We have had to move from our home at the Field House for the summer months because of renovations to the facility.

You can find us at the Community Health Centre in Market Mall until the Field House reopens in September.

Our summer hours are 9:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.

SAME GREAT SERVICE!

In addition to the new office, our staff will still be available by phone and email, as always.

Have a wonderful summer

Regina Pilot Project is coming to an end …

One of our goals is to bring the Globe Walk to communities across Saskatchewan.  The first, outside of the Saskatoon area, was Regina.

The Regina Globe Walk  Pilot Program is coming to an end.  Seven teams have been counting kilometres in May and June.  Check back here for final results.

Thanks to all the Regina Captains and their team members for their work on the test run.  Special thanks to Alice, who coordinated the event.

Regina is holding a Celebration Luncheon on June 24th.  For more information on the luncheon or on plans for a Regina Globe Walk 2020, please contact Cynthia at:  cynthia@scoa.ca.

Good Job

A Turning Point in History … D-Day

Canada_JunoBeach_1_RCNCOMMANDO

 

 

Take a few moments today to think of the thousands of young men who took part in the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944 (75 years ago today).  Let’s not forget the members of Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service, known as Wrens, who did covert work.  They maintained a 24/7 signal from which ships and planes could navigate without making radio or voice contact — technology that had proved crucial to the success of D-Day.

Canada’s impressive efforts in the Second World War remain a point of great national pride, even many decades later. The brave Canadians who came ashore on D-Day and saw action in the Battle of Normandy were among the more than one million men and women from our country who served in the cause of peace and freedom during the conflict. Sadly, over 45,000 of them would lose their lives. (Veterans Affairs Canada)

Total Allied casualties on D-Day reached more than 10,000, including 1,074 Canadians, of whom 359 were killed.

There is a reason they are called “The Greatest Generation”.  We owe them a great deal and we should never forget.
