Zone de description
The Orange Benevolent Society of Saskatchewan was founded in 1923 by the Grand Orange Lodge of Saskatchewan, now the Grand Orange Lodge of Western Canada. This organization supports the Oranges Homes, which are facilities that care for children whose parents can no longer look after them. Their main facility is located in Indian Head, Saskatchewan. This location was purposed at a meeting in Moose Jaw. The organization has expanded and now operates Orange Estates, low-income rental homes for seniors. The organization is funded solely on contributions by the public and a large part of their fundraising is the sale of calendars. Mrs. E. M. Spence of Moose Jaw prepared the first calendar in 1944.
