Everything is starting to look greener and more lush! A friendly reminder to village residents that there is a level one fire ban on, but that campfires and barbecues are still okay. It’s getting to be that dry time of year again where we need to be extra careful when it comes to open flames!

Storm Bantam Female hockey team would sincerely like to thank the Standard Lionettes and Lions for sponsoring the team to go to Provincials in Hinton. The girls played very well considering half were ill, some were injured and they had a small roster. They tied the first game, won the next three games but lost in the semifinals in a close game. Thanks again to all who helped them get to Provincials.
