Trail of Trees cre­ate magic

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Sub­mit­ted The Drumheller Mail

The Town of Drumheller and the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity are invit­ing peo­ple to cel­e­brate the magic of the hol­i­day sea­son and the spirit of giv­ing with them. Be­tween De­cem­ber 2 and De­cem­ber 15 the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity will be deck­ing its halls with beau­ti­ful Christ­mas trees, turn­ing the com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity into a mag­i­cal Christ­mas dream­land.

Busi­nesses, com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions and fam­i­lies are in­vited to do­nate and dec­o­rate an ar­ti­fi­cial Christ­mas tree which will be dis­played in the Trail of Trees at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. The trees will be later do­nated to a fam­ily who might not be able to af­ford a tree of their own. The event will be launched on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 2, with a fun com­mu­nity event with peo­ple check­ing out the trees, cre­at­ing dec­o­ra­tions for the BCF tree, and hot choco­late and cook­ies.

“We re­ally wanted to cel­e­brate the hol­i­day sea­son at the BCF with a fun Christ­mas event which also sup­ports our com­mu­nity” stated Dar­ren Goldthorpe Man­ager of Recre­ation, Arts, and Cul­ture. “I can’t wait to see all the cre­ations as we get into the Christ­mas spirit.”

“We are re­ally ex­cited with this new ini­tia­tive”, con­tin­ued Ju­lia Field­ing, Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer, “and if peo­ple can’t af­ford a whole tree they should feel free to group to­gether with friends and re­mem­ber home­made dec­o­ra­tions work as well as bought ones!”

To reg­is­ter, con­tact Char­lotte Stokes at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity to reg­is­ter a spot at cstal­gi­tis@di­nosaur­val­ or 403.823.1326. Dec­o­ra­tions can link with the busi­ness or be more of a tra­di­tion­ally dec­o­rated tree or a mix­ture of the two.
