Hope Honour and Heroes 3rd Annual Mental Health Walk will take place on Saturday, May 5

 

The third “Hope, Honour, and Heroes” Annual Mental Health Walk will take place on Saturday, May 5th at Macdonald School in Stockholm. This year the event has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association, with proceeds going to the CMHA Regina Branch as well as Macdonald School’s Mental Health Initiatives.

Mental illness is no joke, and it is far more prevalent than society likes to admit. According to the event’s website, “Mental Illnesses are surprisingly common in children and youth. Unfortunately, only one in five kids and teens in Canada who need mental health treatment can get it. There are many reasons for this. Parents and caregivers can have mixed feelings about getting their children help for their mental illness. They may worry about being blamed for their child’s change in behaviour, or they worry about what treatments may be tried. Mental illnesses can be frightening, and many people worry what others will think if they talk about their experiences. The good news is that mental illnesses can be treated successfully, and early treatment can help reduce the impact of a mental illness on your child’s life.”

EHS Football Field and Track Upgrade Project

NOTE:- Article revised because original press release from GSSD did not mention the timescale of the Mosaic donation, and it was easy to misinterpret that the donation had only just been made when it was in fact made last year.

 

GSSD has announced the Football Field & Track Upgrade Project at EHS, and donations are now being sought from both corporate entities and individuals.   Below are excerpts from an official information release, and the full PDF documents may be accessed at the bottom of this page.

The Esterhazy football field and track has been in desperate need of upgrades for years and lacks proper drainage making it difficult to use much of the time. Esterhazy is the hub of our junior and senior football program drawing students from Stockholm, Dubuc, Atwater, Langenburg, Churchbridge, Gerald, Yarbo, Spy Hill, and Tantallon. We also host an annual district track meet in Esterhazy for students from these communities as well.

We are very thankful for Mosaic’s $50,000 donation to get us started! This exciting project includes excavation of the existing field with proper grading, drainage, and compaction; and installation of a pop‐up sprinkler system. Materials required include top soil, grass seed, concrete, and shale. To date, the field has been professionally surveyed, specifications have been received, and we are in the process of inviting local tenders for a general contractor. This is estimated to be approximately $200,000; therefore, we are very grateful for any donations in the form of labour, materials, and/or money.

Major contributors will be recognized on signage located in a prominent location on the football field. We are grateful for any donations of any amount, and receipts will be provided for anything over $20. Cheques should be payable to Good Spirit School Division and note it is for the EHS Football Field and Track project. The first 50 who donate over $1000 get their choice of a game worn jersey or helmet from the Warriors as a keepsake.
