Khedive Centre News!

The Khedive Heritage Recreation Club is located in the Khedive Public School. This school was in constant use from 1921 to 1976. In 1976 the school was closed. The school is now used as the Khedive Recreation Centre.

The old brick school is showing its age. We’ve had water leaking into the basement for the last few years due to: cracks in the foundation, drainage problems and deterioration of the brick exterior.

Khedive Rec Club members have already started some repairs. We have a contractor’s estimate to do the exterior brickwork repair for $33,500.00. We realize this will be an expensive undertaking and it won’t happen overnight.

The rec club is applying for grants, planning fund raising events and have a commitment from the R.M. of Norton for financial help to do these repairs, but it will take more.

In order to complete this project your help is needed. Any amount, large or small, and your support of our fund raisers will be greatly appreciated. Tax deductible receipts will be issued upon request.

Very few buildings this grand were ever built in rural Saskatchewan, fewer still are in existence today, let alone still in use after 90 years. To us it represents a last link to the early settlers of this area and symbolizes their faith in the future….

Volunteers, former Khedive area residents, new residents and friends, have really given til it hurts. Be it hands on or financial, ideas or giving items to the old school. Folks ripped out damaged walls, ceilings and insulation then built, painted, cleaned, dug, moved, installed and back-filled!

Application was made to “Heritage Saskatchewan” for help restoring the brickwork and thanks to LaCoste Masonry for the work they have done.

Fundraisers have paid to remodel the kitchen, repair the basement including exterior excavating and waterproofing and installing weeping tile and window wells. Thanks again.
