The Town of Neepawa is hosting an information session looking at different events that various community groups have planned for 2018 in an effort to create a full, engaging community calendar in the coming year. 

The event is happening at the Chicken Corral restaurant on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome, and the Town of Neepawa’s Director of Recreational Services, Nicole Synchyshyn, says she hopes there will be a good turnout.

“Anyone who is interested in sharing what they have planned or are looking for feedback about potential activities or events are welcome to attend,” she attested. “Or, if you want to get involved and volunteer, but don’t know how to get started, this would be a great opportunity to come out and mingle with the groups responsible for the activities and talk about how they can help.”

This is a repeat of last year’s session, Synchyshyn said, when the town was in the midst of planning it’s Canada 150 activities. 

“The feedback from that session was very positive and it was recommended that we hold a session every year for everyone to share their information and feedback,” she explained. “We hope to improve interaction amongst individuals, organizations and community groups for the betterment of the community as a whole.” She added the town is also interested in starting up a networking system for all the groups involved.
