Welcome to the Yorkton Brick Mill Heritage Society website
An annual dinner started in 2017 has become a major fuindraising event for the Society. From a small beginning in 2017, the dinner in September of 2019 was a sold-out event at St. Mary's Cultural Centre, raising $22,000.
Planning is underway for the 2020 dinner, to be held on Wednesday, September 30 if large gatherings are allowed again.
Other fundraising events are held throughout the year and will be announced here.
In the fall of 2019, Yorkton City Council approved a grant program for the Brick Mill Society which will consist of matching donations to a maximum of $300,000.
All donations and fundraising will be matched by the city, making this is a good time to make a donation to the Brick Mill Society. Every dondation will receive a tax deductible receipt and be matched by the City of Yorkton.
Socially-distanced Brick Mill volunteers, including Yorkton Tribal Council Chief Isabel O'Soup and others from YTC, got together on August 19 to rake the grounds at the brick mill in preparation for grass seeding, and to look after the flowers and trees already planted. Chief O'Soup made a presentation of $2,000 to the Brick Mill Society to support the preservation and development of the mill site. Accepting the contribution was Board Chair Vern Brown.
