The Town of Drumheller is celebrating the completion of one of the latest and largest projects in the town’s history. On Wednesday, July 4, the Badlands Community Facility was given it’s grand opening. The building had its soft opening at the beginning of March. At the celebration, residents and dignitaries, such as MP Crowfoot Kevin Sorenson, MLA for Drumheller-Stettler Rick Strankman, and the Drumheller Town Council, gathered in the main foyer and on the upper level. The celebrations began with speeches by dignitaries and those who worked hard to make the building a reality. Sorenson was excited to see the building essentially ﬁnished. “It feels good. It’s a building is going to be used for a long time. I’ve driven by many times over the course of the construction, but once you see it ﬁnished, it really is a great feeling. The facility, as time goes on, will enhance the community,” said Sorenson. Afterwards, Sorenson read greetings from the provincial Minister of Transportation, Ric McIvor, who could not be in attendance. In the provincial greetings, McIvor praised the facility, stating it was something the whole region could be proud of. Mayor Terry Yemen then spoke on behalf of the Town of Drumheller. After the ceremony, Yemen expressed how happy he was with the building and gave some insight into the future of the project. “It feels incredible, we’ve had a great response. This is one of the most signiﬁcant things built in our town. It’s up there with the Tyrrell Museum, hospital, and penitentiary,” said Yemen. “We’re focused on
fundraising right now, so we can move ahead with phase two of the facility.” Tony Lacher, co-chair of the steering committee, and Koren McDougald, cabinet member of the fundraising committee, expressed their pride in the facility and thank those who helped make it possible. Afterwards, members of the Drumheller Town Council, previous council, and Sorenson gathered to cut the ribbon, which was tied across the main stairs. Mayor Yemen and Bryce Nimmo unveiled a plaque, listing those who helped make the facility possible. Attendees were treated to a barbecue, cake, and live music by Hoodoo Voodoo by the banquet halls and outdoor patio. There is some work left to do, but Guy Latour, Business Manager for the facility, was

For the staﬀ, being so close to completion has given them time to focus on other areas. “For us, we’ve been focused on getting the building running.

Stuff the Bus fills Food Bank Summer kicked off with the annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive in benefit of The Salvation Army. This year Encana put a challenge out to the Drumheller community that the company would match cash donations dollar for dollar and non-perishable food donations were matched at $2 per pound, up to $10,000. The generous Drumheller community easily achieved that goal. Lt. Matt Sheils, left, accepts a donation of $10,000 from Darci-Jane McAulay Encana’s Group Lead for Community Relations & Investment. photo submitted

SPRING Heritage Garden taking shape Patrick Kolafa | inSide Drumheller
Between cloud bursts, work is back on track this summer for the completion of the Heritage Garden. The Badlands Community Garden Society has been diligently working on the park, commonly known as PetroCanada Park, creating a downtown green space that will allow residents and visitors to reďŹ‚ect, and enjoy, as well as learn about native species of plants and xeriscaping. Last summer, with design in hand they began working on the garden. This summer, armed with volunteers as well as a Community Initiatives Program (CIP) grant, they plan on making the vision a reality. Last fall the society learned it would be receiving a CIP grant for about $31,000 from the Government of Al-
berta. This grant has allowed them to The garden is more than just pretty It will be user friendly with wide hire two students to work on the proj- ďŹ‚owers.
