A few years ago, stay at home moms made up a large part of our volunteer pool. Now, many households need two incomes to function. Add to the mix that being mobile families with at least two vehicles, many households have many children involved in many different activities, often in more than one community--all requiring volunteers.

I am sitting in a beautiful room in Saskatoon in the Bezz--It is a large forum with more than 100 people representing 32 communities.

I love the Oxbow Herald; it is such a well done local paper. In just this issue alone, (Monday, February 6, 2012) there are features about the Southeast Starletts, a synchonized skating team, a history page going back 100 years, a story about a local lottery winner, and tons (or should I say tonnes?) of photos about the puppet show held at the Expressway Family Centre, a feature on the Lightning Project, and articles of regional interest, I could go on. We are very lucky to have such a thing... More...
