Rimbey and District Chamber of Commerce is busy working behind the scenes to come up with a theme for the town.

Rimbey and District Chamber of Commerce is busy working behind the scenes to come up with a theme for the town.

Chamber president Jackie Stratton said the idea is to create an “architectural flow” giving the commercial section of the town a similar theme.

Stratton noticed other communities such as Sylvan Lake and Lacombe have successfully incorporated such themes which are related to their specific municipality.

Lacombe’s interconnected historic mural depicts daily life in Lacombe between 1890 and 1910. Painted in the historic downtown area, the murals are a colorful, realistic snapshot of Lacombe’s heritage.

Stratton agrees the murals are a great way to promote the town, but notes there are other possibilities, as well.

“Murals are a great way to promote such a theme, but there are other ideas as well. I’m excited about it.”

The chamber executive is preparing a power point presentation which will be shown to the members later this summer.
