Greetings Everyone!

After serving on council for 24 years, and 22 of those years as Mayor, Dennis has stepped down and is handing the reigns to me.  He will remain on council until next summer creating a smooth transfer of knowledge, for which I am grateful.  I will be shadowing him as he passes the obligations over one at a time.

Leane & I are retired and living out here full time now.  I will be able to put my best foot forward as I try to fill Dennis’ shoes, that is a big pair!  He does a lot behind that scenes that we are not aware of.

Some of you may have noticed that taxes were a bit lower this year.  That is because last year we had to guess on the school tax and luckily we guessed on the high side so that credit was applied to this years taxes.  We try to keep taxes as low as possible while maintaining our village and keeping it as one of the most beautiful summer villages in the province!

Andrew Stepanuk is moving forward with the playground and will be completing things as money comes in.  He will let us know when work days are set up.  Don’t be afraid to call and offer him your help at 780-714-0479 or Andrew.stepanuk@gmail.com.

I also want to mention that Garth and Marion Bancroft, who have been our administrators, are retiring at the end of this month and we wish them well. Kim Bancroft will be taking over as administrator and her contact information is on the website.

Definitely get in touch with one of us, Dennis, Ed or myself for any concerns that you may have. Remember to tolerate the occasional party, after all we do live in a summer village.

Respect one another and be kind!
