Salvation Army to celebrate 100 years in Weyburn

Jul 02

Not only will the City of Weyburn celebrate its 100th birthday this year, the Salvation Army Corps is also celebrating 100 years in Weyburn. To commemorate their centennial year, Lieutenants Mike and Melissa Mailman of the Salvation Army will be hosting a block party for the entire community on June 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.   "We're doing the block party because it's our 100th year," said Melissa Mailman, "and it's also Weyburn's Centennial, which is very cool."   The party will take place on Fourth Street between Coteau Avenue and Souris Avenue. There will, however, be space off of Souris Avenue for cars to enter the parking lot on the west side of Fourth Street.   "I spoke with Fire Chief Steve," said Mailman. "Not only are they bringing the fire truck but they're bringing the training trailer for the public to explore!"   "All the rescue vehicles are going to be there," she said. "The police cruiser will be here and their Razer will be here."   She noted that the ambulances will also be in attendance and the Salvation Army Community Response Vehicle will be coming down from Regina for the public to explore.   "It's what we drove around in during the flood, when we were handing out sandwiches and doing meals and that kind of thing," said Mailman.   Throughout the day, there will also be a trade show with approximately 30 vendors taking place in the basement of the Salvation Army church building.   The Thrift Store will be having a Sidewalk Sale that day as well.
