Summer Car Shows bring out the best in vintage

Ever since Henry Ford built his first Model A, North Americans have had a love affair with the automobile. Every year auto lovers take part in a whole pile of “auto love-ins” better known as car show and shines. Owners proudly display their collected and restored vehicles. People love to see the old styles and designs or recall their first cars whether they are from Henry Ford era or the muscle cars of the 1960s. Moose Jaw has grown over the years with a number of car shows. One of newest and largest is the Highway to Heroes Car Show and Concert at the 15 Wing military base. This year’s show is expected to draw up to 500 vehicles from across the province and from across the spectrum of models and years.

Held on the base tarmac on July 15, this year’s show includes static aircraft displays from the RCAF and two special attractions. The renowned Snowbirds aerial demonstration team will perform a show in the afternoon and Canada’s crack military parachute team, the Sky Hawks, will do precision landings. The Uncoolas perform music from many eras. The show includes concessions, children’a area and displays.

River Street:

The Original Moose Jaw Heartbeat Along the Moose Jaw River, where the lines of the Canadian Pacific and the Canadian National collide, only a few beats north lies our city’s original business hub. What the name lacks in mystery, River Street guarantees to make up for with it’s colourful history. From it’s inception in the 1880’s, through prohibition, one World War and a great fire, rumours abound about Al Capone, bootleggers, gambling and opium, playboys and prostitutes. River Street has been the heart of Moose Jaw through to the roaring twenties and for nearly a century since. Many notable businesses had their origins on River Street at the turn of the 19th century. In 1909, businesses such as Woolworth’s department store, the Princess Café Ice Cream Parlour, Savoy Steak House, the Brunswick Hotel and four other Moose Jaw hotels (out of Moose Jaw’s seven hotels) were all situated on River Street. There were also four

restaurants, a blacksmith, a bath house, and half of the city’s billiard halls there as well. A decade later, men travelled from Regina on the train for one dollar return fare just to visit what became known as the “red-light district.” The red lights were the brothel’s way of letting passersby know when there were ‘companions’ available inside, similar to a hotel “vacancy” sign. By the time prohibition ended in the 1920’s, eight out of nine of Moose Jaw’s billiard halls were situated on River Street, the hotel population had expanded from five to seven River Street hotels, there were 11/19 local River Street barbers, and a laundry. To learn more about our city’s history and the red-light district in particular, you can find lots of intriguing information at or visit the Tunnels of Moose Jaw.

Legendary gangster carries Moose Jaw connections

Did legendary mobster and bootlegger Al Capone have a presence in Moose Jaw in the 1920s? Maybe he did…maybe he didn’t? But the story is cool. Wikimedia Commons photo

The question is always there – did he or didn’t he? What there is no question about is the wide variety of tunnels and excavations under the streets and businesses of Moose Jaw, going well beyond traditional basements and storage spaces. They were used by immigrants to travel between areas of the downtown core – some say illicitly, some say to avoid the cold. They weren’t high tech constructions but they got the job done in the early 1900s. And that’s where Mr. Alphonse Capone comes into the equation. It’s long been rumoured that Capone – the legendary mobster, crime boss and businessman known mostly as one of the most powerful bootleggers of the Prohibition era – set up stakes in Moose Jaw at the height of his powers. Whether to let the heat cool off when the feds got too close for comfort, or simply as another avenue with which to funnel liquor into the Dry States,

23 2018 Moose Jaw

Research done by family members casts little doubt – his greatneice Deidre Capone said in a Metro Regina article back in 2013 they were certain he was active up in this part of the world in the 1920s via rail-line connections between Chicago and North Dakota, with only a short trip to Moose Jaw from there. The extent of his business in the city is completely unknown – Capone was famous for his secrecy and ability to cover his trail, to the point that, famously, prosecutors were only able to take him down by way of tax evasion charges. That hasn’t stopped Moose Jaw from romanticizing Capone’s fame and notoriety. Hotels and bars are named after him and the famous Tunnels of Moose Jaw tour gives patrons a rundown of what it might have been like in Capone’s heyday in the city. It matters little…The idea is enough, and there’s no question it makes for one heck of a cool story.

“talkie” shown in Moose Jaw was “Close Harmony,” starring Buddy Rogers and Nancy Carroll. In 1935 the main floor was renovated. A new type of luxurious seat, the English self-tilting seat, was installed, finished in velour. The Capitol was the first theatre in Canada to feature this type of seat. For many years, the Capitol Theatre showcased both films and travelling acts from the vaudeville circuit. At one point, the theatre had its own in-house band, the Capitolians. In 1983, the Cap was converted into a three-screen multiplex theatre. It remained this way until its closure in 2001. A group known as Arts in Motion (AIM) began the process of creating a cultural centre for the city of Moose Jaw. AIM purchased the Capitol Theatre and the former Army & Navy Department Store. Larry Wilson helped purchase the building by contributing $350,000 towards the project. Wilson was a lifetime performer and a lover of the arts. He had a strong connection to the theatre, as he and his siblings used to perform at the old Capitol Theatre. He specified that the theatre be named after his mother, Mae Wilson. Renovations began in 2003 and the theatre had its grand opening on June 19/20, 2004. The beautifully restored theatre maintains the original features that made it Moose Jaw’s finest theatre. Since then, the Mae Wilson has hosted many great acts, both international and local, and continues to be the home of Moose Jaw’s own RuBarb Productions.

