SHAUNAVON WILDLIFE HONOURS BOB ALLEMAND

One of the important aspects of living in rural areas is the connection to nature and wildlife conservation. The goal is maintaining a balance of healthy wildlife population growth and control for the good of the ecosystem. Different aspects of conservation include preservation of endangered species (like the Burrowing Owl), population control of predators, as well as habitat preservation among many others. Bob Allemand of Shaunavon was recognized in this regard for his extraordinary and unique term of service as Official Measurer for the Shaunavon Wildlife Federation. Bob was honoured for his contributions during 50 years of service. That makes him the longest serving Official Measurer in the province of Saskatchewan. That is an amazing feat. Congratulations to Bob for the recognition of service and his impressive dedication.

ART WITH EQUITY CONTINUES

The show's over at the Grand Coteau, but we are dedicated to sharing the works of the residents here. This week have just one inclusion from Jimmy Hirons, an acrylic piece on canvas.

Thanks to Joan for the photos.
