As we are all aware, Sioux Valley, along with so many other reserves, towns and cities, just endured a record breaking winter storm in Southwest Manitoba that lasted several days, closed many roadways, shut down several businesses and stranded many people, it will take some time for all to recover. Please have patience as we endeavor to return all operations to some sense of normalcy.
