Fort Macleod residents invited to annual Party in the Park

Fort Macleod Drug Coalition will host its fourth annual free Party in the Park on Saturday, Sept. 13.
Party in the Park from 1-4 p.m. promotes family unity and healthy choices.
The Fort Macleod Drug Coalition motto is, “Choice, not chance . . . Choose wisely!”
Party in the Park has a new location this year due to the ongoing renovations to the playground and construction of the new spray park at Centennial Park.
Party in the Park will take place at the Scout Hall and adjoining ball diamond.
People are advised to bring lawn chairs and blankets on which to sit, because there are no picnic tables at the Scout Hall.
As always, the emphasis is on fun at Party in the Park with music, 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.
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.
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 Lucille Provost.
Party in the Park is funded through a Community Prevention Project Grant from Alberta Health Services.
The coalition holds family fun nights at G.R. Davis school through the year.
Adults and children come together to play games in the school gymnasium.
