This week curb and gutter is being installed along the east side of Queens Street between Second and Third Street. There will also be a small section being installed on the SE corner of Lake Avenue and Third Street. The corner has a problem with water flowing over/under the sidewalk and fire hydrant during moderate and heavy rains.
Paving crews will be back sometime after the September long weekend to finish paving Queens Avenue and other approved repairs.
Approximately 40 people attended the official unveiling of the “Captain Keith Mirau Day” plaque this afternoon at the Gull Lake Cenotaph. The Ceremony started at 3 pm and was led by Legion President Gordon Kozroski. The Ceremony concluded with the unveiling of the plaque and a wreath laying by Gordon Kozroski. After the ceremony, all those in attendance were invited to the Seniors Hall for Tea and Coffee.
I had the privilege of speaking on how Town Council came to proclaim August 9th Captain Keith Mirau Day and on the special importance of the plaque. In my speech, I read the letter Tom Frook wrote Council last year asking Council to consider proclaiming August 9th “Keith Mirau Day.” I also read a message of heartfelt appreciation received from the family of Keith Mirau thanking all those involved in the making of the proclamation. I ended my speech with a reading of the official proclamation.
I was very pleased to meet Keith Mirau’s brother Neil Mirau who traveled to Gull Lake today to attend the event. Reporters from the Prairie Post and the Southwest Booster were at the event covering the ceremony. Swift Current Online and Golden West Radio also reported on the event earlier this morning.
