Everyone's favourite prairie festival continues this year with terrific music, delicious locally-sourced food, inspiring educational workshops, Fair Trade Fair and Farmer's Market, and mini Kid's Festival too! Grab your tickets and join the party!

The Harvest Moon Festival celebrates the harvest season and local food production, while providing an opportunity to link those from rural and urban communities.

JUNE 2 2018
Chris Silman Golf Tournament 

I am so excited to attend this event in honour of a wonderful young man who was so tragically lost. Here is a blurb from the website:

"As an annual tradition, Chris would always take it upon himself to arrange a 'Golf Tournament' in honour of his birthday.

  Typically held on (or close to) his birthday of June 11th, Chris would get a handful of his buddies out for a day of golf, beers, cigars and laughs followed by an evening of partying and general celebration of his day of birth. 

The 4th Annual Chris Silman Memorial Golf Tournament will be held this year on Saturday June 2nd, 2018 at Southside Golf Course. 

The cost per golfer will be $125. This includes green fee, power cart, BBQ dinner/after party, a chance to win a prize or two, hopefully some sun, definitely some fun and of course a donation to Canadian Diabetes! 
We will have on course contests with PRIZES for Longest Drive, Closest to the 'crooked line", Closest to the Hole, Best/Worst Score and Best Dressed!"
