MESSAGE FROM THE MACNUTT CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE - June 2014
It is almost a year since MacNUTT celebrated it's 100th birthday, and what a birthday it was. For many, it was an opportunity to reminisce and reacquaint past friendships, a gathering of family, a chance for the village to show off her tenacity of age mixed with businesses and faces anew.
It is important to acknowledge the many volunteers that assisted the Centennial Committee, not only in the village but the surrounding area as well. I continue to hear "Thank-you" and accolades of a job well-done, so I pass this along to all of you.The Centennial Committee must also recognize our sponsors. People who once lived here and moved away, but who remember their roots.
Thank you to Western Urethane and Winnipeg Environmental. Thank you to Andres Farm Services Ltd and to Wendell Honey Farm, who both seemed to always have an available trailer, truck, workers or any spare part when needed. Thank you to all our local businesses and the people that are staunch supporters of a place you call home - MacNutt.
At the end of the celebrations, the Centennial Committee met to finalize expenditures. The success of Centennial celebrations has given the committee a good problem - where to spend the profits! We have taken a great deal of time to consider our options. Each organization that contributed to the Centennial start-up fund, it received $1100.00 in return to do with as they wanted - the committee invested in village signs and flags displaying the new village logo. We are still looking into a couple more projects that we think will be appreciated in the community. I won't comment on the details until they are finalized, but I will say that the projects will center around Main Street. Also, on the heels of Centennial, the Rec Board continues to look into upgrades to the Centennial Arena. With the new portable dance floor and added summer events. The Curling Club has been busy keeping our curling arena refreshed with newer equipment and accessories to make our curling game be better - well, at least make it look better! With the spray foamed interior, hopefully we will also enjoy a longer curling season.The Seniors Center will be seeing renovations this summer, as well, hopefully the Library too. Hazel's Tavern did some pre-Centennial reno's too.These are all important to note, because it shows stability and growth in our community. It also shows that people continued support is appreciated.
For anyone still interested - there are videos of the complete Centennial weekend and videos of just the Centennial Parade along with the parade of the 75th celebrations. They are available through the MacNutt Credit Union, Hazel's Tavern, and Derwood Andres. There are also Centennial t-shirts available through the Magicsty's Store and Hazel's Tavern.
