Across Canada each year the Canadian Red Cross supports individuals, families and communities in many different ways.

Has the Red Cross ever directly helped you or someone you know?

We want to hear about those Canadians who faced adversity and made it through thanks in some way to the Canadian Red Cross: the life that was saved, the family that received shelter after a fire, the mother and daughter reconnected after being separated for years.

We’re hoping that Red Cross supporters like you have stories to share with us.

The Melfort and District Museum is located at 401 Melfort Street West, next to the fairgrounds. It features a Pioneer Village as well as an extensive
