The Westman Softball Association along with the Westman Adult Orthodox Leagues, Brandon Slo-Pitch League and the Westman Old-Timers have undertaken a project to build a new softball facility in the City of Brandon. The project will address the growing need for ball diamonds in the City, replace facilities recently lost around the City, provide safe playing conditions for all softball enthusiasts, provide a venue to host tournaments, Provincial, Western and National championships and increase economic benefits for the community through additional softball events. The planned facility will include 4 full-sized diamonds and 4 mini diamonds for youth ages 4-12, a canteen and washrooms.
Century 21Westman.com’s golf tournament fund-raising efforts will be used yearly to assist various groups that have been created to support local community projects, mostly have one-time needs and do not normally receive funds other than the volunteers joining together to make a difference in their communities.
If you know of a fundraising effort in the Westman community that needs that extra hand to meet their goals please call Annette @ 204-725-0555.

Easter Seals “Kids to Camp”
Enhancing the quality of life, self-esteem and self-determination
of Canadians living with disabilities.
One of every 7 Canadians report having a disability
“Easter Seals has shown me that I can do anything!” ... 15 year old Hayley Redmond
Easter Seals camps provide first in a lifetime experiences for many Canadian youth living with disability. Programming revolves around developing the child’s independence, confidence and social skills as many campers will leave the comfort and safety of their home for the first time when heading off to an Easter Seals camp.
Other services include year-round active living opportunities, as well as the provision of specialized mobility and access equipment such as mobility aids, assistive technology, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility.
Normally these assistive aids are cost prohibitive for most people and families. With help from its donors and sponsors, Easter Seals works to ensure that everyone with a disability has access to the equipment and services they need to make the most of their abilities.
