A few months ago, while we were planning the picnic, we invited Mayor Bowman and his family to our picnic that we hosted last week. Unfortunately due to prior commitments, he was unable to attend. However, he did send me a message on Friday that he would like us to share with you.
Don’t forget about our Community Picnic, this Wednesday June 17 from 6:00-8:30PM at Faraday School (405 Parr Street). There will be a lot to take in, tons of fun and free entertainment!
There will be carnival games, WFPS Truck display, Manitoba Public Insurance Car Town presentation (ages 4-7); face painting, silent auction, snacks, a chocolate fundraiser for the grade 6 farewell. There will be Bannock Tacos for sale or bring your own picnic dinner on the school field.
To celebrate and welcome Summer Solstice and Aboriginal Day on Sunday, we have an amazing group of Hoop Dancers coming to perform for us. You are in for a treat!
Our MC for the evening will be JD Francis from 99.1 Fresh Radio!
In the event of rain, the picnic will be held the following week – Wednesday June 24, same time.
