A local family is making sure Boissevain gets a little help to meet the ever-changing community needs by donating $10,000 to a Family Legacy Fund with the Boissevain & Morton Foundation. Alex and his wife, Helen, and their two children, Tim and Judy, came to Boissevain in 1963 when Alex was transferred with Manitoba Telephone System.
The McIntosh family were down-to-earth, working-class people who believed in community involvement. Once they settled in Boissevain, they knew this is where they wanted to plant their roots and raise their
family. For this reason, leaving a bequest to the local Foundation was a perfect home for their charitable giving, and because their fund continues to grow, the amount will increase in value each year, which is good news for Boissevain. Alex passed away in March 2016; Helen currently resides at Westview Lodge.
