vendors were
all very informative, and
most had pamphlets for
people to take away with
them.
There are many issues
that aff ect people as they
grow older, and the most
important thing they can

do is become aware of
the resources that are out
there. Woodcock noted
that, every one of them is
important, there are lots
of needs out there.
Th e many vendors
were happy to be at the fair,
and according to Woodcock, they all seemed very
eager to return to future
information fairs.
Its a lot of work, and
people are taking the time
out of their day to travel
here, said Woodcock.
Yet, if people do not take
the time to support the
fair, then it will no longer
be held. The decision, in
the end, will be put to the
board.

from town.

1906 The new well on Minnedosa Avenue was tested


and after pumping with the fire engine for the greater part
of the day, the water was still not all taken out. It will be of
value to the houses in its vicinity, but a reservoir on top of
one of the hills would be much better.

1916 - The Basswood Consolidated School is to be formally opened the evening of November 10th. The building is a fine one, a credit to its village, and will likely be an
inducement for other school districts to go and do likewise.

1936 Loans up to $2,000, under the federal government housing scheme, are now available at Minnedosa
banks. The loans can be used in improving, repairing and
extending existing homes already built.
1956 Minnedosa residents have been pleasantly surprised to learn the name of the street they live on through
street signs erected this year. The posts are painted white
with the names in black and are quite attractive.
1966 Six-year-old Nicole Walker passed away two days
after being struck down by an unknown hit-and-run driver. The day after Nicoles untimely passing, 71-year-old
John Demeria was killed in a similar incident in which a
Saskatchewan driver struck Demeria while he was walking along #4 Highway south of Minnedosa.
1976 A letter to Minnedosa Council from Census
Canada revealed that the revised population of the town
stands at 2,697, ten more than the figure outlined in the
first census report, which Council appealed.

will be Dave Pollon, Garth Scrupa, Cam Willis, Blair Delmage and Keith Stewart.

round Council tables in towns just like ours are


esteemed officials who are outlining what needs
to happen in order to create growth in their communities. They might be talking about investing in infrastructure to service commercial lots to make them
turnkey for the next proposal that comes along. They
might be talking about investing in their visible appeal
along the well-travelled highways through or near the
community. Lots of ideas and recommendations
spring forward, but are they overlooking the most important piece of all?
There will be little argument from anyone that
the future of our rural towns requires that we attract
young families to populate our neighbourhoods.
With a young family, you have a population that supports local schools, recreation programs and the elements that bring a community to life. Additionally, in
todays current economic climate, in most cases that
also means that you now also have two new working
adults to contribute to the local labour force. We have
fi lled a house and with any luck maybe that young
family establishes some roots that will plant them in
the community for years to come. But what might be
the first question that hobbles us in our recruiting efforts?
What do you have in the community for childcare?
This has become a growing need as the opportunity to thrive and take full advantage of the benefits
of living rurally still often require that both adults in
the home are gainfully employed. While some readers may guffaw at the suggestion that a lengthy wait
list for childcare is the stumbling block that prevents
our overall growth, consider this:
A young family is attracted to Minnedosa for
a career opportunity for the wife in her fi eld. Its a
$45,000 a year opportunity. Upon knowing that
their lives are going to play out their next chapter
in Minnedosa, the husband seeks work in the area
and also secures a $45,000 salary. On $90,000 a year,
that spells out a pretty good living for our new neigh-