Downtown Moose Jaw’s Hidden Treasures: Looking through stained glass In the early years of Moose Jaw, religious communities here sought to construct churches with architecture and ornamentation that would draw people in and prepare and uplift their spirits for worship. One of the elements they used was stained glass and by doing so they left succeeding generations with a generous collection of stained glass artwork. All the churches and stained glass windows are located within Moose Jaw’s downtown core. As well, Moose Jaw Public Library holds wonderful stained glass in it’s architectural features. Central Lutheran Church Located at 27 Hochelaga St. W., Central Lutheran is the smallest and newest of the four churches constructed in 1929 and designed by architect J.B. Stephenson. The white stucco sided church is of a Gothic style with its typical pointed windows that are often narrow and elongated, as well as a few other features like buttresses and a crenellated bell tower. The church holds four stained glass windows all of which appear to date to its original construction. The most impressive of these is the Crucifix window on the north end of the church. Central Lutheran also houses three other notable stained-glass windows that date from the construction of the church. Two of these windows are identical and symmetrically placed opposite of each other in the east and west walls of the sanc- A detailed view of the stained glass window tuary. They are in the Arts and Crafts movement style that owes its depicting the Nativity, on the north wall of origins to British writer and art proponent John Ruskin. the Nave, St. Aidan Anglican Church, High St. Andrew’s United Church Located at 60 Athabasca Street East across from Crescent Park and the Public Library, St. Andrew’s is the phoenix of the four churches. In 1912 the present Greystone Church was constructed but gutted due to a tragic fire that happened on December 15th 1963. The reconstruction of the building was carried out and the stained-glass windows at St. Andrew’s were designed, created and installed by the Robert McCausland company of Toronto. The former bank building at the foot of Toronto’s Yonge Street which houses the Hockey Hall of Fame is one of their finest and oldest works in the stained glass dome which adorns the facility. St. Andrew’s church has the largest collection of windows of the Moose Jaw churches and there are basically too many to describe them individually.

St. E. Moose Jaw.

Zion United Church Zion United Church was founded by the Methodists and constructed in 1906, and is now located on the 500 block of Main St. The building at this location was built for a princely sum of $65,000 for this church plus another $6,000 for the acoustically famous Casavant organ which graces the chancel or area behind the altar of the church. The decoration of the building extended to its windows. Crafted for the church during its initial construction by the Winnipeg Paint and Glass Company a second set had to be manufactured when that firm’s building burned to the ground taking all merchandise in stock in October of 1907. Founded by Scottish born architect, art collector and contractor James McDiarmid Winnipeg Paint and Glass was a prominent supplier of such goods in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Save for some memorial windows found in the chapel on the social hall level and the landings in the Narthex area of the church, all share the Arts and Crafts movement style that was popular at the turn of the century.

worship. Designed by architects William Reilly (18571936) and F. Clapman Clemenshaw this brick and stoneclad building was designed in the Gothic revival style and is reminiscent of many rural English churches. It has the pointed gothic windows, buttresses, a crenellated tower and high ceilings. St. Aidan Anglican Church is also home to an impressive single octave set of bells which peel when played with a set of levers as opposed to pulleys. The church, unlike any of the other churches more closely follows the classic Christian church plan laid out for Roman Basilicas. The church boasts a host of beautiful stained-glass windows.

The main entrance contains a superbly designed rotunda with carved marble brackets, columns and a mosaic tile floor and all of this is topped by a stained-glass dome in an elegant floral pattern in the Arts and Crafts style. Downstairs in the adjacent museum sits another piece of stained glass taken from a typical Arts and Crafts style house constructed in the city during the early boom of the last century. It is a picture of St. Cecelia, the patron saint of music and is worth looking at as well. The windows are not only beautiful examples of craftsmanship but are rich in symbolism and speak a language of their own. They also bear witness to the people who erected them and to the importance they placed on worship.

There aren’t many city parks in Saskatchewan where a person can go for a walk or to have a barbecue with the chance to see a gathering of deer or a fox or two, or maybe even an owl, if you’re out at dusk.

Crescent Park

A true sight to see and the place to be

There is little question that the nickname ‘Jewel of the Prairies’ truly fits Moose Jaw’s Crescent Park. Located a block east of Main Street in downtown Moose Jaw, the park has become one of the most popular destinations in the city, offering a wide and sometimes surprising variety of things to see and do when it comes to rest, play and enjoying arts and culture. Located at the Langdon Street entrance, eye-catching tree sculptures are visible. Created by artists Doug Lindelbach and Kevin Bendig in 2017, the first tree focuses on the rich history of the railway with a symbolic railroad worker, western red lilies and wheat bundles intertwined around the tree, as well as a carving of a great old steam engine train carved into a functional bench. The other stump features a Burrowing Owl, an endangered species. Along the tree, other features commemorate the Canada 150 theme which includes the Canadian Maple Leaf and the Saskatchewan map carved into the backside of the tree with other flora and fauna emblems decorating it. In addition to close to 28 acres of green space, the park features plenty of walking paths, benches and rest areas for those looking to take in a bit of nature and even see a wild critter or two – the park has been known to have deer wandering the grounds regularly and a wide variety of waterfowl inhabit

Come to Moose Jaw and celebrate Christmas in October

Yvette Moore in her gallery. Every year about the last week of October, Moose Jaw heralds in the Christmas season with almost a week of festivities and shopping. The City of Moose Jaw gets into the spirit of things and trims the lights downtown so everything sparkles Christmas. The downtown core of shops and boutiques makes sure they are adorned for the season, as well as offering exceptional shopping deals for those that want to get a jump on Christmas shopping. People come from all over the province to get an early taste of the most beloved

season of the year, not to mention the great shopping that Moose Jaw offers to those that come to experience Christmas in October. Yvette Moore, creator of this magical event, makes sure her gallery (Yvette Moore Gallery) is dressed for the occasion in all its Christmas finery. She is a renowned artist and has captivated the heart and spirit of prairie life in her detailed and precise paintings that are on display and for sale, as well as other handcrafted items designed and produced by local artists/artisans. During Christmas in October each year, the gallery celebrates the spirit of Christmas in festive style, as well as hosting an “All the Trimmings Christmas Dinner” that is an especially sought-out and sold-out affair. Yvette’s heritage home housed the first Christmas in October in 1990 with every room decorated with her artwork, Christmas crafts of local artisans and complete with daughters dressed as elves.

