Delia rallies for Small Town Saturday Night
Delia may be a small town, but it is a big fan of Gordon Bamford, and a wish to see him come play.
On behalf of the Delia Ag Society, Nicole Devaleriola has nominated the community for the Small Town Saturday Night contest and is reaching out to fans to support its bid.
The Small Town Saturday Night contest is presented by the Big Valley Jamboree. To show its appreciation for the rural communities throughout Alberta that supports the Jamboree, it awards a community under 20,000 with a chance for a concert.
“If your town wins, Gord Bamford comes,” explains Develeriola. “There are 31 towns entered and we are going to try. Our community sure does need the economic boost and our small town could use something good go-
ing our way.”
“I’m just a member of the Delia community and I also really love Gord Bamford, so there are two good things to come of it.”
Right now, there are more than 30 in the running and fan voting is open until February 14. This winnows the list down to 10 finalists.
“When they select the top 10, they will send a camera crew to the community and will take a video of our town, and then those 10 videos go online to be voted on for two weeks,” she explains. The winner will get the concert in April.
To get Delia to the final she is hoping for support from the surrounding community.
“Our town only has 186 people, but it does have a big surrounding area so we are hoping that Drumheller and Morrin will help us and try to rally,” she said.
