Supporters of Station 20 West pose in front of a pile driver to break ground on the Station 20 West site on Wednesday, July 20. Wright Construction, which is doing construction management for the project, estimates that the building will be ready for occupancy by July 1, 2012.
Rick Peddle, President of the Saskatoon Kinsmen Club, presents a cheque for $225,000 to Val Veillard, Vice Chair of the Station 20 West Board of Directors. This donation from the Kinsmen Club puts the Station 20 West "over the top" in terms of the money it needs to begin construction this summer. Station 20 West still needs to raise approximately $500,000 to fully equip the grocery store.
We're starting construction!
The news we've all been waiting for! With the help of generous donations from Affinity Credit Union, Joe Remai, Jim Yuel, the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon, Wright Construction and many others we now have enough money to begin construction! Lorne Wright, our construction manager, estimates that we'll have shovels in the ground by July 1, 2011!
Over 2000 individual donors, many of whom have given us multiple donations, and more than 150 organizations, including unions, have donated most of the money that we've raised to date. The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) have provided us with hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants as well as long term, interest free loans.
But without the support of Affinity Credit Union, Joe Remai, Jim Yuel and the Kinsmen Club we could not have proceeded with the construction of a two storey building in 2011. These individuals and organizations have been critical to the success of our capital campaign and we thank them for their generosity and support.
Mr. Joe Remai presents Sheila Pocha, Chair, Station 20 West Board of Directors, with a cheque for $275,000 on May 4, 2011.
Jim and Lisa Yuel present Sheila Pocha Chair of the Station 20 West Board of Directors with a cheque for $100,000.

Royal Gala Dinner
The Second Annual Saskatoon Chefs' Association Royal Gala Dinner, held on Saturday, February 12, was a sold out success! More than 350 people were treated to a wonderful six course gourmet meal prepared by some of Saskatoon's top chefs. The entertainment was provided by Anastasia Winterhalt, Soprano, who was accompanied on the piano by Kerry Agnew.
Len Usiskin, Station 20 West Board member and General Manager of Quint Development Corporation, met with the Saskatoon Chefs' Association Executive on March 1, 2011 to thank the Chefs for choosing to partner with Station 20 West for their Second Annual Royal Gala Dinner on February 12, 2011.
The Roxy Rocks for Station 20 West
On January 16, 2011 over 400 people poured into the Roxy Theatre for a concert to benefit Station 20 West. The owners of the Roxy Theatre generously offered the space for this event. Brenda Baker emceed and the performers included Andrea Menard, Eekwol (Lindsay Knight), and the Bridge City Chorus. People living in the core neighborhoods commented on how important it was to hold the event in Riversdale near where Station 20 West will be located.
Members young and older of the St. John Bosco Roman Catholic Parish gather to present a cheque to Station 20 West for $10,887.25. The parish donated its Christmas offering to the Good Food Junction Cooperative Grocery Store.
Churches support Good Food Junction
See the video. On Nov 24, leaders of Saskatoon's Christian Churches signed a letter committing themselves to support the purchase of equipment for the Good Food Junction Co-operative grocery store through "prayers, practical assistance, and where appropriate, fundraising". You too may support this initiative of Saskatoon's Christian churches by designating your Station 20 West donation towards the Good Food Junction grocery store.
