Council received a letter from Manitoba Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon thanking them for the wonderful hospitality shown during her recent visit to Flin Flon. She noted she and husband Gary were touched by the warm welcome and kindness show to them by everyone from organizers, teachers, students, volunteers and residents of the community. She adds the excitement in the air was a reminder of the rich history Culture Days held not only for residents of Flin Flon and surrounding communities but Manitobans and visitors from afar concluding it was a truly memorable trip.
In response to a question local Citizens on Patrol Chair Sinclair James reported they continue to patrol the community with 21 volunteers adding they are always looking for more volunteers.
