In the Spring of 2015 a second shade structure was
added with a little help from our Friends at the
Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Small Capital Sponsorship Program.
It was an addition that was long overdue and we
were very pleased to have received a grant to help
us complete the project.
Fall of 2017 saw some major upgrades to the
Manitou & Community Swimming Pool.
We replaced the ageing liner which we were able to
complete with a generous donation from
the Jim Henderson Estate as well as contributions
from the Canada 150 Fund.
Fall 2017/Spring 2018 We completed our "Safety
from the Ground Up" Project in conjunction with
Tire Stewardship Manitoba which allowed us to install
recycled rubber safety surfacing to
the entire floor of our Change rooms as well as the
the stairs and landings going to the Water slides.
