When Wayne Boldt was 12 years old, he and his friend Neil decided to go on a two-day bike trip from Saskatoon to the grand opening of the Gardiner Dam on the South Saskatchewan River.
The dam, which is the third largest embankment dam in Canada and one of the largest in the world, officially opened on June 21, 1967.
“I didn’t think my parents would go for that, so I said, ‘Let’s call it our Canada’s centennial project. Maybe that will elevate it,’” said Boldt, who now lives in Caron.
