Right off the hop, HAPPY ST. DAVID’S DAY!
A big bowl of leek soup and a bunch of daffodils delivered to you would be nice! Tonight I’m off to the annual St David’s Welsh Society of Regina banquet. Great food, music and some story telling.
My dad’s parents came to Canada from Wales. While I didn’t know them, I believe it’s up to our generation to carry on the Welsh name, the traditions and keep in touch with those residing in Wales.
Thomas and Jane Evans came to Canada to break into the Western frontier along with other Welshmen, the Jones brothers. Findlater and Dilke, Saskatchewan are still home to the families.
The first of March and the spring seems to be unfolding before us. The Oscars are wrapped up and now we prep for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.
Do you have bench-marks like that. You know exactly where you are in a year by various events. Remember, Easter is early this year.
I’ve got an aunt that celebrates her 98th birthday in about 10 days! Aunt Lavina is still going strong in Oregon and it would be great to go and see her this summer. But the rate that events are unfolding this year will roll by as fast as 2015 did!
Various social media are alive with news of the Gateway Festival that takes place in Bengough the end of July. The Saskatchewan Roughriders have their season set out and now its time to pick out Flex-Pack and soon, single tickets. The Moose Mountain Pro Rodeo is also set for July 23 weekend. That is always a lot of fun.
Government: federal and local, are looking for people to fill positions for the provincial election, summer job placements, as well as the census.
One other thing, The NIGHT WITH STARS Gala is coming April 8th at the Delta Regina. Tickets are available $150. Corporate tables are $1,600.
The entertainment feature performance is by Saskatchewan’s award winning Jess Moskaluke. Keynote speaker: Kurt Ferguson.
Help raise money to keep a valued asset in the skies over Saskatchewan. Whether you are familiar with STARS or not, this is a fantastic evening. Its nice to know when you need a lift, STARS is available.
