Summer Job Opportunity

The Portage Regional Recreation Authority is looking for an individual or a couple different individuals who would be interested in working some hours at Delta Beach Campground this summer. The majority of the hours would be Friday-Sunday but would include some weeknight work as well.

The job would entail cleaning of the seasonal and public washrooms, general cleanup of the campground and public beach area after 4pm and on weekends and confirming camping reservations. The RM has a summer student who will do most of this throughout the day, while doing other duties out at Delta.

This year they are interested in someone being able to clean the washrooms Friday evening before 6PM, Saturday and Sunday morning around 8AM and again around 4PM. The majority of our camping reservations start on Friday so on Sat & Sun it would only be off an on cleaning the washrooms. The person wouldn’t have to remain on site all day. they are going to be in contact with a local security company who will be “on call” if anything needs to be dealt with at the campground.

For more information contact:

David Sattler, CPA, CGA

Manipogo Sightings

CBC has a great article about Manitoba lake monster sightings and stories. Below is a picture taken when two fishermen, Richard Vincent and John Konefall, claim to have seen a large creature from their boat on Lake Manitoba in 1962(Photo from the CBC Article, courtesy of Richard Vincent):

The name Manipogo is a hybrid of Manitoba and Ogopogo(the famous Okanagan Lake, B.C., monster) first appeared in 1960, a year in which a number of sightings were reported, was created by Tom Locke, a land inspector in charge of planning the provincial government’s program for public playgrounds and recreational parks.

The article is a great read, and can be found by Clicking here

Keep an eye out for Manipogo this summer! 😉

Delta Beach work by Lakefront Restorers

Lakefront Restorers is coming to Delta before the May long weekend to commence the following work:

  1. Grading and levelling into “sink holes” of existing sand infill from where the geotube sections were removed last year.
  2. General grading and levelling of the landward side. This includes the removal of vegetation in these areas.

We have asked all our members to write to you as well.
