The sign is up! First step in the development of our Black Spring Ridge Wind Farm information sight. This will be a great attraction to draw people into our great community! The landscaping, permanent placement of the blade is still to come! Thank you to EDF EN Canada, Enbridge and Mortenson Construction for working with our community!
-Mayor Kym Nichols
A huge thank you to everyone who came out to our Wild Pink Yonder celebration! To all our donors – who gave auction items, raffle items, baked cupcakes, the Ag Society for the supper, everyone who helped with the auctions, to all the volunteers who helped decorate the Village, to everyone who decorated their own yards, to the PINK committee (without whom, none of this would have happened) and to anyone I may be missing – thank you so much! Carmangay represented today and I am so proud!
Final numbers aren’t in yet but will be announced as soon as we know.
In addition, we have cases of water – 24 packs – for sale. $5/case. All proceeds will be added to the Pink Yonder fundraiser.
Great job Carmangay!
Residences, public buildings, signs, trees and posts, as well as the entrance sign off Highway 23, were all sporting pink for the occasion. Residents wore pink T-shirts and some even coloured their hair.
And then there were the many plastic flamingos, donated by a Lethbridge party company, set up near the village’s campground.
The riders’ tour of 23 Alberta communities raises awareness of breast cancer and funds for breast cancer research through the Cancer Research Institute of Northern Alberta.
When the six riders arrived in Carmangay Thursday, they were given a tour of Carmangay and the surrounding area by organizer Sue Dahl and her daughter Jasmine.
The riders told Dahl that the village was the pinkest they’ve seen yet.
