Dear Saskatchewan Aviation Museum Members and Friends of the Museum,

We’re pleased to share news with you of the happenings at the museum.
 
50/50 Tickets!
 
Today we have launched online 50/50 ticket sales. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the museum with our mission to keep Saskatchewan and Canada’s aviation history alive. Tickets can be purchased via the webpage below.
 
https://saskaviationraffle.ca/
 
Tickets: 1 for $10, 5 for $20, 25 for $50
Draw Date: Apr 30, 2021
Prize: 50% of ticket sales
 
Please support this event and encourage your friends, relatives, and neighbours to purchase tickets. SLGA and the on-line platform require that you be IN Saskatchewan at the time of your ticket purchase.
 
We’re Hiring
 
The board’s strategic planning session last December identified the need for full-time administration staff. To support this a new position, executive assistant, has been created. This is a huge step for the museum as we evolve from relying on volunteers to run the entire operation of the organization to having the support of full-time administration staff.
 
You can check out the job posting on the Careers page of the museum’s website, www.saskaviation.ca. Applications will close on Monday, February 15, 2021. We invite you to share this job posting with those you think possess the necessary skills.
