May 26 – Toys and Pastimes
Before the times of mass production and store-bought toys, many young people made their own fun from items found around the house. We will look at how people enjoyed playing and staying active during Saskatchewan’s settlement period and beyond. Reminisce and remember about a time when riding bicycles, shooting marbles and playing hopscotch were more popular than television and video games.
June 30 – The Great Depression
Participants will learn about some of the struggles and challenges faced by people in Saskatchewan during the Great Depression. How did we adapt and persevere while facing disaster after disaster? Join us to learn why the 1930s were one of the most pivotal times in our province’s history.
August 31 – Weather
There’s a saying in Saskatchewan that goes, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes!” With our four-season climate, weather has always been important to the people of our province. It might mean the success or failure of a livelihood, and with the extremes we experience, weather can even be a matter of life or death. In this presentation, participants will learn about how the weather played an important role in the life of a settler over 100 years ago.
September 28 – School Days
In this session, participants will take a look back and compare how schools have changed in Saskatchewan since the early 1900s. Did you attend a rural one-room schoolhouse or a school in a town or a city? How did you travel to school? What did you take for lunch? Hear about school supplies, recess and what classroom life was like for our province’s settler children.
