Picnic in the Park another smashing success

The weather once again co-operated for the 27th annual Innovation Credit Union Picnic in the Park.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of the event, it went excellent," said Pat Friesen, Vice President of the Marketing Department at Innovation Credit Union. "The weather co-operated all day. Everything ran really smoothly and the main thing was everyone had a great time and that is what it is all about."

With 5,000 to 6,000 people turning out for one of the biggest events in Swift Current, the Innovation Credit Union is already looking forward to next years.

"We are already looking forward to the 28th annual Picnic in the Park and it will be held on the first Sunday in June."

Friesen says the four-hour event had many things for people of all ages to participate in.

"There were so many things to do. I know the kids really enjoyed the petting zoo, the Kin Train and the inflatables. So they really enjoyed those things along with all of the face painting and kids games. I think it was just the combination of having so many things to do that were all a lot of fun. Also the Fire Department was there, so there were so many great things to do."

Minister Christine Tell was also on hand at the park to make a special announcement.

"The reason she was there was to kick off parks month in June and being June 1st it was the perfect opportunity. They actually presented the city of Swift Current with a proclamation, so that is why she was there. I think she was very impressed with our day and our park and very happy to be there."

Even though there were over 5,000 people at the park, Friesen says the Credit Union does not profit from the event.

"This is not a money making event. This is an appreciation day for our members and community."
