Making downtown a bit brighter
Downtown Drumheller is looking a lot brighter thanks to a group of residents and businesses that have pitched in to bring flowers up the core.
The group, along with the Chamber of Commerce have purchased flower baskets to hang throughout downtown Drumheller.
Dave Carter explains the initiative is a win-win for the community. The baskets were purchased from DARTS through donations. Carter said they have received donations from businesses and residents for the baskets and purchased 12 to start.
They are using the existing infrastructures in the downtown core that were erected under a previous program, to hang the baskets. They have also lined up a crew of volunteers to help water the baskets.
Carter explains the project is being done in the spirit of cooperation.
To find out how to participate, contact Carter at 403823-2208 or the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce at 403-823-8100. Downtown businesses, residents and the Chamber have teamed up to spread a little colour throughout the core and purchased flower baskets to hang downtown. With the baskets are (l-r) Jolene Powell,
Deb Jungling, Maryann Vogel, Marley Henneigh of the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce, Dave Carter and Connie Funk of DARTS.
