2017 Remembrance Day Ceremony at the University of Saskatchewan

There will be a Remembrance Day Ceremony at the University of Saskatchewan on Saturday, November 11. We wanted to extend an invitation to the members of your community because we are located near your neighbourhood.

Event Details
Following the city-wide service at SaskTel Centre, there will be a wreath laying service at the Memorial Gates (near the College Drive entrance to Royal University Hospital) at 1:30 pm. A reception will follow at Louis’ Loft. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Help us get the word out!
We would appreciate you sharing this with people in your community. I have a package containing a poster and social media images available for use.

The Saskatoon Fire Department information sessions

The Saskatoon Fire Department strives to provide a four-minute traveling response time to all areas in the City of Saskatoon. Geographic modelling shows this level of service and safety will be possible to Sutherland and University area neighbourhoods when Fire Station No. 5 is relocated from 105 Street and Central Avenue to closer to the intersection of Preston Avenue and College Drive.
SFD will be hosting two public information sessions, for you and your residents to attend and learn more about this project.

Tuesday, November 7
Sutherland School, Library
211 – 111th Street
6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Thursday, November 9
Saskatoon Field House, Meeting Room #3
2020 College Drive
6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

We would appreciate your assistance in spreading the word to the residents of your neighborhood, through whatever means and channels you have available to you. We will also promote the information sessions through mini-billboards in the area over the next couple of weeks as well.

The City will be sending out a news release about this at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 26. At that time, more information, including frequently asked questions and the history of Fire Station No. 5, will be available at www.saskatoon.ca/NewServiceModel.

If unable to attend, please send information requests to: fire-communityrelations@saskatoon.ca.

Citizen Scientist for the SMART Study from JSGS

>> Email from  Dr. Tarun Katapally, Assistant Professor of JSGS, U. of Regina

Hello all,

 I would personally like to invite you to become a Citizen Scientist for the SMART Study. This initiative has been funded by SHRF to not only understand active living patterns among Saskatchewan residents, but also to allow Citizen Scientists to map barriers and facilitators of active living using Smartphone camera and audio features. The study has a seasonality component and at the moment, we are recruiting Citizen Scientists for Spring. We will eventually use this data to inform policy and program interventions.

 As a Citizen Scientist all you have to do is download an App and use it for 8 days. The maximum time commitment is 30 minutes overall. I have attached here 10 easy steps to do that. You could also go to http://www.smartstudysask.com  to find out more and become Citizen Scientists.

 Finally, if possible, please encourage your friends and family to join the study and add us on twitter: @SMARTSTUDYSK and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SMARTSTUDYSASK/

 Please feel free to email me if you have any queries.
