Kevin Kay, Wawota's new mayor, hosted a meet and greet last Saturday at the Wawota Village Inn.
Free coffee and mini donuts were served and Phil Reddekop supplied some guitar music. Kevin thanked the former mayor, Shawn Murray, for his service and the town men, Norm Oliver and Shaun Galger, for their hard work. Upon visiting other communities, he stated that Wawota is rated one of the best communities in southeast Saskatchewan.
He will continue to work with the RMs to build a strong municipal government. His priorities will be licensing town water wells, paving and maintaining roads, promoting development to create jobs and attract businesses and work on and acquiring an assisted living centre.
A thank you was given to Meredith Swanson, who formed a committee to bring displaced Ukrainians to Wawota. We now have five families living here.
The Wawota Public Library hosted a Family Literacy Day community potluck and game night on Jan. 27.
This event was held at the Wawota Drop In Centre. Several families attended and shared in food dishes from their countries of origin. Following the meal, games were enjoyed by the adults and children.
Mandy Rokochy travelled to Wakaw to visit with her sister Leah Bellefontaine and family. They went to Saskatoon to attend Malanka and watched Penny Bellefontaine dance with her Ukrainian dance group.
Visiting with Marie for several days last week was her daughter Shirley from Winnipeg.
Serena Kerr has moved to Saskatoon. We wish her well in her new home.
