A Turtleford man will be recognized at the Saskatchewan Co-operative Merit

Awards, a program that honours outstanding contributions to co-operation

and co-operative development in the province.

Durold Textor will be honoured along with six other Saskatchewan residents

in a celebratory banquet on Tuesday, October 15th in Regina. The Merit

Awards ceremony is the key activity in Co-operatives Week in Saskatchewan,

October 13th-19th.

"Co-operatives are a way of life in our province, providing needed goods

and services to Saskatchewan people," Industry and Resources Minister Eldon

Lautermilch said. "Individuals like Durold who are dedicated to co-

operative development in the province are the reason co-ops have a

substantial impact on our economy and support and enhance the well-being of

our towns, cities and rural areas."

Textor has dedicated his life to leading and promoting co-operatives. He

has served as a committee member with the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool,

Turtleford Credit Union, and is current President of the Turtleford Co-op.

Durold has twice served as a Federated Co-operatives delegate and strongly

supports his community by volunteering for various projects.

The Saskatchewan Co-operative Merit Awards Program, now in its 23rd year,

is co-ordinated and co-sponsored by Saskatchewan Industry and Resources and

the Canadian Co-operative Association, Saskatchewan Region. Since

inception 191 awards have been distributed.

Award recipients are selected based on the outstanding contributions they

have made to co-operative development at community, provincial and national

levels. Individuals are nominated by co-operatives and credit unions and

then selected by representatives of the two sponsoring organizations.
