Neebing News – December 2023

Did you know that all donations to NFRA help to keep your taxes lower?

The Municipality funds Neebing Emergency Services for all basic needs but it’s the contributions from you and purchases made by NFRA that buy extra equipment and training aids that are required for a well-run service. Thus minimizing any need for a tax increase.

Another great reason to support NFRA!

On that note: A Big THANK YOU to all of you who place your sorted bags of pop, beer and metal cans into our collection bins at our landfill sites! The sorting crew is most appreciative of the helping hand that gives us. Liquor and wine bottles and bags brought to the collection sheds also make a huge impact on what we can do for Neebing Emergency Services. These donations really add up! Our annual total is well over $6000 from returnables and metal recycling.

NFRA held, what we think is, our last sorting morning of 2023 last Friday. Thank you to all who came out!

We went from this:

To this, in just over 2 hours:

Isn’t that a great looking shed Kris and Steve built? We were happy to
‘break it in’. Our thanks to Steve McKinnon for also donating the used metal
for the walls and roof, it will keep us dry next Spring 🙂

FARMERS or OTHERS: if you have extra used Mini Bulk Bags you can donate for our use, please contact Kris @ 807-621-3456. The ones we are using for our can collections are getting tattered and full of holes. Thank you!