bours. However, what changes in their quality of life


when a lengthy wait list for childcare prevents both
parents from working full time? Reliant on a single
parents salary, can a family of four or five survive in
2016 on $45,000 a year?
Its unlikely that either spouse has the fl exibility
in their new role to negotiate a salary increase large
enough to support a single income family, so that
$45,000 opportunity in Minnedosa isnt as attractive
as a similar salary elsewhere even at a slightly lower
rate when it allows both partners the opportunity to
work.
So what are the indicators that we should be
looking at to see how we rate in this regard? The fi rst
thing we might see is an increased reliance on services like the local food bank to keep their household afloat. What do those statistics look like for us
here? Locally, the Minnedosa food bank supports 90
households in a radius of about twelve communities.
Thats a pretty high number when you consider our
working population.
Next, we face the spouse looking for work outside
the community perhaps in Brandon, where daycare
spots are available. Whats the trickle effect of that?
First, there is less connectivity to the community because the time that would be spent being introduced
to local committees and Boards is now tied up in daily
commutes to and from Brandon. Are we seeing an
increase in the challenges to recruit volunteers to sit
on our local boards and committees? Slowly, it becomes more convenient to shop in Brandon on the
way home from work, taking away from local economic spending. Eventually, if the family hasnt had time
to find themselves fully embraced by the community
and to feel the sense of home, weve lost that family
to a community that can offer them the services that
they need.
While we debate what services we need and how
we become attractive to new families as well as business and industry, lets not discount the importance
of childcare. With wait lists of up to fourteen months
to find care, this deficiency will cost us both now and
into the future. How much are we prepared to lose in
the mean time?

Youth Cadets Proud To Serve


By HILLARY CAMPBELL

ith Remembrance
Day around the
corner, The Tribune had a
chance to speak with Hailey Rapsky, who has been
with the Cadets for over
fi ve years. The 17 yearold said that there has not
been a Thursday that she
has not attended Cadets
Night. In September, Rapsky was promoted within
the Cadets, and now holds
the highest rank and is referred to as an instructor.
During the Thursday night
sessions, she said that she
could be teaching about
any number of things.
The Cadets, which is
sponsored by the Legion,
provides many benefits to
youths in the community.
According to Rapsky, you
learn a lot of leadership,
which is what Ive taken
out of it. A lot of people
think there is a lot of dis-

cipline still, but I think in


the last fi ve years weve
backed off a lot, and have
become more towards active lifestyle and healthy
living. The militant reputation that Cadets has always had, and has often
scared people away from
joining, is no longer the
case. According to Rapsky, they think we are really strict, when in all honesty, all we want is kids to
come out. While people
are often scared away by
the stigma around the
Cadets connection to the
military, however, Rapsky
noted that, I tell people
dont let the military aspect scare you, because
you will fi nd so much
more that you like about
it.
The reason that Rapsky joined the Cadets is
because her father, Matt,
is a pilot, we heard that
you could get your pilots

license through the program, so that has been the


goal for all five years now.
So far, she has done two,
three week courses, one on
basic aviation and another
on advanced aviation, and
continues to work towards
her goal. She commented
that, I havent got it yet,
its a scholarship over the
summer, so hopefully this
summer will be the one.
Rapskys reason for
joining cadets shows only
one of the many reasons
for joining. Many of the
Th ursday night sessions
are sports nights, or nights
where the kids learn about
Canadas Food Guide, or
other healthy living essentials. Additionally, she
noted, for high school students there is the benefit
of getting credits for participation in Cadets.
Anyone
between
the ages of 12 and 18 are
welcome to join Cadets.
Rapsky said that another
one of the benefi ts of the
program is the friendships

Photo submitted

that she has made, I have


friends all across Canada
that I could possibly call
best friends. She added
that for anyone who feels
like they do not fi t in in
other settings, like school,
you will find someone to
fit in with, we get the odds
and ends. One of the neat
things about the program
is that you learn about different people. People who
are on the outside in other
settings come and, they
are immediately wel-

comed, and we find them


a place. She stressed that
anyone is welcome to join
Cadets, and encourages
people to come out and
try it, that people can just
come out, and if they really dont like it, they dont
need to come back, but
you may surprise yourself. There is nothing to
lose by giving it a try, as it
is free of charge to attend.
For anyone who is interested, the sessions run
on Thursday evenings be-

tween 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.


Th e Cadets from
Minnedosa,
according to Rapsky , will be at
the Minnedosa Remembrance Day service. She
commented that the people from the Legion love
to see us come out, it puts
a smile on their faces,
showing yet another benefit to joining the Cadets.

