    Vimy Night Fundraiser

    The friends of 26 Field Artillery/XII Manitoba Dragoons Military Museum Inc. held their 34th annual “Vimy Night Celebration and Fundraiser” on April 5 at the Brandon Armoury.

  • Originally from Saskatchewan, Craig Miller was the son of a railway man, so the family moved around frequently. He ended up in Minnedosa for his Grade 12 year, and met Cheryl, the woman who would become his wife. The couple has been married for almost 40 years and went out for four years before that. “She’s still not sick of me, so I’m all right with that!” Miller said with a laugh.
Although his parents kept moving, Miller stayed in Westman to attend Brandon University. He completed his bachelor of science degree at the University of Manitoba, got his nursing diploma at Brandon Regional Health Centre, and his Health Care Administration Certificate from the University of Saskatoon. And for the past 14 years, he’s been a nursing instructor at Assiniboine Community College. But Miller is more than a one-trick pony. In his off hours, meaning every evening, you can find him, knife in hand, carving. He carves almost anything — wood, soapstone, even moose antlers. He’s been doing so for more than two decades and it has become an integral part of his life and his daily routine.

  • Musical Easter eggs

    An Easter egg isn’t just a chocolate treat most kids in Westman will find hidden around their house tomorrow. The phrase also has a pop culture definition, meaning an intentional inside joke, hidden message, or feature in movies, a computer game, book, movie or TV show.
