Annual General Meeting
The Lakeland District for Sport, Culture and Recreation held their Annual General Meeting on the 16th of June. Representatives from the Board of Directors, SaskSport, SaskCulture, SPRA, and some LDSCR communities were all present. Lyle Campbell, Executive Director, gave a summary of the successes of the past year of operations:
"With the development of a new 3 year strategic plan, the Board of Directors provided the LDSCR staff with the guidance and direction to continue down the path of community development and capacity building for sport, culture and recreation. We continue to build upon the successes of previous years and we are now beginning to see the positive impact that we are having within the District..."
The annual report was presented as well which highlighted the various areas of success and outcomes that were achieved in areas such as Leadership Development and Capacity Building, Access and Participation, and many more. There were also glowing reports from the three globals presented that outlined the model for success that LDSCR has become.
Elections were held for the Board of Directors, and we are pleased to congratulate Andrew Crowe, Cheryl Bauer-Hyde, Carla Hipkins, and Erin Standish on being re-elected to our Board. The Board membership consists of:

We are looking forward to another great year of growth and partnerships to be able to best serve our communities.

June is Recreation and Parks Month!
The month of June has come and gone, and all throughout it there were some great events held across the District. To all of the communities and organizations that helped make these events a reality, thank you! Whether it was through donations of manpower, funding, or supplies, your support helped make these events the great success that they were.
Let's not forget about everyone that came out to the events though, you're the whole reason the events get held in the first place! Seeing all of you out in the community enjoying the day, taking in the sights and maybe sharing a laugh or two confirms something very important to us at Lakeland District: the value of Sport, Culture and Recreation!
Just because June has come to a close doesn't mean the fun has to stop, we encourage you all to get out and do something you want to do this summer while you can! Summer is only here for so long, so lets make it a good one!
