Communithon committee unveils new logo design

The Weyburn Communithon is celebrating their connection to the community by revealing a brand new logo.

Earlier in the year, they launched a logo contest, and received lots of great submissions from the community.

Brad Istace submitted a design that had many great elements, and another element was incorporated from another design submitted by Sabrina Kraft. The Communithon committee will be using this logo on their new website, Facebook page, posters, advertising and media releases.

The committee also loved a poster design that was inspired by Grayson Kopec, which will soon hit the streets of Weyburn that promotes Communithon.

Artists from the community are encouraged to create their own Communithon poster, focused on the “Blast to The Past” theme, and submit it to them at CommunithonCommittee@sasktel.net. These posters will be placed throughout the city in the months leading up to Communithon.

This year, Communithon will be hosted at the Weyburn Royal Canadian Legion on Friday, October 25, 2019. During community consultations, there were many who wanted Communithon to return to its roots at the Weyburn Legion, and organizers are happy to be back in the downtown core for the annual fundraiser.

With their production partner of Access 7, work is already underway behind the scenes to ensure a great Communithon.

Funds raised during Communithon help support many local programs and services offered by community agencies. Donations made to the Communithon will stay in the community of Weyburn.

The committee has also finalized their list of 2019 community agencies. They are Big Brothers Big Sisters Weyburn, Canadian Mental Health Association, Canadian Red Cross, Community Low Income Centre, CNIB Foundation, Envision Counselling and Support Centre, Inclusion Weyburn, Spinal Cord Injury Saskatchewan, Weyburn Care-a-Van Society, Weyburn Special Care Home Auxiliary and the Weyburn Youth Centre.
