Marking A Milestone

SCAAC LOGO 50th FINAL

In 1967 a group was formed that would today become what is known as the Swift Current Allied Arts Council. That's 50 years ago and that's 50 years of bringing incredible music and entertainment to Swift Current. To mark this momentous milestone the AAC is holding a 50th anniversary gala at the Sky Centre this Saturday, May 27.  The evening will include cocktails, a plated dinner, dancing, a preview of the 2017 Stars For Saskatchewan line up, and much more. Tickets are available at the Living Sky Casino box office or online at www.livingskycasino.ca

Congratulations to the Swift Current Allied Arts Council as you celebrate your 50th anniversary in 2017. 

 

Steve Likes To Keep Our City Sightly

SF EA

Maybe you've seen him as you've driven around Swift Current. A man, often with his dogs, out cleaning along the roads, highways, and bi-ways in the city. Picking up garbage and debris. Doing his part to clean up our city. That man is Steve Fitzpatrick and for that he gets this weeks' Eagle Applause for Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse. 

Steve says he does it because he loves Swift Current and it's his way of helping keep our community looking good. Thank you Steve and keep up the good work!!

A Lasting Legacy For Lac Pelletier

JF EA

Lac Pelletier is a special place for John Froese. He was raised in the area, and he and his family spent much time camping there over the years. John then became a cabin owner at the park and also served on the cabin owners association for many years. For all that Lac Pelletier has meant to John and his family he wanted to give something back. John recently built a red river cart, using his own time and resources, that he's going to donate back to the park to be put on display as a lasting legacy to the place that has meant so much to him.

For that, John Froese gets' this weeks' eagle applause for Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse. What a great project and donation John!!
