Cargill's Generous $10,000 Donation to Assiniboia High School
"Cargill's continued success depends on the growth and health of the communities in which we operate. That's why we work with a diverse group of global, national and local organizations to bring positive, measurable improvements to communities around the world. We provide support to organizations, projects and programs that fall in three focus areas: nutrition and health; education; and environmental stewardship and as such, are proud to have been able to recently support the programs underway at Assiniboia High School.
Science curricula is currently undergoing some changes in the province with an accent on ensuring the needs of our students are being met for their future endeavors. The new curricula supports areas like environmental, physical, and finally health sciences. All of these areas should allow our students to be prepared for the 21st century and its many challenges. ACHS, and its facilities for science, were in need of an upgrade to better allow our students the opportunity to further their knowledge in science.
With the help of our partners from Cargill, we hope to give them the facility and tools to best prepare for their future. ACHS and Prairie South would like to thank Cargill for their investment in our youth, and thank them for their generous donation to the upgrade of the ACHS science lab."

Assiniboia in the running as the Rider Nation Community!
It was announced at the Rider game on Saturday, August 17 that Assiniboia is one of eight finalists in the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration. Very exciting news for the town!
Assiniboia was selected from 29 other communities based on an essay and photo submission. Now it gets really exciting, the grand prize winning community will receive $50,000 towards a wellness initiative. The 2nd and 3rd place communities will each receive $25,000. All three communities will receive an extra $10,000.00 to host a Rider Nation Celebration party in their community. This is an event in which the whole community is invited to come out and show their Rider Pride.
Assiniboia submitted the new Civic Centre project as the local wellness initiative. They can only make the top three with the help of people like you. The community with the most votes will take home the prize!
Voting will take place online from August 17-September 11. Go to http://www.101greycupfestival.ca/vote to cast your vote. For the Voting, an individual will be able to vote once every 12 hours. So that would be once every 12 hours from a individual computer. If you have multiple computers in an office building for example, each computer could still vote once every 12 hours.
Be sure to encourage your friends, family and neighbors to vote, vote, vote! Help Assiniboia bring home the prize and the pride!
It's the first day of school!
Wishing everyone a happy and safe first day of school!
