Greg Wallin saw a year of highlights and how mother nature left Lampman well enough alone after many previous years of flooding.
“Very fortunate year for us, we didn’t have any major flooding this year.” He goes on, “Like it seems over the last several years we’ve had at least one flood event in town that has always done some damage to houses and personal property. We’re fortunate this year we didn’t have that.”
In regards to the milder weather, “In one aspect its nice to see we don’t have the snow, we don’t have the icy streets you know for safety reasons. Although it would be nice for the whole area to see some snowfall for moisture conditions.”
Heading into the 2018 year Wallin mentioned, “We’re looking forward to the New Year, to get our Lagoon on the go and move on.” Even though the cost of the new lagoon is of concern. “Its going to be a Capital Infrastructure that needs to be done for the future.”
“We always have our annual sports weekend here, with the slo-pitch tournament and we had our parade again this year. Trying to make it a bigger event each year, with the big street dance that they have. We get a lot of people, its our one big fundraiser for the community for the year. And its going over very well,” Wallin explained.
