Lieutenant Governor's New Year's Day Levee, Regina
January 1, 2011
The Lieutenant Governor's New Year's Day Levee is a tradition that began on January 1, 1884 when Lieutenant Governor Edgar Dewdney held the first New Year’s Day Levee in Saskatchewan. The Levee provides an opportunity for the public to exchange New Year’s greetings with the Vice-Regal couple and enjoy the magnificent surroundings of historic Government House.
This year, Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart and Mrs. Naomi Barnhart extend an invitation to everyone for the annual New Year’s Day Levee that will take place on January 1, 2011, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at Government House in Regina.
“I hope that residents from across the province will join us at Government House on New Year’s Day to take part in a tradition that began in 1884”, said Lieutenant Governor Gordon Barnhart. “Naomi and I look forward to meeting the people of Saskatchewan at historic Government House, a treasure and source of pride for our province.”
The Levee is free of charge. Lieutenant Governor and Mrs. Barnhart will exchange greetings with guests in a receiving line. Visitors will be served seasonal refreshments, and enjoy entertainment and tours of Government House.
EVRAZ Place has agreed to provide free parking at the Lewvan Drive entrance. A free shuttle service will be provided between the parking lot and Government House (located a short 5 minute drive away at 4607 Dewdney Avenue).
