A secret wish come true

 By Jennifer Carniel
Keeping a secret can be a hard thing to do, especially keeping a secret for five years, which is something Darian Giasson, from Grandview. Five years ago, Darian was granted a wish from the Children’s Wish Foundation and he chose to go to the Olympics.
“I knew my whole family would like it,” explained Darian. “I really wanted to do something you just can’t do any old day.
Darian and his parents, Marc and Sheila, kept the trip a secret from Darian’s two sisters Reagan and Sydney. The girls packed for the trip assuming this year their dad decided to fly the family to their summer vacation in the United States instead of driving. When the Giassons arrived for their flight in Winnipeg on August 3, 2016, Darian broke the news to his sisters that they were going to the 2016 Olympics in Rio. His sister Sydney was so overwhelmed that she cried.
It was a 10 hour flight from Toronto to Rio, but Darian found the flight anything but boring. The Giassons were fortunate enough to travel with several of the Canadian athletes heading out to the games.

GP Municipality upgrading rural water distribution system

Beginning Monday, August 15, 2016 Gilbert Plains Municipality will be upgrading the rural water distribution system with the installation of additional flushout assemblies. 
Dependent on weather, this project may take up to 30 days to complete. Customers may experience intermittent water shut off or reduction in pressure during this time. Areas will be localized dependent on where the contractor is working within the municipality. 
Customers may experience water turbidity due to the increased flushing required during installation. We ask that residents contact the Municipal Office if they are experiencing any unusual or long term issues.
