Mayor Spence 2017

City Mayor's Blog

I am very proud to be the first Mayor for the City of Warman.

From the first time I came to visit Warman over 30 years ago it has been very apparent Warman's charm comes from it's people.  The residents of Warman welcomed my family back then, and they continue to share their friendly community with all who come to live here or visit this fine City.  I am pleased to  have this kind of oppurtunity to share on a monthly basis, the good news and positive actions taking place in our community, the City of Warman.  Grab a cup of coffee and read on what is current and happening in the City of Warman.

“The world is hugged by the faithful arms of Volunteers...”

 I came across this in a national posting this week and thought it was so fitting for this month’s blog...”volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities…” Undeniably, volunteers rock!

Volunteer Appreciation Week, April 12-18, 2015, is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to get involved in their communities. It's about thanking those people in our community for taking the time to make a difference.

On April 16th the City of Warman hosted a Volunteer Appreciation supper to say thank you to the volunteers of the community and to present three very special awards.

The first award was for Youth Volunteer of the Year. This award was presented to a special and talented young lady, Raija McCallen. Described by those around her as “more than just a coach”, Raija has become an exceptional role model to athletes in the gym and school. In addition, her patience and kindness has had lasting effects within the community. She has dedicated hundreds of hours of her personal time coaching the Warman High School Teams. We are so fortunate to have her as a leader within our community.

The Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Matt Misskey. Matt has impacted the lives of dozens upon dozens of young people within the community. He has shown leadership and tremendous dedication to the sport of basketball. Volunteering most of his time coaching, Matt has become a pillar in the development of this sport in Warman.

 

Sonia’s School of Ukrainian Dance was presented the Committee of the Year Award.  The group is a competitive Ukrainian Dance Group for ages 3 to 18 years. Countless hours of work have been dedicated to the restructuring and reorganizing of this group. This dedication is highlighted by the success this group has experienced in Warman. Over the past year, Sonia’s School of Ukrainian Dance, has showcased their incredible talent in and around the community by performing at local events.

The year-end recital for the group will be held Thursday, April 30th, 2015 and Friday, May 1st, 2015 at the Warman Community Middle School. Doors open at 6:30pm and starts at 7:00pm. I invite all of you to attend this great event.

Up.jpgWarman’s population is growing
, and why wouldn't it? This new city is the best community to live, work, play and retire to.

We have some new interesting information about Warman’s population. Approximately 1500 residents are older than 55 years, with the remaining 8,000 under 55. Warman is a young, vibrant, progressive community. It is also a wonderful place to raise a family. Raising my family here has been such a great experience. Now I am fortunate that my grown children are starting to return to Warman with their own families.

Let's keep our community growing, as Warman grows so does the Economic opportunities. The correlation  between these two are completely connected.
