The third annual Rhythm ‘n Ribs in 2019 was a huge success with amazing attendance and really good weather. The event had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021, but is coming back in 2022 at an earlier date -- June 24, 25 and 26.
“Rhythm ‘n Ribs seems to be very well received by the community. This was our third year and our attendance is strong and people appear to love the food; certainly the food vendors are happy. We made some changes to the music line-up and you could see the energy in the crowd in the evenings,” organizing committee chair Bruce Thurston stated.
“We were also able to raise a substantial amount of money that will be used to help The Health Foundation purchase new digital mammography equipment needed for the breast cancer screening program at the Yorkton Regional Hospital. That equipment is vitally important and will be used by 5,000 women annually in this region.
“Anytime you can put on an event that is good for the community where people have a great time, and, raise funds for something that will benefit a large number of people you are doing something right. We have a great committee who have all been part of building this event from the beginning, and they should feel good about their work putting on this event because it is clearly good for this area,” he added.

An event like this requires lots of volunteers to be a success, and to help raise money for The Health Foundation of East Central Saskatchewan.
With government providing only a very small portion of the funds required to buy necessary equipment for our healthcare facilities, The Health Foundation is dedicated to raising the money needed to look after the healthcare needs of all of us in this part of the province.
Volunteers help out in many ways:
Volunteers are asked to work any of the following three to 3 1/2 hour shifts, and are provided with shirts that indicate they are volunteer assistants:
