Save the Rose
The Prairie Rose Stage was built in 2009 when Uwe Wojdak decided to fulfill his dream of creating a performance venue on his rural property, Hayloft Acres, near Sherwood Park, Alberta. Community members are raising funds to help pay the property taxes.
Since its inception, the Prairie Rose has hosted several fundraisers and festivals. Uwe’s friends and nieghbours contributed to the landscaping, building of the stage and the electrical services needed. Over the years, talent both young and old have had the experience of performing on the outdoor stage to welcoming and appreciative audiences. Uwe Wojdak, owner, has always promoted and encouraged new comers to the entertainment industry. Many established acts have also graced the Prairie Rose Stage. They include Ian Tyson, Jim Gray, Celtic Fusion Illusion, Cold Feet, The Gords, Dale Ladouceur, Dahlia Wakefield, Angela Mackenzie, Bobby Cameron, Darrell Barr, Joe Public, many more. The property taxes unfortunatley have fallen into arrears and there is an urgent need to help Uwe to raise $10,000. to pay the County of Strathcona their property taxes. We will be raising some of the needed funds through the event held on April 4 at the Newcastle Bar. More money will be required to reach our goal of $10,000. Your funds would be appreciated. We are hoping to hold several future events at the Prairie Rose Stage this year. Thank you for considering this opportunity to help Save the Rose.
