ISummer Art Tours

magine loading up the SUV with friends or family for a warm weekend of interesting sights, people and conversations. Or perhaps a daytrip with the special people in your life to make memories. We all need some RnR...rest and relaxation? Or…River and Rail ArtVenture!

Now in its 4th year, River and Rail ArtVenture is a free, self-guided tour that encourages you to explore, indulge and create memories with our Makers in Elbow, Broderick and Outlook as well as rural venues nearby. Makers are the local artists, artisans and agricultural entrepreneurs who are ready to welcome you to their studios, show and explain what they are passionate about, and offer a wide variety of products you can take home with you.

This idea for this venture originated in 2018 and grew in response to the need to provide rural artists with a way to promote and develop their market in our South East Sask region. Volunteer developers Susan Robertson and Janet Akre had a vision to bring visitors from all over the province to experience the people and talent here. Tourism Saskatchewan provided key starting capital, recognizing the potential of the tour’s widespread draw. Since then, support has come from many partners and the tour has hosted many visitors from all over, rural and urban.

While the Makers and the towns they represent have varied each year, we are still committed to quality, development and support. This year, additions that we have embraced are live theatre, Indigenous artists, and Living Books at the Library. In each of our 19 venues, Makers will warmly welcome you.

The Tour takes place Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm daily. Start where you like and plan your own ArtVenture! Look for the venue signs and flags once you get close. For so much

more information, a map and a printable PDF brochure, check out the excellent website at www.riverandrailartventure.ca What else can you add to the weekend? There are golf courses, all that Lake Diefenbaker offers and homestyle restaurants. Stay overnight, spend an evening hiking, biking, or just relaxing around the campfire to the sounds of the prairie.

This is an immersion into the soul of West Central Saskatchewan.

If you have already been on the River and Rail ArtVenture, you know that this is no ordinary gallery tour.

If you haven’t, check it out online, on Facebook and on Instagram. Then come for the real deal on June 22-23. You’ll be glad you did!

Down the Road

ost people don’t go to Las Vegas for the skiing. But there is a ski hill there, Mount Charleston, which is less than an hours drive from the Vegas strip.

The Mount Charleston ski area doesn't much look like Banff or Jasper, it's not as developed, but Mount Charleston itself reaches to just shy of 12,000 feet (2,300 metres).

That's a tad higher than the highest peak in Banff and a tad lower than the highest peak in Jasper.

It’s the warm climate that is the main attraction of Las Vegas as an escape-fromwinter destination, that and the casinos, the shows and, perhaps not least, the party atmosphere.

However, Las Vegas is also attractive because of its many hiking opportunities, both on the mountains close by and in the desert all around it. And too, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon are right there on the doorstep.

I was passing these comments along to the radio station lady who was on the phone asking me if I’d been to Las Vegas before. She was asking as part of a contest that Mrs B had entered me in, a contest to win tickets to visit Las Vegas. The radio lady was calling to let me know that I was in the final draw.

The hook in the contest, if any additional incentive was needed, was that the trip would include tickets to see The Rolling Stones in concert.

And that was the pull for me.

Because I have seen the Stones in concert before - almost 60 years ago. (Seriously? Almost sixty years later and they are still at it? Wow.)

But a few things have changed since then. Some members of the band are gone. Brian Jones drowned in a swimming pool in 1969, only 27 years old.

Bill Wyman left the band in the early '90's after three decades as a founding member. (Now, at 88 he is still performing, just last year playing bass with the Stones on their 'Hackney Diamonds' album.)

Charlie Watts died only a few years ago, 2021, aged 80, still an official member of the group. He left behind a wife who died a bare year and a half later - maybe from a broken heart - she and Charlie had been married for 57 years.

The remaining members of the band are still going strong.

Ronnie Wood joined the band in 1975 when he was 28 years old - and now at age 77 he has almost 50 years in.

