Gull Lake hosted the first annual Winterfest event in 2013. The one-of-a-kind event was designed for the residents of Gull Lake and to attract visitors from surrounding communities. There have been changes made to the event over the years, and new features added in an effort to make it more enjoyable for attendees. When the pandemic struck, the event was cancelled. With the Pandemic restrictions removed would you like to see the Gull Lake Winterfest Event be restarted in 2023?

Today, Gull Lake Events received a request from Mr. Frank Atchison. He was the engineer of the last CNR passenger train to travel to Regina on June 2, 1984. The news media covered the event, and they were on the train with him. Unfortunately, he has lost the tape that held significant sentimental value for him. He tried contacting the new media outlets that covered the story, but they no longer have the tape. He believes a resident of Gull Lake has a copy. Unfortunately, many years have passed, and he cannot recall the name of the Gull Lake resident. He thinks the local is (or was) a farmer and has a lawyer son (or daughter) living in Saskatoon. If you know who this Gull Lake resident might be, please send a message to Gull Lake Events or call 306-672-7499, and I will pass on the information.

During my first term on the council, I had the opportunity to work closely with a marketing expert who assisted in the development of the town's website and other initiatives. In order to learn more about Gull Lake and its neighbouring communities, he came to Gull Lake for a tour of our trading area. I took him for a drive to see Maple Creek, Eastend, and Shaunavon. When the tour was over and we were back in Gull Lake, I asked him how we compared to our neighbours. He remarked that our residential areas and recreation facilities were attractive, but that our downtown appeared very tired. The vitality of a town's economy can be gauged by the appearance of its downtown, which should be a source of civic pride. To that end, the town council joined the Communities in Bloom Program and embarked on a downtown beautification project. As a result of the creation of a façade improvement incentive, many downtown businesses have recently painted their buildings, which has contributed to the revitalization of the downtown area. The Wong Guy Shoe Shop's façade was recently renovated by the town's Economic Development Committee, and a crosswalk was installed in front of the Lyceum Theatre. The Town Council contracted Safe Sidewalks Canada in 2016 to eliminate trip hazards after residents complained about the condition of the town's sidewalks. Safe Sidewalks also gave the council an evaluation of the condition of all the town's sidewalks. Many of the town's sidewalks are still in good condition, but some are failing. The council thought a good place to start repairing sidewalks would be downtown. In 2018, the Town Council authorised Solid-State Rubber Paving to fix a portion of the sidewalk in front of the Town Hall. The material used in front of the Town Hall is made of rubber, and the repair cost $7,303.08. The council wanted to evaluate the product to see how it would perform. While the product appears to be durable, it may not be suitable for alley aprons. The rubber could also be coloured, so it wouldn't have to look like pavement. Concrete sidewalks are the most expensive option, but they also last for a very long time and are likely to be the most cost-effective option overall. Pavement is more expensive than rubber, but it cracks over time, has a shorter lifespan than concrete, and its appearance blends in with the street. We have put in a lot of effort, and the downtown area looks much better now than it did when we first began our beautification efforts. However, we must devise a strategy for our downtown sidewalks. We've tried to maintain them over the years, but their cracking and crumbling appearance is at odds with the storefronts. It will take community support and a plan to repair the downtown sidewalks. The plan would have to address the type of repair that would be used, the order in which the sidewalks would be repaired, and how it would be paid for. Perhaps a portion of the paving levy could be used to aid in the completion of the project. Repairing the downtown sidewalks will not happen overnight; it will require community support and a plan, but it is certainly doable. Together with the Town Council, the Economic Development Committee can design a downtown revitalization strategy and communicate it to the community. A downtown revitalization strategy would not only significantly improve the appearance of our downtown, but it would also demonstrate appreciation for our local businesses, as we would not have a town without them. It would also send a positive message to potential new businesses that Gull Lake is open for business. It could all start with a plan. Blake Campbell

I was recently browsing the https://greatsouthwest.ca/ website. This is the second Saskatchewan Tourism website I've found that barely mentions Gull Lake. The only thing you can find on the website for Gull Lake is where to get gas. This is not anyone's fault, but rather an indication that we need to re-evaluate our communities tourism potential and approach to attracting tourists. This fiscal year, the government of Saskatchewan is spending $5 million to assist in the expansion of the province's tourism industry. Cypress Park's attractions and capacity have increased over the past few years. The Grasslands National Park is also attracting more visitors every year. The Great Sandhills also seems to be increasing in popularity. An antique train for short rail excursions will soon be operating in the town of Eastend, which is doing a great job of attracting tourists. This year, I have noticed the town of Shaunavon has taken an active interest in the increasing attracting tourists to their community, and Gull Lake should consider doing the same. Aside from our recreation facilities, our town's location in Southwest Saskatchewan is an important selling point. Gull Lake is located in the heart of Southwest Saskatchewan, which is too large to explore in a single day. Our location makes Gull Lake the ideal destination for tourists doing day trips in Southwest Saskatchewan and for overnight stays for tourists. I am the owner and operator of Campbell's Accommodations. I see the potential firsthand. People stay with us and visit the Sandhills, Eastend, Cypress Park, Grasslands Park, and Swift Current.  The tourism industry in Southwest Saskatchewan is much larger than you might think and Gull Lake should re-evaluate its tourism potential and its approach to attracting tourists. Attracting more tourists to Town would help the local economy and maybe even present us with other potential opportunities. Every year, thousands of tourists pass by our community; all we need to do is give them a reason to stop. Blake Campbell Gull Lake Events
