Miniota by Bev Peel

The Miniota Drop-In has undergone an interior and exterior facelift thanks to the hard work of volunteers.

Work on the exterior of the Drop-In and the shed includes - brick work, facia, ramps, sign, and painting, done by David Lawrence, Rudy Leroy, David and Kyle Buchanan, Jenny Copet, and Wade Browning.

Don Armitage repainted the shuffle floor while the rest of the recreation floor was painted by Faye Campbell.

Grants from Prairie View Municipality and the Government of Manitoba helped to make this all possible.

A big bouquet to the Miniota Drop-In for their diligence and hard work in providing activities and entertainment for the community.
