Friends, the season is upon us… Fowl Supper season, that is!
I’m writing to tell you that I enjoyed my first fowl supper of the season this evening in beautiful Strasbourg, Saskatchewan. And, man, was it ever good: Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, turnip, carrots, gravy, coleslaw… and then there was the pie! So much pie! There was apple, pumpkin, coconut, raisin – but I indulged in the rhubarb. So delicious. Such flaky pastry. It was sublime. And I got it all for a measly $10 (with proceeds going towards an elevator for the memorial hall).
Jealous? Well, don’t be. If you have wheels (or friends with wheels), you can take a scenic drive en route to one of the embarrassment of fowl supper offerings in Saskatchewan this fall – and there are plenty coming up, including next weekend in Sedley!

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
