Sunrise Corner Salutes Our Local Essential Businesses

On this #ThankYouThursday, Sunrise Corner would like to extend our appreciation to the essential retailers that have really gone above and beyond in recent months. The pandemic has clearly shown how important small-town grocery and drug stores are to the fabric of our community. Both residents and tourists are reminded to support local as often as possible. Not only do they provide the products we all need, these are our neighbours who donate to local fundraisers, volunteer their time at community events, and step up when we really need them.

5 Ways to Enjoy the Summer Solstice in Sunrise Corner

For likely all of human history, people have celebrated the first day of summer – the summer solstice.

What’s the science behind the summer solstice? June 20 is the day the sun travels the longest path through the sky. When summer solstice happens, the North Pole is tilted about 23.4 degrees toward the sun. Solstice occurs when the sun reaches both the highest and northernmost points in the sky.

What does that mean for us? It’s the day with the most sunlight all year, so more time to enjoy the great outdoors! Although this summer is going to look a little different than usual, that doesn’t mean you can’t get outside and enjoy nature. Explore a part of Manitoba you haven’t seen yet – the southeast corner of the province has something for everyone.
