• New door manufacturing business for Boissevain

    New door manufacturing business for Boissevain

    It might not be exactly the same, but the story of an upcoming manufacturing business is similar to an old Remington shaver commercial.

    Partners Robert Dyck and Trevor Hicks did not like Findoor so much “they bought the company”, but the revolutionary doors did make enough of an impression that they bought in. Not only that, they will be producing a huge amount of the product in Boissevain in the near future.

    As Dyck explained, in 2018 a young salesman from Findoor visited them at Goodon Industries. He had a little trailer with samples of the company’s doors.

    Council approve HyLife hog barn with conditions

    If conditions are met, Boissevain-Morton will have a new hog barn

    On Thursday, July 4, council gave a unanimous thumbs-ups, with Councillor David Stead not voting due to conflict of interest, to a HyLife hog nursery on the north end of the municipality. However, there are conditions, which the company must sign on to before it becomes official Head of Council Judy Swanson said.

    “Economic development is something we have to for sure look at,” Swanson said. “We also have an agreement that was part of the resolution that addresses concerns people had, so we covered our bases.”

  • Strong turnout, cooperative weather makes fair success

    Strong turnout, cooperative weather makes fair success

    With a good response to a new event and a little help from Mother Nature, the Turtle Mountain Ag Society was able to put together another strong fair.

    The annual event was held from June 22-23. Featuring livestock shows, a demolition derby, display building and other activities, the fair was once again a success.

    “It was very good this year,” said Ag Society President Bryce Scott. “There was very good attendance, with a lot of people walking around all the time.”

    The official figure was about 1,150 people, but that was only the paid attendees. The numbers, strong as they are were probably a little higher.

    There were a few weather concerns going into the fair. What were once dry conditions in Boissevain and area have recently become monsoon-like. There were some big rains in the days leading up to Boissevain Fair, and there were warnings of more during the event. However, they held off.

    On Monday, June 17, a ceremony was held in the school to officially present a donation from the Co-op Community Spaces program to Boissevain School. The grant, from Federated Co-op, was in the amount of $68,900 for a nature play space and outdoor classroom. According to Ryan Polnik of Boundary Co-op, the program has given a boost to many projects in the province, but this is the first one within the Boundary area.
