The Canada Day celebrations in Elkhorn is a major community event that brings in people from all over Westman and eastern Saskatchewan.

Last year it did not happen because of the massive down pour of rain the night before, which lead to a great deal of flooding all over the area.
However, like farmers who always want to believe that next year will be better, the Elkhorn Canada Day Committee feels the same way.

Keeping with that attitude, Member of Parliament, Larry Maguire was at the Manitoba Antique Auto Museum to present a cheque to the Canada Day Committee to help pay for some of the event.

During the presentation, Maquire said, “Every grant from Heritage Canada that goes into the rural riding of Brandon- Souris for Canada Day celebrations is very much
appreciated. Canada Day celebrations are seen in the Brandon-Souris area as multicultural days with people from many countries, who are now Canadians coming together to celebrate
our great country of Canada.”
