Good easy to use site. More info on hiking trails, wildlife, bed and breakfasts
would be great addition. Planning on visiting the area for photography
in the next few days. Thank you!! from John Morgan, Argyle MB March 2017

The Inglis Commitee is working so hard and I applaud you and appreciate everything you do.   Inglis is my home town from long ago, and when I visited about 10 years ago, I was in awe of the way that the younger people had maintained our tiny community. Beautiful location/access to the Ski Hill/crafting/artists/naturalists/log cabins/water-ways/soooooo...much to offer.
Thank you to the Inglis commitee for caring for our hometown as you have done.    I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Lorraine Mitchosky August 2016

Appreciate the comment of "Nicely done thanks" from pneuhofer@yahoo.ca August 2016

Our daughter, Amy, and her husband, Nate Wendell, and their two children will be moving from Louisville to just north of Inglis in one month. Nate will join his dad at their MacNutt, SK honey farm. Amy is a psychologist and will seek work in the area. Jack & Ruth Teeple, Louisville Kentucky. May 2016

I looked up Inglis on a map (ok..Google maps) after being in contact with a customer who is a resident of Inglis. It looks like a fine small town. I often wonder what it would be like to live in small town after living for 50 years in suburbs of Montreal. All the best to you... Richard Gagnon, Chambly QC Feb 2016

See you soon for the wedding in June! We're excited to experience everything Inglis has to offer :) Josh & Kati, Kelowna BC Jan 2016

I'm looking for family of my mother's that lived in Inglis in the 1930's to 1950's. My mother Martha was born there in 1939 and her mother's name was Rose Schmidt. She had two sisters Mary and Dories. If you can help me in anyway that would be great because they are gone and i need answers. Thank you so very much.

My wife, Dianne & I (Ted Schellenberg of Oak Bank MB) visited Inglis with my mother Marjorie Schellenberg (nee Dyck) on Thursday July 17 2014. My Mother, Marjorie Amy Dyck, was born in Inglis, MB on March 12, 1928. Her Father, John C Dyck worked at one of the elevators in Inglis. If anyone has any information in regard to my grandfather's employment in Inglis (i.e. which elevator, over what period of time, etc) please contact me tdschell@mts.net. Thank-you. July 2014

I grew up in Inglis and am curious about the website; where I search for familiar family names and remember the years I spent there !954 to 1967. My Dad was the grain buyer at the Paterson Elevator. Judy Brandson - Winnipeg March 2014

I'll be visiting Inglis with my band Pilot Project on Mon, Feb 18th and we are playing an evening show at the Inglis Hotel. Check it out. You are right... Everyone I have talked to has been very friendly. I'm impressed. Cambridge ON Nick Fernandez. Feb 2013

I lived in Inglis from the age of 3 to 16. It was a small, close knit village and I have fond memories of my childhood years. Hoped to see some familiar names in the guest book.(Judy Maryniuk). Jan 2013

Was looking for info on the "Prairie Giants" & knew they were in Inglis. Might come out next summer to see them "live". I am originally from London (England). Gerry Sherman Winnipeg. September 2012

My daughter is coming to Canada to work at Assessippi Ski field in November so I am trying to find out as much info as I can. She and her friend didnt want to work at a big field. They wanted to be at a smaller location that enabled them to live and mix with the local people. They are looking forward to their trip. I am a little anxious that it so far away and in my way of thinking a bit remote. I am learning a lot about the area reading up about the vastness of the plains etc. I am sure they will have a great time. I dont think they really know too much about how cold it will be and the vast distances they will be travelling. I hope they have fun work hard and enjoy all the new animals they will encounter. ps I am a NewZealand primary school teacher and your little school sounds fantastic. Claire Hunt - RedBeach Nth Auckland New Zealand. August 2012

Mike Dunkin - York SC - I miss see you all. We are hopeful we can visit next year. July 2012

Derek McKay - Winnipeg MB - I lived in Inglis since I was born and we left in 1956 (I believe) as my father Lawrence McKay got a job as a travelling salesman with Brownstones Cloting. My grandfather
Albert owned the land where the Asessippi Ski resort is. I loved your site and how the town was
built up little by little and I could picture everthing you said. Would like email addresses of alot
of people so we could reminisce. My email is derzanne13@yahoo.ca Thanks. July 2012

Tom Ziprick - Allan SK: Am presently working on both family trees for the Zipricks & the Zimmers.
Will be making a "road trip" to the area this summer to visit surrounding area.

