SBBC members massing at the Fast Gas Service Station at the junction of Highways #5 and #41 before journeying east to Bruno. A surprise addition to the tour was Bob Duncan in his 1952 MG-TD, Bob had left Val Marie at 4AM to join us. Dennis Billo in his MGA lead us into the beautiful grounds of the Prairie Ursuline Centre at Bruno, Saskatchewan.

In the early 70's Vic Ince and I, then members of the Saskatoon Sports Car Club, paid at least four visits to the Saskatchewan Transportation bus stop in Bruno while setting the last national CASC rallye in Saskatchewan. The bus stop had the best french fries and milkshakes I have ever had!


 

 
 

 

The organizers of the 2007 Cherry Festival provided the public with a wide variety of entertainment and educational fare. The displays and booths in the Ursuline Centre included information on horticultur. Various artists exhibited a variety of items including paintings, pottery and alike items.



 

 
 

 

Wagon rides were available and many youngsters seemed to be enjoying this ride.The cherry pit spitting contest didn't attract any SBCCers - too bad! Ed Aldred spent time recouping his hearing after losing part of his exhaust system - all I can say Ed is try riding in a 4/4 at 105 kph! As with many small villages there are unique gardens and buildings, Bruno is no exception - the old firehall in Bruno with it's beautiful tile mosiac upholds this tradition.


 

 
 

 

Our British iron definitely attracted the public interest - Dennis nice to see you supervising Ron. Pioneer Park is a great visit, the old Fordson tractor is a beauty and the pictorial display on the old Royal Bank, a true reminder of days past.



 

 
 

 

The Miller Family Troup who performed Dr Carters Medicine Show were very enjoyable so much so that neither Scott or I raised a camera to catch some of the action.

The old jail is rumoured to be the last one of it's kind in the province.

The last photograph represents a small part of a series stunning paintings found on the ceilings in an old brick house which is situated just south of the Ursuline Center. This beautiful house was built in the early 1900's. -
