will be leased by the Hanna Rod

and Gun Club where the club

will operate a trap shooting


This is a 20-year agreement

that will expire on Dec.31, 2037,

but also has a termination

clause for either party to end

the agreement with one year’s

notice prior to this expiration


The club is also required to

provide liability coverage.

A clause regarding the maintenance

of the property, which

is to be done by the Hanna Rod

and Gun Club, will be added to

the lease as well.

The club has been operating

the trap shooting facility from

from Laurie Armstrong

and Tannis Voltner of the 100

Women Who Care Alliance

Hanna Chapter.

The group has quarterly

meetings where members

donate $100 and listen to presentations

from nominated local


Once all the presentations

have been heard, the members

vote and all the funds go the

chosen organization.

“As individuals, it is difficult

to make a very large impact, but

as a group we believe we have

the ability to contribute to the

growth of our communities in

ways that we never before

thought was possible,” states

the organization’s website

“To put it simply, we are

‘giving circles’ focused on

making collective gifts to local


“One hundred per cent of the

money that comes in goes out,”

said Armstrong.

The 100 Women Who Care

Alliance currently have 51

members, which is comprised of

approximately 80 individuals.

The group will focus on

building their female numbers

before expanding into youth

groups and possibly even a male


“My ask is that you help

spread the word, and help us get

more members,” said


“The more members we have,

the stronger we will be and the

thought of getting, a minimum,

of 100 people in an hour,

donating $100.

“Five thousand almost brings

them to tears. Ten thousand can

make a huge impact on these


Tree inventory

Grace Curry presented a

Public Tree Inventory report to

council, which was accepted as


Curry also presented mapping

software she used to

document the trees.

The software was used to give

each tree an identification

number and important information

such as GPS location,

species, age, condition, maintenance

records and even photos.

and planning when we are

looking at the parks,” said

Director of Community
