Blueberries, Saskatoons, Oh My!

Saskatoons and blueberries are some of Sunrise Corner’s tastiest secrets.

Welcome Our New Marketing Plan!

To kick off the summer, Sunrise Corner held a launch for our new marketing plan Friday, April 26.

Those who came out to Zhoda for our public event were treated to a recap of videos from past seasons, hotdogs and refreshments, a fun outdoor scavenger hunt and a summary of the new marketing strategies Sunrise Corner hopes to implement in the coming years.

Sunrise Corner’s goal is to promote the nature, culture and events here in the RMs of Piney and Stuartburn. Through the funding from Partner for Growth and the marketing firm Changemakers, we have researched and polled to come up with strategies to grow and develop our reach.
