New Community Patio

IWRC is excited to share with you, our New Community Patio. Our Patio was made possible thanks to the generous donation from the Staff of Diageo, Gimli Plant, as well as contributions made from Diageo’s corporate office. THANK YOU DIAGEO! We chose a circle, to us it is a symbol of community coming together, as well it is an inclusive shape where everyone faces each other, together. We also chose a variety mismatched bricks, we did this to represent the individuality and uniqueness of each person that will use the patio. We are all so different yet can come together and fit nicely in the circle. We are excited to use our community Space with our clients and hope to share in the future with our community when it is safe to do so (COVID-19). If you are interested in using our community patio please send your inquires to iwrc2@mymts.net.
