It was a busy weekend of activity across Weyburn. 

With the temperatures reaching into the high teens, and the sun shining for much of the weekend, various organizations were out taking care of tasks to get their facilities ready for the spring and summer. This included baseball teams, soccer teams, and more. Of course, a number of people were also taking advantage of the weather by working in their yards as well. 

For the Weyburn Soccer Association, volunteers were out getting Jubilee Park ready for the first games of soccer for the year Monday night.  

“I’m going to venture to say that we have at least 30 people running around out here,” said Jason Roy, president of the WSA. They were getting lines painted, and getting the pitches in good shape for the start of their season. 

Meanwhile, over at Tom Laing Park, a work bee was taking place to clean up the field after the winter. This included the task of getting the tarps put up along the fences in the outfield, sweeping up the dugouts, raking the shale, and installing new overhead doors on the outbuildings and the press box.

At the Weyburn Golf Club, things were in good enough shape that the course opened for the season, with the front nine available, as well as the driving range.  

“As our world is more or less going back to the way it was, I think people are excited to be able to do activities and to participate,” Roy added. This was evident with the number of people getting out to do what they could to get ready for what should be a busy spring and summer throughout Weyburn.
