With the lovely weather we’ve been having lately, it’s starting to feel like summer isn’t too far away. I’m eagerly anticipating the summer months, not only because of the longer days and extra sunshine, but because of all the fun local parades and events that take place during that time as well. Lorette Family Fun Days is the first local festival coming up, and it takes place from June 2nd-4th. I am excited to attend these local events in the coming weeks and months, chat with constituents, and take part in the festivities.
I’d also like to take the time to highlight the official launch of the Dawson Trail Commemorative Project’s new interpretive trail that celebrates the art and history of the Dawson Trail. The Dawson Trail was Canada’s first all-Canadian access road linking the east to the west. This new development includes 15 wayfinding markers and a series of permanent art exhibits, which will span nearly 150 kms along the Dawson Trail, from the southeast corner of the province to Winnipeg. The Dawson Trail Commemorative Project is in the final phase of development and is the product of a major grassroots and community-based initiative that was started to help celebrate and promote artist-residents and the heritage of the Dawson Trail. The official launch will take place on Saturday, May 27th from 10am-3pm at the Richer Young at Hearts Club and Dawson Trail Museum. All are welcome to attend.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact my constituency office.
