Wilkie's Annual Farmer's Day was held this past weekend.

Steven Lutsch, Wilkie's Recreation Director, explained what the weekend is all about, "Farmer's Day is an event we have annually. It's a celebration in town that caters to youth and family, as well as a dance."

Awards are handed out to a few individuals each year. Lutsch said they received a number of nominations but only had a few awards to give out, "We put out an advertisement around town to submit a letter of a nominee that's deserving an award. The rec board decides who's best qualified to receive the award."

The Wilkie Elks held their Snowmobile Rally in conjunction with Saturday's events. There was also snowman building, tobogganing and sleigh rides at the Regional Park for those brave enough to face the cold.

The Farmer's Day events wrapped up with a senior hockey game and dance at the SaskCan Community Hall.

Wilkie Outlaws were able to defeat the Hillmond Hitmen in game one of their provincial series. Final score was 8 - 3.

"We try to change things up, it's not like a lot of it's traditional events and program," Lutsch said they had a few new and old events scheduled this year, "We had a sleigh ride this year, that hasn't done in the past. We follow a template but we try to put new activities together."
