A local community member from Canwood is one of the 26 residents who has been honored with the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers, presented by the office of the Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan.
Lorna Benson was taken aback when she found out she was not only nominated but had been chosen for the Medal.
“Volunteering is a way for me to give back to the community and the province. I have lived in Saskatchewan my whole life. I have deep roots here and I believe that giving back to the communities that help us raise our families and support us in our work and family lives is really important,” said Benson.
One of Lorna’s big volunteering tasks is as the coordinator for the first responders.
The R.M of Canwood will be a collection site on June 15, July 13 and August 24.
With widespread water quality concerns, the Ministry of Agriculture’s livestock and feed extension specialists are working to make water testing more accessible to livestock producers in Saskatchewan. Submit your livestock water samples to the location and on the dates listed below. You can also submit samples anytime, at your local regional or SCIC office. *See attached PDF for collection instructions.
A livestock and feed extension specialist will contact you to review the results.
