Saskatchewan Lost a Champion
In August Mr. Greg Hanwell, SCC Board Member, businessman, retired rugby player, beer expert, amazing father and husband, passed away.

Greg loved to talk business and politics and as a business owner, had the perfect venue to listen, rant, and listen again. His participation at our Chamber events was always meaningful and productive. On behalf of the SCC family, I pass on our condolences to Carrie and the kids.

In Greg’s obituary, Carrie thanked their village – family, friends, customers, and in our case, Chamber folks. Everyone who was part of Greg’s village was blessed and we know it.
