Hello to our residents and visitors in the Municipality of Russell Binscarth!
Summer is moving along very quickly, and there is much happening in our municipality. The pools and parks in both towns are full of activities; the Recreation Department has day camps of all kinds offered throughout the summer, along with other special events, so please check out the summer plans!
The Russell Library is a beehive of activity, and I especially encourage you to support their BBQ lunches and Farmers Market every Friday. For our golfing enthusiasts, check out the Binscarth and Russell golf courses – both look to be in great condition! I highly recommend you to take advantage of all the great patio dining experiences offered by our restaurants, and enjoy dinner in the sun or under the stars!
The Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Offices have teamed up for “Project Hometown” – an initiative to promote and encourage local shopping. Participating businesses offer the opportunity to win “Home Town Rewards”, just by entering your cash register receipts after making a purchase. Draws are made every Friday, so “Explore Local, Shop Local, Stay Local”.
There is more economic activity going on in the municipality this summer, which is great for our area! Some of our businesses are, or have already, relocated to new, updated locations; construction of new businesses is underway; and some exciting new developments are set to begin late summer/early fall, so stay tuned in to the progress as we move along!
On behalf of the Council and the residents of the Municipality of Russell Binscarth, I extend a huge “thank you” to all of our employees and summer “Green Team” students, for their efforts in making our municipality look beautiful! The parks, flower beds, and hanging baskets are lovely and certainly make our communities inviting to visitors and locals alike, as we drive down our Main Streets.
I am out and about on “Mondays with the Mayor”, and I stop in at many locations throughout the municipality to chat. If you prefer a private in-person meeting, please make an appointment with me and I will be happy to meet with you in my office to discuss your issues.
Thank you and have a wonderful summer!
Judy Snitynsky, Mayor
