Scarecrow Days are this upcoming Friday - Sunday! The yardsale and scarecrow registration deadline was on Friday and the maps have been sent away to be printed. On Tuesday the weekend itinerary will be released and then the maps should be distributed to businesses for you to pick up Thursday evening or Friday morning. Below are some of the posters that businesses have posted on their Facebook. Looking forward to another great weekend here in Souris!
Here is Mia's interview with WCGtv
New Bike Fix Station
The Souris & Glenwood Chamber of Commerce is excited to have the first of three Bike Fix Stations completed and ready for use! Thanks to the Municipality of Souris-Glenwood for working with us on this initiative and our members involved to date: Kowalchuk Construction for the cement pad & Pedersen's Hangar 28 (Dave) for the installation. Stands were built locally by Tufts Machining
On Saturday September 23rd (during Scarecrow Days), two members: River Rat Rentals and E&G Enterprises will be offering demonstrations from 1-3pm. Both on Fat Tire & Regular bicycles. Feel free to bring yours down! (Location: park at the corner of Hwy 2 and 1st St.)
It's proper to hang your bike from the seat. Will also save the paint on the stand.

If there is time, questions may come from the floor. However, these need to be pre-approved to ensure they are appropriate for our event. You can submit by email: email@example.com or we will have a volunteer member available between 6:30-7pm that night to approve. As business leaders in the community, we have organized this event, and are inviting the public to join us. Disrespectful behavior towards our members, volunteers or candidates will not be tolerated.

Well we did it! The PCH Courtyard is all dressed up for fall. I am sure the residents will enjoy this. Thank you to everyone who donated pumpkins, corn and bales

The "Take a book, leave a book" houses in the park were well used this summer!
Thank you to Phil Dyck for building them!
Tiffany Peters, one of our summer students, used her talents to create a beautiful mural on the park and pool office. Tiffany is working towards a career in graphic design. We were so fortunate to have such talent in our community this summer.
