Bienfait- 1955 History Book

Bienfait, Saskatchewan, Canada

History of Bienfait Book- 1955
Published by: Bienfait High School Student Council

This book was an undertaking
of the Bienfait High School

It was printed in conjunction
with the Saskatchewan Golden Jubilee.

I quote most of my material in this web page, from this book, and always want to give credit where credit is deserved. It is with the forethought of the persons listed below, that the history of the Town of Bienfait is here today.

Thanks to you all!

I will write the credits as they appear in the front of the book. The old Printing press used was poor to say the least and some names are hard to read, but will do my best. If any errors in spelling etc please drop me a line
