Flood Help!

A few days ago, my son Rhys asked me if our village was doing something specifically to help flood victims in southern Alberta. I replied that we had offered our assistance to Calgary Mayor Nenshi, but beyond that we had organized nothing officially.

I have found out that local resident Carole Rowe has been driving down to High River unofficially to offer assistance. If anyone else wishes to donate time to the flood relief effort, Carole might be able to help you. Good on ya Carole! Thank you on behalf of all those you've helped!  You and your helpers are a credit to our community!

If you want to donate for flood relief in Alberta, please consider giving to either the Canadian Red Cross' Alberta Floods Fund) or to the Calgary Foundation's Flood Rebuilding Fund.  Both are doing good work to help people out!
