Thank you!

Thank you to Ed Gibbons for taking us around town and sharing the history behind Town of Gibbons.   What an amazing accomplishment with completed developments and new projects on the go.   Great to hear major corporations coming in to set up shop in your town! 

We had the pleasure of meeting many representatives from Town of Gibbons when we hosted dinner event "Roast of Councillor Ed Gibbons (Ward 4)" when he retired in October 2017.   Since then, Town of Gibbons has been members of North Edmonton Business Association, attending many of our events and inviting us to meet their residences and businesses.  

Thank you for sharing information about Project 39 or P39 - development of 39 new homes being built. 

"Rooted in Family" is what we saw when we toured the town.   We are looking forward to coming back and checking out treasures at Town of Gibbons, garage sales - considered to be one of Alberta's largest community garage sales with hundreds of vendors who come from all over Alberta []. 

The packed room showed the interest that businesses and individuals have in what your town has to offer.  For information about P39 or what Town of Gibbons has to offer, please visit their website at

Thank you for being members of NEBA and we are excited to work with you and seeing your town grows.
