CASINO FUNDS SUPPORT CHILDREN, YOUTH AND FAMILY PROGRAMS IN ROSTHERN AND WARMAN

Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Carol Teichrob

announced today that community groups in Rosthern and Warman have

received $15,000 in casino profits through the Associated Entities

Fund.



"The province established the Associated Entities Fund to distribute a

portion of casino profits for the benefit of Saskatchewan people,"

Teichrob said. "Since the beginning of 1997 more than $4.5 million in

casino profits have been distributed throughout Saskatchewan for

programs that support children, youth and families."



The Rosthern Youth Works Committee in partnership with the Town of

Rosthern received $5,000 toward the cost of developing and

distributing a community survey on youth-oriented issues in Rosthern.

The survey will determine local needs and provide input for the

development and implementation of an action plan to address the needs.



Students from grades four to 12, parents, community members and

seniors are targeted for the survey.



The Saskatchewan Valley School Division in partnership with the

Saskatoon East and West School Divisions, received $5,000 toward

training for Saskatchewan Rural Wraparound, a process of surrounding

and supporting families who are experiencing difficulty and have

complex needs with a team of family and community-based resource

services.



The Warman and District Recreation board in partnership with the

Warman High School SRC received $5,000 toward the cost of the

Warman Summer Youth Program which will provide informal skill

development and leisure activities for children and youth from

ages seven to 15 in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere.



The Associated Entities Fund received a portion of the profits

from Casino Regina, the Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford,

the Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert and the Painted Hand

Casino in Yorkton.
