The centennial celebrations to commemorate the incorporation of Swift Current as a city started in grand style with around 3,000 people attending the Centennial Day Extravaganza at the Credit Union iPlex on Jan. 15. The event took place exactly 100 years after the City's incorporation on Jan. 15, 1914 and the focus was on celebrating the community's past through historic exhibits, community booths that also presented the history of various organizations and an extravaganza performance with drama, dance and music.

 

The Great Plains College and the Swift Current Robotics Club signed a partnership agreement on Jan. 9, 2014 that resulted in the creation of the Great Plains Robotics Club. Under the terms of the agreement the college will provide the club with space for meetings, storage, construction and testing of new robots. In return the club will recognize the college as a visionary partner for the duration of the agreement. The event included a demonstration of the Swift Current Robotics Club's frisbee shooting robot that was built last year for the FIRST Robotics regional competition in Calgary.

Lyric Theatre Christmas Matinee, Dec. 14, 2013

Written by

The 5th annual Lyric Theatre Christmas Matinee continues a tradition that started many decades ago at Swift Current's historic theatre, when a Christmas movie was shown to children. This year's matinee took place on Dec. 14 and 15, starting at 2 p.m. on both days. The program started a classic Disney short film from 1952, followed by an on-stage theatrical production by members of the Swift Current Little Theatre group, carol singing with local musician Michael Eckert-Lyngstad and storytime with Tekeyla Friday. Children also made Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer gifts during a craft session before the big moment when Santa arrived.

The CP Holiday Train rolled into Swift Current on a bitterly cold day, with a wind chill of around -46 degrees Celsius at the time of its arrival. The weather conditions delayed its scheduled arrival in Swift Current, but people waited patiently in their vehicles and then braved the cold to welcome the train in the city. Deputy Mayor Denis Perrault welcomed the train to the community and CP employee Scott Nelson presented a cheque of $5,500 to Swift Current Salvation Army Captain Michael Ramsay. Melanie Doane and Doc Walker provided the musical entertainment.
