Our 8th Gala was held November 4th, 2017.

Our theme was Celebrating our Past Building our Future. With this in mind, we had a presentation of clips from a video that Don and Beth Cruikshank had made of past years in Miami. With Don commentating the video it was extremely entertaining and educational.

We sold copies of the video to interested residents.

We also had a band from Treherne, Manitoba,  Hicktown. The country theme was enjoyed by all and many in the crowd knew members of the band.

Our citizen of the year was our own Gordon Simpson whose accomplishments and activities are many. Gordon is a proud Miami resident.

Grants were handed out to 6 organizations: Miami Railway Museum: $1,775, Miami Children’s Facility: $1,225, Miami Ag Society: $3,500, Miami Curling Club: $3,500, Miami Arena: $2,000, Miami Golf & Country Club: $2,000.
