Souris Personal Care Home Courtyard
Some of you may remember that I went to the Souris Care Home Courtyard and snapped some pictures of the volunteers planting the flowers this past June. Well, I went back this week to get some more pictures to show you all how beautiful the courtyard has become with all the hard work from Cheryl Tanguay and her volunteers!
Right now the main source of fundraising is done by Cheryl selling crocheted towels, dishcloths, bowl cozies, and a few other things made by a couple of dedicated volunteers. Anyone wanting to donate towards this cause or volunteer an hour and a half of their time once a month, during growing season please contact Cheryl at 204-741-0708
What a beautiful place for the residents and their families to enjoy.

Hole In One
Congratulations to Rita Martens of Brandon who got a hole in one with her seven iron, on hole #8 right here in Souris, July 23/2021. Thank you Shelley Hoy for the information!!
A new business River Rats has opened in Souris! Here is what their first post said on their Facebook Page. River Rat Rentals | Facebook
"Hello, Rat Pack,
We are happy to announce that River Rat Rentals is officially open for business!
We are locally owned and operated by Caleigh Walker and Cassie Quadrelli, who are both mamas, educators, and third-generation river rats.
Collectively, our two families spend most of our time outside, on the river. We love year-round activities that keep us exploring and having fun. Be it paddling, skating, fat biking or snowshoeing, there are always ways to get outside and enjoy nature in any season.
We want to share what we love, so get ahold of us today and come for an adventure!"
Roof Crüe is looking to hire! Here is a post they made on their Facebook yesterday!
"Hey Roof Rockers
We are so touched by all the support we’ve been receiving over the last few months. This experience has been amazing thanks to y’all. With that being said we are growing much quicker than originally anticipated.
We are looking to hire a few full-time laborers for seasonal work. Experience is necessary and must practice exceptional safety standards.
Resumes can be emailed to email@example.com
Only those selected for an interview will be contacted."
Peacock Days Events
This list of events is available on the website under the events tab, on the printed flyers that are free at Lt's Corner Store, and on the Facebook event called "Peacock Days and Fair".
Anytime Fitness Pre-Memberships
This week Anytime Fitness opened its doors to take pre-memberships! Although the gym isn't quite ready to open just yet, all members are getting access to the Brandon gym until they are ready, which is most likely going to be the beginning of September. The first 100 people to pre-register got the best rates and a free swag bag! I reached out to Amber and Bryan White who are the owners/managers to ask them how their pre-memberships went.
"The Souris and Area community have welcomed Anytime Fitness with open arms and we had a great first week! We are happy to have such a diverse first group of people ranging from ages 15-77 so far. We have put Souris on the map with one of the most successful first weeks for Anytime Fitness pre-opening sales! We will be continuing pre-membership sales over the next few weeks at a reduced price that increases every 25 people, so hurry in! We have also made more swag bags and have put contests on our Facebook page. We welcome everyone to tour the club, even if you're not signing up, to see what everyone is talking about. Once Souris opens, members will have access to all 4500+ clubs globally with no extra charge, one-to-one personal training, group training and workshops will be offered with a variety of options as well as programming for athletes."

Did you know that 49 degrees has a beautiful sitting area behind their business? It wasn't always so nice, this week they shared a before and after picture. Wow-what a transformation, great job! Make sure to go and get some ice cream and enjoy this great space.
Peacock Days Concerts
We are excited to announce that with recent restrictions being lifted, the outdoor concerts are now just regular concerts and not drive-in during Peacock Days next weekend! If you would feel more comfortable in your vehicle still then that's fine, you can still park and watch, maybe bring a lawn chair to sit beside your vehicle, but you are also allowed to gather in front of the band like normal as well! Bring a lawn chair if you would like! The drive-in movie is still a drive-in movie and everyone is expected to be in there or by their vehicles for the movie.
Need candy for your parade float next weekend? Then head on over to Lt's Corner Store!
5kg boxes of wrapped candy $42.99 +tax. (.86 cents/100g!)
Available choices: maple dairy toffee, mint toffee, choc mint, sour lemon drops & strawberry
