At Watrous Mainline Motors, we take pride in supporting the community that has supported us since we opened our doors in 1962. We are always glad to support events, organizations, and teams not only in our local community of Watrous, SK, but in our neighboring communities of Manitou Beach and Young, among others.
In May of 2016, we partnered with Watrous Elementary School for the Buick Drive for Your Students event. Each completed test drive equaled a $20 donation to the School from Buick Canada. We were able to raise $10,000 for Watrous Elementary through this event, which enabled them to build a new, outdoor basketball court.
In November of 2015, Mainline Automotive Group, including Watrous Mainline, Rosetown Mainline, Mainline Chrysler, Kindersley Mainline, Virden Mainline, and Mainline RV & Marine, dontated $125,000 to the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. This contribution will be used to fund an ECHO exam room in the new Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan, providing the space needed to "diagnose and treat cardiac abnormalities in children." Over the years, Watrous Mainline has made many contributions towards the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan as well. Being a family owned and operated business, we know that family is the most important thing and being able to contribute towards a foundation which gives families hope and opportunity for a healthier future is important to the entire Mainline family.
Within the community of Watrous, we provide support and sponsorship to local hockey teams, baseball teams, as well as to the local dance school.
We have contributed to various community improvement projects throughout the years, most recently to the Village of Young Ice Resurfacing Project which raised money to purchase a new Olympia ice resurfacer for the rink. Also we were proud to contribute to Watrous and District Ambulances fundraiser to purchase a Zoll AutoPulse, an automated CPR device.
Making a contribution to Telemiracle each year is very important to us. We see in our community the positive impact the Kinsmen & Kinnettes foundation has on the lives of so many individuals.
The Frozen Tongue Challenge raised $17,779.61 for the Watrous Fire Department to go towards replacing the Rural Fire Truck Engine 2. This challenge was between Deputy Chief Andrew Matheson and Watrous Mainlines Jeff Siegfried. The one who rasied the least amount of funds had to stick there tongue to a frozen light post. A close race but Andrew was the victor.
