In 2021, the groups below were able to complete the projects shown with the donation of paint from Southland Co-op.

Assiniboia Aquatic Centre

The Assiniboia Aquatic Centre provides the community with recreational water activities throughout the summer, as well as housing the washrooms for the adjacent campground.

Through the Communities in Full Colour program, we were able to supply paint for all the interior and exterior walls in the facility.

Big Beaver Cultural Centre

The Big Beaver Cultural Centre is in the process of transforming the old United Church building into a cultural centre to showcase the talent of local artists. Southland Co-op and the Communities in Full Colour Program provided the paint to refresh the exterior and interior walls.

Mossbank Community Hall

The basement of the Mossbank Community Hall provides a recreation and fitness centre for the town.     Through the Communities in Full Colour program, Southland Co-op was able to provide the paint for a facelift to the area.

Mossbank and District Museum Inc.

The Museum gathers information about the history of the town, RM's 102 and 103; and uses the displays to educate the public and keep the are history alive.  

Through the Communities in Full Colour program, we were able to supply paint for community event room, the heritage house, and the newly acquired building.

Old Coronach Street Festival

As part of the Old Coronach Street Festival, a mural was painted on the side of a Main Street building.  Two youth community workshops were held to explore ideas pertaining to art and culture as they relate to the community, and to direct the vision for the mural.

Southland Co-op and the Communities in Full Colour Program are pleased to provide the paint for this project.
