Moosomin’s first Mock Wedding
Congratulations to our happy couples—Jody Boutin/Sherri Toms and Jory Schwean/Carly Beutler.
The wedding itself will be held on Saturday, June 17 at the Conexus Convention Centre with a pre-wedding social held at the Nutrien Sportsplex deck. Our dueling Ministers will be Reverend McDonald and Mr. Mel Konkel with the Master of Ceremonies being the one and only Murray Gray.
A pre-social will be held at the Nutrien Sportsplex deck and then closing out the night will be our summer kickoff bash as we have the fantastic Blu Beach Band booked in, and they are pumped!
Tickets will be available at the Rec Office for just $20. This will be the best bang for your buck you will ever get!
Keep in mind that all proceeds from the event go towards the Virtual Trophy Case at the MS Arena.
Blu Beach Band Running back to Moosomin!
Is there a better way to kick off the summer than a night out with the amazing Blu Beach Band!
The band plays live at the Conexus Convention Centre June 17 as part of our Mock Wedding event.
Tickets are just $20 (which gets you an afternoon cocktail on the Nutrien Sportsplex Deck). For tickets please phone 435-3622 or email Amber at email@example.com

Moosomin Parks and Rec Need Your Help!
Moosomin Parks and Recreation have undertaken a four month project in which we are looking to uncover pictures, articles, materials, trophies etc. involving our amazing history with rinks and hockey dating back to the 1880s. If you have any items you might think would be helpful to us we would love to hear from you.
Ultimately our intent is to apply for Provincial Heritage Status at the MS Arena/Bradley Park in recognition of the first two indoor rinks in Western Canada (1885). Presently the site is a Municipal Heritage Site but to be able to claim Provincial Status would be a game changer for us.
Communities in Bloom
We are so excited to return to the Communities in Bloom contest offered through the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association. Making this year even more exciting will be the fact for the first time we will be making a regional entry comprised of the Town of Moosomin, Moosomin Regional Park, and Moosomin Pipestone Hills Golf Club. The three along with our Chamber of Commerce will comprise an Executive Planning Committee, however we will have our secondary planning committee for the Town of Moosomin. I am sure both the Regional Park and Pipestone Hills Golf Club will also welcome members to their secondary committee.
If you are interested in helping with one of the three please contact the appropriate individual below:
Town of Moosomin Planning Committee:
Mike Schwean at email@example.com
Moosomin Regional Park:
Karen Hebert at firstname.lastname@example.org
Moosomin Pipestone Hills Golf Club:
Jason Miller at JMiller@rockymtn.com
With regards to timelines the contest opens in February. We expect to use March and April making
plans and then May and June getting our town, park and golf course looking amazing! Evaluators arrive in June/July where they score our entry and hopefully we find our way going to Nationals in 2024.
Regardless it is a wonderful way to take pride in our area showing the rest of Saskatchewan we are not only a wonderful area to live but a beautiful one as well!