48 2018 Moose Jaw

As the event grew in popularity, so did the need to house the occasion in a larger venue and in 1999, Yvette’s dream of owning her own art gallery would be realized with the purchase of the Land Titles Building on Fairford Street, now Yvette Moore Gallery. Her ingenuity launched an idea that has since become a widespread and anticipated affair that has spread throughout Moose Jaw and continues to welcome the community and beyond to embrace Christmas in October.

Ship on the Prairie — and much more — at Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village

The story of the Finnish homesteader and the ship he built on the Saskatchewan Prairies is both intriguing and inspiring. The ship Tom Sukanen built almost 80 years ago to sail down the Saskatchewan/Churchill River system to this home in Finland sits peacefully at the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum – a tribute to the man’s vision, physical strength and character. The restored vessel and the tools Sukanen made by hand to construct the hull are on display.

The Sukanen Ship story and mystery is just one part of the 40-acre grounds and Prairie village. Started as an automobile club, the museum enters its 49th year in 2018 as one of Moose Jaw’s frequently visited attractions. Attendance has doubled in three years. Once the auto club was established, requests came to preserve buildings from the district: a school and a church. The village grew from that small start into numerous streets with over 75 buildings that a pioneer village would have. Stroll down Main Street, see the church, school, general store, newspaper office and the recently completed replica of an old drug store. Railway heritage buffs can re-live the past with a walk through the station and the adjacent caboose. Walking east on the street leads visitors past the carriage house, three settlers’ shacks to the fire hall and extensive fire engine collection. Turn west, walk past a cottage and blacksmith shop down the streets by gasoline alley and see over 200 vintage cars, trucks and tractors. The Bill Young collection of Allis Chalmers/Case tractors is one of the largest on the Prairies. Off to the north two cedar clad shacks are from the homestead where Prime Minister John Diefenbaker grew up. A 1913 wooden crib grain elevator in the meadow to the north is the largest restored elevator in the province. The museum is located 13 km south of Moose Jaw on Highway Two.

Reviews show visitors really enjoy Sukanen Ship Museum One of the best ways to fi nd out what people think of a place is to read how visitors felt about it. The reviews of Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum online at range from glowing to okay with only one terrible review. The one terrible rating came from a visitor who arrived when the museum was closed and met a volunteer on site. The volunteer told him he had to come back next season. Most of the reviews are like the following samples: “Excellent area to walk and go back in time. So many machines and equipment. Th e buildings were true to the times they portrayed.” “Great museum of very early Saskatchewan. It is surprising what people invented in order to eke out a life.” “This museum was started by a bunch of people that wanted to preserve history and have succeeded. Many old buildings have been moved in and re-stored. Oodles of artifacts from days gone by.” “Was a great day out to go and see some of the demonstrations, a focus on grain farming, great to see the old way of doing farming. Food was good and not too pricy. Th e museum itself is very good, big focus on being authentic and showing you what it was like. Worth it even when it is not a special event.’ “I have been going to the Sukanen Ship Museum a couple of times a year since I was a young child. It’s very clear that this museum has a very active group of volunteers and staff . Th e museum and grounds are also well kept. The museum is big (by Saskatchewan

standards anyway). The story behind Tom Sukanen and his ship is very unique. “The museum gets bigger and bigger every year. T e collection constantly grows and they have added several more buildings over the past few years including the childhood home of (Prime Minister) John Diefenbaker.” “I would recommend going the weekend of the threshing bee as they have a parade, tractor pull, threshing demonstration, blacksmith, and rope making.” “Bring your camera and explore the antique cars, farm machinery and various buildings inside and out. Th is place never disappoints and provides hours of enjoyment. “My family loves this place. My boys (two and five) always love coming and running around and checking things out. Very open area and you can go inside all the buildings! Tom Sukanen’s ship is the least interesting thing in my opinion so don’t let the name fool you. Give yourself a few hours to wan-der around especially if you like vintage tractors! So much other cool stuff too.” Attendance at the volunteer operated musuem, located 13 km south of Moose Jaw on Highway Two, was up 30 per cent last year. Visitors need between 2.5 hours and three hours to view the place. The spring fling show and shine car show is set for June 4 and this year’s threshing bee will take place Sept. 9-10. The Halloween Haunted Museum event will be Oct. 21.

Get your ‘furry fix’ at the Free to be Me Animal Sanctuary

Animal lovers who want to get their ‘furry fix’ can do so at the Free to be Me Animal Sanctuary! Located just a couple short miles west on Caribou Street, this wildlife respite has grown to become Moose Jaw’s hub for critter-loving! If you want to visit the Free to be Me Animal Sanctuary, you will need to call ahead to book an appointment, which ensures that the animals’ schedules and feeding times take place without interruption. Calling ahead also ensures that the sanctuary staff have the opportunity to prepare for you, because visitors are given a guided tour of the Sanctuary, complete with lots of opportunities to feed, scratch or snuggle some of the Sanctuary’s residents. The tours feature introductions with several domestic and exotic varieties of fur and fowl including Hope the billy goat, cats, pigs, dogs, alpacas and llamas, cows and sheep, horses and mini-horses, ostriches and emus, a chicken coup, a pigeon coup, an angora

rabbit, pot bellied pig pens, larger swine – much larger than ordinary slaughter sows – along with the gargantuan mud puddle they’ve customized for themselves. Some of the fowl visitors might meet include Quackers, a duck who thinks it’s a human who is learning to be a duck, a blind guinea fowl, two Peacocks, a rafter of turkeys and poults, several quail, baby ducks, a couple of roosters, precious little silky chicks, and a few varieties of chicken and geese. When they aren’t entertaining tour guests, the Sanctuary residents have an option to retire to the south pasture, where Shropshire has provided miles upon miles of free-range pasture in which the animals can roam. The tour is well worth the three-and-a-half-kilometre drive west on Caribou Street! If you would like more information about the Free to be Me Animal Sanctuary, and to book an appointment, give Louanne a call at 306.684.2231.