Irene (Sereda) Frederickson Central Butte SK - Memories of Inglis are many and are treasured.
In 1952 - 1953 I had the privilege of teaching at Lockerby School.
I shall always remember the students and the many people I met
that year and some that I met in later years. I spent many years in the Yorkton
area so it was not unusual to meet Inglis people in hospital, funerals, etc. Saturday
nights were great times in Inglis including the shopping. I still have some of my china purchases.
The article in THE SENIOR regarding the Lockerby hockey team in the mid fifties
caught my eye as most of the names mentioned were familiar. Willie Ziprick and
Melvin Honke had been my students, I boarded with Roland & Esther Liske,
used to keep in touch with Ken & Sophie Klimack...
Inglis, and especially Lockerby, are always close to my heart.

It was so neat to find this site.
  I used to live in Inglis when I was a little girl and my thoughts
have often gone back there.  I couldn't have asked for a better environment
to grow up in. My dad was the Pastor at Holy Trinity Lutheran
from about 1986 - 1991; Pastor Erickson. 
It looks like a lot has changed but not as much as I had feared.

more of that Inglis hospitality.
Thank you all

Congratulations Inglis!  Its wonderful to see the community remains progressive
and vibrant as evidenced by the nearby Assessippi Ski Hill, Lake of the Prairies,
Inglis Heritage Elevators, Assessippi Provincial Park, etc.

the world and when I hit Inglis 2007 I decided this is home.

Great Job!
Nice job on the website. Great to see the community spirit alive and well,
and promoted through the webpages of your site. Every other fall I get the chance
to come back to Inglis at our camp at Blue Wing and enjoy the goose
hunting with my brother Bill (local resident now).
Every time I'm in Inglis I enjoy the hospitality and kind welcomes
from everyone I meet. You have a wonderful town.
Don't get TOO big with all the popularity.

Your history mentions a Wes McIntosh as having a garage in 1922.
My family, the "McIntoshs", had a farm near Rossburn and I had an uncle Wes.
I think this could be rhe same fellow.
Is there any reference that the "Wes" mentioned was from Rossburn??
Also, my grandfather was Arthur Courtney Matthews "A. C. Matthews". At one time
in the 1920s he was an elevator operator in Inglis Is there any mention of him
in your towns history?
I don't know which company he worked for.

I am looking for Colin Sudbury - he is the brother of Gill Balchin (nee Sudbury),
who was once married to my brother Rae Balchin.
We have lost touch with Gill, the last we heard she was living in
Aqaba, Jordan, and I am hoping that the C Sudbury listed in your town
may be her brother and can give me information as to where she is now.

I do
I make that a promise

So many years have gone by....and so many changes.
I long for the days of yesteryear,.....but as we well know....those years will
never be reclaimed. I'm smiling with great pride at the accomplishments
of the Inglis community and the younger generation and I applaude
them for not only maintaining our precious hometown, but also for their
creativity and energy in preserving the best of Inglis. Their ideas and hard work
have brought a freshness and uniqueness to our little town....
and thoughtfully still.... the planners and organizers of the community of Inglis,
have saved...just enough........to retain the original magic of my hometown....Inglis.
Thank you all so very much for all you do.
Much appreciation,

My uncle Clarence farmed near Roblin on land (given to him I believe
by the Canadian gov't) for service in world war 1. His boy Clary, my cousin had a
pony named Fly who bucked me off every time I ried to ride him. I also watched in
wonder as his horses came out of the barn in the morning and assumed their proper
place to be harnessed..no tractors the..1938 approx.
