When will the water be back on?

Darrell Hinks

Oh my lord . No water for the night ?

no water for the night!

Does this include the school as well for tomorrow?

What!!!! Seriously!! People got babies and toliets needs fluahing!, we didnt have any warning to go get water!

It's going to be a little difficult to get the children up and ready for school since the water is off already. Would be understandable for the school to remain open if it went off after children were gone to school. Any thoughts on this?

Chief & Council Meeting - Agenda 
January 15, 2018

Shoveling snow can be a strenuous activity, particularly because cold weather can be tasking on the body. There is a potential for exhaustion, dehydration, back injuries or heart attack. During snow removal, in addition to following the tips for avoiding cold stress, such as taking frequent breaks in warm areas, there are other precautions workers can take to avoid injuries. Workers should warm up before the activity, scoop small amount of snow at a time and where possible, push the snow instead of lifting it. The use of proper lifting technique is necessary to avoid back and other injuries when shoveling snow: keep the back straight, lift with the legs and do not turn or twist the body. ...

Is this still going ahead tonight?

Chief & Council would like to remind everyone that now that winter has arrived, please remember to take extra precautions when driving.

Service the radiator and maintain antifreeze level; check tire tread or, if necessary, replace tires with snow-traction tires. Keep gas tank full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines. Always use wintertime windshield washer fluid.

Your safety is important!

Can you post more specific information about this please. Where will this be taking place? Where will tryouts be held?

Can off reserve members apply?

Jessica John

Yea

Received a permission slip from the school for this but couldn't sign it because again the only info on it was exactly what is in this post. It didn't say where tryouts would be held or where the games would take place. When I asked Nolen he said..."Gander, I think". I think this event is a wonderful idea and as a parent I'm glad the kids of our community get the chance to possibly take part. The only problem I have is that there is no information being told as to when and where these events will tale place. I couldn't sign the permission slip because I have no idea what I'm giving Nolen permission to do. I don't want him to miss out on a great opportunity so can someone, either whomever posted this post or someone from the school, please post up or send home more specific information regarding this event and the tryouts. Thanks 😊

This is Jerry, the expression of interest was so that the Aboriginal sport circle could determine if their were sufficient numbers of Aboriginal athletes to organize a tryout. Once we know if there are enough athletes in a sport who have competitive experience in a sport, for instance has some one who is interested in basketball played on a team and been coached? Have they played in basketball tournaments? If we have 15 kids who have played on teams and competed in tornaments, then we would schedule a tryout and let everyone know time place and date. I know we have scheduled some tryouts for some sports already, so you can contact Todd Winters at moc.n1516115812bia.f1516115812n@lnc1516115812rsa1516115812. I will also ask him to post the tryout schedule to Edwina ' s Facebook site that you can all share around. I will ask him to get this posted tomorrow. Even if you have not sent in an expression of interest, if your son or daughter wants to attend a tryout that has been scheduled let Todd know and they can come to the tryout. OK ? Call me if you have any more questions.

They should have another one for Older People some of us are still athletes.

realy and i cant come down to retire because i had a crimal record 30 years ago thats what lisa ann john told me
