- TOWN HALL
Please see below update from Mayor Watson:
“Unfortunately, this is one of those occasional Tuesdays where 5 out of 7 Councillors are out of town on business. Anyone who has attended a meeting can attest to the ineffectual, non-productive atmosphere that situation creates.
This is also a genuine risk due to such difficult communication and a high likelihood that what comes out if a meeting like this is likely to set us back or slow us down trying to sort it all out afterwards.
The first week in May is Mental Health Awareness Week - it is an annual national event that takes place across Canada. Creating healthy and supportive communities is imperative for the wellbeing of all individuals. Mental health week helps to create spaces and provide information to reduce stigma for those who experience these challenges. Lifting people spirits helps to create good energy and - music can be instrumental in doing this.
In 2016, Norman Wells was lucky to have the Reel Youth project visit our Town for two weeks. Reel Youth facilitated a documentary project with the youth and elders of our Community as well as helped create a series of short files with the participants.
All of these films are available for viewing on the Reel Youth website at: http://reelyouth.ca/normanwells2016.html.
The Town of Norman Wells thanks Reel Youth for their time and effort in working with all of our participants and congratulates everyone who was involved in creating these spectacular films!
As of Wednesday, April 12, the skating rink at the Ray Persson Arena will be closed for the Summer. Thank you to everyone who came out and made it another wonderful skating season!
