After meeting with the Hanna Learning Centre board this past week, it was time to head east and meet with people at the other end of the riding. Windy and -25 is great door knocking weather, which I found out in Oyen before heading down the road to Acadia Valley.
They were hosting their Messy Maker playgroup fundraiser and Acadia Valley and District rec club ice to dice bonspiel. 28 teams from the area competing in a 5 day curling bonspiel to raise money for the Messy Maker playgroup and have an otherwise great time. Like every small community in rural AB, the people make the difference in fundraising, events and keeping their facilities going. And as usual at these events, the food and hospitality was fantastic!
And just to show how big our riding is - Drumheller all the way to the border...
