Mary and Harold Orr – Family Introductions

Oct 26, 2023 | In the Legislature

Mr. Love: — Thank you, Mr. Speaker. To you and through you, I’d like to welcome a large delegation here — I think split between a couple galleries — to celebrate two very special residents of Saskatoon Eastview. Harold and Mary Orr are with us today. Incredible individuals, an incredible couple, and a wonderful, incredible Saskatchewan family who’s come here today to hear Harold and Mary be recognized and celebrated in their Assembly.

I’ll save the accolades for a member’s statement to come in just a few minutes, Mr. Speaker. But I would like to take this opportunity to welcome my constituents Harold and Mary to their Assembly and as well to recognize their family members who have come here to celebrate with all of us today the lives and the marriage of these two wonderful people.

I’d like to welcome their son, Robert Orr; Rachel Friesen, granddaughter along with her children; Joseph Pradzynski, grandson along with his family of seven; Walter and Ruth Pradzynski, along with David Pradzynski and his family; sister, Alice Williams; son, Randy Orr; and daughter, May Thiessen. If I’ve missed anyone, I sincerely apologize. I’ll look forward to chatting for a few minutes when I’m able to slip out of the Assembly later this morning. But I want to thank you for coming here today. I know it’s a journey to get here to your Assembly. They came down from Saskatoon to be here. And thoroughly want to say how much I appreciate Harold and Mary as constituents, the discussions that we’ve had on their doorstep. Mr. Speaker, I’ll admit that I have not spent the amount of time with these two that I would like to to gain the wisdom from their lives of service to our province. And I’ll have more to say about that in an upcoming member’s Statement. But at this time I’d ask all members in the Assembly to give Harold and Mary and their entire family a warm welcome to their Legislative Assembly.