Moose Jaw Municipal Airport Expansion Will Open Up Opportunities for City

Moose Jaw has opened its doors to increased economic activities for local businesses and investors that are set to benefit the city over the long term. Moose Jaw City Council approved the establishment of an Airport Authority and the expansion of the Moose Jaw Municipal Airport. This will see many long-term benefits for the city as it will attract more opportunities and open the gateway to commercial air travel to Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw Mayor Fraser Tolmie agreed with this vision and voted in favour of expanding the runway at the Municipal Airport with the establishment of the Airport Authority. He noted that Moose Jaw, having a population of over 30,000, would benefit greatly with an expanded runway and the Airport Authority Model, moving forward in achieving a growing economy. The Authority will work to obtain matching funds already committed from private investors, the RM of MJ and the City of MJ. When funding is in place, the project will be tendered. Moose Jaw is happy to report that the expansion is shoveled already. This is an important move for our city for many reasons: · Economic Development—to attract businesses to invest in Moose Jaw and the Industrial Corridor

· More Hanger Development and an increase in maintenance shops · In support of aerial application businesses provided by Provincial Airways for crop protection from diseases and insects · To Expand the Job Market – highly-educated and highly-skilled jobs are needed in Moose Jaw—this initiative will create well-paying jobs · Medivac – the short runway has been a safety issue for Medivac. This move will ensure safe and efficient operations. Extension of the runway will allow for multi-engine aircrafts, corporate/ business aircrafts, aerospace industry and RCAF assets to safely operate at the MJMA, as well as pilot training.

T-Rex Discovery Centre just one part of Eastend attractions

Just like Scotty, the massive TRex dinosaur found in a coulee near Eastend, the T-Rex Discovery Centre sticks out of a hillside overlooking the pretty town on the far southwestern edge of Saskatchewan. Visitors see themselves and the town in the centre’s wall mirrors. The mighty T-Rex skeleton displayed inside the centre is part of the collection of these giant animals that roamed the countryside millions of years ago. Visitors can watch a palaeontolo-gist at work in the lab slowly

and carefully separating the fossil bones from the mud rocks that en-cased them for millions of years. Eastend was a sleepy little cow-town until an accidental discovery of Scotty’s bones in 1991. Learn how Scotty was named, see the difficulties getting his bones out of the coulee and learn how the dinosaurs survived in these lands. After the guided or self-guided tour, discover what it’s like to make a plaster cast protecting fossils from the air, or make a dinosaur tooth. School tours enjoy

field days here. The Centre opens May 19 and runs daily to Labour Day. Book by calling 306-295-4009, or email For readers, be sure and see the 1917 Wallace Stegner home on the banks of the Frenchman River where the Pulitzer prize-winning author grew up. The house is used by artists in residence. While in Eastend don’t forget to visit the local museum located in an old theatre building. Go downtown to eat at Jack’s Cafe and see the murals depicting stages of Eastend history from early times to today. Before heading home drive east a few minutes to Ravenscrag and up the trail to Jones Peak for a spectacular view of the coulees.

Twin-Lakes Ranch Ministries just minutes out of town

Twin Lakes Ranch Ministries is a faith-based, nonprofit organization located just minutes from Moose Jaw, SK on the #1 Highway of Heroes. Founded by Ron and Lorna Silvester, their life-long desire has been to “give (people) a future and a hope.” This began over 50 years ago as both Ron and Lorna had a desire to minister to youth and have expanded into all age and people groups. Twin Lakes Ranch is an Apostolic Resource Center that exists to train and equip individuals to fully live out their destiny. TLRM offers Christian Rodeo Bible Camps, Clinics and a fully-functioning outdoor arena in which they use as a platform to present Jesus. There are countless opportunities to be taught the Word of Faith in conferences, meetings and our regular “Word of Faith Night” every Tuesday evening. Home educated children are offered a weekly opportunity called “Discipleship Training School” which incorporates team building, instruction in the Word of God and building friendships. The Ranch is a place where the

rural and urban can connect, bringing generations and nationalities together with strong family values. It is a place of healing and restoration. What began as an individual idea of trail rides many years ago is blossoming into a full-fledged program offering many facets of sport instruction, conference-type gatherings, educational opportunities and recreational events. There are many events planned for 2018. “Ladies Day Out” on May 12th is designed for ladies to be immersed in God’s Word, challenge their faith, feast on food for the body and soul and cultivate old and new friendships. On June 16th, will be the Annual 10 & Under Kids Rodeo that features 25 children roping and riding in a non-competitive environment. Kylie Oaks Gatewood, of Bentonville, Arkansas is speaking at the Ranch July 25 & 26th. Rodeo Teen Camp, ages 12-19, takes place July 30Aug 2nd. The campers bring their horses and learn rodeo skills throughout the week. Buckaroo Camp, for ages 9-12, will follow on August 6 – 8th. Ron and Lorna, along with their family and board of directors, believe that Twin Lakes Ranch Ministries is a place where God meets with His people. It is open to the public and exists to help individuals grow into and walk out their destiny. The events at the Ranch are in a state of constant change so it is best to frequently check or “Twin Lakes Ranch Ministries” on Facebook for updates.

