Ground breaking of new pole shed structure


Local council members joined local community leader to mark the ground breaking of Melita & Area Pole Shed –the newest public space addition in the Town of Melita.

Mayor Bill Holden talks about the impact this development will have on the community.  “The construction of a new public space on a prime location, next to our major tourist attraction, was an opportunity to improve the functionality of the area. It makes a positive impression and adds to the overall attractiveness of the place. We hope the community will take advantage of this new structure and utilize it during townwide festivals, as well as public and private events.” Read more
