The Moosomin Chamber of Commerce has announced the recipients of the Community Recognition Awards. Awards will be going to two groups and two individuals this year:

Awards will be presented April 28 to the following:

- The doctors of the Moosomin Family Practice Centre in recognition of their contributions to the community. The doctors have come up with a model of rural practice that is starting to be replicated elsewhere, with the doctors operating out of one clinic and providing coverage for one hospital, but operating satellite clinics in surrounding communities. They have ensured steady and reliable medical services in Moosomin and surrounding communities.

- The Moosomin Regional Park board for the board's efforts in promoting the region and expanding the park's draw. The Regional Park has hosted two very successful Living Skies Come Alive fireworks competitions that attracted thousands of people and has a third planned for this summer.

- Dan Davidson will be honored for his investment in the community and his work efforts in attracting new businesses to the community. Davidson is the owner of The Red Barn and Dano's, and is developing a new strip mall that will include a Subway Restaurant.

- Mike Schwean for his work in promoting recreation and co-ordinating improvements at the Communiplex and Bradley Park. Several improvements have been made to the park and the Communiplex in recent years, under Schwean's direction. Several upgrades are planned for the park grounds this summer, and Schwean is also spearheading efforts to add a dressing room and meeting room to the Communiplex.

The awards will be presented at the Community Recognition Awards at the Conexus Convention Centre on Saturday, April 28. The evening will include a supper and will wrap up with a cabaret featuring Shameless.