GIVING CHALLENGE 2016


Saturday, November 19th
In 2012, the nation of Canada offi cially recognized National Philanthropy Day
permanently, setting a new model for other countries to emulate.
National Philanthropy Day is a grassroots movement to increase public interest
and awareness of the importance of philanthropy, as well as knowledge on giving,
volunteering and engagement at the charitable level so people can practice EFFECTIVE
Philanthropy.
Give to your Community Foundation
A Community Foundation focuses on a certain geographic area, making contributions
and providing support to various initiatives in the community covering a wide range of
activities. It is a great way to pool your resources with other donors, to have a bigger
impact in your own community, using the expertise and experience the Foundation has
developed over the years.
Plan your Giving
Give when your gift may be matched, so your giving has a greater impact. In 2016,
Minnedosans gave $5604. During the 24 Hour Giving Challenge. This amount was
matched by 50% from the Thomas Sill Foundation for $2802. And by another 20% from
The Winnipeg Foundation for $1120.80 making a total of $9526.80.
Payroll or Piggy Bank Giving
While $100.00 may seem a lot at one time, a mere $10.00 a month is an annual gift of
$120.00 to your favourite cause. Or how about throwing that extra change into a jar with
a self-promise to donate the contents perhaps annually on National Philanthropy Day,
where currently the Winnipeg Foundation matches it by 20%.
This year, our 24 Hour Giving Challenge is Saturday, November 19.
All cheques reaching the Foundation by this date,
or on-line donations through endowmanitoba.ca on
November 19, will be matched once again
by 20% by The Winnipeg Foundation.

Home Routes Arrives In Minnedosa


we had been playing together. This is likely because, as anyone who sees
them playing together, the
pair has a natural chemistry. They kept the small
crowd engaged from start
to finish with their unique
style and beautiful sound.
Th e soft, folk sound
was very well received by
the audience. The crowd
was awed by Thomsens
soft voice that paired wonderfully with Frechettes
raspy style. In between
songs, the pair would talk
to the crowd, telling them
stories of how they came
up with the next song, and
what it means to them.
Th is gave the crowd a

asked us how many years both started out with poet-

ry, and eventually decided


to put their words to music. We are definitely fascinated by language and
poetry. Weve been called
poets before, and spend a
lot of time crafting out lyrics, commented Frechette
and Thomsen.
One of the highlights
of the evening was Frechettes impression of the
many stages of Bob Dylans
singing voice. He also gave
the audience an impression of Louis Armstrongs
voice, and has a clear talent for impersonations.
Frechette, who hails
from Pinawa, MB met Laurel, who is from Monterey,
California, when he found
a Youtube video of her
playing her fiddle. At first
he mistook her for a fiddler
friend of his from BC, but
instead it was Laurel. He
sent her a kind message
about her music, to which
she responded the next
day. The pair noted that
they, became fast friends,
and eventually met in per-

Routes hosts are in a region, a musician could tour

and can play in peoples

the case in Minnedosa, at
the 50+ Centre. They mentioned that they like to play
all shows, however small
towns are nice because
the traffi c and parking are
less of an issue, and, the
people we meet are marvellously appreciative of
everything around them.
We really appreciate that.
After their one-night
stay in Minnedosa, the two
set off to Wolseley, SK. Th e
two noted that, we are
able this way to perform in
rural areas weve never visited, and meet some wonderful people. Weve made
a lot of fans and love the

