It's Heating Up In Calgary!`

Calgary is off to a good start!!!!!
November 21 you could find us at the annual Okotoks Holiday Light Up. A fantastic way to kick of the Christmas Season.
The weather could not have been nicer if we had ordered it especially for this night. As always the main street is shut down to vehicle traffic which is a good idea as there isn’t a sidewalk built which could hold the amount of participants this festival attracts.
Once Mark had parked the 18 Wheels of Christmas unit and had the stairs in place it was time for Chris, Janet, Kent and Colleen to work their magic keeping up with the crowds of people wanting to donate to the local Food Bank. It was a solid stream of people purchasing hampers, leaving purchased donations and cash.

The evening ends with a fireworks display and us turning over to Krysten, Executive Director, of the Okotoks Food Bank close to $3000.00 in cash, 140 prepackaged hampers and $500.00 in food donations. It took 2 pickup trucks to haul the food away!!!!!
