Recognition, Entertainment, and putting the Pass on the map all in one week.

What a great week in the Crowsnest Pass:

Wednesday night the municipality in conjunction with the FCSS board hosted the Volunteer recognition night, there was a packed house the meal was catered by Chris's restaurant and entertainment was provided by a group of four young guys named "Hoja" who put on an excellent show that appealed to all age groups. Three people were recognized for their volunteer efforts by receiving the Order of the Crowsnest Pass presented by Mayor Painter. Long time volunteers Margaret Stolk and Margaret Ann Woodward shared the award and Kiana Miskulin received the Order of the Crowsnest Pass Outstanding Youth award.

Friday night the Polish Hall in Coleman hosted the CBC show "Of all places" more great entertainment, the comedian Johnny Harris and his two colleagues had the crowd laughing from the beginning to the end. What was really impressive was that they spent the week here not just visiting the Pass but actually learning about the Pass and some of it's people. Which was very evident by the way Mr Harris built so much of what he learnt into his material.
I will find out when the show will be televised great opportunity to put the Crowsnest Pass on the map.

Saturday we have the Turning Pointe Dance Studio putting on their annual Festival of the Stars two shows the first at 2pm and the second at 6pm. Come up to the MDM and catch some great entertainment provided by the very talented youth of our community.

I just picked up my copy of "Southwest Alberta Travel Planner." Have a gander through that beautiful booklet Dean. I think next year we could have a few more of our activities listed, and maybe a page highlighting our municipality. (Like Picture Butte, Stirling, Claresholm, and Pincher Creek have.) I was disappointed not to see our Bellecrest Days, Canada Day,and Heritage Weekend activities listed in the "Special Events" listings. (Not to mention the 100th anniversary specials for the Hillcrest Mine Disaster, that we are spending a bunch of money on. Looks like people will be at the Chuck Wagon Races in High River that weekend.) We have so much great stuff going on here, but no one knows it. How on earth do we get into this booklet?

Well, I found out how to get in that "Southwest Alberta Travel Planner" booklet. Moolah. Oh well, still looks like not a bad investment. Maybe next year?

Dean, I happy to hear that council cut a little fat and are holding taxes at 0%. I am not so happy because I was better informed of what was happening with council when you were not a councillor.
Can you give me any updates on the following;
Bridgecreek properties
50k for the hotel
Annexation of Ranchlands
Thanks in advance.

Anybody who is happy with a hold on taxes is as stupid as these guys. The longer the hold the bigger the eventual increase. Wake up, tax increases are a part of life but thats just more ignorance this council is showing.
