The girls are excited as we prepare for Nationals. We hope to continue our success there.” - Coach Jason Larner
The Angels lost their first game against Saskatoon Selects A before a heavy downpour on Friday of the provincial playoff weekend. It seemed questionable whether they would be able to play on Saturday due to wet diamonds, but parents, coaches and other community members pulled together to get a couple of diamonds going Saturday morning despite the puddles that had been there the night before. All games continued for the weekend. After handily beating Regina Kaos and Prince Albert Aces the Angels suffered a loss against the Saskatoon Co-op Selects Saturday evening but still ended up in second place in round robin play. Another game against the Saskatoon Co-op Selects Sunday morning resulted in a win giving them a bye straight to the final where they met the Saskatoon Co-op Selects yet again. They played hard to top them again for an exciting gold medal win.
Coach Jason Larner said of the provincial playoff weekend, “The girls played the team game we have worked hard all year to put together on the field. They played solid defense, were disciplined at the plate and aggressive on the bases.” The team is now getting ready for tough competition in Kitchener, Ontario. “The girls are excited as we prepare for Nationals. We hope to continue our success there.”
Masen Sideroff has played for the Twin City Angels since the creation of the club in 2013. She says, “I’m so proud of all my girls and the effort put into the great weekend of ball we had. I am excited to see what comes for us on the next step!”
The team roster is Payton Allan, Danny Bertoncini, Jodi Bouvier, Brady Gaucher, Macie Kuppenbender, Kalei Larner, Megan Laskowski, Carlie Meikle, Brooklyn Renneberg, Alexa Ridgewell, Morgan Ripplinger, Mackenzie Rowan, Brooklyn Rowley, Sydney Rowley and Masen Sideroff. Coaches are Jason Larner, Colleen Rowley and Mary Bertoncini. (Two of the players listed are players from the PA Aces who are joining the team at Nationals, Macie and Morgan).
You have a chance to check out the girls play in Warman this Wednesday (July 31) at 6:30 pm at Prairie Oasis #6. Admission will be a Toonie or a bag of bottles to help get the team to Nationals in Ontario! Come out and watch some great ball and support the team!

On the last Wednesday of each month, community members have the opportunity to chat with local RCMP officers over a cup of coffee at Warman McDonald’s Restaurant. The “Coffee with a Cop” program is meant for citizens to feel free to sit down and visit with members of their local RCMP allowing them to discuss community issues and get to know the local officers. The officers in turn have the opportunity to build relationships within the community, interacting with citizens in a casual setting outside of the crisis situations that typically bring community members and officers together.
Come sit down with a police officer from your community for a coffee and a conversation. No agenda or speeches, just chance to ask questions and get to know your RCMP officers.” - Warman RCMP
Don’t be shy! Stop by McDonald’s in Warman on Wednesday, July 31 at 10:00 am and have a visit with our local officers. They look forward to having a chance to chat with you!
It may be mid-summer, but the volunteers with the Warman Community Association (WCA) are hard at work. The volunteer group is preparing for their annual Craft & Bake Sale in November. WCA President/Chairperson, Kaitlin Riley, leads the group and organizes the event planning and vendor registrations.
The non profit organization works to raise funds for various initiatives to help enrich the community throughout the city of Warman. One of their hallmark priorities is to ensure that all funds raised stay within our community through the support of programming or infrastructure projects.
"The Craft & Bake Sale will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 9 am to 3 pm. We host unique local vendors and their goods for a fantastic event!" says Riley, "We are 60% sold already!" The event features local crafters and bakers that usually do not have a venue or forum to display and sell their unique creations to a large market. The event is well attended in mid-November as people are looking to find gifts for the Christmas season. A limited number of multi-level marketing companies and products are allowed, however, they are limited to one table from each company.
Riley notes that while table registrations are brisk, she still has room for more vendors to sign up. Vendors can complete theregistration form online and submit them electronically to secure their spot. Visit the website registration page for more details.
