Quite an economic impact

It was pretty exciting to see the tourist train inaugural run come into town on Saturday.   The group of passengers toured the town, went to the museum and had lunch at the Valley Inn. When a group of about 70 comes to a village the size of Alliance it makes quite an economic impact.
Heisler has had three passenger trains stop in the last couple of weeks.  Most of the passengers got off and bought ice cream That has to be a big business boost.
The sidewalks in Alliance are done and they look very nice but Main Street looks a little bare without the trees. The big Spruce trees and flowering plum are still in front of the Valley Inn and also in front of the E.O. Lysne Manor but the ones out on the street are gone.
There was a break in attempt at the grocery store on July 5 or 6. The thief or thieves did not get into the building but the lock on the front door was damaged  and had to be replaced.
There is new siding on the front of Main Street Medley.
There will be a picnic after the church service on July 21. A general invitation is extended to all to come out and join us. It will be the kick off  for the Children’s Summer Program. The program will run July 22 – 26 from 1 to 4 p.m.
The Women’s Institute has a program called Take 10. It lists little things that take about 10 minutes to do to “grow a healthier you”.  July’s Take 10 list is: celebrate July 1 with pride, plan a day at the beach, hunt for treasures at the beach, pick a bouquet of your garden flowers and share them with someone who doesn’t have a garden, stay at a bed and breakfast in your own province, visit a vacation farm in your area, visit your provinces tourism website or read their tourism brochures to familiarize yourself with all that is available in your province and have a ‘stay-cation’.
