Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: After traveling the world, working in the jet-setting high finance business, and then subsequently owing his own construction company in Florida, life brought Blaine back to his roots and hometown of Maple Creek, Sask, Canada, where his dad and mom owned the local bakery and pool hall and his childhood memories of growing up on the prairies of Sask. make you smile.
