A30-year tra­di­tion con­tin­ues this Sun­day when the In­no­va­tion Credit Union hosts their an­nual Pic­nic Inn the Park.

The af­ter­noon fam­ily event runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at River­side Park, with those in at­ten­dance treated to food at old-fash­ioned prices, stage en­ter­tain­ment, chil­dren’s games, along with a se­ries of dis­plays and booths. In recog­ni­tion of the an­nual com­mu­nity cel­e­bra­tion, which dates back to June 1981, this year’s Pic­nic fea­tures an 80s theme. In­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies at­tend­ing the af­ter­noon event are in­vited to wear 1980s at­tire, and cash prizes will be awarded for the in­di­vid­u­als with the big­gest 80s hair and the best over­all cos­tume. Peo­ple wish­ing to en­ter the con­test are asked to visit the con­test reg­is­tra­tion booth.

The event, hosted dur­ing the first Sun­day in June, will be re­lo­cated to the Stock­ade and Pal­liser Pavil­ion at Ki­netic Park in the event of poor weather. The South­west Cri­sis Ser­vices Duck Derby will launch at 4 p.m. on the Swift Cur­rent Creek. Pro­ceeds from the sale of Duck Derby tick­ets go to sup­port the op­er­a­tion of the 24 hour tele­phone cri­sis line which pro­vides in­for­ma­tion and sup­port to call­ers. This ser­vice is free of charge and call­ers in south­west Saskatchew­an can ac­cess it through the toll free phone num­ber 1-800-567-3334. The Swift Cur­rent Ru­ral De­tach­ment of the RCMP are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance in solv­ing a pair of un­solved crimes.

Some­time be­tween 7 p.m. on May 25 and 6:30 a.m. on May 26, three busi­nesses were bro­ken into in the town of Cabri. The busi­nesses were all lo­cated in the Cen­ter Street and 1st Street area. At each lo­ca­tion thieves broke the lock on the door with­out dam­ag­ing any other prop­erty. A heavy 500 pound beige safe was stolen from one of the busi­nesses.

Some­time be­tween the af­ter­noon hours of May 27 and the morn­ing of May 30, a Hyundai front end loader was van­dal­ized on the prop­erty of the Depart­ment of High­ways near Jen Mar Trailer Court in Swift Cur­rent. All of the win­dows in the unit were smashed out caus­ing ap­prox­i­mately $2,000 worth of dam­age.
