Update: New Friends

Rob Waldner (Rose City Memorials) timed it perfectly. On the last fine day of October, just before the temperatures dropped, Rob set up his equipment in Tomahawk Park. He brought the compressor, the portable sand pot, his protective gear, and the rubber stencils with the names of the Museum’s newest Friends. 11 of the bricks in the granite mosaic were inscribed this year. Of course, the bricks and just about everything else in Saskatchewan, are totally covered with snow right now, but Rob did take photos of the work done that day.

Happily, we had much more interest than anticipated, and a list has already been started for next year! For more information about the CMMM’s Friends of Tomahawk Park fundraising initiative, please click here.

Friends of Tomahawk Park 2022

Let’s get the bricks inscribed before the snow flies!

In 2012, as part of the Town of Cut Knife’s Centennial, the Friends of Tomahawk Park fundraising initiative was created. This is a landscaped spot along the walking path, which has at its centre, a large area paved with grey granite bricks. Many bricks have already been inscribed with the names of supporters, and many still remain blank.

The cost to have your name, and a partner’s or additional family member’s name, put on a brick is $100, with a portion of that going towards the cost of inscribing the brick on site by Rose City Memorials. To maximize the donation portion of the purchase, we wait until 10 to 12 bricks are ready to be sandblasted. Currently, 3 supporters have been waiting for a while to see their names added to Friends of Tomahawk Park. Who else is interested in a brick? Let’s get a dozen inscribed before the snow flies!

Take a walk through Tomahawk Park and the Museum grounds on the next nice day. It’s a beautiful spot and well worth maintaining. The CMMM celebrated its 50th Anniversary last year. Its longevity is directly linked to the support we receive from individuals and families with a link to this area.

To purchase an inscription, please email, or speak with Lyle Cronk, Town Council Representative on the Museum Board, who is overseeing this. The purchaser will receive a tax donation receipt for $50.
