Winter Carnival Update
On February 25, 2017 in collaboration with Kids on Track, Boys & Girls Club, and Fun Team Alberta, we had a large turnout of over 300 children and adults attend our Winter Carnival. Community league volunteers served chili with hot drinks. Bannock was prepared and cooked over outdoor fire pits. Carnival games included tug-of-war, kicksleds, ring and bean toss, skating and hockey. Our MLA Lori Sigurdson joined in the festivities and former Dynasty Oiler teammate Randy Gregg played hockey and gave pointers to aspiring young hockey players. A good time was had by all!
