St. Albert Heritage Sites July 1, 2014


   Once again Canada Day (Dominion Day at some of our sites) has come and gone at the St. Albert Grain Elevators (SAGE), Father Lacombe Chapel, and the Little White School (LWS).  This year  visitors were able enjoy the lots of sunshine, celebrate Canada and learn about St. Albert’s heritage!

  

   We were excited to welcome more than 1000 visitors on July 1 to the heritage sites.  Our valiant staff and volunteers helped children craft glittery crowns to commemorate Canada’s monarchical heritage, learn to fold paper into little boats for water races in the “little pool” and concocted clues to help children find scavenger hunt stations set up around the park.  

A huge thank-you once again from all of us here to our volunteers; we simply couldn’t have pulled off such a successful event without the support our local community steps up to provide and this most definitely includes DAIRY QUEEN who drops off freezers filled with Dilly Bars as a reward to all of those who complete the scavenger hunt!

The annual “Great Canadian Flag Debate” happened once again at the Little White School where the Art Gallery of St. Albert was also set up and leading an art project activity.  Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who helped us out this year–we appreciate your enthusiasm!

Suffice to say, Canada Day was a busy day for us and we thoroughly enjoyed every second. We hope you did too, St. Albert!
