RCMP preparing for a ball

Three RCMP detachments are going to host an event that will give people an extra reason to look forward to Valentine’s Day, while they support a valuable cause in the southeast region.

The RCMP Regimental Charity Ball will happen on Feb. 14 at the Beefeater Plaza. Cocktails will be served at 5:30 p.m. and supper will be at 6:30. Comedian Kelly Taylor will provide the entertainment, starting at 9 p.m.

The event is being hosted by employees from the Estevan, Carlyle and Carnduff RCMP detachments, as well as the Integrated Border Enforcement Team. It is open to the public and it will involve some RCMP tradition. There will be several RCMP members in attendance in their ceremonial red serge.

In an email to Southeast Lifestyles, Sgt. Jeff Clarke with the Estevan RCMP said the main purpose is to raise funds for Southeast Regional Victim Services, but to also put on a formal yet social event for people in the southeast corner.

The event will also have a couple of speakers. The keynote address will be courtesy of the commanding officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, Assistant Commissioner Mark Fisher, and South District Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP Superintendent Kevin Kunetzki.

Tickets are $75 each and those who attend are asked to wear semi-formal attire.

For more information, contact the participating RCMP detachments at 306-637-4400, 306-453-6707 or 306-482-4400.
