Busy Times at Pangman Pool This Summer

Well, September has arrived and school will be starting next week.  It just seems like yesterday that the pool opened. Summer seems to have just flown by this year.

Thanks to all the volunteers that came out to help tidy up the pool, with a very special thanks to the staff of RBC in Ogema.  You all did a wonderful job sprucing the pool up.

As well a big thanks to Shelbi Rowland for once again managing the pool and teaching swimming lessons. Also, thanks to all the lifeguards who worked at the pool this summer.

Unfortuantely the boiler gave out this summer, so the Pool will be holding fundraisers to help raise the funds needed to replace the boiler.  The first fundraiser was a barbeque at the pool and a midnight swim which was held on August 27th. Thanks to everyone who came out to supper the pool.

Let’s all come together and help the pool raise the funds needed to buy a new boiler so the water will be nice and warm next summer for swimming.

Pangman EMS News 2014

EMS Service Map

The wine glass outline on the above map is our actual designated coverage area with Truax & Lang at the top end and the USA Border to the South.  Our Western Border we share with Moose Jaw, Bengough and Coronach. Eastern has Weyburn and Radville.

Radville is frequently out of service so we then cover the yellow shaded area at the right side of the wine glass outline.

Our call volume as Ambulance varies between 150 to 200 calls per year. We are supported by Pangman Fire and Rescue throughout our area which usually is about 10 calls for them.

We are in the process of ordering our new ambulance.  It will be a 4-wheel drive with a price tag of about $140,000.00. Our community share of this will be about $80,000.00. Between last year’s fundraising and the proceeds from an estate, we have most of the needed funds in place.

However, the Rescue Vehicle needs to be replaced as it is unsafe to operate because weight of equipment carried is too heavy for the vehicle.

The Fire Department has about $20,000.00 available from the previous fundraising, but still needs about $30,000.00 to replace their van. They are the priority for our Pangman Emergency Services fundraising. We will be starting another Raffle quite soon and are trying to organize some other fundraising events. Your support will certainly go that direction.

Their only other source of funds is RM and Village grants.  We are trying to get the other 9 RM’s they serve as Rescue to provide some financial support. Their fees for service from SGI cover operating costs, but no replacement.

Our Pangman Ambulance staff are:

  • Keith House
  • Pam Rowland
  • Barry Kessler
  • Estella Strobl
  • Coralee West
  • Cindy Horner
  • Shawn Howse
  • Hayley Hatt

We would like to thank the community for their continued support of our EMS services.

 

Daycare Fundraiser Featuring The Judy K Five

The Pangman Daycare Fundraiser featuring The Judy K Five was held on Saturday, April 27th at the Abundant Living Church in Pangman.

It was a nice April evening and over 75 people came out to hear the Judy K Five play. They performed some of Judy’s original songs and some favourite blues and boogie songs. The Judy K Five is a band of local musicians led by Judy Koszman, from Bengough, on keyboard, Doug McCullough on guitar, Phil Trylinski on drums, Gary Penner on base guitar and Maurice Koszman on spoons.

This local group of musicians have been practicing since January and they were delighted to play to help raise money for our daycare’s summer programming which is for children aged 6 to 12. This summer the daycare will be offering 4 special programs for school aged children: Kids in the Kitchen, Kids in Motion, Creative Art and Woodworking.

During intermission everyone enjoyed coffee and some fabulous deserts. In fact, the deserts were so good the band had a bit of a time getting everyone back for the 2nd set.

The Daycare would like to thank everyone who came out to support the summer program and to the Judy K Five for performing.
