South West Spotlight
Bengough Working Together

Bengough has accomplished what many
communities strive to do – they work together!
On a recent visit in Bengough, the SWDCRS
Community Consultants asked what was
happening in town. In the hour that followed,
many projects were described, and one standout
was that most of the events and activities
involved at least two groups working together,
if not more.

Mossbank Golf Club’s Link to the No. 2 Bombing and Gunnery School

Mossbank is a community that knows the value of heritage, and the importance of moving forward.

The No.2 Bombing and Gunnery School was opened in 1940, approximately 6 kilometers east of Mossbank. From 1940 until it closed in 1944, the base housed and trained thousands of people for the war effort, many of whom visited Mossbank during off-duty hours for entertainment.

They meet Monday to Friday mornings for coffee at the library because there is no other coffee shop in town.

South West Spotlight on the Carmichael Museum
Carmichael, SK
Highway 37 S

It all started with the Grassy Hills School building, and some people who recognized the historical value of a building that was still in pretty good shape but needed to be somewhere where it could be taken care of properly and be accessible for use. Years ago, the school was the center of a community, often used as the church and community hall as well. So, the Carmichael Community Club decided that Carmichael needed a museum, and the Grassy Hills School would be a great start.
