Farewell to the Unity, SK Red Rooster

  We are sad to see an iconic building in Unity go. The Red Rooster was the first business to go up that served soft ice cream and make you sub sandwiches. It served gas and was a confectionery store so if you ran out of bread, milk or ingredients for your muffins that evening you could run down and grab what you needed. The Red Rooster provided a hangout location for all the young children in the summer giving them lots of wonderful memories to cherish. We used it as a landmark for directions to get to the Spa and now we will use the Country Car Wash as our landmark to turn right and you can see the Spa from Railway Road. Eileen Baptiste and the late Joe Baptiste were the last wonderful owners who gave this unique service to a small Saskatchewan town! Thanks, Geraldine Barrett

Sunrise Wellness Spa’s Transformation!

Our New Look!!!………….. Where are we going from here?? With 35 Years behind us, I have reflected over the many steps of change that have brought us to the edge of retirement. This is a journey and there have been many bends in the road along the way. When I first started I visited a consulting firm in Edmonton. After many hours of brainstorming I reluctantly removed “Mon-Gee” from my business name, a name that meant a lot to me. “Mon” was used because it represented my father’s surname and “Gee” for Geraldine. However it did not have ‘sales’ appeal. We developed a new marketing plan and expanded the business into a spa. Then came the big change. A computer program would make business more efficient so I embarked on the technology world. When I first started Pat Welter of Masterhand Designs was launching his career and made me my…