Keith Richards, a founding member of the band, looks younger today than he did in his heyday. Well, maybe not younger but certainly less close to death. The headband he currently sports, though, doesn’t exactly speak to his fashion sense having improved. But he’s rich and famous and has made it to 80 years of age -

June Happenings in Borden

none of which are feats to be taken lightly - so I’m pretty sure he sets the fashion rather than follows it.

And Mick Jagger is now Sir Michael Philip Jagger. Who could have figured that 60 years ago? Mick, becoming a knight of the British realm along with the likes of Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad.

Mick, however, has had a few more Guineveres to contend with. His most recent Guinevere is a much younger woman with whom he had a child a few years agoMick but a 73 old youngster at the time. And now he’s 80 years old and still rockin' and a rollin', rockin' and a reelin'. And touring.

(Where does he get the energy? My morning schedule goes more like: shower, breakfast, recovery nap.)

A few other things have changed in the last sixty years, too.

Those were the days, 60 years ago, when girls weren’t allowed to wear pants to school and boys were sent home with instructions to get a haircut if their hair was too long.

And when the Beatles came on the scene, more boys were sent home for being so radical as to show up with Beatles-cut bangs.

But there was nothing radical about the Beatles (except for their popularity)they wore suits on stage and generally stood still like you were supposed to (unless, of course, you were Elvis).

The Beatles were more or less main-stream, just four young guys singing songs of innocence like "I want to hold your hand" and "Please, Mr. Postman".

Then, right on their heels, came the edgy, counter-culture Rolling Stones. They didn’t wear suits - reputedly, they would sleep in their clothes the night before a concert to promote their "grunge" look. And they deliberately eschewed the innocence of hand-holding and the writing of love letters. The sexual innuendo of “(I can’t get no) satisfaction” and "Let's spend the night together" was the subject of much adolescent tittering and leering.

And Mick didn’t stand still when he performed - he would be prancing and dancing, cavorting and gyrating, in constant motion, putting on a show, him and the rest of the gang - scruffily clad and singing off-colour lyrics.

And now here we are today, 60 years later and Mick is still a man in motion and the Stones are still performing, still a headline act.

So, maybe things have changed in the last 60 years, maybe even some for the better, but somehow it's gratifying to know some things haven't changed - at least not unrecognizably so.

Anyway, it turns out that I didn't win the contest - too bad because I would have liked to see Mick and the guys again. But maybe that's just as well - the concert doesn't even start until after my bedtime.

Sir Mick and Keith and Ronnie will be there though - still rockin', still rollin’. Still standing.

Town Council held a regular meeting on May 14th. The Town hired Stevenson Industrial Registration Ltd. to convert the arena ice plant from R22 to R449A refrigerant at an estimated cost of $40,000. R22 refrigerant is no longer made and is extremely expensive. Switching to a different refrigerant will buy some time before replacement of the ice plant becomes absolutely necessary.

A new Recreation Association Bylaw was passed to address some minor housekeeping items.

MP Report

Pause the Carbon Tax

Iam joining Pierre Poilievre and the Common Sense Conservatives in calling on Justin Trudeau to pause the carbon tax, the federal gas tax, and the GST for the summer to bring some desperately needed relief for Canadians.

After nine years of Justin Trudeau, Canadians are being forced to cancel their summer vacations as the Liberals’ tax-and-spend agenda has made even a simple road trip unaffordable. Parents can barely afford basic necessities, much less a summer vacation.

Families will have to pay $700 more for food this year than they did in 2023. Last year, food banks had to handle a record 2 million visits in a single month, with a million more visits expected in 2024. Homeless encampments are common in every city across Canada.

In the middle of this historic cost-of-living crisis, Trudeau and his NDP coalition partners decided to hike the carbon tax by 23 percent. This is just one step in his plan to quadruple the carbon tax over the next six years, making everything more expensive at the worst possible time. In fact, since Trudeau became Prime Minister, gas prices have surged by more than 50%.

Kelly Block MP May 21, 2024

The independent Parliamentary Budget Officer has confirmed that most families pay more in the carbon tax than they receive in the rebate.

This year, Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost Saskatchewan families an extra $2618.

