The festival was held in the Legion Hall with 80 entries. The president was Ira Lawrence and the secretary was G. Alex Kevin. North Battleford hosted a Northern District Festival in the spring of 1925 in the Arena Skating Rink.

Our festival is one of the few that carries the distinction of conducting continued festivals for 80 years. The objective of our association is to encourage musical growth and development.The festival gives young people an opportunity to perform in public, compete with others their own age and benefit from the suggestions given by the adjudicators.

Special Interest & Recreation Battlefords Ukrainian Seniors Society Branch No. 184 The Battlefords Ukrainian Seniors Society Branch No. 184 was first organized October 1977. The purpose was to get Ukrainian Canadians together for recreation and socialization. Having no permanent home, the basements of the two Ukrainian churches were put to use, alternating every Wednesday for readings, cards, singing and general socializing. In January 1980, we acquired the former band hall, started dismantling on January 14, 1980 and in three days time had it moved to our present location at 792 - 108 Street. Through the generosity of our people and the great amount of volunteer labor by so many we now have a building that is paid for, which serves many purposes and we are very proud to show it off. We gather for suppers with others for certain celebrations such as Ukrainian New Year, Ukrainian Heritage Day and any other occasion that warrants such a supper. Films, slides and guest speakers also are hosted. Many workshops are held to keep up our heritage. The hall is also used by the Svoboda Dancers and The Ukrainian Cultural Society with whom we are closely associated, and the Ukrainian Studies Group. We do not receive any grants.

It is a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers. A viewing tower and platforms have been built to provide magnificent opportunities to see wildlife up close.

Special Interest & Recreation Crochet, Knit and Natter

Club DJ Trinity Baptist Church Club DJ is our church children’s club program designed for children from kindergarten to Grade 6. Our motto in Club DJ is “Hearts That Desire To Please God” and our aim is to encourage children to have hearts that desire to please the Lord. We truly believe that we would raise up a generation with such hearts that we would begin to see things happen in our nation that would have no explanation, except that God did it! Club DJ is based on the covenant relationship between two friends David and Jonathan. We read about them in the book of I Samuel. David was a shepherd boy, the youngest in a family of eight boys and Jonathan was a prince, son of King Saul. Everyone would have thought that Jonathan would be king but God had other plans. Instead, God chose David to be the next king of Israel. You might think that Jonathan would be jealous, but instead, Jonathan made a covenant with David and promised to do all he could to help David become all that God wanted him to be. What a friend! Jonathan gave up all he had for David’s sake, and the Bible says David became a man after God’s own heart and that the Lord was with him. We want the children to know they also have a friend who gave up all He had to see them become all God wants them to be. Jesus, the Son of God, left His home in Heaven to come to earth as a little baby. He died and rose again to make a way for each child to have a personal relationship with Him, so they can become all God wants them to be.What a Friend! Club DJ at Trinity Baptist Church runs from September to April. Please call the church at 306-445-4818 for details as to cost, time and night. Each club night consists of Bible stories, scripture memory program. Bible quizzing, take home Bible lessons, great crafts, fun games, and an exciting achievement awards program which includes the Club DJ Catalogue. We invite you to join us in reaching children for Christ. Our desire is to see whole families grow in Christ and live their lives for God’s honor and glory. More information can be found at www.trinitybaptistchurch.ca. Follow us on Twitter.

Ducks Unlimited Canada www.ducks.ca

Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is a private, non-profit, charitable organization that conserves, restores and manages wetlands and associated habitats. Since 1938, DUC has been restoring drained wetlands, improving those that have been degraded, and protecting others from being lost across Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan is part of the pothole region that spans Canada’s southern prairies and is known throughout North America as a unique jurisdiction for waterfowl. The many small wetlands that dot this landscape make it especially attractive to the waterfowl that migrate to Saskatchewan each spring to breed and rear their young. Saskatchewan citizens have long valued the ecologically rich landscapes that make up their province and have played a key role in managing habitat for migratory bird species such as waterfowl. DUC’s work with the people of Saskatchewan has been essential in achieving waterfowl habitat goals and preserving those landscapes. Waterfowl aren’t the only beneficiaries of DUC wetland and habitat conservation efforts – people benefit too.Wetlands are nature’s water filters. Beyond improving habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife, wetlands replenish groundwater sources, purify surface water and offer flood protection and erosion control. All of which contribute to a safe water supply. Although wetlands are considered nature’s nursery, the stark reality is that much of this habitat has been lost and the remainder continues to be degraded. Up to 70 per cent of Canada’s original wetlands have vanished in settled parts of the country, and more disappear every day. Our conservation work is not done. To learn more about how you can support DUC and wetland conservation, please visit www.ducks.ca.

Habitat Saskatoon serves as our mentor and provides full administrative support including sending out tax receipts. This allows the local committee and volunteers to focus on the home build itself. Homes are built using volunteer labour and donated materials. Working families who are selected to receive a home must contribute 500 hours of “sweat equity” and enter into an affordable and sustainable, no-interest mortgage, held by Habitat Saskatoon. Our first build was a duplex for two single parent families. It took two years to complete from the groundbreaking in 2015 to the families moving in during the summer of 2017. We have been gifted a lot in Riverview for another build but before this can begin funds must be raised. We have dwindled to a committee of three and without more community members stepping forward to serve on the committee this build won’t happen.

Saskatchewan Health Authority – BATTLEFORDS & AREA The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) launched on December 4, 2017, transitioning 12 former regional health authorities including the former Prairie North Health Region to a single provincial health authority. The SHA is the largest organization in Saskatchewan, employing over 44,000 employees and physicians responsible for the delivery of high quality and timely health care for the entire province. We are driven by the commitment to improve front line patient care for Saskatchewan people, and we are working together to better coordinate health services across the province to ensure that patients receive high quality, timely health care, wherever they live in Saskatchewan.

Establishing one provincial approach to plan and deliver health-care services will break down geographic boundaries and service silos, to provide more consistent and coordinated health-care services across the province. The work to unify the health system under a single organization and coordinate system-wide transformation, for the benefit of people working in the system and those that use it, is a multi-year journey in collaboration with patients, health-care providers and partners across the health system. ACUTE CARE Battlefords Union Hospital Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) is an 88-bed facility (including the 22-bed acute mental health inpatient unit) that delivers a broad range of regional acute care services including: 24-hour emergency service; intensive care; medical (adult & pediatric), surgical, and obstetrical/ gynecological care; women’s health and birthing services; laboratory, diagnostic imaging (x-ray, ultrasound, mammography, and CT ), pharmacy, and dietary services; palliative care; renal dialysis service; inpatient acute psychiatric care; physiotherapy, occupational therapy and respiratory therapy services; cardiac stress testing; specialist outpatient clinics; discharge planning services; chemotherapy outreach program and First Nation liaison services.
