Tomorrow’s paper

It has been a busy March for Wilkie and the surrounding communities and the March 24th issue of the Unity Wilkie Press-Herald reflects that. Check it out for lots of photos and stories, including:

  • a Hockeyville update and quotes from the rally at the Saskcan Community Centre last Saturday night;
  • information from the annual Delta Co-op meeting, this year held in Unity;
  • photos and bios of the adjudicators for the upcoming Unity Music Festival; and
  • one McLurg student wins provincial gold in wrestling and another is a provincial hockey champion!
A screen was set up on the ice at the Saskcan Community Centre in Wilkie SK to show Hockey NIght in Canada March 18. Anticipation was high when the top two finalists for the title of Kraft Hockeyville 2017 were announced, but it was not to be.  As remarked upon by many in attendance though, with Ituna representing the Western region, “still Saskatchewan.” The final announcement will be made April 1.
