Next week’s paper preview

Well … first of all, a warning that there is a sad mistake on the front page of the June 23 Unity Wilkie Press-Herald. After 105 years, Landis School closes its doors at the end of this month, never again to hear the laughter and chatter of children echoing down the halls. ¬†Unfortunately the photos of the current staff and students, and the compilation of memories from former students, is headlined Luseland Memories. ¬†Our apologies to staff and students of the Landis and the Luseland schools!

Despite, the error in the headline, the Landis School memories are well worth reading! Along with those, enjoy:

  • a profile on Unity United Church minister Louise Robson, who is retiring after 20 years as an ordained minister;
  • a look at this year’s Unity Minor Ball softball teams;
  • coverage of the Sask Seniors Assoc. rally held in Unity May 22;
  • a report on the Luseland pool opening.

The June 23 issue is also the annual “grad issue” – look to see which kids you know are already graduating from high school! In addition, students from all three area high schools went to Battleford June 12 to be recognized at the Living Sky School Division Student Hall of Fame banquet and we have listings of the award winners.
