Candy Wanless was instrumental for the last 6 years to get our playground created from bare dirt. She, along with a dedicated committee, organized fundraisers, planned which equipment to buy, and installed it.
Manitoba Hydro recently gave a grant to Reston School to purchase 40 mature trees for our playground. We plan to keep track of their growth and hope they quickly give shade and shelter from the wind at our school. Mrs. MacKenzie helped get the grant and she will make sure they get the poster.
West Souris River Conservation District looked after securing the Hydro Grants for us and then they (Dean, Tim and Amber) delivered the trees here and planted them. Staff will take turns watering them in the summer.
Murray and Keri Vinck donated a row of willow trees and dug them in north of the playground a couple of years ago. Several had to be replaced but we hope this time they will thrive.
