Mount Royal Community Fun Day

Mount Royal Community Fun Day

Saturday June 9th, 2018

11am to 4:30pm


The Mount Royal Community Association is excited to host our 6th annual Community Fun Day event with FREE entertainment for the community. The event is free & open to the public. Everyone is welcome to attend!

The Mount Royal Community Day will take place in Mount Royal Park next to Howard Coad School from 11am to 4:30pm.

Please join us for an afternoon of activities, food & socializing with your neighbours!


Garage Sale:

The Mount Royal Community Association will have a garage sale table at the event to raise funds for Mount Royal community events & programs.

To donate any items, please email or call Larry at 306-384-3426 or 306-717-3276 & we can pick up the items at your convenience. Thank you for your donation.



Lunch – There will be a concession stand with BBQ hamburgers, BBQ hotdogs, pop & water available for purchase.

On-site – There will be tables & chairs to sit at while enjoying the entertainment, plus we have large tents *just in case* it rains or is really hot.  (It’s hard to predict the weather in Saskatchewan!).  There are washrooms available in the school.

Drop-Off – We will have a designated area next to Mount Royal Park where vehicles may drop off people at the entrance to the event.  This will hopefully make it easier for people with limited mobility or with children to attend & not have to walk so far. There will be no parking along this small part of the street as it will be reserved as a drop-off & loading zone.  This drop-off zone will be located on Avenue T North in between Howard Coad School & the Mount Royal Park (close to the intersection of Avenue T North & Rylston Road)

…………. How do others presenters feel about an evening with Saskia & Darrel …………. 

“We are so glad your “walking shoes” brought you to Montgomery Place tonight. You connect so well with your audience through the words you write & sing. You sing of roads & journeys, trains & elevators, lands that shape us, & of gratitude, faith & love. Just like in your elevator song where the grain pours out like “liquid gold,” your songs pour out over the audience like “liquid gold.” Until we meet again, we’ll “keep the porch light on.”
—– By: Lesley Newman, St. David Trinity United Church, Saskatoon

………….  What do the fans say …………. 

Uplifted my Spirits!! I wanted to thank you both for the wonderful show. It uplifted my spirits & I could see many others around me. From the bottom of my heart, I just want to let you know how much your music, voices & spirits touch all who are lucky enough to be in the audience. Thanks again, we have a couple of CD’s now so we can listen again, & again………. —–Randi & Art. Nipawin

See you on stage! “The first time I heard the song “Laura’s Kitchen” I knew Darrel & Saskia had something special. The rest of the songs on this CD measure up to that standard. Heartfelt lyrics, friendly melodies, great vocals all supported by Darrel’s intricate acoustic guitar. Saskia more than holds her own with sensitive electric bass. Their live performance matches the quality of the CD. With the stories around the songs, it all adds up to an enjoyable evening of entertainment. A very comfortable visit to “Laura’s Kitchen”. See you on stage.” ——Gary Fjellgaard

Great Singing & Musicianship. Saskia & Darrel have assembled a great batch of songs on “songbirds”. They’ve obviously put in their time playing together, & it shows on this album; full of great singing, musicianship, & heart-felt original songs. ——Steve Dawson

Catch One’s Breath. Saskia & Darrel: What a fabulous show! Between hilarious stories & poignant song lyrics accented by extraordinary harmonies, there was hardly a moment to catch one’s breath. It was an evening none of us will forget for a very long while! Thank you on behalf of the Anne Murray Centre for an outstanding performance.” ——Susan Belliveau-. Springhill, Nova Scotia
