Final Month For Nominations
Town of Moosomin Parks and Rec 2017 Awards
Moosomin Parks and Recreation Department are currently accepting nominations for the 2017 Parks and Recreation Community Awards of Excellence. 2017 is a special year in Canada as we celebrate our 150th birthday, and with that we look to make our awards special as well. This year the awards will be presented in conjunction with our Homecoming Weekend on July 6 as we officially open Tim Hortons Outdoor Eventplex.
The four award categories are listed below. We will accept nominations up until May 31 and you may submit nominations by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by fax (435-3343) or by mail (PO Box 430 Moosomin) or you can hand deliver to the Town Office. All we require is a letter outlining which award you are making your nomination for and why you believe your nominee would be a deserving winner. The more signatures of support you have certainly can go a long way as well. Winners will receive a free pass for themselves and invitees to our outdoor show in July. They will receive a keepsake with the award information and, perhaps the most cherished of all, will be included on our awards board located within the Moosomin Communiplex.

Canada 150 Celebration Thursday Night Icebreaker
Our Parks and Recreation Department were excited to have the opportunity to host the Thursday Night Homecoming Weekend Icebreaker/Registration on Thursday, July 6. Making this extra special is that the evening will double as the grand opening of our new Tim Hortons Outdoor Eventplex.
With that in mind we spent considerable time determining and deciding on an act for our outdoor stage given the crowd we expect in attendance.
With that we are thrilled to announce we will be hosting a tribute to perhaps the greatest entertainer of all time, The King Elvis Presley. We will have an Elvis Presley tribute act featuring the King along with a four-piece band. They offer three sets including an early “bopping” Elvis, a set of Elvis’s later music, and my favorite, a Vegas set with all the one of a kind attire. Should be just a fantastic way to open the new park!
