MOOSE JAW — The Rotary Club of Moose Jaw Wakamow is renowned for its commitment to community engagement, and as a non-profit organization, the club relies on regular fundraising initiatives to provide funding for its projects.

To help meet these financial requirements, the club is looking to start a new pancake breakfast project with a booth at the weekly Wakamow Farmer’s Market.

The Rotary Club’s new breakfast fundraiser is scheduled to begin on Saturday, July 6, and will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“This summer, we’re going to be hosting breakfasts at the Wakamow Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning from July to August,” Rotary Club member Dave Bowler confirmed.

“It’s going to be something new,” he said. “We are looking forward to selling pancakes and bacon to anyone who is there.”

Bowler said there isn’t an established price per plate at this point, but he said the club will “keep the price reasonable.”

Similar fundraising projects by the Rotary Club enable its members to make improvements throughout the community, including the recent restoration on Tourism Moose Jaw’s gazebo, and the club has performed numerous trail and other infrastructure maintenance tasks throughout the Wakamow Valley in the past.

The Rotary Club of Moose Jaw Wakamow and the Wakamow Farmer’s Market aren’t necessarily working together as partners, but Bowler said the Rotary Club routinely operates within the Wakamow Valley area and he’s pleased with the overlap.

“We’re the Wakamow Club,” he said. “So, the fact that (the market’s) in Wakamow is nice. “We’re really looking forward to that.”

The Wakamow Farmer’s Market runs every Saturday from May to September between the hours of 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the event is held “come rain or shine,” according to event organizers.

The market takes place at the Wakamow Oval, which is adjacent to the Kiwanis River Park Pavilion & Lodge and can be found by following River Drive into the Wakamow Valley.

To contact the market’s organizers, the number to call is 306-692-2717. The Wakamow Farmer’s Market also maintains a Facebook page with regular updates at ‘Wakamow Farmers Market.’
