Lots to celebrate in Rossmere this summer
Hey there, time traveller!

Since the Legislative session ended in early June, I have given myself to serving our constituency, whether attending Donwood South’s fortieth anniversary or welcoming and helping new Canadians.
It was great to open the new outdoor classroom at Sun Valley School. The advance work done by the local organizing committee was amazing and I was pleased to join other levels of government and add my support to their application resulting in $19,000 toward the project.
Jubilee Church also continues to enrich our community through clothing drives, community kitchen and food bank, family drop in, kids’ programs, women’s wellness and a community garden serving 35 families. I advocated to fund their roof repair and secured almost $40,000 in funding. It was my pleasure to attend the June 18 Community Roots Fair with Premier Stefanson in order to highlight their good work.
I have also participated in events announcing $16 million more to train and staff personal care homes, $700,000 for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the expansion of funding for Candace House to help families grieving the loss of loved ones killed by violent crime. Other notable June announcements have included expanded coverage for cochlear implant replacements, $110 million to address surgical backlogs and the addition of 400 new nursing spots at the University of Manitoba.
I enjoy serving our area and welcome the opportunity to help you or your organization benefit from information, services and grants available. Government exists to serve people, not the other way around. Call 204-289-4545 or email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime if my office can help you.
