On Saturday, August 7th, as part of Pangman Days, the Economic Development Board hosted a Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. About 60 people attended the breakfast.
As well the Farmers Market was held from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The vendors had a variety of items for sale including books, crafts, household items, jewellery and more. Thank you to the vendors and the buyers who came out to the Farmer’s Market.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make Pangman Days a success once again this year.
As part of Pangman Days this year we held a Community BBQ in the Gazebo Park to welcome new residents to our district. We had a good turnout with about 100 people attending. There was a variety of salads and desserts provided by the community and delicious burgers, hot dogs, buns and drinks provided by our sponsors.
Our Mayor introduced the many new residents who have moved to our district over the past few years. A couple, who are currently cycling across Canada to live in Vancouver, had stopped in for the night and they enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of our community.
A good time was had by all.
Thank you again to our sponsors: Pangman Co-op, Grainbelt Agencies, Bourassa’s, Radius Credit Union, RM of Norton, Oasis, and Kathy’s Place.
On Wednesday, July 7th, members of the Economic Development Board presented a Welcome Basket to Gavin and Debbie Porter.
Gavin and Debbie immigrated from the United Kingdom 3 years ago and until recently were living in Regina. Debbie commutes to work at Pennington’s in East Regina and Gavin drives transport for Yanke, but presently is off work due to an injury. They have a Chocolate Lab named Ruffus.
This past year we have a number of new residents in town and would like to say Welcome to all of them. We invite all the new residents to a Barbeque on Friday, August 6th at the Gazebo in the Park. It is pot luck with the burgers and buns being supplied. We hope to see all the new residents there.
Over the next few months the Economic Development Board will be presenting all the new residents from January 2010 with Welcome Baskets.
We hope that you are enjoying Pangman and hope to see you at the Barbeque and other town functions.
On Saturday evening at the Ogema Church there was a barbeque, music and special speakers. On Sunday at the Pangman church was worship with greetings from the Village of Pangman, the Province of Saskatchewan, the Government of Canada and other guests. At noon was a Potluck Dinner and a closing rally was held at 2:00 p.m.
Happy 25th Anniversary Abundant Living Ministries.
On Sunday, June 27, 2010 was the 5 km fundraiser walk for Diabetes. It was a beautiful morning for the walk. Fifteen (15) or more people turned out to walk and over $1,200.00 was raised for Diabetes research. We hope that we can make this a yearly fundraiser to help family and friends who are living with Diabetes.
Thank you to Wendy Colbow and family for planning this fundraiser. Also thanks to all those who came out to walk, the Ambulance and Fire Department, the Recreation Board, the Co-op and to the community for all their support.
On June 19th, 2010, at the Radio Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) National Conference in Edmonton, Dan McIntosh was awarded the Dave Rogers Award for the short feature on CTV Regina entitled “A School Harvest”.
This short feature aired in November 2009 and it focused on Charity Farms, a group of local farmers from Pangman and area who planted, grew, harvested and sold the grain as a fundraiser for the Pangman School.
Congratulations to Dan McIntosh, the CTV Regina team and Charity Farms.
