Municipal Affairs Minister Greg Weadick presented a $42,000 cheque to Magrath Mayor Russ Barnett on Monday, July 28th in support of the “Canada’s Mormon Trail” tourism initiative. The recently formed Mormon Trail Committee—which includes the communities of Stirling, Raymond, Magrath and Cardston—was the grant recipient. Tourism is playing an increasing role in rural Alberta. Thanks to all of the participating communities for their support of this important tourism visioning, planning and marketing initiative.
Mayor Russ Barnett, Municipal Affairs Minister Greg Weadick, Associate Minister for Seniors David Quest, and our Federal Member of Parliament, Jim Hillyer, announced on Monday, July 28th, a $7,500,000 expansion and upgrade of the Diamond Willow Terrace Lodge here in Magrath. This will dramatically improve the quality of affordable seniors housing in our community for many years to come. Kudos to the Chinook Foundation and its elected representatives from Cardston County, the Town of Cardston, the Villages of Hillspring and Glenwood, and the Town of Magrath for their support for this great project.
With Town Celebrations this Saturday, the dump will be open on Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. rather than on Saturday.
