MGS Capital Campaign Update
What a great start!! As of April 24, 2013 MGS has received $11,085.00 in contributions from 87 people. Since our Campaign goal is $30,000 we are over one third there. A big thank you to the donors who have been so generous. We are hoping that contributions will continue to flow in – the Campaign runs until June 30. Of the 87 people who have contributed, 75 (86%) are current MGS members and 12 (14%) are former MGS members. Of the current members, 50 (67%) reside in Winnipeg and 25 (33%) reside outside of Winnipeg.
Members and Friends of MGS have received a Fund-Raising Campaign letter in the mail and we urge you to respond generously.

It is time for MGS members to start thinking about who they would like to see honored by the Society at the fall annual meeting. The "Eric Jonasson Award" is given to one MGS member each year who has made an outstanding volunteer contribution over the years to the goals of MGS. The "Flo Cox Awards" are presented yearly to MGS members who have rendered exemplary service over a long period of time or exceptional service over a shorter period of time. Several awards for this may be made each year.
Any member can make a nomination for the above awards and must be accompanied by a written article about the person and their contribution to the Society. Please send to the Awards Chair person, Jim Rutherford by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail to him at Box 185, Winnipeg Beach, MB R0C 3G0.
Please visit the MGS Events Page for more information on exciting upcoming events such as our MANITOBA DAY OPEN HOUSE and the MGS GARAGE SALE.
