ROSSLAND COUNCIL CONNECTS February 2017 Issue #22
Message from Mayor Kathy
This year’s Winter Carnival was incredibly successful. I don’t think we’ve ever had so many visitors! Many thanks to the organizers and all the volunteers who put in countless hours to make this event the best winter carnival ever. What a fine tradition for our town!
It’s been fabulous to see all the new snow and the skiers that have come to town. Lots of people were here for the Under 16 races at Red Mountain early in the month, as the event filled town up with competitors, coaches and family and friends. Red Mountain continues to be an economic generator for our entire region.