Avonlea badlands: hidden Gem 30 minutes from Moose Jaw

The community of Avonlea was still in sight when the tour caught a glimpse of the Avonlea badlands. A few boulders strewn on a barren patch of dirt preceded the outline of badlands scarred by erosion over millions of years. The large boulders, called erratics, are between 70 million and 200 million years old, originally from the rocky far north, dropped by receding glaciers. The Avonlea badlands are small but have everything that better known badlands brag about — hoodos and cathedral style formations. No fossils have ever been found here. The tour crosses white clay bottom land with bits of vegetation here and there. A guide points out two cone-shaped mounds called the Sisters. The visitors climb to a hoodoo with a hole in it; it looks like an eerie eye. Walking below below the rim the tour passes castle style eroded pillars and what seems like giant organ pipes carved out of the wall by eons of erosion.

We see the deep imprint of a cow that walked on the wet clay. When the clay is wet there are no tours. The surface is too greasy. As we come out of the badlands down the gentle half mile slope to the cars, a visitor to other badlands comments: “These badlands are just as nice as Drumheller. They have just as many hoodoos.” The Avonlea Museum offers scheduled tours of the badlands between June and August.

They have just as many hoodoos.” The Avonlea Museum offers scheduled tours of the badlands between June and August. To book tours call 306-868-2101 or email

A Vacation for Your

East Indian food can be as mild or as spicy as desired. One of the best things about traveling to other countries is trying the local cuisine and discovering new taste combinations, new textures and sometimes, new plants and proteins. Moose Jaw, however, has an international sampling of many cuisines right here in the Friendly City. You can let your taste buds travel across continents with the wide variety of authentic restaurants available here. There are numerous Chinese restaurants all over the city; I highly recommend Jade Gardens Restaurant downtown. If you enjoy Japanese food, Mitsu Café downtown offers authentic Japanese cuisine and sushi made right before your eyes. Nits Thai Food Restaurant offers great Thai specialties. Right downtown on Main Street there are two restaurants that offer authentic Mexican and Indian cuisine, the Chachalacas Mexican Cuisine restaurant and the Royal Spices Indian Cuisine restaurant. They have both garnered rave reviews from locals and visitors alike. You can find Jamaican food, Ukrainian food and Lebanese food, too. The Mad Greek on Main offers popular dishes from the Greece islands or you can visit Bobby Place right downtown


Lamb is a staple of Greek food. on High Street for very popular Englishstyle fish and chips. If you are a bit less adventurous and want to sink your teeth into a steak or a burger, there are lots of restaurants to choose from: Original Joe’s, the Great Canadian Brewhouse, Montanas, and many more. Moose Jaw has a number of pizza places, as well. If you enjoy chicken wings any style, visit Déjà vu Café that was once featured on the tv show You Gotta Eat Here. For fine-dining, the Grant Hall hotel will impress you with its glamourous ambience, as well as the menu that offers delectable choices. Temple Gardens Restaurant also offers fine-dining. Regardless of the restaurants you decide to dine at, your palate will be delighted with the adventure.

Many people are familiar with Mexican cuisine.

Déjà Vu Café

Owners Brandon & Tammy Richardson purchased the restaurant in late 2009 and the business outgrew its old digs a couple years ago to their now location at 23 High Street East, right in the heart of downtown. Déjà Vu Café in Moose Jaw celebrated national exposure when it was featured on national television in April of 2013 on the Food Network’s program, You Gotta Eat Here. John Catucci, the host of the show said that they chose Déjà Vu Café because their research department found Dèja Vu and they discovered that it had amazing chicken wings and strips. “We wanted to showcase the Café,” said Catucci. More recently, the café has been featured Prairie Dinner 2014, TSN during the Scotties Tournament of Hearts held in Moose Jaw spring 2015; noting that the premise of the show features “taste adventures in unexpected places.” and Taste of Saskatchewan 2017.

“We have the Tunnels here, we have the spa, and now we can say we have a restaurant that has been featured on national TV. That is good for us and Moose Jaw,” Brandon said. Hopefully, it will bring more people here.” Déjà Vu Café is popular for the number of chicken wing flavours, and for the milkshakes. The restaurant boasts wings and strips with just about any sauce you can imagine and over 70+ flavours of milkshakes. An indulgence of deep fried banana is an excellent way to top off a “winging-it” foodie experience. The café is also licensed. Over 100 flavours. Voted best chicken and milkshakes 3 years running. Locally owned and operated, not a franchise. Huge supporter of the Moose Jaw community. In 2014 it grew out of it’s old digs and bought the building across the street (Dutch Bakery).

The NLL season runs from midDecember to late April, with teams playing one or two games a week. Playoffs begin in early May. As can be expected, tickets can be hard to come by, but are available in prices ranging from $30.75 to$60.75. For more information on the team and how to buy tickets, check out

Lots of golf courses to play in Moose Jaw region

Golfers have three courses to play with-in the City of Moose Jaw, but that just scratches the surface for the district. At least six other interesting and chal-lenging courses are within easy driving distance of the city The century-old 5,662-yard Hillcrest Golf course on the northern edge features rolling hills, coulees and waterways along Spring Creek. Provincial tournaments are often played at the Hillcrest course. Further west along the Spring Creek valley, Lynbrook Golf Course offers players two water obstacles, trees and rough Prairie grass on its 5,806 -yard fairways. Developed in the early 1900s, Lynbrook hosts many tournaments and social functions. The privately-owned Deer Ridge execu-tive course winds along the Moose Jaw River Valley over the water and around the sprawling river flats. The 2,985-yard course turned the river area adjacent to the city into a scenic spot. Atmosphere and challenging holes mark the Harbour Golf Club and Re-sort, a championship course, along the Lake Diefenbaker shoreline. The 6,405 yard course is located next to a ma-rina in a bay near Elbow. Players enjoy fairways

with the smell of fresh water, sand dunes and views of sail boats on the lake. Just 40 minutes drive from Moose Jaw, the Long Creek Golf Course at Avon-lea has golfers play along Long Creek coulee farm country. The Long Creek course, 6,542 yards, attracts visitors from Regina, the province’s capital city. About 90 minutes from Moose Jaw the nine-hole Sageview Golf Course in the Palliser Regional Park at Riverhurst made the top 10 list for the Saskatch-ewan Automobile Association in 2014. Great scenery among sand dunes, sage-brush and shores of Lake Diefenbaker may distract some golfers. In the south the Willow Bunch Golf Course, in a coulee near where Sitting Bull and his fleeing tribes camped 150 years ago, golfers can imagine the past. Thomson Lake, an oasis located in the middle of the Prairies near Lafleche, has nine holes along the trees planted by park founders. The 3,000 yard Coronach Golf Course wends its way along the Prairie within sight of the major power plant. The lounge and pro shop are located in a heritage railway station.

