Magic 97.1

Sigh. Dreaded Raccoon Eyes.

A weekend full of outdoor events - golfing - slo-pitch tournament - and Candace has a spectacular pair of "raccoon eyes".

Here's her selfie:


Ok, maybe it's not so bad after all...

But seriously - it was severe enough to make a public appeal for help.

Sunshine Safety!


Ain't THAT the truth?!

Seriously though - take some precautions if you're out in the heat. Candace went golfing yesterday at Elmwood Golf Club and her legs (and arms and face) are just at littttttle bit pink today.

Today's UV index calls for 9 - ever wonder exactly what Environment Canada means when they're talking about that?

Look no further!


There - the mystery is solved. Let's avoid situations like this:


Also - don't forget to hydrate well, because Groovin' In The Park with the City's Community Services department - tonight's activity is at 7pm at Elmwood Park, featuring Foot Stompin' Fitness presented by Speedy Creek Cloggers.

Thursday at 10am is Peripheral Heart Action Body Burn.

Fundraiser for Juvenile Arthritis

Had the pleasure of meeting Taiyha Reinhart and her family on Sunday at the Movie Matinee Fundraiser for Juvenile Arthritis.  Taiyha is only 6 years old and suffers from Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.  When I think of Arthritis, I think of myself as an adult feeling sore and stiff, without knowing that it can happen at any age and there many types of Arthritis.  This past weekend was about raising awareness and money and they had 200 people that took in the movie matinee fundraiser and raised over $5300 for The Arthritis Society.

Here are some pictures from Kristin Reinhart (Taiyha's Mom) from the event and the walk that they did after the movie around the block as June 08th was Walk to Fight Arthritis.

Fighting Back


Relay for Life 13 1

The fight against Cancer continues this weekend



We all know someone who has been touched by cancer, and we wish there was more we could do to battle this awful disease.  This weekend many of our friends and neighbors will be putting that wish into action at the 13th annual Swift Current "Relay for Life". 

Arlene McKenzie is a cancer survivor and the events ceremonial chairperson.  "We raised between $80,000 to $86,000 (last year) somewhere in that ball park and I think that's kind of the goal that we shoot for."  21 teams will be part of the event which starts tonight and runs into Sunday morning at Riverside Park.  The evening starts with a BBQ and opening ceremony at 5:00 and events continue all thru the night.  One of the most moving parts of the relay is the "Luminary Ceremony" at 10:30 where we remember those who have lost the fight against cancer.  Magic 97 will be at the relay with the Summer Events Cruiser so make sure to stop by and say hello.

The Relay for Life is just one of many events happening in Swift Current and the southwest this weekend.  There is also a special night at Speedy Creek Racing on Saturday celebrating Dad's and Kid's where you'll get a chance to get on the track and see the cars and drivers. 

Where ever you go this weekend, take Magic 97 along.  Stay safe and have fun!!
