Focus on Fun
Thank you to residents and businesses for your amazing support of our group and our events again this year! We would not be able to hold the calibre of event that we strive to without your volunteer help and sponsorship. The events we held this year included The Night the Ladies Left (April), Spring Fling Family Dance (June), and Halloween Family Dance (October). We decided to cut back on the number of events we held compared to 2011, but to really do our best at planning the events we held. It’s so rewarding for us to see everyone out having a great time with their friends and families while being able to give back to the community with proceeds from our events.
We were able to make a donation of $8,000 to the Warman Elementary School this spring to help them raise additional funds for some much-needed playground equipment. Due to inclement weather, the playground equipment wasn’t installed until the fall but the kids will now be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
We also made a donation to the Saskatoon Rowing Club for their large contribution of helpers at The Night the Ladies Left. They helped out with serving drinks, taxi service, prize draws and clean up. We are thankful for the help they provided during this event as most of the Warman men were at home looking after the kids while the wives were out enjoying a fun evening with their friends.
