A seven week road trip around Saskatchewan focused on connecting women was in Tisdale on Tuesday night.
Amanda Perrot with Grounded Goodness in St. Brieux set out over four weeks ago with her Saskatchewan Sisterhood tour.
“It’s been life changing to be honest, I have met so many amazing women – mostly women, that’s the whole purpose of the trip to connect with women business owners, women leaders,” said Perrot. “It has been eye opening, and a roller coaster and it’s been good, it’s been really, really good.”
Perrot said the events lift women up and she has received feedback from women who want to keep these events going and keep the conversation going.
Tuesday night’s event was held at the Sweet Cup Cafe in Tisdale where over 40 women gathered to engage in conversation and open the lines of communication.
Café owner Andrea Lutz said she was so excited about what Perrot was doing that she felt like she needed to be part it.
“She’s doing exactly what I am trying to do with the people and the women in this community,” Lutz Said. “Let’s feel this, let’s get through things together, share our stories, because everyone goes through the same stuff and people don’t realize it.”
Lutz ran a 6 week group where she invited all women in the community to the café for the ‘sweet cup connection’ to get women from different groups to socialize with women they wouldn’t normally get to meet or engage in conversation with.
The tour began in Melfort on July 8th and will conclude with an event in Humboldt on August 24th.
An event is being held Wednesday night in Carrot River, followed by a stop in Nipawin Thursday.

“I just hope that it will encourage people to come out of their shell and share their stories and just be open to other perspectives,” said Lutz.
