Joel Decque from Paris, France arrived in Pangman Sunday afternoon, on a 14 speed bike, having travelled in the wind from Weyburn. He was needing to tent for the night and the cafe wasn’t open. So we made arrangements for him to eat at the Care Home and both the residents and himself had a great time. He is travelling to Vancouver to meet up with his family the end of August and flying back to Paris on Sept 3rd.
His stop in Pangman offered the residents an opportunity to have a visit with someone from another country, which was enjoyable for everyone. He exchanged e-mails & blog addresses and was very happy for the evening. He will be on his way in the morning after coffee at the Community Centre. Small town hospitality at its finest. Always glad to get in on these visits.
The train came to Pangman to pick them up and took them to Ogema. In Ogema we were greeted by the Ogema Museum folks who gave us a ride on the people mover over to the Museum. There they had a very lovely lunch prepared for us.
It was a bit rainy but it was a very enjoyable outing for everyone. There were sponsors who provided the ride and the train folks, Cheryl & Devon Generous, volunteered their time for that day. The train ride brings back an “era” that is long past so a time of memory for the residents.
The Ladies Auxiliary would like to remind everyone that they accept donations of Canadian Tire Money. If you would like to donate your Canadian Tire Money you can leave it at the Hometown Cafe or give it to any Ladies Auxiliary Member.
The Canadian Tire Money received is used to purchase items for the Deep South Personal Care Home.
