Have you heard about the Manitoba Homecoming 2010 initiative? Five MB towns have been selected as finalists in the contest that will decide which MB town gets to host the biggest party next year in celebration of Manitoba’s 140th birthday on May 12, 2010.
Be proud of your community
You can vote for your favourite nominee (only once!) at:
Congrats to La Broquerie, La Salle, Morden, Neepawa and Thompson for being the finalists in this exciting initiative. Each has its own special ambiance and is vying for your vote. Deadline for voting is May 8th of this year.
Although we don’t have a finalist in our region here in the Interlake, we do have much to celebrate. And to help readers know more about my immediate area — the Village of Dunnottar, which encompasses the communities of Matlock, Whytewold and Ponemah as well as the northern part of the R.M. of St. Andrews — I’ve started a blog that will highlight the activities of the Matlock Recreation Club and link to exciting activities and events you can enjoy and plan on attending if you’re in the area.

Regardless of where we live, we should be proud of our communities. And if there is something we don’t like, we should try and change it. Complaining without being proactive will only get you the kind of reputation you don’t want.
May 13th addition to post: Congrats to Neepawa, who was named yesterday as the winner of the Manitoba Homecoming 2010 Contest. Neepawa will be hosting one heck of a party next May, beginning on the weekend of May 8, 2010 and leading up to Manitoba’s 140th birthday on May 12th.