WCA is a non profit organization here to help enrich the community of Warman and all funds raised stay within our community." says President & Chairperson, Kaitlin Riley, "At the Craft Bake and Sale we host unique local vendors and their goods for a fantastic event!”

If we need an example of how to recognize the people in our lives that we cherish, there is no better example than this token of profound appreciation for long-time Warman resident and volunteer, Brenda Stokalko.
Brenda Stokalko is retiring from 11 years of volunteer service from Sonia's School of Ukrainian Dance where she served six years as club president and relocated it to Warman.
She gave many people so many great memories and I wanted to thank her for that, on behalf of everyone that she has helped over the years." Amanda Kirkpatrick, owner of Relish Photography.
Amanda Kirkpatrick, owner of Relish Photography in Warman, met Brenda several years ago when she was doing a photo session for Sonia's School of Ukrainian Dance. Kirkpatrick says, "I continued to see her and her kids every year at photo day. She was very supportive of my business and in turn I started to support her business (Kalko's Hair Design).
"We got to know each other over the years and we really connected over our chaotic lives as business women and mothers!" says Kirkpatrick, "When I heard that her family was retiring from Ukrainian Dance this year, I knew that I had to do something special for her. She had been the president of Sonia's School of Ukrainian Dance the past couple of years and has done so much in terms of booking me, scheduling, and lining up volunteers for photo day and I wanted to do something to let her know how appreciated she was - not only by me but by the dance group, her kids, and everyone who benefited from her hard work."
Pictured above, left to right: Brenda, daughters Alexyn & Bianca, Sonia's Dance Logo, Sonia's Dance troupe perform
Sonia's School of Ukrainian Dance, a competitive Ukrainian Dance Club about to start its 37th year, is a registered non-profit group for ages three to 18 as well as an adult group. Sonia's will be starting its sixth year in Warman this fall.
Brenda has just finished her 11th year with the club and has served as the Bingo Coordinator, Costume Coordinator, Vice President, and President. "Along with that, when we moved the club from Saskatoon, I was on the team of veteran parents to help save the club from dissolving entirely. So we can add promotion and marketing to my list of duties as well," says Stokalko, "I have also lead the parade involvement, Telemiracle performances and fundraising, Ukrainian Day at the Blades, senior home performances, Summer Ukrainian Dance Camp, as well as the archives for all of the 36 years of pictures and memories in albums."
The move to Warman was extremely successful. "Before moving we faced closure and were left with less than 10 dancers and five families. In the first month of pre-registration we had 35 dancers sign up in Warman," explains Stokalko. "Sonia's Ukrainian Dance has grown from there up to 50 dancers, including adults, and we now have five instructors for the club. The adult group, now in its fifth year also started in the move to Warman, first as a recreational group and now has become competitive.
"Relish Photography has been so great for us as a club. I asked Amanda to do our club photos in our second year in Saskatoon and she has done an amazing job at capturing the Ukrainian culture and showcased the costumes in their beauty. When we made the move to Warman, she was more than willing to help with unique ideas for ad shots and promotion. She has been a key to our new 'brand' in the new location," Stokalko says.
"We were welcomed with open arms to Warman as the only cultural dance group and won the Community Group of the Year in 2014. We also work with assisting dancers who wish to go farther in their future with their culture and Ukrainian Dance. Since we have been in Warman, we now have had five dancers audition and been accepted in Pavlychenko Folklorique Ensemble, Saskatoon's own world traveled professional dance troupe."
Sonia's School of Ukrainian Dance is a family club, we have the best dance dads and moms! The instructors applaud our dancers for having the best attitude in class as a club, the dancers are complimented on their exceptional behaviour in public performances," comments Stokalko.
After considerable thought of how Brenda could be recognized for the achievements, Kirkpatrick decided to make up a photo collage for her, for which she went back into her archives and chose a photo of Brenda and/or her kids from every single year they were in dance and included, "Thanks for all the memories..."
Brenda Stokalko, you are an inspiration to everyone around you, a hero to your club, and a true cultural ambassador bringing vibrancy to the City of Warman! We all say, "Thanks for the memories!"
