Volunteers needed

We are looking for volunteers to make this event a success. Lunch will be provided! Come out and support your community and meet some new neighbours. Tasks include help guide traffic, answer questions and monitor the site so items are disposed of properly. You can also volunteer your truck to help pick up items from residents who are unable to bring them to the community hall.

Call 403.242.0212 or 403.554.7454, or email if you can volunteer.