Miller Express gear up for new season

Members of the Moose Jaw Miller Express celebrate a late-game home run during the 2017 season. The Moose Jaw Miller Express have made Ross Wells Park one of the premier destinations for fans of high-level baseball in the province. The local squad takes the field in the Western Major Baseball League, a 12-team league featuring teams from throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. The league is considered one of the top summer collegiate baseball leagues in Canada and features many elite NCAA Division I and II players. The Miller Express – coached by long-time bench boss Michael Hunt – posted a 23-25 record last season, reaching the first round of the playoffs where they lost to the eventual league champion Swift Current 57s. The team plays at arguably the best baseball park in

Saskatchewan; Ross Wells Park is often lauded as a true jewel of the sport any time conversations about the sport come up. The park can accommodate over 2,000 fans and is often the place to be on warm summer nights. The WMBL’s schedule is especially compact, kicking off at the beginning of June and wrapping up 48 games later at the end of July. The team plays almost every night as a result, with plenty of action to keep baseball fans entertained. Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for seniors and $5 for students (six years and older). Fans can also purchase a Buddy Pack of 25 tickets for $195. For more information, contact the Miller Express at 306-691-1402.

WHL Warriors are Moose Jaw’s team

The Moose Jaw Warriors finished first place overall in the Western Hockey League regular season and in this photo they are celebrating their overtime win in Game 2 of the first round of playoffs against the Prince Albert Raiders. 2018

There can be little question that the Moose Jaw Warriors are part of the heart and soul of the Moose Jaw sports community – and after a season filled with success that feeling has only intensified. The 2017-18 Western Hockey League campaign was like none other for the Tribe. Several years of building toward this season paid off in spectacular fashion as the Warriors finished the

regular season with a 52-15-2-3 record and 107 points, besting their previous best-ever record by an impressive eight wins. Most impressively, the Warriors finished first overall in the Western Hockey League and were presented with the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy during the team awards night. It’s tough to have that many wins without some spectacular performances on the ice, with Jayden Halbgewachs leading the way. The 20-year-old forward finished the season as the WHL scoring leader, scoring a team-record-tying 70 goals and 129 points. Fellow Warriors overager Brayden Burke led the league in scoring much of the season before a late injury saw him miss a halfdozen games. He finished the campaign with 31 goals and 113 points, while Justin Almeida came within a couple of points of the century mark after scoring 43 goals and 98 points. Goaltender Brody Willms set a team record with 37 wins while finishing fifth in the WHL with a 3.00 goals against average. The Warriors also had a major highlight outside of Mosaic Place, as captain Brett Howden, tradedeadline acquisition Kale Clague and head coach Tim Hunter were all members of the gold-medal winning Team Canada squad from the 2018 World Junior Championships.

That pile of white stuff at Chaplin is not potash

The sights are out of this world driving on the Trans-Canada Highway by the village of Chaplin. Visitors are flanked on one side by a flat lake with a sulphur odour and white covered shores. On the other side small mountainous piles of white stuff separate the highway from a factory on the north. The white stuff has been mistakenly described as potash in a video posted on You Tube. The piles of white material are raw sodium sulphate, a chemical mined from the lake bottom and used for a variety of products from paper production, cosmetics and explosives to starch and window de-frosters, The sodium sulphate in the lake was deposited thousands of years ago when the salt sea covering most of the Prairies evaporated and the salt deposits

concentrated.. The sodium sulphate plant at Chaplin shares the shallow alkaline lake with numerous bird species all year and other species for short periods of time. Chaplin Lake is a critical stopover in May and August for millions of birds on their annual migrations north and south. Birds stop to rest and gain weight for up to 10 days before proceeding on their 3,000 mile flights. The lake’s population of tiny shrimp is a delicacy for birds. The largest Saskatchewan population of the endangered piping plover lives on the lake flats along with other shorebirds from upland sand pipers to the Wilson’s phalaropes and the colourful American avocet. The sodium sulphate harvest is managed to keep the birds’ food source and habitat healthy. To see how the mineral plant and the birds’ environment operates together stop at the Chaplin Nature Centre. The Centre’s displays teach viewers about the role Chaplin Lake plays in bird migrations and the local shorebirds. The centre offers tours of the extensive road network along and through the lake where visitors can see the birds and view firsthand how the birds and mineral harvesters co-exist.

Hidden attraction found deep in the South Country Thirteen years ago the Town of Assiniboia welcomed the opening of the Shurniak Art Gallery. The 8,000 square foot gallery displays the collected art works of business executive Bill Shurniak. The gallery was the retired globe trotting business leader’s way of saying thank you to the community where he started his career as a bank teller — a job from which he was rapidly promoted. Eventually, the son of Polish immigrants from nearby Limerick, did business consulting on four continents — North America, Europe, Asia and Australia — gradually building his collection of art from all places. He sought out works by “up and coming” artists from paintings to sculpture to Indigenous themed art. That collection, or parts of it, are rotated along with local art work in the gallery. Featured this spring are Sandra Lamontagne, Kent Tate/Sharon Olson and the Group of Ten photographers. Not everyone was certain of the gallery’s success initially. Shurniak received approval to build the gallery and gift it to the town only after ensuring the operation will never be a drag on taxpayers.

