facility, featuring a design that artistically captures its geographic region. The circular,

SHARING SUCCESS

Volunteerism

The PHC team of volunteers joined with local organizations to

make a positive impact in the community through numerous

volunteer hours.

This year the PHC volunteers took time to help set up the 2nd

Annual Co-op Pumpkin Walk; this allowed the community’s

children to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment.

The PHC volunteers were a support to Big Brothers Big

Sisters in Yorkton. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a non-profit

organization that is involved in the development of our youth.

The PHC supported Bowl for Kids Sake, Golf for Kids Sake

and volunteered at their Car Show and BBQ. The volunteers

also helped with the Montreal Canadiens Alumni game that

was hosted in Yorkton.
