Community Resilience

Hammonds Plains—Lucasville Residents, 

The past several weeks have been filled with devastation and hardship, but they have also reminded me why I am proud to serve as our MLA. The resiliency, empathy, and stewardship, which has been shown throughout (and beyond) the affected areas in Hammonds Plains-Lucasville, is nothing short of inspiring.

Come wildfires or floods, our community should be proud of everything we’ve done to support one another, and all that we continue to do.

I’d like to thank all of the firefighters, first responders, volunteers, neighbourhood associations, and the many other agencies and businesses that stepped up to serve our friends and neighbours in our time of need.

Hammonds Plains—Lucasville August Report

Emergency planning and preparation

A provincewide state of emergency was declared on July 22, in response to the severe flooding that happened across the province on July 21.

The state of emergency was lifted on July 26th, but we must remain prudent. 

Residents should continue to refrain from attempting to access blocked areas to hazardous locations. 

It is important to be as prepared as possible for an emergency situation. I have shared important resources in the past covering quick tips for everyone to use as a guide on what to do in the different emergency situations we could face across our province.

Community Spotlight

Rob's Farm Market

Rob's Farm Market has been a staple in our community from June to October for many years, with Rob bringing the best the Valley has to offer to the Hammonds Plains area, set up beside Vernon's diner.

Rob passed away suddenly in June and his friendliness and stories will be missed by so many, but his family and friends are stepping up to continue his legacy of fresh produce.

Follow them on Facebook for the most current times and updates on what delicious fruits and vegetables will be available at the market.
