Editor's Note

Editor Joan Ritchie takes a look at all the amazing events happening in Moose Jaw

Congratulations to our Moose Jaw Warriors for their impressive win lately taking the WHL Eastern Conference title and now onto bigger ‘fish to fry’. Things are looking good for the team with their wins in this division with high hopes of making it to the final. By the look of it, Moose Jaw supporters are so proud of the team and their unprecedented performance this year, with lots of fans lining Moose Jaw Main Street on their send-off to Portland and also on their return this past Sunday. Go Warriors Go!

The Greek Nite, held on Saturday evening May 11, was a lovely gala evening highlighting Greek dancing and Greek food with lots of extras throughout the evening, including the infamous Greek plate smashing, a silent auction and live auction that was highly successful. The evening topped off with the band Wonderland playing music that almost all genres and ages recognized, offering an opportunity to kick-up heels on the dance floor. Tourism Moose Jaw worked above and beyond with their sponsors to put on another successful fundraiser and everyone had a great time.

Not to be outdone, Moose Jaw has lots still to come.    

Willy Winmar’s third birthday party hosted by WINMAR Property Restoration Specialists will be taking place this coming Saturday in Crescent Park and if you have never been, check it out. It will be a birthday bash for all ages to enjoy with minimal cost. As well, if you are hungry, there are lots of options with numerous food vendors on site. 

Congratulations to the Rotary Club for holding an exceptional District Conference this past weekend. After many years involved in Rotary myself in the past, I can attest to the good work the organization continues to do. As well, the network is a great place to meet others for a heart in helping the community and beyond, even internationally making a difference. The Snowbirds paid a nice tribute and welcome to the visiting conference members with a flyby in their spectacular fashion.

Car enthusiasts get your motors running and head out to the Next Gen Car Club season opener to be held on May 19th in Tatawa Park from noon to five. The lineup of competitions will be sure to rev your engines. 

Read all about it and much more in this edition of the Moose Jaw Express, Moose Jaw’s local independent newspaper that focuses on all the great things going on here and around the region. 

A posting on Reddit affirmed a number of reasons to make Saskatchewan home by the entity ‘Saskatchewon’ boasting on the pros to living here on the Saskatchewan prairies: 

“Among the cheapest cost of living of any region in Canada. Housing/rent prices are well below the national average. Better than average job market. There is a massive demand for skilled workers, especially in health care and in the skilled trades. Wages are typically higher than the Canadian average, with average household income often being neck and neck with BC and Ontario for the second highest in the country (behind Alberta). That's in spite of Saskatchewan typically being cheaper. Low population density means plenty of space. You aren't going to be dealing with large crowds or tons of traffic. I'm in a small city with just under 20,000 people, and I can literally get anywhere I need to in a 10 minute drive or less. Lots of recreation activities available if you are outdoorsy. Fishing and hunting are extremely popular. Most cities will have various cross country ski/kayak/snowmobile clubs. Plenty of campsites and hiking trails out there.”
