In the late 70's the skating rink and curling rink were joined together, by a beautifull Recreation Center. The "Rec Centre" features a 75 foot painted mural depicting life on the prairies "then and now" and was painted by Regina artist Ingrid Kalder. Bowling lanes, billiards, movie rentals, a fast food outlet, and a minature golf course contribute to a year-round operation.

A Senior Citizens Activity Centre was also built in the late 70's. It has a large activity area, a kitchen, billiards, and also houses a library and "The Mushroom Patch" where locally made crafts are sold when it is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays. From September to April, Senior Meals, a hot meal prepared by volunteer ladies in the area, are served every Wednesday at noon at the Senoir Centre to locals who are age 70 or older. Many regular weekly activities go on at the Sr. Centre, including Whist, as well as special events. One of the groups that utilizes this facility regularly is the "Border Line Quilters" group. They semi-annually host a Quilt Show at the Recreation Centre which is incredible!

The South West Settlers Museum was started in the 80's. It is located at the Sports Grounds just outside the Village. The Loomis Hall was moved as well as one of the finest houses built in Frontier, the original R.M/Royal Bank Building, and the Dunkeely School was moved in from 15 miles north of Loomis.

Judy's Korner Tavern features a mural of the original Main Street in Frontier painted by local artists, Judy Erickson and Shari Leden. Another mural, located on the outside of "Sonja's Sunshine Shop", is a detailed portrait of the prairie landscape. It was painted by the art students of June Busse, a Shaunavon artist.

Many community events take place within the Village of Frontier, one of which is the Fowl Supper convened by the Ladies Rink Club every October. The strong Norske heritage prevalent in our area is reflected in the Ethnic Supper, held semi-annually, which features traditional Norwegian "lukefish and lefse". That heritage also shines as the community celebrates "Syttende Mai" every May which commemorates Norway's Independence Day back on May 17, 1814. A sampling of traditional Norwegian dress along with an abundance of Norweigian baking and singing make the day special.
