Do you or family members have fond memories of fishing at Meeting Lake Saskatchewan? Or perhaps swimming and playing in the water? Did your family rent a cabin there every summer?
My mother in law Yvonne Aumack Miller and I are compiling a history and photo collection of the Aumack Resort at Crescent Beach, Meeting Lake, Saskatchewan in order to preserve this information for posterity.
“We are actively collecting photos, records and memories of Aumack Resort, Crescent Beach, Meeting Lake, Saskatchewan”
John and Verna Aumack along with Verna’s mother Minnie Moss homesteaded along Meeting Lake shortly after they arrived in Saskatchewan in 1917. Meeting Lake is about 7 miles from Rabbit Lake and north of North Battleford, Sask.
The Aumack Resort was a booming place in its heydey. There was a slide in the lake for the kids and a diving board. Dances were held in the hall. My mother in law remembers a band called the Half Moon. The hall also served as a meeting place for church and a movie venue.
There were boat rentals, horseshoes, a golf course, cabin rentals and more. The Aumack resort operated from the 1920s (or 1930s) to 1959 when it was sold.
