Over this long weekend, Ms Eclectic and I will be visiting Bredenbury, Saskatchewan, the town where she was born and raised. The town is having its centennial celebration.
Bredenbury is a very small town that was, at one time, one of many minor stops along the main CN rail line, providing fuel and water for the steam engines.
From the first page of their website,
The Town of Bredenbury has 364 residents. Bredenbury is a quiet and beautiful community. Bredenbury is a very community orientated place, with many volunteer organizations, including the Lions Club. It is a peaceful place to live, with all modern conveniences.
Bredenbury has all the necessary amenities, including: grocery store with bakery, hotel with grill, butcher shop, hairdresser and esthetics shop, high speed internet, cell phone service, artificial ice skating rink, parks, gas station, mechanical shop, car wash, SGI licensing agent, Chinese restaurant and many carpentry businesses.
They are going all out for the centennial celebration, with a parade, parties, social get-togethers, dances, community breakfasts, etc.
We have visited there a few times over the past several years. I'm looking forward to going back.
