Thursday, June 1, 2017 in Community, St. Paul's Hospital

​St. Paul's Hospital welcomed more than 650 children and families from the surrounding community at their 25th Annual Community Day celebrations on its front lawn on Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

As an independently owned, faith-based Hospital, St. Paul's Hospital delivers compassionate and holistic medical care in an atmosphere that is welcoming to all.

"We follow the example of our Hospital's founders – the Grey Nuns in welcoming community and family as part of our holistic healing mission," says Jean Morrison, President and CEO of St. Paul's Hospital. "This is a wonderful celebration that happens each year, bringing our community together as we work to achieve our vision for a community of health, hope and compassion for all."

Over 20 local organizations and businesses support this event. This year's festivities included local entertainers Kenni the Clown, Parab Poet, Princess Alexandra School Dancers and The Super Ron Show. Neighbouring businesses and service agencies also came together to entertain, sponsor activities like basketball and a bean bag toss, and provide goodie bags, lunch and mascots for the children. Face painting was offered by Saskatoon Community Youth Arts Programming (SCYAP). The Remai Modern Art Caravan was in attendance and there were highly popular tours of Saskatoon Police Services, MD Ambulance and Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services vehicles. 

Over 100 volunteers from St. Paul's Hospital and other sites within the Saskatoon Health Region, as well as high school students from Tommy Douglas Collegiate, the SPH Board and community sponsors come together to make this event happen.

Over 2,500 hot dogs, buns and popsicles were ordered in preparation for the event. All the food, including hot dogs, apples, oranges, bottled water and popsicles, was donated by generous sponsors.

Student volunteers from Tommy Douglas Collegiate helped for the whole event.