Fundraising
For Griffin

Minnedosa UCT Makes Donation


To Primary Care Centre

Continued from Page 1


So far, the family has raised about $26,000, but one of
these vans, when it is new, is not cheap. Part of the funds
raised is from Presidents Choice, who has given the family
$20,000 to put towards the van, and they received $3,000
from the Cerebral Palsy Association. The van that has
been suggested for the family, a Toyota Sienna with a side
entry, would cost $80,000. One of the benefits to this van,
according to Michael is, the inside is so big. It has the biggest cubic metres, and it is a full sized van, so youve got
a little bit more height. However, the family expects that
they will likely not raise the full $80,000, and plans to purchase a used van.
Griffin loves swimming, and loves being in water. According to his parents, he loves being around kids, he
loves being out and about. He likes to watch when he is
alert, and he really gets a lot out of his environment. He
loves his classmates. The van will allow Griffin more access to the world. Sondra and Michael concluded their
interview with The Tribune by commenting, We are really
thankful for all of the help that we have received, it took a
lot for us to ask for help. At the end of November, the family will take whatever money they have raised and buy the
best van that they can afford with it. The agreement with
the Presidents Choice donation is that the funds must be
used by the end of this year, so the family is running out of
time to raise as much as they can. The goal, said Michael,
is to do the best we can with what we get.
The family has setup a GoFundMe account for anyone wishing to help them afford the van. They have also
set up a bank account in Griffins name, for anyone who
is not comfortable with GoFundMe, however the Buggs
stress that cheques for the bank account must be made out
to either Griffin Bugg or Sondra Bugg, and that the word
fundraiser can only be placed in the memo. Next Saturday, November 12th, there will be a Sud N Spud event at
Houstons in Brandon to help the family raise funds. Tickets for this event cost $20, and there will be a 50/50 draw
and a raffle for prizes that were donated by people in the
community.
For anyone wishing to donate funds to the family, they
can purchase tickets to the Sud N Spud event at Houstons, or donate to the GoFundMe page.

n Tuesday, October 25th, the Dr. Ajai


Khandelwal Primary Care
Centre received $5,000
from Minnedosa UCT. The
cheque was presented
to John Mendrikis by Jan
Macey at the Ukrainian
Hall during the UCT Bingo Night. Mendrikis is a
member of the planning
committee for the Primary
Care Centre.
The $5,000 donation
is the result of the money
paid towards bingo that
is put on by the UCT each

week. According to Macey,


we had a chat with ourselves, John came to make
a presentation to a meeting, and we were finding
out if we could donate that
much money from the bingo account. The large sum
of money needed the permission of Manitoba Lotteries Commission before
being offered to the new
health care facility. Macey
added that, lotteries said
go ahead, so we did.
When asked why the
UCT felt that this was a worthy cause for their funds,
Macey commented that it

helps out the community,


so thats why we wanted to
do it. One of the pillars of
the UCT is that the money
that they raise remains in
the community. With that
in mind, it stands to reason
that funds raised should
go to such an important
community project as the
Primary Care facility. She
noted that, the money is
made here so it stays here,
and you never know when
you might need the clinic
or us.
When accepting the
cheque, Mendrikis said
that the drive is going very

Rotary Fights Polio

he Minnedosa Rotary Club has


been helping to keep Polio Plus
on the forefront of the fight against
Polio. So far, Rotary members have
raised over $60,000 towards this cause.
This money goes, in part, towards the
many thousands of vaccinations that
are made available to individuals in
countries where access to these vaccinations is not always the simplest of
processes.
Polio is currently limited to three
countries in the world. Afghanistan,
Pakistan and Nigeria have all reported
cases of polio. After two years of being polio free Nigeria has reported two
cases of the virus. Affecting mainly
children under the age of five, the
number of polio cases since 1988 has
decreased by 99%. The number went
from about 350,000 cases to 31 cases

as of October 21st, 2016. This is in part


due to contributions from organizations such as the Rotary Club.
The virus is transmitted from person to person, and it is highly infectious. The virus invades the nervous
system and can lead to total paralysis
within hours. While there is no cure
for polio once it has been contracted,
it can be prevented with the polio vaccine. As long as there is a single child
with polio, other children will be at
risk of contracting the virus. On an
international level, Rotary has contributed more that $1.5 billion and many
volunteer hours to fight polio.
Th e Rotary brings together volunteers from all over the world who
are each dedicated to fighting against
humanitarian challenges. It connects
1.2 million individuals, in over 34,000
clubs, in more than 200 countries.

