Indian Head, Saskatchewan - Sense of Place

Indian Head is one of four communities selected for Main Street Saskatchewan demonstration projects. Here are a few picks from the August 19 announcement on Grand Avenue.

The announcement coincided with Customer Appreciation Day, an opportunity for merchants to take over the town's sidewalks with food stands, flower pots, tables and chairs to create an attractive venue on that special day.

This sketch of Indian Head's downtown viewshed provided an attractive backdrop for local media. Global and CTV came out from Regina for the occasion. The Leader-Post published this article.

Copies of the Indian Head submission to the Main Street program were available for consultation.

Heritage Branch representatives exchanged with community stakeholders. Citizens, community leaders, current and future partners in the four selected demonstration communities all hope their efforts will make a difference in fostering the kind of revitalization that will inspire other towns to embark on similar projects.

The Minister of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sports, Bill Hutchinson, an architect by trade, was obviously pleased to attend this significant event for the Town and for all those who believe in the economic, social and environmental benefits that can be generated from investing in a community's sense of place.

A couple of long time Indian Head residents were invited to say a few words about what living in Indian Head means to them.
