This is the 50th anniversary year of The Society for the Involvement of Good Neighbours (SIGN). Since 1969, it has provided valuable help and social services to residents of Yorkton and east-central Saskatchewan.
To celebrate the occasion, a banquet was held May 10, 2019 at St. Mary's Cultural Centre in Yorkton, attended by 365 people -- past and present staff, board members, and both business and individual supporters in the communities.
Former executive directors Clay Serby and Tom Seeley, and current executive director Andrew Sedley spoke about their work with SIGN, and the event was an opportunity for many to reconnect, or connect for the first time.
Among those present was Father Len Ratushniak, now living in Winnipeg, who was one of the original board members of SIGN in 1969 when he was at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church. A message was read from Rev. Ray Glen of Edmonton, another original board member, who could not attend.
Below are photo galleries of the dinner, and the board/staff reunion which was held the next day at the Yorkton Wildlife Federation clubhouse at York Lake.
