Sneak Peek at the Agenda!

Headliner – Kristin Enns-Kavanagh comes to us from the Saskatchewan History & Folklore Society, to talk about What Makes Your Community Unique and Special?  This workshop is designed to help people and communities connect with the wealth of stories, expressions, traditions, and practices that help define who we are. A great way to catalyze interest in reflecting on your unique local heritage, and build momentum to create new culture, recreation, and sport opportunities.

Eat Healthy, Play Healthy initiative – Tim Hanna from the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association will join us for a discussion on what your community is doing to increase healthy eating choices in recreation facilities. Tim will bring the latest resources, posters, and a step-by-step guide that have been developed to assist communities to move forward.

Communities in Bloom and Recreation – The Saskatchewan guru of Communities in Bloom, Andrew Exelby. Andrew is the Communities in Bloom Saskatchewan guru, working with the Saskatchewan Parks & Recreation Association. Andrew will lead us through a discussion about how the Communities in Bloom program can help develop your recreation and parks program. With practical, community based examples you’ll learn how to make your community a more interesting, engaging place to live. We will also talk about funding that is available for CiB related initiatives.
