Written by Jessica Vallee on Monday, 14 July 2014
Lac Pelletier Regional Park are celebrating their 50th anniversary on Saturday with a full day of activities.
“There’s going to be a parade at 10 o’clock, the Métis are going to have a demonstration, the jiggers and fiddlers will be there and we’re also going to have the Saskatchewan Express junior team will show us how talented they are,” said Park Manager John Froese. “We have a number of dignitaries that are going to speak, and it’s always nice to see that we can get the government involved and give us their good wishes.”
Froese adds there will be a buffet supper at 5:00pm, a dance featuring Bakersfield starting at 9:00pm, and the draw for their fundraising raffle, which features a getaway to anywhere WestJet flies, goes at 10:00pm.
“The money all goes within the park to different structures, playground structures, washrooms, handicap operator doors are going into the hall things like that,” Froese added. “There’s a beautiful playground structure going in, a beautiful new swimming dock. All the dollars made in the park stay in the park, and they get used in the park.”
Tickets can be purchased at the park office and clubhouse up until the time of the draw and you do not have to be present to win.
