    Boissevain hosts another patriotic Canada Day celebration

    Although the weather looked ominous during different parts of the day, and did interfere with one or two events, Boissevain’s celebration of the national birthday went on more or less as planned.

    A spot of rain and a few rumbles in the sky could have impacted Canada Day more than it did. According to coordinator Christina Ducharme, overall the event was successful.

    As they say goodbye to their second home for the last thirteen years, the Class of 2018 found school was not a scary place after all.

    The latest graduating class of 27 took their last look at Boissevain School as students on a warm day on June 27. With family, friends and teachers looking on, and the fire bell tolling an unmistakable tribute, they were able to reflect on what is a lifetime of memories.

    Mother Nature reminded us that she could be very cruel on Thursday, June 14.

    After a muggy and at times rainy afternoon, the skies turned black and the wind got up around 6:00pm. Those in Boissevain heard thunder and got a little rain. Those north of town and in other areas were not so lucky.

    A line of dangerous thunderstorms moved in from Saskatchewan, and while many local areas fell under a tornado watch, the storm struck full force, picking up steam in the Hartney area and travelling all the way to Morden/Winkler, with heavy winds and devastating hail. According to Andrew Ayre of Southern Seed north of Minto, it started to get ugly around 6:00pm, striking a little later.

    A large crowd came out to celebrate Boissevain’s past baseball heroes while cheering on the next generation.

    On Friday, June 8, Boissevain Minor Ball held its celebration of Baseball Manitoba’s 50th anniversary. Each minor ball association in the province was asked to note this major birthday and in Boissevain, they decided to honour some of the town’s Hall of Fame inductees before the Centennials’ home opener against the Souris Cardinals. According to Minor Ball’s Crystal Fluker, it could not have gone over better.

    “It was awesome,” Fluker stated. “It was a really good turnout.”