If the town ever finds the gallery too burdensome, the collection and building will be sold. All proceeds will go to scholarships at the University of Saskatchewan. No one talks about that possibility any more. The tour buses keep arriving and complementing individual visiting groups. Visitors tour seven art rooms, each named for a local village. Canadian paintings include pieces by Alan C. Collier, Nicholas de Grandmaison, James Henderson, Doris McCarthy, Franklin Arbuckle, Yehouda Chaki, and Allen Sapp. Fresh Start, the in-house cafe offers home-made baking and treats.

Claybank brick plant kilns a sure fire attraction

The Blue Hills looming high southeast of Moose Jaw got their name from the rich bluish clay soil — clay used to build one of Saskatchewan’s first industries. The Claybank Brick plant, located on 256 acres at the foot of the hills, is a national heritage site and has been called one of the best examples still left of early 20th Century industry in North America. The plant and machinery from the clay storage sheds to the mold rooms to the brick presses and kilns are much as they were in 1912 when the factory was opened after local investors raised the equivalent of $12 million in today’s money to build the place. Fortunately for visitors, the Claybank and District Historical Society has restored much of the factory,

operating the site as a tourist attraction from May until the end of August. Visitors can arrange guided tours or do a self-guided tour through the cluster of buildings. The plant included a brick bunkhouse sleeping 40 workers and a kitchen. The two-storey bunkhouse building has been restored to serve as a gift shop/ concession and offices for the Historical Society. When at the bunkhouse don’t forget to try the mouth-watering home-made saskatoon pie. Or bring a picnic lunch and have pie for dessert. For the more adventurous, the plant site offers an opportunity to hike into the nearby Massold canyons to see where the clay came from and to glimpse local wildlife. The plant attracts school tours as well as other visitors. Once a year on the last Sunday in June, the plant pulls out all the stops for a Heritage Day celebration. Visitors can ride the railway jigger, view and try old time skills like rope making, and see entertainers perform as well as tour the buildings. The site is a slow 30-minute drive from Moose Jaw. To go: Take Highway One east of Moose Jaw to Highway 39, turn right on Highway 339 to Briercrest. Continue on 339 to Claybank.

Receding glaciers left Dirt Hills sand region south of Moose Jaw A large area south and east of Moose Jaw, called the Dirt Hills, was left by receding glaciers between 10,000 and 12,000 years ago. Monstrous chunks of ice peeling off glaciers left holes now marked by lakes and potholes of water. Pure sandy soil was scraped from elsewhere and left in this region west from Avonlea’s Blue Hills to the Cactus Hills near Briercrest south to the Dirt Hills in the Spring Valley area. Receding glaciers left scars across North America but the Dirt Hills are the largest push hill system in Canada. High ridges, coulees and wide valleys mark the countryside, providing habitat for wildlife and since the 1880s, for cattle ranching. Clumps of old planted trees along the grid roads are reminders of the flow of homesteaders, many from Austria, who settled in the sandy hills during the early 1900s. The highest point in a line between the Cypress Hills and Ontario’s mountains was identified here by federal surveyors. It is marked by a geodetic cairn used by

the Dominion Survey to develop the land titles survey. On the south end, Oro Lake, hidden in the hills, was once a bustling summer playground. Today a few people still camp there. The Royal North West Mounted Police frequented the deep lake. Some Dirt Hills residents, realizing the significance of the hills and understanding the connection of natural setting and culture, founded the Spring Valley and District Interpretive Centre with headquarters in the old Artesian School in the hamlet of Spring Valley. Members of the centre welcome and conduct guided tours of the Dirt Hills, explaining the features and history of the places between May 15 and September 15. Visitors will view the 100-year-old Roman Catholic Church with its unique plaster Stations of the Cross. The tour includes awesome views, Oro Lake, a visit to a buffalo jump and settler’s stone house. Be prepared for a full day. To arrange a tour call Elaine at 306-4752640.

Moose Jaw SOUVENIRS to


“the friendly city”


101 2018 Moose Jaw

Exploring our province with 2018 Saskatchewanderer: Lots to do in the ‘land of the living skies’ are some other places in Saskatchewan to visit that can be a great family trip, exploring your own province. 2018 Saskatchewanderer, Kevin Dunn is on a tour of our province and along the way, he has made some provincial travel destination suggestions that he says are to be added to your list of “must visit” places in Saskatchewan. Last year, Moose Jaw was voted one of the top 10 coolest downtowns in Canada. It also hosted one of the biggest country concerts—Coors Banquet after outvoting a number of small towns across the country. Again in 2017, it was home to Rogers Hometown Hockey. As you can see from these huge events, the Friendly City has been bubbling with activities and the rest of Canada is taking notice. Its historic downtown, Tunnels of

Moose Jaw, its featured gigantic sculpture of Mac the Moose and the colorful murals across the city are just some of the other things that make this city great. At the heart of the city is its warm and welcoming residents who boast Moose Jaw pride. Our city is filled with great achievements and lots of things to do. It is definitely one of the cities in Saskatchewan that is a mustvisit! In addition to Moose Jaw, there

Here are Kevin’s top 5 places to visit across Saskatchewan: #1 Waskesiu Prince Albert National Park Often you hear of Waskesiu being the hot tourist spot to be at in the summer months. True. But did you know it is open in the winter too? Waskesiu is absolutely beautiful in the winter time. You can borrow ski or snowshoe equipment to head out onto the trails, walk the famous Boundary

