SMALL TOWN, BIG PRIDE
Wakaw is celebrating Linden Vey as he journeys to the Olympics!
In early January, Wakaw’s Linden Vey was the only Saskatchewan hockey player named to Team Canada’s Men’s Olympic Squad. Town of Wakaw Mayor and Council quickly gave direction that this is a time for our population of 1000 to celebrate our pride for Linden. Various initiatives have been organized to recognize Vey’s journey to the Olympics:
1. VEY DAY IN WAKAW – February 14, 2018. Mayor Steve Skoworodko declared February 14, the day before Team Canada hits the ice, Vey Day in Wakaw. Wakaw will be wearing red in support of Linden, with many sporting custom Vey 91 shirts.
2. MAKE YOUR MARK/FOLLOW THE FLAG From January 27- February 10 a large Canada flag is making its rounds. The goal? To have as many people sign it with well wishes for Linden. The Flag will then travel to Pyeongchang with Linden’s family and be delivered to #91 himself.
3. GO LINDEN WINDOW WARS For the duration of the Olympic Games local businesses and institutions will decorate their windows, facades, storefronts, entrances or outbuildings to show support for Linden and Team Canada. To kick start the patriotism and pride, the town has purchased Flags for each business. An adjudication group representing all ages will go around on Vey Dey to choose the top three displays.
4. JAMMIE SELFIES For Canada’s first game on February 15 at 6 am, the town will be spearheading a social media campaign with the hashtag #SmallTownBigPride. Alarms across the community are set to go off as residents rise to watch game one on an early Wednesday morning.
5. VIEWING PARTY: An all ages viewing party is planned for February 16 at 9pm in the Wakaw Rec Centre. Anticipate a full house and screaming fans as Canada takes on the Czech Republic. Free admission, volunteer run and all proceeds from food and bar sales will go to Wakaw Minor Hockey as per Linden’s direction.

The Town would like to inform our residents as to the procedures surrounding the Town Siren. The siren operates differently based on specific community needs.
EMO ( Emergency Measures Organization)
Emergency personnel will set off and continuously run the Siren in the case of an EMO Situation in order to alert the general public to an impending emergency situation. Examples of EMO events include Severe & Dangerous Weather, Mass Casualty Situations, Public Threat, Evacuation Orders, etc. In the event of an EMO situation, the general public is encouraged to check local radio stations, Environment Canada communication, Wakaw Community & Recreation Facebook Page or this website. https://wakaw.ca
Our Firefighters have a communication system that reaches them immediately and directly when they are needed. If, for any reason, not enough volunteers respond initially the siren will run one round at a time to call for more volunteers. It will repeat until enough volunteers have responded to the call.
At this time we would like to introduce our new EMO Coordinator, Justin Smart. Justin can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
