Heartland Recreation Commission
2023 Color Fun Run/Walk is back!
On Sunday, September 17 at 3 pm, Heartland Recreation Commission will be hosting it second annual color run in MacGregor. This is a free event, but donations will be accepted for next years event. 2023 Color Fun Run and Walk is a walk/run for the whole family, it is around 5 km in total. There will be 7 stations where you will get wet and then powdered color will be thrown at you. We will all meet at the Stride Centre in MacGregor, have a simple warm-up and then people will go on their way - they can run, bike, walk - last year we had kids on bikes and people walking their animals - dogs and goats. We do have stuff to purchase if you wish ahead of time online but not necessary to purchase anything. We ask that everyone register so that we are prepared for the right amount of people. Visit the Heartland Rec facebook page for the google link to register. Last year was so much fun we decided to bring it back.
Austin Truck Show
Love it when you hear the rumbling of semi truck engines in your neighbor's yard first thing in the morning. It is always a treat to watch any of his "big trucks" roll by. Saturday the trucks were off to Austin's second annual truck show! This was a fundraiser for the Austin MB Fire Department. What a great turnout! Incredible looking trucks and fire engine!! Great food! Bouncy castles for kids! Much thanks to Lindsey Smith-Winters and her many helping hands for organizing such a great event! Small town, with big heart!!
