Cheers to the Beefeater for offering individual turkey dinners for Christmas. It was really nice to have a full turkey meal for one. 

Cheers to the Estevan Mercury for printing special Christmas and New Year’s placemats for the residents at the Estevan Regional Nursing Home.

Cheers to all the retail staff that are going the extra mile by cleaning at tills and putting up with all the COVID regulations.

Cheers to wearing a mask in the winter. It keeps your face warmer when out shovelling or just walking. 

Cheers to Erin, Cheryl, Chantelle and Cassidy at the City of Estevan’s leisure services division for doing such a great job of decorating the walking track at Affinity Place during the Christmas holidays. It made walking very pleasurable.

Cheers to the Jay's Trucking driver who made a very special Christmas present delivery on the evening of Dec. 22. Going above expectations is greatly appreciated.

Cheers to all of those who chose to celebrate New Year’s in a smart and safe fashion. It’s nice to see that the Estevan Police Service didn’t have any impaired drivers to report this year.



Jeers to the people who flagrantly ignored the COVID-19 restrictions and had family gatherings which included several households during the Christmas holidays.

Jeers to those who continue to run red lights and put the health and safety of other motorists at risk.
