Churches[edit]

Hang on, anyone who objects to the skewed emphasis in the article thus far. I shall return and add other matters in due course. For the time being, a history of the town churches provides a useful preliminary outline of the arrival and establishment of assorted ethnic and religious groups in town. Masalai (talk) 08:49, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. Actually my caveat was only to address the fact that when I first began expanding the stub this was the first matter I dealt with, primarily because it was easy and straightforward. Now that the article is filling out, the attention to this seems less disproportionate. If you recall, early critics of the Qu'Appelle article took exception to discussion of churches, whereas in the days before easy transportation and when television and radio (and with even telephone contact being limited, given that party lines were the norm) churches were a far more important focus of community life than they have been in our lifetime.Masalai (talk) 01:54, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Sask Biz[edit]

Section naming[edit]

Upon reading WP cities guidelines and WP settlements how to as a guide, I am not sure if the section labelled Military belongs, there is also some war items in history. Perhaps this needs to be re-vamped.SriMesh | talk 21:25, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

No, that's quite right. I don't quite know how that got in there. Participation in the two world wars was no greater or lesser in Grenfell than in other communities, though the Grenfell Legion Hall for many years did provide a local social venue, albeit that Grenfell veterans might often have found it enjoyable to repair to the Legion Hall in Regina to play cards, have a beer and re-acquaint with old friends.Masalai (talk) 01:58, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

"James Peers Dill" Grenfell[edit]

Can anyone find a book or website reference tying "James Peers Dill" together with Grenfell.SriMesh | talk 21:25, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

Now that the article has several sections it may be necessary to re-write the lead to provide an overview of each section in the article... lead section better articles settlement leads or city leads

  1. The lead should adequately summarize the content of the article. (GA criteria)
  2. There should not be anything in the lead not mentioned in the rest of the article. (GA criteria)SriMesh | talk 00:58, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
I quite agree, though perhaps we could postpone revamping the lede (does Wikipedia spell that word "lead"?!) till the article fills out a bit more and it is clear what shape the lede should take. What say ye? Masalai (talk) 01:59, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Community hall[edit]

Can someone advise what the crowd capacity is in the hall? I well recall a University of Saskatchewan Regina Campus (as it then was) choir concert there in 1974 but you can readily understand how after all this time I can't recall what the size of the audience was. Filled the hall and afterwards the social gathering place downstairs but that doesn't answer the question. I am somewhat minded to add such detail to the article albeit briefly. The town United Church has or had a pipe organ but the concert was held in the community hall where there is of course no organ so that item of the concert was omitted. I also wonder what the opening and closing dates of the movie theatre were. I saw "The Miracle Worker" there as a small child in 1963 but that of course is no indication of when the theatre began and ceased business. And what about the two Chinese cafes that were doing business on Main Street back then, and the closure of the grain elevators? (Where do farmers now deliver grain?)
