A community work bee held last weekend, spearheaded by the Rimbey Lions Club went over well, with good participation from groups and individuals.
Lions club member Terry Von Hollen said 28 people participated in the work bee, which involved work around the ball diamonds including painting the fences.
Individuals from Victim Services, the Slo pitch Association and Rimbey Lions Club participated as well as individuals from local businesses. Some evacuees from Fort McMurray also helped out.
Funding for paint and supplies came from Rimbey Lions, The Town of Rimbey, The Co-op, Home Hardware and the Agricultural Society.
Von Hollen said the Lions Club has dedicated May as a work bee month, noting if people gave just two hours of their time to beautifying the town much work would be accomplished.
