Battlefords area residents who want to show their support to the 2018 Saskatchewan Winter Games now have a chance to sign up as a volunteer.
The Saskatchewan Winter Games committee and supporters came together at the Civic Centre in North Battleford Thursday to launch the volunteer drive.
North Battleford Mayor Ryan Bater and Battleford Mayor Ames Leslie were the first to officially register to volunteer at the launch.
“It’s a great opportunity for citizens to get involved,” Bater said. “We need 1,200 people, so that’s an army of volunteers.
