Ninety (90) people registered to attend the Rural Handi-van meeting that was held in Portage la Prairie on Monday, May 13, 2013. There were eight cancellations and 11 no shows. In total 71 people attended. They represented 35 of the 68 invited Rural Handi-van services (51%).
Of those that did not register 15 represent towns and 9 of those towns are a fair size with one ranking as one of the fastest growing communities in Canada. The remaining 18 are small R.M.s and villages.
The meeting was well received. There was lots to discuss and as expected not enough time.
