As a grant recipient, St Matthew Anglican Church, Regina was thrilled to host the closing evening reception with about 100 people from across the province in attendance. Featured projects and cheques were presented by the SHF Board Chair, Neil Russell and Manager, Shari Hildred. The projects recognized were the Grand Theatre and Community Arts Centre, Indian Head, and The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Saskatoon. Mark Docherty, MLA for Regina Coronation Park and Speaker of the House brought greetings on behalf of the Minister and the government. Ingrid Cazakoff, CEO spoke on behalf of Heritage Saskatchewan.
SHF has been a proud supporter of the Heritage Fairs since 2004. Youth Heritage Fairs award winners, Hunter Nichols, a grade 6 student from Moose Jaw and Anya Shyian, a grade 9 student from White City both spoke eloquently on their projects and the positive impact on their lives. This was an opportunity to show case the heritage church restoration work underway and Mae Boa spoke on behalf of St. Matthew. The ACW coordinated and catered the event for the Foundation.
