This Weeks Eagle Applause Is For All the Firemen, Power Workers, and Volunteers


When wind storms and wild fires hit southwest Saskatchewan earlier this week, Swift Current Fire Chief Denis Pilon and his department, along with fire departments, power lineman, and volunteers from across the region and province sprang into action and worked tirelessly through the night responding to power outages, downed trees, property damage...and or course battling the devastating wild fires that hit many parts of southwest Saskatchewan...and for that they all get this weeks eagle applause for Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse.

Denis says he accepts it on behalf of all fire departments who were working and monitoring the situation, and power lineman as well who worked non stop across Saskatchewan to get power restored and keep people and communities safe. 

Denis says everyone is also sending their thoughts and best wishes to the family of the volunteer firefighter from Walsh, Alberta who was killed battling the blaze near Burstall, as well as the family of the father and son from Tompkins who were injured fighting the fire and are in hospital. 

For all you do to keep our communities and citizens safe...this weeks eagle applause is for you. 

Mike Mutlow is this week's Eagle Applause Recipient!

Congratulations to Mike Mutlow, this week's Eagle Applause recipient for Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse!

Mike Mutlow is a very familiar sight in Swift Current, particularly at Mitchel Field where he is part of the driving force behind the success of our Swift Current 57's!

He's been on the Board for the 57's (previously the Indians) since 2010 and served as president for the past year.

The Board meets year-round and Mike, and the entire board put in countless volunteer hours at games during the season, in addition to the fund-raising events for the club during the entire year.

This dedication, hard work, and support to the coaches, trainers, players, and everyone associated with the 57's is a significant part of what has allowed the team to break attendance records and win back-to-back championships!

The 57s are also going to be honored at tonight's (Friday 13th) Bronco game, with a special pre-game ceremony recognizing their championship season this year.

Congratulations Mike Mutlow...this week's Eagle Applause for Schultz's Ranch Country Meats in Morse!!

Broncos Will Pay Tribute To Denis Loeppky Saturday

Dennis L

For many years Denis Loeppky was a fixture at Swift Current Bronco games. The long time score & time keeper could always be seen at the then Civic Centre and more recently Credit Union I-plex on game days visiting with fans and prepping for that days game.

In fact, Denis spent over 50 years volunteering and helping out with minor sports and Bronco games. Sadly, he passed away earlier this year. The Broncos are going to honor Denis at this Saturday's home opener with a special pre-game ceremony that will see him inducted into the hall of fame, the first volunteer to be inducted into the hall of fame.

A large contingent of Denis' family will be in attendance and fans are asked to be in their seats early Saturday night.  It's a well deserved honor for a really great guy....Denis Loeppky.

Good Job Jim, This Weeks' Eagle Applause


Jim Magee has always made youth in the community a top priority. He's worked with them as a counsellor, coach, and as Executive Director of The Centre in Swift Current and made their development, well being, happiness, and future a top priority.

Jim says when he looks back on his own life he sees the impact that teachers and coaches had on it and how they helped him, and it was one of the reasons why he wanted to get into teaching and working with kids and it's been very fulfilling. 

Jim retired from the Executive Director position at The Centre in February but continues in a counselling role and with fundraising efforts for them.

For all he`s done and continues to do for youth in our community, Jim Magee gets`this weeks` eagle applause for Schultz`s Ranch Country Meats in Morse. Thank you Jim!! is Westman's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
