B’ford post office clock running in time for block party

Those in downtown Battleford without a watch or phone won’t have to worry about not knowing the time anymore.

The Battleford Post Office clock is up and running again, co-owner of the post office Jesse Crozier told the News-Optimist Monday.

Components to make the clock work are in good shape, Crozier said, and will require adjusting.

As of Monday, three of the four clock faces were working. The east facing clock face, Crozier said, needs to be repaired with the help of a machine.

Crozier expects all clock faces to be working in time for the July 18 downtown block party in Battleford.

The Battleford Community Spirit Group is organizing the event which is to include street festivities, food and entertainment, a farmer’s market with vendors, historical tours and wagon rides.

The event is on a Thursday as residents often travel to the lake on weekends. It begins at 4 and runs until 8 p.m.

Earlier this year, Gail Sack of the Community Spirit Group told Battleford town council one of the reasons for holding the event is to showcase the town to new residents.

Depending on how the event goes, Sack said the group could plan more in the future.
