The Beatty Heritage House is a busy place in the summer.
The beautiful historic home is open to the public from 9 – 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Summer student Alison Walker provides the maintenance for the grounds and also provides tourist information for anyone who happens to drop by.
Walker, who graduated from Rimbey High School last year, was born and raised in Rimbey so she is familiar with the town and its history.
“I like it here,” she said. “It’s really fun.”
New this year to the Beatty House is an activity called Super Mondays. This is held every other Monday from 2 to 4 p.m. and is open to youngsters who are looking for something to do on a summer’s afternoon.
Last Monday the theme was rodeo and, as a special activity, the children were given rides on Bandit, an Appaloosa pony.
Walker will work at the Beatty House until Aug. 23. She is returning to Red Deer College in the fall to resume her studies in dental hygiene.