Kim Burgess
Continued from Page 9
It was at the urging of
Inspire curator, Marlies
Soltys that Burgess registered a pitch at Whats the
Big Idea?. Soltys had been
a big winner at the 2015
debut of the entrepreneurship event to get her studio
started and believed that
the community would embrace the idea. Soltys was
right.
Facing a panel which
included judges from the
Business
Development
Bank of Canada and the
World Trade Centre Winnipeg, Burgess was awarded
more than $1,000 in cash
awards as well as a voucher for marketing assistance
from Trend Lab Marketing an Edmonton-based
fi rm specializing in digital
marketing for businesses.
We asked: With a solid
boost to launch this new
venture, will this signal a
change in her career path
with the school division?
I love working in the
school setting, says Burgess. There are defi nitely
parallels with my work in
the school and with art
therapy that are both rewarding in their own way.
Both roles really complement each other.
Since the October 20th

win, Burgess has been


encouraged by the feedback from friends and colleagues in Minnedosa. The
response, she tells us, has
been very positive.
Th rough her mentor,
Lori Boyko, notifications
were issued to support
agencies and client contacts across the region to
announce the opening of
Valley Art Therapys second location in Minnedosa. The fi rst client session
took place on October 26th
less than one week after
the Big Idea victory. With
a service radius slated to
include Brandon, Dauphin, Neepawa and other
towns in the vicinity, Big
Idea winner Kim Burgess is
putting Minnedosa on the
map in a whole new arena.

NOVEMBER 4TH, 2002
The treasure of your memory
will never fade or die.
In silence we will shed a tear
and ask the reason why.
God called your
name so softly,
that only you could hear.
And no one heard
the footsteps
of the angels drawing near.
As each and every day goes by,
we think of you awhile.
And always in our
hearts will keep,
the memory of your smile.
The flowers and
leaves may wither,
the golden sun may set.
But the hearts that
truly loved you,
are the ones that wont forget.

In Loving Memory of
BRUCE EDWARD

OBITUARIES
ALMA IRENE PETERSON
(nee YOUNG)
JUNE 6TH, 1919
OCTOBER 23RD, 2016
Mother, Grandmother and
Great Grandmother passed
away peacefully at the Minnedosa Health Center with family
by her side.
She is survived by her three
children: Gerald (Margaret),
Karen Johnson (Ingvar) and Janet
Anderson; eight grandchildren:
Heath Peterson, Nathan Peterson
(Cassandra), Jennifer Vaisman (Laurent),
Tyler Johnson (Danielle), Megan Perrin (Dan), Naomi Anderson, Hayley Anderson (Darrell Laver), Corinne Anderson; and
two great grandchildren: Teri Peterson (Kyle Hartmeier) and Elliott Perrin.
She is also survived by her sister Clara Johnson (Albert),
sisters-in-law Vivian Young, Ruth Young and Helen Campbell,
plus numerous nieces and nephews.
Alma was predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Harold
Ernest Peterson in October of 1997, and her brothers George,
Lewis, Lloyd, Glen and Bruce.
She was the oldest of seven children born to William T. and
Irene Young (Aldridge) and grew up in the Glenella and Kelwood districts. At the age of 14, her family moved to the Minnedosa district. After her schooling and a brief time working as
a housekeepers helper, she married Harold on July 4th, 1942.
Their first home was in Kingston, Ontario, where Harold was in
basic army training. In early 1943, Harold was released from the
army and they returned to the Peterson farm where Harold took
up farming with his father and brother.
They remained on the farm for 55 years; at which time Harold
passed away. It was shortly thereafter that Alma moved to the
Kinsmen Court in Minnedosa, where she lived until January of
this year when she moved to the Personal Care Home.
Alma enjoyed her life on the farm, her church involvement,
her many trips with Harold in their motor home, and loved having family and friends visiting. She especially loved having her
grandchildren come and stay on the farm with her and Harold.
Funeral services were held on October 27th, 2016 at the
Minnedosa Evangelical Covenant Church. Interment was in
Smoland Cemetery.
The family would like to thank Dr. Onyshko and the caring
staff at the Minnedosa Health Center for their support and care
of Mother during her last days. The family would also like to
thank the staff at the Personal Care Home for the care given to
Mother while she was a resident there.

