We have had a very busy spring and summer, as you have all seen, and we are going to have a busy fall. We are growing and expanding with the times and will soon have heated, family-friendly washrooms and will be handicapped-accessible to all.
Along with the new sidewalks and more improvements to follow, the park will become more and more user-friendly.
The park has been featured on two television programs – Global TV and CHCA News featured a half-hour program about historic points of interest (we have the discs of both interviews here at the park). We have also been featured on three radio interviews.
Darren Jones is back working on more sculptures so keep checking back on the progress. It’s great. The barber Tom Spinks is coming alive now. The Loggers are already done and the Greeter is there to entice you to see more. The small animals of the area can be seen in one of the trees and the tribute to the Seven Founders of the Park is being created with hands, hearts and faces of the community.
We held a quilt raffle on July 1 with the quilt being donated by the ladies of the Rimbey Historical Quilters who work all winter in the Smithson Truck Museum. Our lucky winner was Bud Reynolds. Congratulations.
