Well, September has arrived and school will be starting next week. It just seems like yesterday that the pool opened. Summer seems to have just flown by this year.
Thanks to all the volunteers that came out to help tidy up the pool, with a very special thanks to the staff of RBC in Ogema. You all did a wonderful job sprucing the pool up.
As well a big thanks to Shelbi Rowland for once again managing the pool and teaching swimming lessons. Also, thanks to all the lifeguards who worked at the pool this summer.
Unfortuantely the boiler gave out this summer, so the Pool will be holding fundraisers to help raise the funds needed to replace the boiler. The first fundraiser was a barbeque at the pool and a midnight swim which was held on August 27th. Thanks to everyone who came out to supper the pool.
Let’s all come together and help the pool raise the funds needed to buy a new boiler so the water will be nice and warm next summer for swimming.

A free evening of music entertainment, hosted by the Pangman Recreation Board, was held on Friday evening, July 20, 2012 at the Community Centre. Music was provided by Pangman’s local talent “Peter Sumbody”. Smokies on a bun, coffee and drinks were served.
Quite a few people came out to listen to Peter. He performed many songs ranging from Country Western to Rock’N’Roll. A big thank you to Peter and his wife Colleen for entertaining us.
At the Annual Meeting of the Pangman Recreation Board it was decided that the inside of the Community Centre needed a paint job. Jackie Wolstenholme volunteered to get the paint and recruit some volunteers.
On Thursday, June 23rd the prep work began and over the next few days the painting was completed.
The Pangman Rec Board would like to thank Jackie Wolstenholme and her crew, Stella Strobl, Jim & Dorothy Madigan, and Arlene Lewgood for the extra time and extra efforts in painting, cleaning and fixing the Community Centre. Your enthusiasm and knowledge on this project is so much appreciated by the community and the Pangman Rec Board. There were many other volunteers who took time out of their day as well to help out and a big thank you goes out to you as well! Thanks again Jackie for heading up this enormous task. The Community Centre looks amazing!
