Fort Macleod Drug Coalition will host a free Party in the Park on Saturday, Sept. 14.
Party in the Park from 1-4 p.m. at Centennial Park promotes family unity and healthy choices.
The emphasis is on fun at the third Party in the Park, with music, free hot dogs, cotton candy, a climbing wall, bumper balls and bounce houses.
There will be information available about drug and alcohol abuse prevention and treatment that families are encouraged to take home and discuss.
The Fort Macleod Drug Coalition motto is, “Choice, not chance . . . Choose wisely!”
Party in the Park is for everyone in Fort Macleod, not just people experiencing difficulty with drugs and alcohol.
The coalition wants the community to come together for an end-of-summer celebration that will help to strengthen Fort Macleod.
The coalition wants to give parents and care-givers an opportunity to hang out and play with their children.
The coalition holds family fun nights at G.R. Davis school through the year to provide that opportunity.
Adults and children come together to play games in the school gymnasium.
Anyone interested in volunteering at Party in the Park is welcome.
Fort Macleod Drug Coalition members are Sharie Falk, Angie O’Connor, Liisa Gillingham, Val Campbell, Sharon Monical, Susan Simpson and Vera Crow Shoe.
Party in the Park is funded through a Community Prevention Project Grant from Alberta Health Services
