The Tent Town Garden Club held a community event on Friday, September 29th in Minitonas to celebrate the progress made on the Village Square project. With funding assistance from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley in the amount of $2,000, as well as an additional Canada 150 grant for $2,000, the group was able to cover just under half the cost of adding a cement walkway, pad and table as well as a metal sign marking the national occasion.

The group, whose mission is to upgrade local green spaces, are looking to raise the remaining funds in the near future. The Village Square can be found on the corner of Main Street and Second Avenue.
