Firstly, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who made our Steak Night
such a success. Thanks to Cousin’s Hotel for supplying the food and
atmosphere and donating the T-shirts, hat and CD. To everyone who
bought supper tickets and raffle tickets. To our Volunteers, Tim and
Sheila Goddard, Jean Ager and Jason Choquer. The Community
support was great.
We hope to have the Tourist Information Station opened sometime in June. Hopefully we can establish
regular hours, e.g. daily 1 -5 pm. We are trying to get a grant to hire a student but nothing is final yet.

We have received funding to install a bathroom. If you have some carpentry skills and time on your hands
we could use YOU. Don’t be shy, call Sandra 476-2587.

The museum will focus on the geological aspect of the area and we would also be happy for any assistance
getting this organized. Call Sandra 476-2587.

We will have crafts available for sale again this year. As there is no commission charged to the vendors we
require payment in the form of volunteer hours.

Time is running out to get your favorite recipe to us. We don’t like to nag, BUT! Please email
it to Dorothy Bloom c/o or leave with any Rockglen & District Tourism
committee member.

Whether you live in or around the Rockglen area or did so at one time, we would like to have
your recipe in our cookbook. Please include your name, address and phone number.

Remember to visit our website. Tell you family and friends. or

Did you sign our Guest Book? See who else has signed in. Maybe it is someone you know.

In the last newsletter we told you about the Spring photo contest. We have expanded it to
Summer as well. Photos should be tourism related. Please drop them off at the downtown
Library or mail to Box 134, Rockglen, SK, S0H 3R0. They will be displayed at the library and
some will be put on the website.

Mark June 9th on your calendars. We will be holding a public meeting discussing the potential of
tourism in the district. There will be someone speaking from the Rockglen Business Loans Co-
operative and the Young Entrepreneurs. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. Watch for posters and an
update in the May Newsletter.

The purpose of the Rockglen and District Tourism committee is to encourage tourism in Rockglen and the surrounding area in a way
that will attract visitors, lengthen their stay, improve the economic development of the community and provide diversified
employment opportunities for the area residents.

May has been proclaimed "Missing Children's Month" and May 25th has been designated
"Missing Children's Day" both nationally and provincially.

Child Find Saskatchewan Inc., the provincial arm of Child Find Canada, is a registered
charitable organization. Our purpose is to aid in the location of missing and abducted
children with the objective of re-uniting the children with their lawful parents or
guardians. Our goals include promoting public awareness and providing educational
programs for both children and adults. It is our intent to ensure the broadest recognition
possible is given to the significance of the "Green Ribbon" as well as increase public
awareness on the issue of missing children in Canada. You can play a vital role in helping
to raise awareness.

For the month of May, there will be four locations in Rockglen where the Green Ribbon of
Hope Boxes will be distributed.

We hope you will wear a green ribbon and show your support of this very worthwhile

The campaign will begin on May 1st and continue throughout the month.

A missing child is everyone's responsibility and Child Find Saskatchewan Inc. earnestly
solicits your valued support in this national campaign.

While it may seem strange to already be talking about a student trip that is ten months away the Grade
Nine students and parents attended a meeting this week to begin preliminary plans. While the many
details of the trip will not be decided upon until next fall, the decision was made to have a fund-raising
format similar to last year. This involves parents and students working together on several large fund-
raisers such as bottle drives, ski-doo derby and chocolate sales with the remainder of the money being
the responsibility of each individual student.

One such private initiative will be an Odd Job Squad. A number of students have signed up and are
willing to get their hand dirty doing spring clean-ups, etc. If you have a job that would require only a
few workers, please get in touch with Cindy Tessier (642-5824) or Gayle Knoss (476-2682) and they
will make the necessary arrangements.