102 2018 Moose Jaw

Bog or Waskesiu River, enjoy the fluffy snow covered trees, and at the end of the day relax up on the rooftop in one of two hot tubs at the Hawood Inn, which is open year-round. #2 Big River, Ness Creek Site -Big River is located in north central Saskatchewan on the edge of the Boreal Forest. The landscape that surrounds it is diverse; with rolling hills covered in dense forest and lakes that stretch for miles and miles. No matter what season it is, the scenery in and around Big River is spectacular. Also being within a 5 minute drive to the local ski hill of Timber Ridge, and a twenty-minute drive from the popular Ness Creek site and west side of Prince Albert National Park - Big River is well located for an excellent experience of enjoying the outdoors. #3 Elk Ridge Resort - Just outside of Waskesiu in the

Prince Albert National Park is one of Saskatchewan’s premier all-season resorts. Elk Ridge Resort. It feels like a winter village. During the winter months, activities are endless and so are the trails. You can snowshoe, cross- country ski, skate on the famous Elk Ridge Pond and also go tobogganing! #4 Greenwater Provincial Park - Greenwater Provincial Park is located in east central Saskatchewan. Situated on the edge of the Porcupine Forest, the Park hosts a number of reasons to why you should make a visit. During the winter months, snow is often deep and the lake ice is covered with fishing shacks. What makes Greenwater unique in the winter is it becomes the central hub for snowmobile trails. In fact the park hosts up to 100 kilometers of groomed trails for snowmobilers to use. Lodge rentals are available all season - so you can get comfortable, making yourself

at home and relax. #5 Wapiti Valley Ski Resort -Uniquely located in the Wapiti Valley, the ski resort is the perfect hill to learn how to ski or board. At the top, the view is astonishing. Landscape surrounding Wapiti is diverse with aspen, birch, and poplar trees covering the rolling valley slopes along the North Saskatchewan River. This is skiers’ paradise in Saskatchewan. With multiple runs, and close proximity to communities such as Melfort, Wapiti Valley Ski Resort makes can be the perfect day trip getaway for the whole family. Kevin may be stopping in your town as he tours Saskatchewan.

Top things to see and do in Moose Jaw from TripAdvisor

Travellers from around the world have discovered the many things to see and do in Moose Jaw and TripAdvisor has documented some of the top attractions in the city. At the top of the list is Tunnels of Moose Jaw, with two options for guests to visit: Chicago Connection relating Al Capone’s bootlegging operations and Passage to Fortune that tells of the early hardships of Chinese immigrants. “The actors made it an interactive and fun event,” said a visitor from Kindersley who was one among 967 reviews from tunnel visitors.

Second on the list is the Moose Jaw Western Development Museum with reviews gauging it as a top notch experience, with friendly staff and clean bathrooms to complement the many exhibits that are touchable by youngsters interested in the old cars and modes of transportation.

Casino Moose Jaw is ranked third on the most recent TripAdvisor listing, with 216 reviews recorded. One visitor described it as a “quaint little casino,” but with a good food selection. In fourth place on the list of attractions is Murals of Moose Jaw, offering a display of wall art that one guest said is “great works by great people.” Another comment: “the murals are classy and well done (not graffiti).” A visitor from Calgary had this to say: “Many years ago my best friend and I went to Moose Jaw for a weekend getaway. We took pictures of all the murals. This was the unleashing of my obsession with murals. Now no matter where I go I look for murals and must get pics of them. I think

more cities/towns should get local artists to put up murals, especially when linked to the town/ city’s history.” This person visited the murals again in June 2017.

The Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre on the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds came in at fifth on the things to do list. “I love this place. Very knowledgeable staff and the owls are sooo… cute. Hard to believe something as beautiful is on the endangered list. The entire experience was very rewarding,” said one of the 56 reviews offered during the May to September season.

Another May to September attraction is the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum which ranks sixth of the 29 events listed. “This museum is more than expected. The Sukanen ship is quite an oddity and the result of an incredible plan to sail to Finland. All kinds of artifacts are well displayed in buildings and grain sheds throughout the property. We spent five hours there, so be prepared to walk and peek,” said a visitor from Edmonton. The walking trails, wildlife, birds, playgrounds, burger restaurant and the campground were highlights for visitors to Wakamow Valley, seventh on the TripAdvisor list. “There is a little of everything in this park: playground equipment for children of all ages, picnic areas, hamburger stand, ice cream, pathways for pedestrians and for bicycles as well, dog walking, canoe or kayak on the river, lots and lots of green space — beautiful serene setting along the river in the mid-

dle of Moose Jaw,” said a satisfied visitor from Osoyoos, B.C. Gift and speciality shops claimed eighth spot, with comments complimenting the variety available in the city. Moose Jaw Cultural Centre on Main Street is given ninth spot and described as a nice, old-style theatre with fantastic sound. “The Moose Jaw Cultural Centre and the Mae Wilson Theatre are two of Moose Jaw’s finest attractions. They are wonderful venues for the visual and performing arts. Any show held there is sure to be a hit. The gallery is a great blank canvas for the showing artist to put work on and the theatre has a superb decor, wonderful sound and lighting and has disabled friendly access. I would suggest that if you are in town for a visit, please take time to take in an exhibition or a production,” said one of reviews. Occupying 10th spot is the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery in Crescent Park. “This museum and art gallery are great. The art space is top notch, good spaces and light, and the curator has great taste. They seem to focus on Saskatchewan artists, of which there are many, many fabulous ones. The other side is the museum which tells the Moose Jaw story succinctly but in a fun way. The history here is fascinating and not what you’d expect from a small place in the middle of the prairies. A touching display relates to the collision of two aircraft above the town in the 1950’s - a terrible tragedy - and very moving objects to make you think. If you have some time in Moose Jaw, visit this ‘must-see’ museum and art gallery! It’s also set in a gorgeous little park, and is right next to the public library, a stunning piece of architecture…” TripAdvisor was founded in 2000 in the United States and gathers opinions from regular travellers on hotels, restaurants, attractions and other travel-related businesses. Findings are then ranked according to the reviews.
