Come on Saskatchewan – Vote for Pense – Only 3 hours left to vote.

Sat, 15 Aug by Pauline Relkey

Let’s help one of our small towns in Saskatchewan win the Kraft Hockeyville prize.

HISTORY – Over the past 13 years, Kraft Hockeyville has helped to upgrade arenas from coast to coast, but it’s you, your teams, your families, and your communities that have kept the spirit and passion for hockey alive.  Take a look at past years’ winners and see what it takes to become Kraft Hockeyville.

Here is the link https://www.krafthockeyville.ca/?locale=en_CA#/landing.

Kraft kicks things off each year in January when we can nominate and rally behind our community to show the rest of Canada our passion for the game! Their panel of judges read each story, worth 80% of the community’s total score and tally up the rally points, worth 20%, to determine the Top 4. The finalists will then go head to head in one round of voting to determine who will be crowned the next Kraft Hockeyville.

Grand Prize package includes:
• $250,000 towards upgrades to the Grand Prize winning Arena as nominated in the Story Submission;
• The opportunity to host an NHL® Pre-Season hockey game (the “Game”) that will be played in the Grand Prize winning Arena (or an Alternative Arena, as defined below, if necessary) on a date to be chosen by Sponsor, the NHL, and NHLPA in their sole and absolute discretion (currently anticipated to be in the fall of 2021, prior to the start of the 2021-2022 NHL season) (See Arena Requirements, as defined below); and • The “Kraft Hockeyville Canada 2020” title and trophy for one (1) year. Total ARV of Grand Prize: $650,000 (CAD). Winner announced later today.

So Pense, Sk made it to the top 4.

KRAFT HOCKEYVILLE 2020 CANADA

Summer time home checklist

Wed, 05 Aug by Pauline Relkey

Half of 2020 is in the past and with this Covid thing, we are hoping that the second half goes way better than the first half.

We’re in the midst of summer. Hopefully with many more weeks of summer to come, we hope that the summer rays keep streaming down on us.  

This is an interesting fact – There’s some evidence that people typically drive safer in problematic conditions, such as rain, snow, and fog, while more car crashes occur on bright sunny days with clear conditions. Following this logic on the road and applying it to the home, it’s important to not overlook or underestimate some of the challenges that present themselves in summer. Unlike many summer drivers, you don’t want to let your guard down on a seemingly innocent time.

Be aware of insects. We all know that mosquitoes are a common summertime nuisance, however some areas across the country will experience the return of cicadas and other types of bugs. For your home, make sure all entry points are secured so you don’t have any unwanted visitors from the great outdoors – and it will help you with your home efficiency!

Check that your HVAC and furnace are working properly, and all the filters are up to date. Pleasant room temperatures are often not on people’s minds and can be taken for granted in the summer unless a problem occurs. And a reminder for those with a deck or patio: make sure the structure is stable and well maintained. It’ll be getting a lot of use now!

Here are your top to-dos for summer:

● Take care of any insect problems you may have.

● Seal up your home.

● Check outdoor faucets for leaks. We don’t need that water bill any higher!

● Have your roof inspected.

● Inspect and possibly change out HVAC filters.

● Clean and repair deck or patio as needed.

● Check water softener; add salt if needed.

● Test garage door auto-reverse feature. Need to keep the little ones safe.

● Clean kitchen garburator. Just don’t stick your hand in it while it’s running!

● Clean range hood filters.

● Inspect your fire extinguisher(s). Are they expired?

Have any other suggestions or questions? Call, text or email me — I’m always happy to help homeowners in our community.
