Millbrook First Nation in the month of March. Each year, the Millbrook Wellness Program provides family-centered opportunities for the entire community. This year featured family swim, bowling day, a trip to Ski Wentworth, cookie & cupcake decorating, pizza making, kids game day, a movie matinée, and a trip to Crystal Palace. With sunny skies the Ski Wentworth trip was a delight, fresh snow on the courses and no injuries! The Kids game day was entertainment at it’s finest. Dinner was served, the Amazing Mr. Jay performed a magic show that was enjoyable for all ages. After the magic show, the kids raced to the lineup for tickets to play the games and win prizes. Games included the rewarding cake walk, fishing for prizes, sucker pull, ring toss, tic tac toe, basketball, bean bag toss, spin & win wheel and more. Kids with winnings tickets claimed prizes at the prize desk.

Thanks to all the community members that donated the cakes for the cake walk. Chris Nasson, Millbrook’s Wellness Coordinator was as happy as a clam with the outcome of this year’s March Break activities in Millbrook.

New Fisheries Building

The structural problems and concerns about the safety of the Millbrook Fisheries building are a thing of the past, with the arrival of the new Fisheries building. Built by ATCO Sustainable Communities, the building is a modular constructed building. The building took about two weeks to complete the installation and setup. The new Fisheries building offers a professional working environment for the staff members. Now we’ll have to wait for what’s in store for April for Millbrook.
