Wolseley is located 1 hour from Regina with a population of around 900 people. The Wolseley office also has a satellite office in Glenavon, a small community of 200 people located about 20 minutes southeast of Wolseley.
We are very active in both communities and hold an annual Customer Appreciation Day in each community – Wolseley in late spring and Glenavon in early fall. We barbecue hot dogs offer refreshments and door prizes for our clients to enjoy over the lunch period. Our client count increases each year for attendance.
We participate in the Exceptional Achievement bursary annually to reward a Wolseley graduating student and have done so for numerous years.
We have won the Infrastructure Grant once and donated the $5,000 to renovate the Wolseley Cenotaph. There were a public ribbon cutting event and speeches to showcase the site improvements – a paved walkway, bench, landscaping, and cleaning of the statue (to name a few). We enter a worthwhile community venture each year and look forward to again being able to financially support a major development in one of our communities.
We hold an annual Reading Contest in the Wolseley and Grenfell communities in which children from Kindergarten to Grade 6 enter a draw for a bicycle once they have completed 2 hours of reading each week of the contest.
Our employees are very dedicated to our communities. Their involvement includes Wolseley Recreation Board, Wolseley Economic Development Board, Souls’ Harbour, Grenfell Legion, Wildlife Federation Grenfell branch, Food Bank, Glenavon Lions Club, Glenavon Centennial Board, the We-Al-Go-Club, and volunteering at school functions and other community events such as bonspiels and annual fair days.
Our Team participates in the annual Support the Cause Walk. Through funds raised, we have been able to give back to our community through providing:
- New track uniforms for Grenfell High School
- New basketball uniforms for Wolseley High School
- A $1,000. Donation to Telemiracle
- A Donation to the Wolseley Hospital to benefit patients during their stay
The employees are dedicated to Western Financial Group and are proud to be associated with the Western Communities Foundation!
