We are excited to celebrate 150 years of history. We plan to “Paint the Town” red and white with Canadian images to get everyone ready to join in the party spirit.
On Rodeo weekend (June 16-18), we will have a special Canada 150 float in the parade. That weekend we will also start a Scavenger Hunt of old and unusual items. Basic rules are that teams may have up to 5 members and the total age of members must be at least 150 years as of July 1, 2017. We hope this will encourage all ages to participate and work together. You must register to get a list of items and to be eligible for a prize. Collected items must be taken to the Hall on July 1 (exact time TBA). Locations to register are FCSS and the Library and more places might be added later.
Best Decorated House or Business
You can start now to collect red and white decorations or anything that is Canadian. Perhaps a flag, some red lights left over from Christmas or even try planting flowers that are red and white. Be creative and win a prize! Judging will be on June 30 and prizes awarded on July 1.
On July 1, we will have a “People Parade”. We will meet as a group at 1pm and walk to the Community Hall (no vehicles, scooters or bicycles, please). The exact parade route will be announced later (likely no more than a 10-15 minute walk) and water will be provided, courtesy of ATB Financial. You can plan ahead your red and white clothes/costumes, noisemakers, flags and anything else truly Canadian. We will have a group photo taken at the Community Hall.
The Hall will be open right after the People Parade. Displays will show our 23 Prime Ministers, as well as some of the “largest” Canadian icons. There will be games from 2 – 3:30 for children and perhaps even adults who want to test their knowledge of Canada -- so start studying!
Prizes for the Scavenger Hunt and Best Decorated house or business will be awarded.
Coffee and juice will be available at 2:30 and cake about 3pm.
Our history books “Shortgrass Country” will be available for purchase at the Hall.
