The Humboldt Leisure Services Department will be a vital element

in shaping the future of our community to be the place to live, play,

visit and do business.

MISSION

The purpose of the Humboldt Leisure Services Department is

to enhance the quality of life and be a catalyst for community

development in Humboldt and region.

Mayor’s message

Cultural, recreational, leisure and

sporting events are an important part

of our community life. Humboldt

has great facilities in our community

and close by. We are fortunate to

have many volunteers, community

groups and organizations that make

a wide variety of opportunities

available. We hope you will

participate in the activities, events

and programs that are of interest to you. There is something

for everyone included in this guide.

Humboldt is a Saskatchewan ‘In Motion’ community and

we encourage all residents to join in the physical activity

movement for health, social, environmental and economic

benefits. Healthy lifestyles will help our community achieve

its full potential.

On behalf of City council, administration and staff, best

wishes for an enjoyable, active, fun filled, spring and

summer.

Director’s message

Malcolm Eaton, Mayor

The City of Humboldt has had a lot

of success over the past year. Our

Department is particularly excited

about winning the 2007 Communities

In Bloom Competition and approval

on a Building Better Communities

Grant for upgrades to the Uniplex.

This all enhances the Quality of Life

in our Community. We should all be

proud of Humboldt. Over the next

year there will be a lot of improvements and upgrades to

our Department and to the City. We are all excited to see

these improvements and growth go forward.

As you can see in reviewing the Leisure Guide there are

many organization and volunteers that work hard to make

Humboldt a great place to live, recreate and enjoy life.

Please take the time to explore the many opportunities in

our community, after all a community is only as strong as

the people in it!

If you have an ideas or would like to see a new activity

in the community, please do not hesitate to visit the

Administration Office in the Uniplex or give us a call.

Have a great summer, participate and enjoy the many

opportunities!

Humboldt is moving towards being an

in motion City

Join the

movement!

Did you know?

1. In 1999, about $2.1 billion of the total direct costs

to Canada’s healthcare system was attributable to

physical inactivity.

2. $1.5 million in health care costs could be saved

with just a 10% increase in physical activity.

3. Through active outdoor physical activity

(walking, gardening and cycling), Canadians

not only improve their health but also help the

environment.

For more information on how you can get “in

motion” visit www.saskatchewaninmotion.ca or

www.inmotion.ca.

This Leisure Guide also has a wealth of information

on different programs you can get involved in. If you

have any questions about any of them call 682-2597.

Be Aware. Be Prepared.

Mosquito Season and the

Mosquito season means the presence of mosquito-borne

viruses such as West Nile.

Be aware of the potential health risk, and be prepared with preventive steps:

- Don’t stay out too long when mosquitos are active (dusk and dawn)

- Wear light-coloured long sleeves/pants when mosquitos are bad.

- Use approved bug spray.

- Remove standing water in your yard.

- Fix holes in windows/door screens.

Visit www.health.gov.sk.ca for more on West Nile Virus, a list of symptoms

and more detailed protection measures.
