Our mountains of snow are almost gone and a new spring has arrived. Everyone is in high spirits with holiday time — and all that summer offers in the near future.
Our manager's (Mr. Williams) new residence has been started in Elk Point. The basement has been dug and forms are laid for the footings. It will be a happy day when the last nail has been pounded.
Elk Point and surrounding area have been impatiently waiting for spring to see the beginning of construction of their new arena. There are a number of events planned to help raise the $100,000.00 to finish it to perfection. A lot of donations are already in with a lot more promised in the future. With a lot of luck, a lot of work, and most important — a lot of cooperation they should be able to as their motto says — "LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN".
