Eastend Arts Council appreciates support of Wallace Stegner House
On March 2nd the Wallace Stegner House, artists’ retreat in Eastend sustained serious water damage as a result of frozen pipes.
The response from our insurance agent and insurance company were outstanding.
Throughout the recovery, every person dealing with the repairs who crossed the threshold was unfailingly helpful, polite and most gratifyingly, interested in the Stegner House operation.
Over its 30 years of operation the Stegner House (www.stegnerhouse.ca) has welcomed more than 300 residents, writers, artists, dancers, sculptors, journalists, and a few scientists from around the world.
The House is an icon on the cultural map of Southwest Saskatchewan. Residents experience small agricultural town life and the space and peace to work on their projects. In return the resident gives a public presentation or reading which brings their diverse worlds to Eastenders.
Thanks to the professionalism and generosity of everyone involved in this recent emergency the house which was built in 1917 is ready for its second century.
Heartful thanks to all.
