Susan Anholt (2010)
Susan Anholt, a community leader and volunteer in Kanaston, Saskatchewan, is being celebrated for her unwavering commitment to the restoration of Kenaston's unique water tower. Anholt researched, applied for and obtained funding, sourced all building materials and arranged for their transport to the site, found and hired work crews, oversaw work and mounted the scaffolding personally to be involved in the restoration work which was completed in 2009.

Susan Anholt"Susan's single-handed achievement speaks loudly of her dedication to preserving Canada's rail history and her dedication to her community - located on an important CN feeder line in central Saskatchewan. We are pleased honour her effort," said Gérald Gauthier, Chairman and President of CRHOF.

Susan AnholtThe 40,000 gallon capacity Kenaston water tower was built in 1910 in the spring area just south of what was one-time Bonnington, Assiniboia, NWT. Built to replace the original 1889 tank, it is the oldest and the only remaining "tapered" tower, and is one of five remaining in Saskatchewan which at one time had some 400 water tanks dotting the province.
