SK Senior’s Mechanism Century Club Celebrates 2nd Event
Canada’s symbol of air force excellence, the Snowbirds aerial demonstration team, flew its acceptance show at 15 Wing Moose Jaw under cold, cloudy April skies. Theme for the new team with the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron is a Tradition of Excellence, in the 50th year since the Golden Centennaires began the awesome aerial demonstration flights for Canada’s 100th birthday celebrations. The team flew numerous solo and team patterns with one flight by two CT-114 Tutors, a tribute to the Battle of Vimy. The two Tutor jet craft inflight symbolized the two towers of the Vimy Memorial in France. Along with a pattern for Canada’s 150th birthday the team flew one for all members of the military. Snowbirds commander is Lt.-Col. Brad Wintrup of North York, Ont. Team lead is Major Patrick Gobeil of La Baie, Quebec. A Tutor aircraft with the Canada 150 paint scheme will be featured at some locations for the team’s appearances this year. The show schedule started three days after the acceptance show and ends in mid-October in California and Idaho. Moose Jaw residents can view the Snowbirds at Sidewalk Days in July.

West Park Crossing hosted the event themed, ‘A Step Back in Time’, celebrating all things memorable from the 1920’s and 30’s. The afternoon began with residents and guests donning feathers, boas, hats and tommy guns to pose for pictures in the photo booth. A memorable journey back in time was then taken via a piano duet by Judy Piche and Debbie Richards followed by a tea party, compliments of Lisa Oram from Simplicitea and nostalgic treats prepared by the talented cooks. Many guests even rose to the challenge of ‘Spam’ on Ritz crackers which were both quite popular during the day. Four new members registered with the Century Club which is dedicated to connecting and encouraging people who are 90+ years old and share a desire to remain active.
