Lions Melissa, Gemma, and Karen enjoying the forum.

They opened the Forum with the Saskatoon Natives Indians, it was a wonderful ceremony.

Then they presented the flags.

Saskatoon river with Saskatoon in the back ground.

Saskatoon has a berry they grow, so we traveled to the berry farm to have a taste, it is between a blue berry and a raspberry.

We visited an agricultural museum in Saskatoon, and we got the chance to see the farming equipment from the early 1900's, and yes the steam engine tractor still runs perfect unlike the wooden one Melissa picked out.

Operation Kids Sight at Loving

We had a warm welcome. They made a sign and hung it from the ceiling to welcome us.

We didn't do too bad for our first time out with the new camera system.

Not to brag but they made us lunch. We had Ceasar salad, rolls, tea, and dessert. Cherry cheese cake, jello cake, and homemade dijon mustard vinaigrette (the mustard was from France!). It was wonderful.
