A new industrial park in the town of Dalmeny could see shovels in the ground by the end of May. The project was facilitated by a unique partnership between the developers, Anthony Nienhuis and Ben Vander Kooi of Dalmeny Industrial Park Inc., and the town.

A failed local improvement project in 2015 paved the way for some creative and better solutions. “The greatest thing that happened is, it brought Anthony and the town together to look at the bigger picture,” said Dalmeny town administrator, Jim Weninger.

The Rosthern School of Dance (RSOD) Recital presented three shows for their year-end recital on May 13 and 14, to accommodate all the interest.

Tickets were sold out and the kids were on board.

The school has about 65 students from age three up to high school grads. Thiessen says this year, the kids’ strength and skill improved a great deal. “Everybody commented on it. It was kind of neat! It almost took your breath away to watch those kids.”
