A letter was received from Underwood and McLellan En- gineering Consultants, Calgary, who expressed concern at the shortage of residential and commercial space in the new sub-division at Sparwood.

Correction A grant in the amount of 360 from the Prairie Farm Re- habilitation Act aided construc- tion of the Barnwell water res- ervoir and not a grant of 400 from the Taber MD, as re- ported erroneously in the Oct. 26 edition. The Herald regrets any mis- understanding .that may hava been caused by this report. At the same time, material edited from the original story was to report three reasons why the reservoir had in- creased in cost as follows: an increased number of services; relocation of the reservoir; and cost of easement.

Tentative completion time is March or April, 1971. The location is of historical interest to the communty. A portion of it was the site of the former St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Church and church hall. A new Roman Catholic church was built in 1959 on 23rd Ave. and 16th St. The old church was moved. The hall in 1956 became the first separate school. It contin- ued there until the St. Joseph's School was built in 1958 adjac- ent to the-St. Ambrose Church. The old hall (school) and the land adjoining was sold ot the Mennonite Brethren Church. It became a mission chapel for a time. Services were conducted in it. Intermittently it served as a family residence when the need arose. The hall is still on the north- west corner of the hew church site. Sometime prior to construc- tion two houses and the land were purchased. It was neces- sary to provide adequate space for the building and parking. The present (old) Mennonite church vas erected in 1939. It is just north of the town limits. Seating capacity is about 600 persons. Many people connected with it have many fond memories. Rev. David J. Pankralz is the leading minister pf the church. He is assisted by other lay ministe-s, members of the congregation and visiting min- isters.
