Community BBQ a Huge Success!!

As part of Pangman Days this year we held a Community BBQ in the Gazebo Park to welcome new residents to our district. We had a good turnout with about 100 people attending. There was a variety of salads and desserts provided by the community and delicious burgers, hot dogs, buns and drinks provided by our sponsors.

Our Mayor introduced the many new residents who have moved to our district over the past few years.  A couple, who are currently cycling across Canada to live in Vancouver, had stopped in for the night and they enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of our community.

A good time was had by all.

Thank you again to our sponsors: Pangman Co-op, Grainbelt Agencies, Bourassa’s, Radius Credit Union, RM of Norton, Oasis, and Kathy’s Place.

New Residence in Pangman!

John and Debbie Sheppard’s new modular home was moved into Pangman last week.

Early in the week the workmen came out to get the site ready. Then the modular home arrived in two (2) pieces.

By Sunday the modular home had been put together. There are still some things to be done before they can move in.

This house makes a nice addition to our community. Congratulations to John and Debbie Sheppard on your new home.

Welcome to New Residents – Gavin & Debbie Porter!

This past year we have a number of new residents in town and would like to say Welcome to all of them.  We invite all the new residents to a Barbeque on Friday, August 6th at the Gazebo in the Park. It is pot luck with the burgers and buns being supplied.  We hope to see all the new residents there.

Over the next few months the Economic Development Board will be presenting all the new residents from January 2010 with Welcome Baskets.

We hope that you are enjoying Pangman and hope to see you at the Barbeque and other town functions.
