Don Burnstick at Kikinahk Friendship Centre

“Laughter is the best medicine”It was a great afternoon for everyone who attended. Special thanks to the Lieutenant Governer Russ Mirasty and her Honour Donna Mirasty for bringing greetings and being in attendance. Thank you to Don for a great show. It was a delight to provide this entertainment to seniors in the community.

The special event attracted nearly 100 seniors from Air Ronge, La Ronge and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band. Woytowich noted he was impressed with the turnout, adding it was timely with the lifting of public health restrictions in February. Masking was required, however, along with temperature checks and signing in for contact tracing.

Everyone in attendance was also gifted with a $50 Lake Country Co-op gift card. Back in September, Lake Country held an orange button fundraiser in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, where customers could purchase a button for $2 with Co-op matching each donation. Half of the money raised went to Kikinahk and that paid for the gift cards.
