    Spectators may watch from anywhere along the parade route but must maintain the appropriate 2-meter physical distancing between household groups.  Masks are mandatory where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

If you are feeling unwell or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please remain at home.
The parade and fireworks will also be live-streamed on Facebook for anyone unable to attend.

Jig’s Corner Stop Cafe is excited to serve Porcupine Plain & Area

we are a multi-generational family-owned business who, during COVID lockdown in Spring 2020, had a crazy notion to try something new! Thus began the inquiry into “what’s going on with the old Double J building”!  

We called and asked questions, but in the end just had to be patient until that FOR SALE sign was placed on the building. Thankfully, all our stars aligned and we were successful in securing the building for our new adventure! 

Many hours have been put in from three generations of our family to get the café on the highway up and running, and we are excited to share it with you!  We are kicking our journey off with a limited menu to start, which will include a small variety of burgers, subs, sides, appetizers and ice cream.  We will slowly expand our menu and ice cream bar as time passes, so be on the lookout for what is new at Jig’s Café!

While we may not be able to offer dine-in service at this time, we look forward to the day when we can host you in our establishment.  At this time, we are able to serve you at our drive-through or at counter for take-out!

Visit their Facebook page to check out their Menu, and phone 306-278-3090 to place your order for pick-up! 

BEHIND THE NAME:  Little Jig is a name our son/grandson/nephew, Reed, acquired from his great Auntie Gail when he and his mamma were living with her in Saskatoon.  It was a name that stuck!  It is something we all still call him when we are reliving our memories we had with him.

The Town of Porcupine Plain would like to recognize our collaborations with and the contributions made by the RM of Porcupine #395. 

Not only do the Town and RM join forces in operating the Porcupine & District Fire Department (along with the RM of Bjorkdale – Division 1), we also jointly operated the Porcupine Regional Waste Management Authority (PRWMA).  The RM of Porcupine has taken over the waste site location, where they now operate the Porcupine Transfer Station.  We are still working together with all partners to have the PRWMA decommissioned completely.

The RM of Porcupine contributes yearly to facility operation costs; these funds are provided directly to the Chase Place Arena, Curling Rink and Larwood-Shaw Memorial Swimming Pool.  The RM also assisted with the renovations for the Medical Clinic at Quilly’s Community Place and contribute toward doctor recruitment efforts and incentives. 

Last year, we were also successful in creating the new STARS Landing Pad, ensuring residents the swiftest takeoff in their time of need.  The RM and Town continue to work together on the maintenance of the landing pad and the airstrip.

Between the Town of Porcupine Plain and the RM of Porcupine #395, we have been able to offer Koral Kriger full-time employment, which has proven to work out wonderfully for all.

The RM of Porcupine #395 has been splendid to work with.  Thank you for your invaluable partnership and efforts to create a viable and sustainable community.