By HILLARY CAMPBELL

n
Friday
night,
October
28th,
Minnedosa UCT spread
some Halloween cheer.
They hosted a Halloween
party for the clients of
Frontier and Touchwood
Park
(Neepawa)
at
the Ukrainian Hall in
Minnedosa. Attending the
event were 27 clients and
10 staff from Touchwood
Park, eight clients and
three staff from Frontier, 14
UCT volunteers, and two
guests. In total, there were
67 attendees at the event.
The two primary
organizers
were Dot
Schumacher and Cathy
Lawson.
Schumacher

noted that the music


was provided by Olive
Cameron,
and
the
attendees
were
kept
moving, laughing, having
fun, playing games and
dancing all night. Games
were played, such as a
version of musical chairs
in which a fake arm was
passed around the circle,
eliminating guests one by
one.
There were also
many prizes to be given
away, which were donated
by the UCT, as well as by
individual UCT members.
Each client won a prize
throughout the evening.
There was a silent auction
in which clients are each
given 25 tickets to put into

The Rolling River School Division


Board of Trustees
invites
interested individuals to present their views on
educational and budget priorities for the Board of Trustees
to consider in setting the 2017-2018 budget.
You may do this through
written submission
or
making a presentation at a Board meeting.
Please submit a written submission or forward a letter / email requesting
to make a presentation at a
Board meeting to the attention of:
Rolling River School Division
c/o Kathlyn McNabb, Secretary-Treasurer

kmcnabb@rrsd.mb.ca

each of the 25 bags for


prizes. Attendees who were
able to pay also bought
raffle tickets for $2.00. The
door prize for the evening,
which was won by a client
of Touchwood Park, was a
spooky Halloween witch in
a cage, which was donated
by Minnedosa Pharmacy.
Among
the
attendees was Sherlock
Holmes, Elvis, a convict,
Dracula, a cowboy, two
pirates, and many witches.
A light lunch was served
to attendees, with UCT
member
Jan
Macey
helping with the cooking.
Schumacher
noted that the clients,
really liked the dancing.
Most of the dances they

liked were the limbo, the


Macarena, and the chicken
dance. She added that the
clients really enjoyed the
dances when everybody
participates.
The event is put on
each year by the UCT, and
runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
However,
Schumacher
commented that, they
are really anxious to get in,
some of them were there at
6:30, as soon as we opened
the door.
With many
volunteers, it was a night
of noise, confusion, and
plenty of fun, which is the
whole point. Schumacher
added that, everybody
has a really good time.

Four-plex Info Night At Sandy Lake Well Attended

be built was generously championed the project.

Th eir help in furthering


the project, and helping
with the mail-out survey
back in the summer and
with the prefeasibility
study is highly valued by
members of the committee. Stapleton noted that
further support was received by the Sandy Lake
Sunrise Credit Union.
The idea was very favourably received, and the
responses by attendees
further encouraged committee members, especially, noted Stapleton, in
the initial interest in the
occupancy. The largest
age bracket in the area is
between 60 and 64 years
of age. With an aging
community, this initiative
is especially important,
and will only grow to be
more so in the future.
The next step in the
project is the formation of

a corporate board to continue the planning and


manage the process. The
prefeasibility committee
is looking for three to five
people from the community to tackle this task. The
Age-Friendly committee
will carry the project until
the end of January 2017,
which will allow people
time to digest all that they
have heard, and investigate further. Stapleton
noted that, we are pretty
confi dent after last night
that we definitely have
the interest in the community to fill it with occupancy. With age-friendly
housing becoming more
prominent in southwestern Manitoba, there is still
nothing in Harrison-Park
and, according to Stapleton, its the perfect place
to start, we just need to
get over that hump to get

it, its sort of like a field of


dreams thing.
Seniors in the Harrison-Park Municipality
often need to leave their
community to find appropriate housing, and it
is to the detriment of their
community.
Fletcher
commented that, thats
what this is all about, an
opportunity for people
who live in the community to continue to age in
place in their community,
and not have to leave and
go elsewhere. This kind
of freedom will mean the
world to some of the community members.
The
shock of moving to places
unknown is not always a
pleasant experience, and
it is important to help seniors stay in their communities. Fletcher added
that, the enthusiasm last
night was quite palpable,

and we ended up being


very encouraged by the
whole thing.
Housing is a priority
in the age friendly action
plan, and having a fourplex life lease housing
project in Sandy Lake has
been part of the plan for
some time, but according
to Stapleton, if it wasnt
for the generous donation
of land from Gloria Campbell it would probably be
sitting on paper, but now it
is alive and well and growing.
