Festival of Trees Saskatoon: Decorate Our SEIU-West Tree!

SEIU-West is excited to be back at the Festival of Trees in Saskatoon this year! Thousands of visitors to the Festival are delighted when they arrive to see a collection of beautifully decorated trees, including our very own SEIU-West tree!

SEIU-West is especially proud to support this popular event as proceeds will benefit Saskatoon City Hospital’s Medical Imaging Department with an upgraded Fluoroscopy Suite. They’ll also replace the department’s aging portable x-ray unit with digital technology. Having the newest and best technology means clearer imaging, faster diagnoses, more efficient treatments, and improved safety. 

As is the Purple way, we want to support this great cause with the use of a contest! We know decorating a tree is a wonderful way to spread holiday cheer  –  that’s why we’re holding a contest to determine who will be our SEIU-West Tree Decorating Team! If your team wins, you’ll all be invited to join the decorating day at the Western Development Museum on November 22 helping to make our union’s tree, “I’m Dreaming of a Purple Christmas”, become a reality! All your lost wages and expenses will be covered by SEIU-West! Decorations will also be provided.

How to enter?

  • Teams can be no more than 2-4 people, and all team members must work at the same facility.
  • As a team, we ask that you answer the following questions:
    1. Why does your team think SEIU-West is the best union in Saskatchewan?
    2. How does your team build solidarity and Purple Pride at your workplace?
  • Send your team answers to Catherine.Gendron@seiuwest.ca 

Deadline?

The deadline to enter is November 12.

Bonus!

The winning team will not only get to decorate the tree, but they’ll also win the SEIU-West decorated tree that will be on display at the Festival of Trees to showcase at their workplace!
