The Kleine Pakete is the Regina German Club’s first junior folk dance group. It is open for both boys and girls ages 4 to 12 years. Germany consists of many different regions, and each has their own unique form of folk dancing. Our dance instructor tries to incorporate the many forms and makes it fun for the children.
The group meets once a week at 6pm to 7pm on Monday evenings from September to June to practice. They are under the direction of the dance instructor Ms. Tamara Scrimbit. The group has participated in several cultural events in Regina, such as The Regina German Clubs Christmas Weihnachtsfeier, Tanz Zabawa, Spring Free From Racism, Mosaic Kick Off, and Mosaic) If you are interested in booking or joining the Kleine Pakete please contact the Regina German Club at:

The SGC receives grants through Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation which allows us to provide services to the community and to support our many member groups. We always ask that you, whenever possible, promote the Saskatchewan German Council, SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Lotteries as the funders of your events. To make it easier this is why we have our new “recognizing our funder” banners. There are a total of 3 banners, one is permanently located in Saskatoon, another in Regina and the last one will be available to any member groups outside of those cities.

If you would like the logo usage guideline from SGC sent to you, please contact the office.

Spring Time in the Queen City
Spring time at the Regina German club finds us completing a few more renovations. We replaced our front doors with more secure steel ones, and we finished bringing our women’s bathroom up to the same level as the men’s bathroom. The big reveal of the new bathroom was done at Mosaic and many people commented how nice they looked.
Spring in Regina finds many cultural organizations setting up displays to demonstrate their culture to their neighbors. The German club opened their doors to show off our music, dancing, food, and drink. Volunteers from all around Regina and area came together to make this event as successful as it was. Several thousand people gathered at the club to take part in the activities. Our Volksliederchor entertained the crowds with their songs and our Karnevalgesellschaft brought smiles to all in attendance with their dance performances from Sound of Music and a demonstration from the smallest of dancers. Our food options changed this year and many were very happy to tear into our new choices. Our chef, Bryce, put together some amazing Schweine Haxen. The honeys pork melted in your mouth, and the portion size was enough to make any good German happy. People stayed late enjoying the hot weather every night and enjoying the bands that played in our outdoor tent.
Following on the heels of Mosaic the Regina German Club hosted the SGC’s annual Teffpunkt. Family Fun day saw an influx of children that was very welcome. The children enjoyed the use of a bouncy house, played games, and had their faces painted. The adult attendees of the weekend were invited on tours of some of the features of our city including a tour of local brewery, Rebellion Brewing, a Genealogy session with Alvin Knoll, and a pretzel making session with Andrea MacLeod.

Yesterday, May 5th, the SGC attended YXE Connects – “a one stop shop for our community to access services and resources”. This was the first time such an event was organized for Saskatoon.
The event was held at the White Buffalo Lodge and at the City Centre Church with bouncy castles and a BBQ outside. It featured more than a dozen local organizations including, a clothing depot, professional advice on things like personal finances, haircuts and immunizations were offered, and the Saskatoon Library was there with a variety of books.
Our table was located between the Newcomer Information Centre and the International Women of Saskatoon.
This was a chance for SGC to promote our Immigrant Settlement Advisor’s work and the free services that are available. It also gave us the opportunity to let the community know of our many member groups.
We’re looking forward to attend next year again!
