Remember When? This magnificent mural was painted by Sam Kenney’s daughter-in-law, Penney Kenney, on a five-foot saw blade and features life on the Kenney/Smithson Sawmill in the Rimbey district. The picture shows Phoebe Kenney bringing coffee to Sam Kenney and Ken Smithson at the family mill, one of the three which they operated and presented exciting displays for countless visitors over many decades. Sam and Phoebe’s children, including sons Dwayne, David, Doug, Bill, Doreen, Hazel, and Mary-Ann, along with their spouses, children, and ongoing generations of family and friends have and always will actively enjoy this serene and well-kept countryside area for all kinds of year-round activities.
