Last week, St. Paul’s Hospital hosted their annual Community Day. Over 800 local school children and community members were treated to fun and food on the front lawn of the hospital. Over 100 volunteers from St. Paul’s Hospital and Saskatoon Health Region, as well as high school students from Tommy Douglas Collegiate, the Hospital Board and community sponsors, served hotdogs, fruit, water and popsicles. Entertainment included stage shows, face painting, games and display vehicles from Saskatoon’s emergency services.

“Another great day was had by everyone who came to take part and those that volunteered,” says Jean Morrison, President and CEO of St. Paul’s Hospital. “We host this event every year to follow the example of our Hospital’s founders – the Grey Nuns – in welcoming community and family as part of our healing mission as we work toward our vision for a community of health, hope and compassion for all. Thanks so much to all who volunteered and made this event so successful, and to those community members who joined us to celebrate.”
