Community services has a new lady at the helm.

Cindy Bowie took over as director of community services July 14, replacing Peter Stenstrom, who has moved to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia as director of the bible camp in that community.

Bowie, who lives southeast of Camrose on a family farm is settling into her new position and looking forward to meeting everyone in the community.

A graduate of the University of Alberta where she studied recreation administration, Bowie worked as director of community services for the towns of Ponoka and Barrhead previously.

“I always heard good things about Rimbey and the facilities here,” she said.

She said she is pleased to see the pool is functioning well this year and the splash park is operational.

Bowie, who has been commuting is looking forward to moving to Rimbey soon and bringing her faithful companion, Akida, a Japanese Bear Dog with her.

“He is always with me,’ she said. “He goes where I go even though he is beginning to lose his hair and his good looks.

The amiable new director said she plans to spend most weekends in the summer helping her brother with their family farm.
