Hey there, time traveller!

Welcome to 2020! I hope all residents of the Tuxedo constituency—and Manitoba—had a restful holiday season with their family and friends.
Since the holidays, January disappeared — and February is proving to be another busy month. 
The new year is off to a great start for Winnipeg’s Jewish community; congratulations to Mr. John Diamond for your new appointment as chief executive officer of the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba (JFM).
John’s family has a long history with the JFM. His uncle was one of the original signatories to the JFM Charter in 1964. John understands the importance JFM’s engagement in our community — especially engagement with the new generation of Jewish youth. John also recognizes the need for creativity, modernization and adaptation. I look forward to continuing my dialogue with the JFM and John in the upcoming months.
One of my favourite things about this time of year is the All Seniors Care (ASC) Games at the Shaftesbury Retirement Residence. Earlier this month, I once again brought greetings at the games. I’ve been honoured to have been included in this fun event since its inception 11 years ago.
Participants, family members, and guests all walk away from each annual ASC Games with valued memories. This year, the games were held at 30 ASC Retirement Residences across Canada from Feb. 3 to 7. The games provide thousands of older adults the opportunity to participate in friendly competition to help them stay healthy, active — and go for gold. I look forward to experiencing it again next year.
Of course, it wouldn’t be February without reading — and loving it.
Every year at this time, I look forward to visiting the seven elementary schools in the Tuxedo constituency. I always meet with students and their teachers to share a book with them. This year I chose G is for Golden Boy-A Manitoba Alphabet. The book takes students on an A-Z journey in Manitoba, highlighting all the things that make our great province so great.
I chose this book in part to get students ramped up for the celebration of the year — Manitoba 150! This is a historic year for our province. I was honoured to put forth five nominations for the Manitoba 150 Award; 150 people across the province who have demonstrated outstanding volunteerism will receive this honour. The committee for Manitoba 150 has received these nominations and will be announcing the recipients in April.
