Thank you Ag Society!

The words of the day were “Go big or go home”…so of course our hardy Ag Society members “went big.” The boys played on their big boy toys, and the ladies for the most part kept their feet on the ground. The result was the biggest tree in the campground decorated from top to bottom with the glory of the season. They’re a hardy bunch…withstanding cloudy skies and colder weather movin’ in.

Congratulations Carmangay!!

Blackspring Ridge Signage

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!

Thank You!

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.

-Sue Dahl

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.

Carmangay Library

Mission
The mission of the Carmangay Library is to provide the variety of materials, services, and programs necessary to meet the needs of all segments of the community for information, education, recreation, and culture.  
History
The Carmangay & District Municipal Library was formed by a Village of Carmangay bylaw on June 15, 1981. The Library was first housed in a room in the Grange Hotel and was opened to the public on November 30, 1982. The Library moved to its present location in the former Carmangay Village Office building in the Fall of 1984. The building dates to about 1912 and was renovated with the help of a C.R.C. Grant. The Official Opening was held April 15, 1985 in conjunction with the Village of Carmangay’s 75th Anniversary. In 1992, the Library became a founding member of the Chinook Arch Regional Library System.
