The 2nd annual Saskatchewan Municipal awards were handed out this past 2008 year and the R.M. of Kindersley was one of the recipients.

They won the Municipal Service Excellence Award. Al Melnyk really spearheaded the water pipeling project, and was on hand to accept the award when the winners were announced.

Other communities to win awards this past year included Buffalo Narrows, Rosthern, Canora and St. Walburg.
