The wintry weather is a reminder of what brings everyone in the RM of West Lake-Gladstone together – the rink.
“The arenas – the hockey, the curling, the baseball in summer – are the big things in the community,” says West Lake-Gladstone Mayor David Single.
The newly-amalgamated RM is home to more than 3,000 people and includes the communities of Gladstone, Plumas, Langruth, and Westbourne.
He says kids learn to play together in their small communities in elementary school, then come together for high school in Gladstone.
