The Moose Jaw River Valley serves as a key part of local heritage, dating back to the pre settlement era. 

Organizers of the River Valley Community are inviting you to acknowledge the history of the region this Sunday, in Churchill Park. 

The presentation will begin at 2:00pm, and a plaque unveiling will also take place. The plaques will be mounted on a boulder that will be placed near the river, and will honour the valley’s legacy, as well as those who have contributed to its past, present, and future. 

“{The plaques} summarize the history and role of the valley,” said organizer, Don Mitchell. “It’s just a summary though, so we’re going to have some presentations and hopefully can get the word out to the community, and everyone involved, to come celebrate the heritage.” 

Evans Florist, the Churchill Park Greenhouse Co-op, and the Wakamow Community Garden will also get special recognition for their contribution. 

The ceremony will occur near the gazebo on the southside of Churchill Park, near the riverbank. Parking is available on the east and west sides of the park, and south of Wellesly Street. Members of the public and former greenhouse or market garden staff are encouraged to attend as well. 

The event is estimated to last half an hour.
