Canada Day Celebration to look different this year

The Coleman Community Society is planning safe Canada Day activities for Crowsnest Pass residents.

Due to the ongoing restrictions surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, Canada Day celebrations will look different than it was in previous years.
President of the Coleman Community Society, Jane Ann Reimer, says it was important to find ways for people to still celebrate Canada Day.

"We thought it would be nice for the community to at least have some way of looking forward to the first holiday of summer and celebrating with family."

Reimer says decorating homes around the community would be a good start for celebrations.

"One of the things we hope residents will do is extra decorating in their homes so that the streets will be more colourful. We also thought that if enough people decorated, people could drive around and look at what people have done around the community."

Reimer also says that there will be different things for kids and students to do as well.

"The Coleman Community Society is going to sponsor the colouring page for the younger children. That's one way that people could start their decorating. We're also hoping we might get some submissions from older kids of their own art work or a poem or something like that as well."

Reimer says there are also plans to have a couple decorated vehicles that will drive through the community for residents to see.

"Maybe we can get a few more vehicles to join. If people were just on their doorsteps, maybe we could have more than one vehicle and just drive through the area."

Reimer also asks people decorating to post photos on social media.

"As they celebrate or decorate, if they could consider posting on Facebook and Crowsnest Network so that other people have an idea of where they could go to see it from a safe distance."
