On May 22 - 23, several people from Prairie View Municipality helped clean up the Silver Bend Trail.  Thanks to Jenny Kuemper for organizing the cleanup. Also, a big thank you to Sid Roberts, Alan Wilson and his outdoor education class, and others for helping. The cleanup will continue in June.

Christa Nash, Miniota MMSS Co-ordinator, organized craft days where seniors made solar lights. The first day they painted designs on a flower pot and shellacked it. The second day they glued a solar light to the bottom of the flower pot. Quite a work of art!

Some of the Miniota Museum board members cleaned the Museum house, ready for tours by contacting the Miniota Municipal office any time, now. A grant was received from Prairie View Municipality for upgrades to the museum.

The Drop In also received a grant from Prairie View Municipality for exterior repairs.

A grant was also received from "Healthy Together Now" to provide for Green Space Summer Recreation in the Memory Garden, with funding provided by the Manitoba Government. The Memory Garden will soon be buzzing with activity - horseshoes, croquet, lawn darts, washer throw, ladderball, etc. Come, join in the fun every evening.

The Miniota Sports grounds have been busy in the evenings with baseball of different ages participating, with a real nice gathering of children, parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and friends to cheer them on.