My Conservative colleagues and I are calling on Trudeau to give Canadians a break this summer by axing the carbon tax, the gas tax, and the GST between Victoria Day and Labour Day so families can afford to take a simple summer vacation.

This will save Saskatchewan families $860 this summer.

Conservatives will axe the tax on everything for everyone in a carbon tax election, but until that can happen, Trudeau must adopt this common sense measure to give Canadians a break this summer.

‘STAY-cation’ Nature Activities

Calling all Private Eyes!

Spring is Here and It’s Time to NatureWatch!

With all the little ninjas and private eyes in and around their yards this spring, the coming weeks will be a perfect time to get them engaged in NatureWatch! This citizen science project gives public of all ages an opportunity to learn about their environment while contributing to a data set that scientists need to monitor and protect it. This data is being used to add to our knowledge of the effects of climate change and other impacts on biodiversity.

People of all ages and skill sets can participate in NatureWatch. The four programs allow you to participate at your own pace and chosen locations, even in your own backyard. While the monitoring protocols are scientifically rigorous, they are quick and easy to follow, and cater to beginner and expert alike. Some of the NatureWatch programs are PlantWatch, FrogWatch, and WormWatch.

PlantWatch participants observe the first bloom, mid bloom and leaf out of 18 native or 2 non-native plants in their area.

Observations of a plant at the same location over many years will help us understand how climate change is affecting the blooming times of specific plants in Saskatchewan.

FrogWatch participants listen for toad and frog calls during mating season in the springtime.

TFrogs and toads can be used as indicator species of a healthy environment, because they are vulnerable to changes in the atmosphere, the land, or the water. By participating in this program you will help increase our knowledge of frogs and toads in Canada.

WormWatch participants record how many and what species of earthworms are located at their site. The number of worms in a specific volume of earth can tell us a lot about how the habitat is being managed, because earthworms are very sensitive to soil disturbance.

All of these monitoring programs can be found on the website www.naturewatch.ca For more information on how to participate follow Nature Saskatchewan on Facebook and Instagram.

You can email Rebecca rmagnus@naturesask.ca

Happy NatureWatching !

10th Annual Back 40 Show & Shine in Delisle

his July marks the 10th annual Back 40 Show & Shine in Delisle. The Back 40 Show & Shine started as part of the Delisle Days and Rodeo in 2014. The show was located at the AGT arena parking lot, and soon after, out grew that location. In 2017 the show moved to 2nd Street East in front of the schools. When the Delisle Days Committee decided to join the Vanscoy Ag Society to create Fall Fest with a later September date, the Back 40 Show & Shine decided to go out on it's own to keep the July date to due to it's popularity among the local car community. With the continued growth of the show, in 2021 the Show & Shine moved to 1st Street West in front of the business allowing the local stores to add to the experience of the Show & Shine. The largest attendance was in 2023 with 172 vehicles registered that day. What sets

this show apart from most, is that Back 40 Embroidery designs a new logo every year and imprints the logo on t-shirts, hoodies, blankets, cups and hats. These items are given away, as door prizes, to each person who registers a vehicle. As mentioned the logo is unique to each show, used on the poster and on the door prizes. The very first show did not have it's car on the poster, so it was decided to have the 2014 logo to come back for the 2024 show. This car has special significance to the owners of Back 40 Embroidery, a 1956 Ford Fairlane that was owned and restored by one of the owners of Back 40 Embroidery's father. This years show is set for Saturday, July 13th, 2024.

Donavon Community Club Field Day

The Donavon Community Club's 3rd Annual Field day will take place on June 22nd this year and once again, it has grown!

The Field Day consists of a Show & Shine, Tradeshow, Kids Zone, Slo-pitch Tournament, Silent Auction, Concession and Beer Garden and this year it has expanded to include The Redneck Olympics which consists of events for 4 person teams. Another extra event will be the Live Window Auction, while the old windows weren't working for the needs of the school, they will definitely work for other people.

