What once was Kenosee Lake
August 13, 2009
Images by: R. W. Shire
Kenosee Lake, Moose Mountain Provincial Park:
For many who grew up in South Eastern Saskatchewan, Kenosee Lake was the centre of the universe. Outstanding golf course, great dance bands, swimming, fishing camping and a great beach to hang out but some sort of geological accident has made the lake just a fraction of what it once was and mostly we just have the memories.

Happenings In Tisdale:

The Greenwater report
August 13, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Souris, Manitoba:
Since Ensign did not post last week we get a Greenwater report two days in a row. This report takes us across the province to Kennedy then on into Manitoba to Souris and then to Winnipeg. Besides the pictures and story most of the place names have links that allow you to check out the details of the Crawford's adventures.
The Greenwater report
August 12, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Red Deer Alberta:
This report is last week's report which we did not post as we at Ensign were taking a holiday of our own. The Crawfords tell us about visiting a woolen mill in Carstairs and Ellis' Bird farm near Red Deer. He also clears up the images in the week before's report of a Waco byplane.
House number ten standing
July 31, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This project got underway May 22nd with the destruction and removal of an old house as the lot was cleared for a new dwelling. Shortly after the project got underway there was a change of house plans that lasted close to a month. Now the walls and garage of the new house are standing across the street from the RCMP detachment.
Waldron celebrates centennial
July 28, 2009
by: R. W. Shire
Saskatchewan has an enormously rich heritage despite the rural depopulation in recent decades Saskatchewan people where ever they are appreciate their roots and we are proud to help the East-central community of Waldron, near Melville celebrate its centennial with this outstanding set of 49 pictures.
The Greenwater report
July 27, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Big Valley, Alberta:
A visit to Archerwill then off to Cutknife then to Alberta with stops in Wetaskiwin, Wainwright, then to southern Alberta with a train ride from Stettler to Big Valley. Some great pictures to go with this week's report.
So, what about a deck design
July 23, 2009
by: Timothy and Judy Shire
For about four months of every Tisdale year we can enjoy the outdoor experience and a patio or deck make a perfect addition to every home and yard. The issue is, what is the best design for a deck? The answer is in these pictures of an outstanding example of how to skip the worry and trouble of complex design and construction and get the most out of your outdoor living space.
Eckart family celebrates a 99th birthday
July 22, 2009
by: Timothy and Judy Shire
Harvey, North Dakota:
In a world that seems to be changing even as we text on our cell phones it is important to recognise the importance of family and the part our families play in determining our self awareness and understanding our origins. This story is not about a Tisdale family but a Saskatchewan family from the Maple Creek area that traces its origins back to North Dakota, South Dakota, near Odessa in the Ukraine and indeed back to Germany. On July 5th we celebrated with the Eckart family as Louise Eckart marked her 99th birthday.
House 6 arrives
July 21, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
This project began on April 23rd with excavation started that day and susequently a foam form concrete basement was created but it was not until today that the house was moved into town. As few as two or three houses migrate to Tisdale each year. One of those that moved here last year was moved because contractors were unavailable to build a new house.
"One step"
July 20, 2009
by: Timothy W. Shire
Though history records the actual first step on the moon was forty years ago today for those of us caught up in the event it really had been going on all week long and the actually event of astronauts on the moons surface was just part of a remarkable achievement by NASA scientists and the determination by the US government to see through such an expensive project.
The Greenwater report
July 20, 2009
by: Gerald Crawford
Greenwater Lake Provincial Park:
In this report we get and explanation about last week's missing report and some insight into the strategy of roaming around in a motorhome each summer. The Crawfords attend a Perigord celebration for the Maquette family and tell us about some new lots that are available across the highway from Greenwater Park.
