Sometimes, things just fall into place - it’s almost like they were meant to be.

That’s the feeling you get when you walk into the new home of Prairie Collective Co. on the corner of Main Street and Assiniboine in Russell.

The stately old building with its grand entrance and beautiful front façade, was the first ‘official’ post office in Russell with grand high ceilings and an ambience that is perfectly conducive to the antique furnishings that Jeremy and Jessica Jamieson lovingly restore and sell out of the new building.

Bringing cancer care closer to home

Cancer is a disease that has impacted everyone and every year there are many fundraisers that are held for cancer research and treatment.

The family of the late Glen Kendrick has been dedicated to raising funds for Expanding Community Cancer Care in Russell for quite some time and they are putting on another fundraiser this year.

“We’re not exactly sure how many years we’ve been fundraising for cancer, but the first time we did it as a family team, was as Team Kendrick in the Relay For Life in 2008, in Roblin,” said Betty Dayson. “At that time, the money we raised went to CancerCare Manitoba.

We tried to do something every two years and then in 2012, we did a walk and the money we raised went to the Russell Chemo Unit. This was around the same time that plans were being discussed to renovate and expand the Russell Chemo Unit.

The weather was perfect for a walk with your best friend - and their friends. On the last Saturday in May, hundreds of people from across the country met with their canine and human friends and set out on a bit of a trek for the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides. Here in Russell just around 20 people showed up at the dog park on the west side of town.

With the money still coming in (you have until the end of June to get your pledges in or make new pledges online) it’s hard to keep a grasp on the evergrowing total.

The Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides is a national charity that was created by the Lions of Canada. Its mission is to empower Canadians with disabilities to navigate their world with confidence and independence by providing a Dog Guide at no cost and supporting them in their journey together. Since 1983, Lions Foundation of Canada has been providing specially trained Dog Guides to men, women and children from coast to coast.

In addition to training Dog Guides for people who are blind or visually impaired, Dog Guides are also trained to meet the needs of Canadians with hearing, medical and physical disabilities, epilepsy, autism, diabetes and for professional agencies assisting people in traumatic situations. And they truly are life savers. All Dog Guides and required training, including transportation and accommodation, are provided at no cost to qualified applicants. Lions Foundation does not receive any government funding and relies on the support of fundraising events like the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides.

This past year the Lions held their 2021/2022 Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides both in-person and virtually. Thanks to the incredible support of volunteer walk organizers, participants, donors, and their title sponsor, Pet Valu, they were thrilled to announce they raised an impressive $1,017,626!
