2016! Let's Make It A Great Year!!
The Distance Learning Centre has been completed and staff have moved in.
A group of our young people are showing leadership and volunteering through the Rec Board to invigorate and manage our facilities.
The Library Board has had an influx of new leaders and are busy fund raising for needed renovations to the library building itself together with the expansion of library programs. As you are aware, the Library is partnering with the Pool Board and a new recipe book, all with our local favorites, will be for sale in 2016. I can hardly wait.
With the collaboration and leadership of Elaina Guilmette, Rec Board Chair, and Carman Fowler, Rec Board Secretary-Treasurer, all boards are being notified and taking advantage of grants and financial assistance available to them.
One of the most important assets a community has is it's combined knowledge and talents of those that make up the community. I would say 2016 is off to a very good start indeed.
Super Draft, the brain child of the Kenaston Lions, has been an invaluable resource to this community for many, many years. I am embarrassed to admit that I have never participated in the draft. I always appreciated the Lions' for what they did for us' but, well, there it ended. I pledge to enter the 2016 draft and every draft there-ever and I challenge all those in the community who can, to enter as well. I'm counting on 'beginner's luck'. Any and all hockey tips will be appreciated.
January 28 Council met with our regional representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency, Water Security Agency, together with the community Engineer. It proved to be a highly educational and productive meeting.
It is with regret that Council accepted the resignation of Councilor Kevin Mills at the January meeting. On behalf of the community I wish to thank Kevin for his many years of public service. As much as it can be a rewarding experience, it can also be a very thankless job. Kevin not only rarely missed a meeting but he was available at all times for cheque signing, lending of equipment, physically helping with water breaks, etc. He made himself available to the community day and night, often taking late nite phone call from an upset resident. So Kevin, when we say THANK YOU, we do mean THANK YOU. You will be missed.
We are here to work with you and for you.

Kenaston Blizzards: are hosting Kerrobert Tigers Saturday Feb 6 for the 1st game of SHA Provincial play. Puck drops at 7:00
Family Day—Sunday January 24th was a great day at the Rink.
Riverbend Co-op sponsored a family day which was kicked off by the Kenaston/Loreburn 8's hosting Kyle. Kenaston came out on top but it was fair game for all the kids who received popcorn, candy floss and thunder sticks after the game compliments of and served by the Riverbend Co-op staff.
The thunder sticks came in handy as the Kenaston Blizzards senior team hosted Central Butte which also resulted in a win! The 50/50 had an extra element added with the chance for 3 lucky people to play plinko for a chance to win up to $250.00 In Co-op gift cards plus 2 $50.00 gift cards were drawn for. After the game kids were invited to join the Sr. team to "Skate with the Blizzards".
Everyone had a great time as they skated, took shots on the Blizzard goalie or just looked up to their favorite player. Riverbend Co-op staff is awesome! Thanks to each and everyone for making this day so much fun!
