Mowing of Road Allowances

Mowing of Road Allowances

 

Council appreciate the efforts of all landowners
who mow their road allowances.  

Just remember to keep the grass off the road.

The grass works into unwanted windrows during grading, and when
worked into our country roads, it does not improve the quality of your drive.

Disc Golf now in Roland!

Disc Golf now in Roland!


Roland School has installed a 3-hole disc golf course on the school playground! 

 

Disc golf or Frisbee golf, is a flying disc sport in which players throw a disc at a target.  It is played using similar rules to golf.  Players complete a hole by throwing  disc from a tee area toward a target, throwing again from the landing position of the disc until the target is reached.  The number of throws a player uses to reach each target are tallied, and players try to complete each hole, and the course in the lowest number of total throws.

 

Roland School’s first “tee box” is the cement pad by the school gym.  To shoot to the second target, stand at the first target and to shoot to the third target, stand at the second target.

 

A 3 disc set is available for sign out at Roland Memorial Hall, but a regular Frisbee will work too!

 

This is just another way to get active with your family during the warm summer months in Roland!

Roland Memory Garden

Roland Memory Garden


“ Hopeful Dreams entwined with Patience & Time”

Located on the lot south of the Post Office, 68 3rd Street in Roland.

Our Mission:

  • Town Beautification
  • Honour the people from our past
  • Inspire our current and future generations
  • Encourage community involvement and creativity
  • Provide a destination of reflection and tranquility for all who enter

The project was started in 2011 by a handful of residents and has blossomed into a reflection of community spirit and pride.  The lot was supplied by the R.M. of Roland and the project was accomplished due to ambitions of local volunteers.

The signature arch entrance was created by the world renowned sculptor, Jake Goertzen.

Our walker and wheelchair friendly garden includes a beautiful granite table with benches.  A perfect spot to enjoy the garden, meet a neighbour for a snack, a conversation, or a game of cards.  Please come and enjoy!

One of our prized features is a stand of 5 granite pillars on which families may choose to have names of individuals engraved.  If there is someone you would like to add to the pillars, please contact a committee member or the Municipal Office.  It would be our pleasure to assist you.

A dedication engraving on a Memory Pillar may be purchased for
$75.00 per person.

Some of our corporate contributors are:

Rural Municipality of Roland
Roland Friendship Club Inc.
New Horizons Grant
Morden Nurseries
Carman Granite
Windy Ridge Gardens
Carman Area Foundation
Access Credit Union
Delmar Commodities
Winkler Concrete
Bell Electric
Mona Brown Law Corp.
General Metal
Jake Goertzen Sculptures
Peter K Peters
Focal Point Comprehensive Vision Care
Scouts Canada

We are grateful to the above financial contributors, as well as the many individual contributors.  It reaffirms we have an amazing community, full of generous, hard working individuals and businesses.

Support the Memory Garden by giving a Gift Card for special occasions - available at the R.M. Office.

Donations Gratefully Accepted toward the upkeep of the gardens.  Donation should be made payable to the R.M. of Roland, with a notation, "In Support of the Memory Garden".  Your donations may be dropped off at the R.M. Office, or mailed to PO Box 119, Roland MB, R0G 1T0.  A tax deductible receipt will be issued.

A garden requires continuous care and upkeep.  Please take advantage of the opportunity to volunteer by helping to purchase flowers, planting flowers, pulling weeds, trimming shrubs, watering, etc. to keep our gardens looking beautiful.  Contact a committee member anytime if you wish to "Adopt the Garden" for a week or two during the summer months, or to help in anyway.  It is a great opportunity to meet your neighbours and work toward a common goal.  Please walk through the garden, feel free to pull a weed, deadhead a flower, and enjoy the community garden.  Make it yours!

Many hands make light work.

Thank You to all of the volunteers and contributors in the last year!  

The committee is open to any visioning ideas you might have to make the gardens more interesting.  

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact a member of the committee, or the R.M. of Roland.

Please take time and enjoy the garden!

Thank You for Your Support,

Roland Memory Garden Committee

Avoid the Fatberg!

Avoid the Fatberg!


It is a real Drain Pain!

Sewers were designed to take away Wastewater and Toiletpaper.

Our sewers are not designed to cope with the modern disposable products, and these items WILL cause blockages.  Blockages can create difficult and expensive maintenance problems for both the town and home owners.  A blocked sewer line will cause SEWER SURGE, up through your sinks, floor drains, showers and toilets.  They are messy and nasty to cleanup.

What NOT to put down the toilet, drain or garbage disposal

FOG 
(Fat, Oil, or Grease)
Paper or Shop Towels
Dryer Sheets
Wipes
Diapers
Hygene Products
Dental Floss
Non-Organic Materials

If it says disposable, bag it and put it in the garbage.  

If a product is marketed as flushable, that does not mean you should.  

Products claiming to dissolve grease may dislodge a blockage, only to cause problems farther down the line when the grease hardens again.

Biodegradable products are meant to be disposed of in the landfill site.

If it doesn't dissolve immediately in a bowl, it has no place in a sewer...

Dog Walking 101

Dog Walking 101

  • Always walk your dog on the leash, it is for their protection, as much as yours.
  • Take a supply of doggie bags with you when you walk, or better yet, put a doggie bag dispenser on your leash, then you will never be caught unprepared.  Doggie bags are available at your local pet or dollar store, you can even choose bio-degradable or scented bags!

How to use a doggie bag

  • Place your hand inside the bag, like you are putting on a glove.
  • Make a claw-like circle with your fingers and then get as far under the "poo-pile" as possible before lifting up.
  • As you are picking up the "treasure" with one hand, pull the top edge of the bag down and round with the other hand.
  • The poo is contained, just tie a knot and dispose of the bag in your trash bin when you get home.

It works great,
no messy fingers or tools to clean
and...

Your Neighbors will love you!

2018 Recycling Stats for the RM of Roland

2018 Recycling Stats for the RM of Roland


MMSM, Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba, works closely with municipalities to provide support and analysis to ensure costs are managed effectively for tax payers and the stewards that fund up to 80% of recycling costs in Manitoba. 

Thank you for your efforts in 2018.  Manitoba continues to be a leader in residential recycling and we could not have done it without you!

In 2018, the RM of Roland recycled 33042.54 kgs.  
Unfortunatly, that is a decrease of 12.47% from 2017.
Lets put in that extra effort this year to fill those Blue Boxes and keep our community Green!

In 2018, 635 Schools participated in the MMSM Plastic Bag Grab Challenge, and collected 1,903,193 plastic bags!  Since 2008, elementary schools in our province have collected plastic bags for recycling into free fresbees, bird houses, planter boxes, bird feeders and benches for their schools.  The bags were baled and shipped to be recycled into composite decking material and other products. The Challenge for 2019 will run from April 29th to May 3rd.  Check with the Roland School for local details. 

Recycling Reminder # 8

A reusable bag only needs to be used 5 times to have a lower environmental impact than plastic.

Most likely the best resource you will ever find for our area.   Worthy of praise, and Many Thanks to the individuals that work endlessly on this project.  

The Fairview, Bethel and Myrtle cemeteries, final resting places for many of the original settlers of the Roland area.   "The burial records found on this website are not limited to tombstone inscriptions, they reflect the information available from the records of each cemetery. It is acknowledged that despite every effort some burials may never be identified. A database has been included identifying wherever possible the names of the parents of the deceased and, if applicable, any spouse or children. Common ancestors are also included so relationships between those interred may be traced."