OThis day is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Community Club with all money raised going into the Donavon School Repairs and Restoration Fund. Over the past 2 years the committee has managed to raise enough money to replace the windows and do some MUCH needed interior painting and cleaning all while providing a great atmosphere for the community to meet and catch up.

This year's Donavon Field Day is sure to be the best yet and always offers something for the entire family!

Para Athlete Colette Bourgonje Speaks to DES Students

n May 8, 2024, the Delisle Elementary School in conjunction with the school Student Community Council had the honour of hosting guest speaker Colette Bourgonje, who spoke to the kids about physical diversity, inclusion, and the importance of a positive attitude. Colette’s story is one of inspiration and determination. A car accident in 1980 altered her life forever, when she suffered injuries which left her lower body paralyzed, a mere two months before graduation. Colette quickly adapted and committed to rehabilitation, while continuing her studies at the University of Saskatchewan, where she became the first person to graduate from her college in a wheelchair. After graduation, Colette worked as an elementary physical education and classroom teacher for Saskatoon Public Schools, while training and competing on a national and international level. As a committed and determined athlete, she quickly climbed the ranks in Para Nordic event and has had a career of trailblazing for para athletes. With six winter Paralympic medals, 4 summer Paralympic medals, multiple World Championship and World Cup medals, her career was remarkable in its diversity and longevity. At the Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver 2010, Colette won silver and bronze medals in cross country skiing, putting her name in the history books as the first-ever Canadian to win a Paralympic medal on home snow. Colette is one of Canada’s most prolific Paralympians and she understands the athlete experience and value of sport. She has been an instrumental member of the Canadian sport community for decades, and a pioneer in Saskatchewan sport, never hesitating to give back to her community and share her experi-

PExciting news from the Delisle and Area Angel Tree

roviding food security for everyone in our community year-round has long been a goal for the Angel Tree. We have now partnered with the Delisle Pharmacy to create a Community Pantry to make this goal a reality!

The Pantry is located in the foyer of the Pharmacy and open when the Pharmacy is open. The goal is to always have some non-perishables available for anyone that needs it, because we want everyone in our community to have access to food.

So, if times are tough and your pantry shelves are empty, please stop by and grab what you need to make yourself or your family a meal. And on the other hand, if your Pantry is full, please donate and drop off a few items.

The Pantry has been open for a few weeks already and we want to thank everyone that have already contributed

with donations, and also a big thank you to everyone that have used this service. We really appreciate everyone that needs it using it- and using it respectfully taking what they need, but also leaving lots for others in need. We restock the shelves occasionally, but the shelves aren’t monitored constantly, so everyone needs to check expiry dates themselves, and for now this is only for shelf stable non-perishables.

A huge Thank you to Connie and the Delisle Pharmacy for offering this space for the community! We encourage everyone to check out the Pantry and the Pharmacy - and please support this amazing local business in our community!

If you have suggestions or questions for the Pantry, we can be reached at delisleangeltree@gmail.com or through our pages on Facebook and Instagram.

ences. A strong female leader, Colette believes in active living and has worked to promote healthy lifestyles and providing opportunities for people – especially children and those with disabilities – to be active.

"Congratulations on building an accessible playground that will serve generations of students now and in the future. Who knows maybe the child that gets a chance to play on this playground may become the next Paralympian/Teacher."

Colette Bourgonje

Colette talked to the students about having a positive attitude especially during difficult times. Her story is an example of commitment in the face of adversity and is inspiring to all members of the community. The Delisle Elementary School SCC has an Ableism & Disability Awareness Subcommittee. Its vision is to help make students aware of the pervasiveness of ableism within our society and not accept this as the status quo. The goal is to develop an awareness and understanding of disability and diversity within the school, community and beyond.

If you are interested in being apart of this initiative and/or would like to donate to the building of the accessible playground please contact Delisle Elementary School.

Delisle Elementary School Playground Equipment

Delisle Elementary School is fundraising to build an accessible and inclusive playground for our community to enjoy for years to come. The community of Delisle has a storied history around athletics and activity. This is evident in the names of our parks, the pictures on the walls in our community centers, and the stories we pass on to our children. With all we have accomplished, we are also a community that continues to give back to future generations.

