Provincial Capital Commission Honours Saskatchewan Military Families

Released on October 4, 2021

50 Traditional Afternoon Tea Packages Provided to Families 

The Provincial Capital Commission (PCC), Provincial Military Liaison and the Government House Historical Society are continuing their tradition of honouring the families of active and retired Saskatchewan members of the Canadian Armed Forces. 

"Our Saskatchewan service members have shown great dedication and commitment to the freedom, quality of life and opportunities we enjoy in Canada every day," Provincial Military Liaison Greg Lawrence said. "Their sacrifice is shared by their families who supported them through good and bad times. We thank each and every one of them for their service, and hope this small gift can give them the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience at home with their loved ones."

The Tea with a Twist packages include everything needed to host a traditional afternoon tea. Fifty packages will be delivered to Saskatchewan military families this week. In the past, the PCC held an in-person gathering of veterans and their families. To keep everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic, yet still mark the important contributions of Saskatchewan's service members, this will be the second year that PCC and the Historical Society create and distribute these kits instead.

The packages are home-made by dedicated volunteers from the Government House Historical Society and will be delivered for distribution to the Military Family Resource Centre for Southern Saskatchewan, located in Moose Jaw. 

The kits include: 

  • 2 tea cups
  • 4 scones 
  • 1 package of special tea blend
  • 2 butter tarts 
  • A letter of gratitude from MLA Greg Lawrence, Provincial Military Liaison

The PCC and Provincial Military Liaison are grateful to the Canadian Armed Forces and their families for keeping our country strong, free and safe.
