  1. Drake

    Drake is a rural Saskatchewan village that lies just west of highway 20, approximately 11 KM south of its intersection with the Yellowhead Highway. It has a population of about 247 people. Drake is mostly a farming community, supported by the crops and livestock of the surrounding farms. However, several successful large-scale businesses, Drake Meat Processors and Bergen Industries, were founded in and operate from the village, keeping it from becoming a loose connection of farms. The local school, Drake Elementary School, is used by elementary-aged students from Drake. After Grade 8, students go to the nearby Lanigan Central High School to complete their secondary education. Despite decreasing enrollment, DES finds strong support in the community; however, recent changes to the school division structuring across Saskatchewan have left its long-term future in doubt. Drake is home to the 2010 Senior Saskatchewan Hockey Association Provincial C and Long Lake Hockey League champions, the Drake Canucks. Home of former NHLer Robin Bartel, misspelling found on hockeydb.com and wikipedia.org as "Robin Bartell".