Delisle Elementary School (DES) is full of this history as well. Students tell stories that their parents have told them about their experiences at the school as they make their own memories. Part of this history and many of these stories center around the playground at the elementary school. As a growing school, our playground equipment is becoming outdated and unable to meet the needs of all our students, especially those with limited mobility.

Eagle Creek Wildlife Federation held their annual Awards Banquet & Dance Fund Raiser on March 28 at Perdue Complex. There were great prizes, awards and delicious supper. Our annual Fish fry was April 28 at the Asquith Elks hall. There was good attendance, great fish and desserts that were enjoyed by all. We even sold some frozen fish from a northern lake.

Our next function is The Kids Fishing Derby at Eagle Creek Regional

Park, June 2 from 10am to 3pm. Free for kids 15 and under. Prizes to be won. Free drink and hot dog. Adults can fish if they have a fishing licence. No day charge at the Park gate for those that are fishing.

Our mandate is... “The wise use and management of all natural resources. The preservation of habitate for all species of fish and wildlife”.

gardless of ability. The playground will include structures that are low enough to the ground that students with mobility limitations can access the equipment. In addition, the ground surrounding the playground will be made of a material where it is easy for all students to move around on to access all parts of the playground. Our school community is starting a campaign to raise funds and awareness for this inclusive space. We are looking for local businesses to offer financial support in exchange for signage on the playground. We have had generous donations from our the great people and businesses in and around Delisle and we are just over halfway to our goal. We would love to partner with you to help grow our amazing community. For more information, contact Delisle Elementary School, or email us at desplaygroundfundraiser@gmail.com

Crop Report For the Period of May 14 - 20, 2024

Producers made considerable progress with seeding after many regions experienced delays due to rainfall. Currently, 56 per cent of the 2024 crop is in the ground. This is up from 32 per cent seeded last week, but behind the five-year average of 76 per cent and the 10-year average of 74 per cent.

Producers in the southwest, northwest and southeast are most complete at 64 per cent, 63 per cent and 61 per cent respectfully. The east-central region is 54 per cent complete, followed by the northeast and west-central regions at 48 per cent and 47 per cent.

Rainfall occurred in much of the province at varying amounts over the past week. The highest reported rainfall was in the Mossbank area at 58 mm, followed by the Meadow Lake and Choiceland areas at 52 mm and 51 mm. Although the rain has helped replenish topsoil moisture levels and improve growing conditions, many producers are hopeful for a pause in rainfall to allow seeding progress to continue.

Topsoil moisture conditions continue to improve across much of the province with the recent rainfall. Cropland topsoil moisture is rated at six per cent surplus, 89 per cent adequate and five per cent short. Hayland topsoil moisture is reported at three per cent surplus, 85 per cent adequate, 11 per cent short and one per cent very short. Similarly, pasture topsoil moisture is rated at three per cent surplus, 83 per cent adequate, 12 per cent short and two per cent very short.

Early seeded crops are beginning to emerge throughout the province with good emergence reported overall. Crop development is in the normally expected range for this time of year but seeding delays due to rainfall and cooler temperatures have slowed development in some regions of the province.

Producers are continuing to monitor pasture conditions while moving cattle. Currently, pasture conditions are rated as 12 per cent excellent, 55 per cent good, 26 per cent fair, six per cent poor and one per cent very poor across the province.

As crop emergence continues, producers are diligent in monitoring for any damage to their crops. Most of the crop damage this week was due to frost, minor flooding, wind and hail.

Although not widespread, some producers have reported crop damage due to cutworms, wireworms and flea beetles.

As the weather allows, producers will be busy continuing with seeding operations, herbicide applications, moving cattle to pasture and brandings.

Producers are reminded to keep safety top of mind while working. For any crop or livestock questions, producers are encouraged to call the Agriculture Knowledge Centre, Toll Free: 1-866-457-2377.
