Dear Spinnel-Anna relatives:
We are pleased to inform you that the 2010 Spinnel-Anna Reunion will be held in Melfort and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The dates are tentative at this time but the festivities will commence around the 3rd or 4th week in July, 2010.
Our main planning committee and a couple of subcommittees have been formed and we will begin in earnest to plan activities and fund raising projects in the New Year.
Most of the activities will be held in Melfort because the majority of host families live in that area, but we also intend to have some activities in Saskatoon. The population of Melfort is 5,000. Saskatoon is a beautiful city with a population of over 200,000.
Saskatoon is twinned with Umeå, so we will attempt to arrange a cultural event of some sort during your visit to our city. Some of the activities in Saskatoon may include: visits to Forest Park and Zoo or the Umeå Park, the Barn Playhouse, Wanuskewin (Indian heritage), a wild west outing, shopping; and in Melfort: picnic with games and family talent, SK River boat outing, tour of the Fort-a-la-Corne Diamond Mine.
We feel very privileged to be able to host the next Spinnel-Anna Reunion and it is with pleasure that we welcome our Swedish, American and Canadian cousins to Melfort and Saskatoon in 2010.
Best Wishes, And Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year
From Dale Malmgren (Chairman) and the 2010 Spinnel-Anna Committee.
