Neepawa, MB

Neepawa is a town in Manitoba, Canada located on the Yellowhead Highway at the intersection with Highway 5. As of 2006 its population was 3,298.[1] Neepawa was incorporated as a town in 1883. It is located in the Rural Municipality of Langford and bordered to the north by the Rural Municipality of Rosedale. Neepawa is the self-proclaimed Lily capital of the world in part because of its Lily Festival.[2] The town has also been named "Manitoba's Most Beautiful Town", more than any other community in the province.[3]

ECONOMY

The economy of Neepawa and the region is strongly dependent on agriculture. The rolling fields in the area support many types of crops and livestock operations. Neepawa serves as a major agricultural service centre for many of the producers in the region.

More prominently, growers in Neepawa produce some of the finest and most diverse lilies in the world. As of 2009 over 2,000 kinds of Lily were grown locally.[2] These flowers are shipped directly from Neepawa to many of the major international floral markets.[citation needed] Neepawa proclaims itself the "Lily capital of the world" because of this.[2] Neepawa also attracts a number of tourists throughout the year in part because of the lilies. An estimated 12,000 people visit the Lily Festival and Neepawa each July.[2]

As well as being an agricultural centre, Neepawa's businesses serve as a shopping and retail centre for much of the area's residents.

I love learning about people’s New Year’s resolutions. The enthusiasm that comes with the New Year is contagious. And there is this major surge in willpower to take on new challenges. The problem shows up one month later. There is a massive drop-off in the number of people actually doing anything about their resolutions. This applies to commitments big and small. The question is which 4 ... Read More...
